Shahid in praise of Nani and Mrunal Thakur
Shahid was also seen praising the Telugu star. In reaction to a Nani fan, Shahid stated the actor inspired him to take up the role.
“I think Nani did an amazing job in jersey. He made me cry. So I would say he inspired me to do this film,” Shahid wrote.
While the Telugu movie starred Shraddha Srinath, the Hindi remake will see Mrunal Thakur sharing the display screen area with Shahid. During his AMA, Shahid additionally stated Mrunal.She is lovely. We had a great time. “She is extremely talented and loads of fun,” Shahid said about his co-star.
As he was speaking about Nani, a Samantha Akkineni fan had a query for Shahid.“How did you like performance of Samantha in ‘The Family Man 2’?” asked a fan. In response to the question, the actor replied, “Totally loved her on the show. Would love to work with her some time.”
Shahid’s response to fan’s with weird yet fun question
As the AMA came to an end, Shahid bid good-bye to his fan on an absurd question. The fan asked “Baccho ko sambhalna jyada mushkil hai ya biwi ko (Who is tougher to handle – kids or wife)?,” Shahid replied, “Lagta hai aapki shaadi nahi hue ab tak (I think you have not gotten married yet),” implying that the question is wrong. The couple have two kids – Misha and Zain.
