Actor Shahid Kapoor has had a great 2014, and now is the time to be applauded for all the audience attention he managed to garner last year with his film, Haider. The actor’s stellar act was widely appreciated; no surprise then, that he is being considered a strong contender for most of the best actor awards this year. To make the most of this opportunity, several designers are making a beeline to get Shahid to sport their designs for the awards season.
A source close to the actor reveals, “A lot of designers want to personally design special attires for Shahid for the awards functions. Since he will get clicked at these events, their designs will get prominence. They all think that he would be the right person to sport their designs, which will in turn lead to promotion for them and their work.”
The actor, who usually wears designs by Kunal Rawal and Troy Costa, apart from sporting creations by international brands, has already bagged the best actor awards at one international and two national awards ceremony.
When contacted, Shahid remained unavailable for a comment, but his spokesperson confirmed the news, saying, “His team has received requests from various designers, and they are procuring newer designs, post which, Shahid will be narrowing down the clothes depending on his preferences.”
