Priyadarshan's Chup Chup Ke banks heavily on the screen chemistry between Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor, but Shahid refuses to consider that the sole criterion for the film's success.

"Kareena and I are only part of a film. The script, the characters and the music also contribute to a film's success," said Shahid, talking candidly about girlfriend Kareena.

"We are both young and single. We are lucky to be doing films together... that way we get to spend a lot of time with each other. But our careers are still priority, as both of us want to excel in our work."

When asked what he loves most about Kareena, Shahid said: "The way she wears her stardom and success... very casually!"


Once again you are paired with your girlfriend, Kareena Kapoor in Chup Chup Ke. Aren't you apprehensive about it ending up as Fida?

Remember Kareena and I are only part of a film. The script, the characters and the music also contribute to a film's success. In that way, I am very confident about Chup Chup Ke. It has shaped up really well.

For the first time you have worked with Priyadarshan in the film. What was the experience like?

Priyadarshan's forte is comedy, which is not loud or slapstick, but situational. Since it was something I had never attempted before, I was so nervous on the first day that I actually sweated.

It's my first film with him. It took me a few days to adjust to his style, but after that I was fine and started enjoying working with him.

How different is it from Priyadarshan's other films?

You have seen Priyan's successful comedies - Hulchul, Hungama, Malamaal Weekly, etc. But this one is a romantic comedy. It's a love story with loads of comedy.
