Why Shahid Kapoor had to take shower for two hours before returning home
It was a known fact that Shahid Kapoor's next film is going to be Kabir Singh but the day the teaser of the film was dropped online, fans were in for a surprise as Shahid Kapoor as Kabir Singh stunned one and all. From his dialogues to his body language and alcoholic avatar, fans loved it all, Shahid Kapoor reveals that it was difficult to play the role of Kabir Singh, an alcoholic surgeon because for all those who don't know, Shahid Kapoor is a teetotaler in real life.
In the teaser, we have seen that Shahid Kapoor is boozing, smoking cigarettes and openly saying curse words, and since Shahid had to smoke beedis and pretend to snort cocaine for a major portion of the film, the 38-year-old-actor reveals that before going home to his children- Misha and Zain, the actor used to take a shower for almost two hours every day. "I don't endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn't easy and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smells before I could return home to my children," informed Shahid.
