Shahid Kapoor’s impressive filmography comprises cinematic gems like Haider, Udta Punjab, Jab We Met and “Padmaavat” among others but now he wishes to play a “typecast hero.” We don’t know what Shahid Kapoor’s definition of a “typecast hero” is but we do know what prompted him to work towards that. The answer is his wife Mira Rajput, who would love to see Shahid Kapoor in a film where he will get to dance. Shahid Kapoor, on his Instagram story wrote: “My wife has fired me about how I am not doing a film which is fun and where I dance. Open invitation, please give me something that allows me to please her… #Typecast hero in need! Mira Rajput, I am committed to the cause.”
Responding to Shahid Kapoor’s Instagram story, Mira Rajput shared a GIF from Schitt’s Creek and she wrote: “Unbelievable”. Check out Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput’s Instagram exchange here:
