PotpourriShahid Kapoor To Grow Old...Again

Priyanka Chopra aged in Saat Khoon Maaf and now her ex, Shahid Kapoor will grow old in Kunal Kohli's film. Determined to shed his boyish image Shahid wants to do roles that take him away from the dancing-dude campus-caper image. He is already playing an older guy in his dad Pankaj Kapur's directorial debut Mausam. Kohli's film requires him to go through several phases of life until the character reaches old age. Shahid has done a series of disguises in Badmaash Company, but to show a man aging in front of the audiences' eyes is not going to be easy. In Kunal's film, the age-span of his character is far wider than in Mausam and prosthetics will be needed. The director admits, "I did spend a lot of time with Shahid in Goa discussing his look. I can't reveal what is required of him. But for Shahid who's a brilliant actor, it is important to constantly push the envelope. He can't repeat himself. The roles in both the films are very different."
