Shahid revealed the challenge of finding scripts that offer something new to the audience. Despite receiving constant suggestions to do more films, he emphasized the difficulty of discovering innovative narratives, especially in the love story genre. He expressed his excitement for ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya,’ seeing it as an opportunity to present a love story that hasn’t been explored before.
While talking about ‘Kabir Singh‘, Shahid shared that the character and the entire journey were novel and shocking for him. However, after that project, he didn’t come across anything that sparked excitement until he encountered the script for his current film. He felt compelled to embark on a new artistic journey, aiming to narrate a love story that breaks away from the conventional. Despite uncertainties about how audiences will receive it, he embraced the challenges and saw it as part of the creative process to present something fresh and unexplored in the realm of love stories.
