Off late, a lot has been said about Shahid Kapoor’s equation with his Rangoon co-star Kangana Ranaut. There have been a number of speculative stories about Shahid and Kangana not being on good terms. But the Udta Punjab actor finally chose to clear the air around the whole story by saying that there is not problem between him and Kangana. The media caught up with questions on Shahid when he came for the premiere of Deepika Padukone & Vin Diesel’s xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage. While talking about his equation with Kangana Ranaut, Shahid said, “There are no issues between me and Kangana. I read an article somewhere that we might not promote the film together. I will be happy to promote the film whenever wherever with Kangana and Saif Ali Khan who is also a very big part of the film. There are no issues.”
Later, the actor was quipped with questions on his upcoming romantic drama. He said, “Rangoon is my third film with Vishal Bhardwaj. A large part of who I am as an actor is defined because of him. All films with him are special. Rangoon is very different from Haider and Kaminey. It’s a different and original film. So I am excited and looking forward.” The film’s trailer was out recently and got good response from the viewers. Fans are excited to see Shahid’s chemistry with Kangana Ranaut.
Shahid is currently working with Deepika Padukone in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. He plays Deepika’s onscreen husband in the magnum opus. Hence, Shahid also wished good luck to Deepika for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. “It’s a huge opportunity for her and I am excited to be here,” said Shahid. Further talking about Padmavati, he added, “The first schedule got over last month. I am very happy. We shot for 25 days,. It’s a privilege to be working with Bhansali. The way he puts things together, makes his sets and the passion with which he makes his movies, it’s a privilege as an artist when you get directed by him. You understand why some of the best performances by our leading artistes are in his films. He provides you with that opportunity. He pushes you in that direction to give your best.” (ALSO READ: Padmavati Deepika Padukone and Raees star Shah Rukh Khan share this strange yet sweet habit! Read EXCLUSIVE details)

Shahid fans will be disheartened as they won’t be getting to see their favourite star shaking his leg in his upcoming films. “Both in Rangoon and Padmavati, I will not be dancing because in one I will be playing a jawan and in the other one I play a king. There are two or three songs which me and Deepika have together but I will not be dancing in those songs,” exults Shahid.
