A few days back, Shahid Kapoor wrapped up a shooting schedule of his next film, which is being directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, in Arunachal Pradesh. Work-wise, everything went well.
However, during his stay there, the actor couldn’t visit the state’s famous Tawang Monastery -- the largest monastery in India, and the second largest in the world -- due to his busy filming schedule.
“Shahid has completely fallen in love with the state. When he first visited Arunachal Pradesh a few weeks back, he was awestruck by its beauty. He really wanted to visit the monastery while he was there,” says an insider.
Now, the Bollywood actor plans to return to the state to visit the magnificent monastery, once the film’s shoot is over and once he has some time. “He is yet to make any specific plans, but he will visit the monastery for sure,” adds the insider.
While Shahid couldn’t be reached for a comment, his spokesperson said, “Shahid is mesmerised with the beauty of the state. He loved every bit of it. The schedule was tight. So, he didn’t get a chance to explore the state too well.” Shahid has already kick-started the next shooting schedule of the same movie in Mumbai itself.
