Shahid said in an interview yesterday, “Honestly, it’s not the most author-backed role in the film. So taking up such a role and getting appreciations for that, is an amazing moment.”
Shahid also said in the same interview that he ‘felt like an underdog’ as he was new to the team and his ‘role was not as author-backed’ as others’ in the film. However, he said that he was extremely happy with the response to the film.
