Shahid opens up about his digital debut

Ahead of his digital debut, actor Shahid Kapoor says he is "nervous" about venturing into a new medium.

Shahid, the star of movies such as ‘Jab We Met’, ‘Kaminey’, ‘Haider’ and ‘Kabir Singh’, is headlining an untitled series, created and written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK of ‘The Family Man’ fame for streamer Amazon Prime Video.

During an Instagram Live session on Monday evening, Shahid Kapoor said his success in the movies doesn't guarantee acceptance on OTT platforms. 

"I'm very nervous about making my digital debut because I really feel that actors who might have been liked and loved on the big screen, might or might not be appreciated on a digital platform," Shahid said.

The 40-year-old actor was interacting with his fans to celebrate two years of his 2019 blockbuster Kabir Singh.

The long form formats are more difficult to pull off because actors have to ensure that the audiences continue to remain interested in their characters, Shahid said.    —Hindustan Times
