Shahid Kapur has two upcoming releases lined up: Mahesh Manjrekar's Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi -- which hits theatres on December 23 -- and John Mathew Matthan's Shikhar, which is slotted for a December 29 release.
Having two back-to-back releases is tricky for any Bollywood hero. But Shahid is nonchalant.
"I have no problems about that. These two films are of different genres and my role is completely different in both the films," he says.
After a successful debut with Ishq Vishk (2003), Shahid's career has not yet taken off, as far as the box office is concerned.
The last film he did was Deewane Huye Pagaal, a comedy, with Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal. But it failed to drive the box office crazy.
Ditto for Fida and Dil Maange More last year, which sunk without a trace at the box office.
But, again, Shahid is nonchalant when you point it out to him.
"When I did Ishq Vishk, no one wrote about it; but that went on to become a hit. About Fida and other films, there was too much of buzz but that didn't click. So, you never know what will click in this industry," he says.
