Shahid Kapoor, who has been lying low after the debacle of his father Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut Mausam last year, has been fairly active on the micro-blogging website Twitter.
Late last year, a tabloid had written a graphic report about his Badmaash Company (2010) co-star Anushka Sharma and him getting cozy at a private party. The actor refused to speak to the press after the incident, but reacted angrily on the website.
"I discussed the incident and the way it had been reported with Anushka. It’s so annoying to read a piece of trash in a supposed newspaper that runs information without crediting anyone for it," says the actor, who recently announced his collaboration with Pioneer’s products in the city.
"There’s a limit to everything. I felt disgusted to read reports written in such bad taste about a lady who comes from a respected family."
When asked why he had reacted only on Twitter, Shahid reasons that he felt it was an apt platform to vent his anger. "We have many fans out there. And what I said came straight from my heart and was meant for fans to read and know how much truth there is to certain pieces of information," he retorts.
Over the last one year, there have been ample occasions when the 30-year-old was linked to his Kaminey (2009) co-star Priyanka Chopra.
Various stories about them spending quality time together were written. But Shahid didn’t react to any of them on his web page.
"Priyanka and I have just completed work on Kunal Kohli’s film. She’s a fantastic co-star and a great buddy," he says, adding, "We just choose to let these concocted stories be because the minute we react, they gain undue importance."
