While his last film Haider (2014) was a hit with the critics as well as the masses, actor Shahid Kapoor recently spoke about the time when his films did not garner success at the box office, and how he was scared of facing the camera after that. The 34-year-old, who is currently judging an ongoing dance reality show, was seen encouraging a contestant, who was upset after his performance did not go off well.
“The contestant was very disappointed with his performance as he blanked out and missed out many steps. Shahid consoled him, and said that failure is a part of life and he would come back even stronger,” says a source, from the sets of the show.

Talking about a tough time in his career, Shahid said that it made him learn that only failure makes you stronger. “There was a time when I gave two flop films in just one month and I was scared to come back in front of the camera while they were starting the shoot for (my next film) Vivah (2006). That time my director (Sooraj Barjatya) told me to never give up and I came out stronger. Failure is a part of life,” said Shahid
