In a recent interview surrounding the release of his latest box office release ‘Dil Bole Hadippa’, chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor confesses that he is a big cricket buff. And his role in DBH, where he essays the character of a cricket coach in the metropolitan, couldn’t have come at a better time in his career, just when he has embarked on a steep upswing.
I got a call from yashraj films one fay. I was introduced to the director and the writer. I love playing cricket and they offered me the role of a cricketer. I thought it would be a good film in my career. I am a big cricket buff. I have been playing cricket ever since I was three. I played for my school. I would open the innings for them sometimes. I played cricket in college too.
I was thrilled when I was offered the role of this 28-year old guy who has to coach his dad’s team. It couldn’t have come at a better time.
That’s another love of Shahid apart from dancing and Kareena that we now know. Shahid, we would love to see you shake a leg or two at the wicket someday.
