    In a recent statement, the actor told, 

    “The choice to go on to the OTT platform was to break the trend, was to do something different and challenge myself. I have been doing this for almost 20 years, I need to feel challenged and excited.” 

    Shahid Kapoor further added, that if he’s not doing anything new not only he but the audience will get bored too. He loves the idea of bringing out some change so that it’s fresh. Hence, this show was a big opportunity to do that. The actor believes that as artists one must look forward to delivering a refreshing story on OTT as the audience is already acquainted with varied contents. 

    “Whenever you are trying something different, you are always nervous. People might like you in that space or might not like you in another. So, you should always be humble and grounded.” 

    Shahid Kapoor added that people have many choices today and they watch various types of content. Hence, striving to give something refreshing is what one should look for. 

    Utterly noted for his works in Jab We Met, Haider, Udta Punjab, Kaminey and Padmavaat, the 41-year-old actor said he had a great experience working on the web show. 

    The actor revealed that working in a long format is exciting to see the character development over the course of eight to nine episodes. The Kabir Singh star revealed about his character that it will be someone from the streets of Mumbai with lots of dreams and ambition and that there is a crime angel that takes place.
