Shahid Kapoor recently completed 20 years in Bollywood.

Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor, who was last seen in Bloody Daddy, has spilled the beans on why he doesn’t do too many projects in a year.

Shahid Kapoor has had a phenomenal year as the actor made his OTT debut with Raj and DK’s Farzi, which received immensely positive response from the audience. Shahid’s digital film Bloody Daddy also opened to decent reviews and went on to become one of the most-watched Hindi movies of the year on any OTT platform.

During a recent interaction, the actor, who has completed 20 years in Bollywood, was asked about not doing multiple projects in a year. Shahid said that he believes in working on one project at a time because he doesn’t like putting up a fake moustache or beard for acting.

“I am trying to do as many films as I can, but mera kya hai na ki main moonch chipka ke acting nahin kar paata. Yahaan pe moonch chipka li, wahaan pe shave kar liya, do din ki daadhi uga ke teesri picture kar li. Mere ko waisi waali acting samajh hi nahin aati. (But the thing with me is that I can’t act with a fake moustache. In one film I have a fake moustache, in another, I am clean shaven and at the same time on the third one I have a stubble. I don’t understand that kind of acting performance). I like to do one film at a time,” Shahid told Pinkvilla.

Shahid’s response has sparked a debate on social media, with netizens wondering if it was a dig at Akshay Kumar, who allegedly used “a fake moustache” for his movie Samrat Prithviraj.

One Reddit user wrote, “Akshay Kumar used fake moustache and beard in Prithviraj and Kesari and does like 3 films at a time. Shahid is clearly talking about him.” Another one wrote, “He does have a point though! Why shy away from taking a dig at someone who is abusing the very same craft that feeds you. At least he respects what he does and does it with some dignity, good on him.”

A third user in a rather detailed comment said, “It could be seen as an unnecessary dig but considering Shahid’s career as well as his off screen personality, him making these points seems like a good fit to me. For Shahid, his Haider performance lives rent free in my mind. I can name five more where he is so dedicated, it’s hard to imagine somebody else playing that character. Hardly has he been disappointing. But exceeded my expectations? Most of the time. Now, Akshay has done so many roles that it’s hard to see him as ‘Not Akshay’. He was already established when I started making judgments of actors. Even if he becomes the bearer of lazy performances, let it be for now. I mean his legacy speaks for itself and his comedy performances will never be forgotten, and he just needs a good comeback, probably an year later (at least) lots of it will be forgiven. Also someone that takes defeat and turns it around. Both of them are hard working and dedicated so that’s why I made an half a** comparison. I’m glad Shahid spoke about it though because he is a respected and famous actor. Also, lazy acting and finishing movies in ’45 days’ is an abyssal standard.”
