“The most difficult phase was after ‘Vivaah’ was a super hit. I was at home for six months without work. I got some 60 film offers but none inspired me,” Shahid told choreographer-director Farah Khan on STAR Plus’ chat show “Tere Mere Beach Mein”.
On the show, the actor spoke of losing his confidence after a spate of failures following his debut “Ishq Vishk”.
He even shared how apprehensive and nervous he was when he had begun shooting for “Vivaah”, but gained a little confidence after director Sooraj Barjatya gave him a pep talk saying: “There’s only one thing that can take you ahead and that’s talent and you have that in you!”
“I was unconvinced and gave one shot, then I saw it on the monitor and I said, ‘I’ve given a perfect shot…I know my work.’ After that I used to just focus on my work.”
The episode featuring Shahid will be aired Saturday at 9 p.m.
