Are you trying to change yourself?I realise that it’s important to open up with the people from the industry and I have often tried to do that. However, my relationship with my audience has been a little easier to understand.
Have you started attending more parties?Yes, I have started going to parties (smiles). But I am not someone who likes partying six times a week. I like to hang out with my friends. I like to party when I am out of the country or at a friend’s place, where I have only familiar faces around.
Will we now see a different Shahid? I have made an effort to connect with people. But if I try beyond a point, it might look forced. I feel that you can’t lose the essence of who you are. For 10 years, people have seen me in a certain way. Now I can’t suddenly become another person.
