Romantic hero tag made Shahid Kapoor feel “claustrophobic”

Shahid Kapoor said tag of a romantic hero bothered him initially but now he is fine with returning to the space. The 36-year-old actor said in the beginning of his career he wanted to prove that he has a lot more to him than a lover boy.

“In the beginning, I used to feel claustrophobic about being called a ‘romantic hero’ and the actor in me would retaliate violently saying, ‘there’s more to me than just being a cute boy’.”

“Now that it’s been 14 years and I have done all kinds of films, I enjoy getting back into a mould that people have liked me in. I think ‘Padmavati’ provides an amazing platform to play a romantic character and a lover again,” Shahid said.
In the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed movie, the actor essays the role of Raja Ratan Singh. He is paired opposite Deepika Padukone in the romantic period drama film, which also stars Ranveer Singh.
