[Watch] ‘No One Can Do Justice To Kareena’s Role In Jab We Met’, Says Shahid Kapoor
New Delhi: Shahid Kapoor, who recently made a successful OTT debut with ‘Farzi’ discussed his 2007 film ‘Jab We Met’ in which he played the lead role alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan.
In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Shahid talked about the hype and adulation the film garnered when it was re-released in theatres after 16 years and the possibility of a sequel.
Talking about a ‘Jab We Met’ sequel, Shahid said, “It really depends on the quality of that script. So if there is a script that demands a sequel and I feel it is the kind of script that you read and say ‘man this will be better than the original this can match up to the original’ I would do it but if I feel it’s not and I’m just trying to use the brand value of the original thing to do then I feel that that ‘why are you doing it, don’t do it’.”
On who from the current generation of actors would pull off Geet and Aditya from the film, Shahid said, “I cannot comment on my role, but for Geet (Kareena Kapoor’s character), I really doubt anybody else will be able to do that kind of justice.”
Shahid also praised the director and said, “That is the magic of Imtiaz Ali, he made a film so relevant and I don’t think a love story like that has come out after that. It is his vision that is giving us love and we should thank him for that. The film is my DDLJ, it is iconic.”
