Shahid Kapoor

It may take some getting used to, but actor Shahid Kapoor thinks his new bearded look “suits” him. Shahid, who was in Delhi to promote his upcoming film,


, visited his alma mater, Gyan Bharti School, in Saket, on Wednesday.

Asked why he sported a jacket on a hot summer day, Shahid said, “I’m comfortable.” As for his bearded look, he explained, “It’s the look for my dad’s upcoming film and yes, I am trying to look different. I wanted to try something new. I think it suits me.” On why his


co-star, Ayesha Takia, was not part of the promotional activities, Shahid said, “We did not want to promote the film as a love story, but as an educational film, perhaps that’s why.”

The school children could be seen screaming in excitement and lining up for autographs from their ‘senior’. The visit to the school was followed by a visit to his grandmother’s home in Press Enclave.
