Kabir Singh was one of the most successful movies of 2019 and Shahid received a lot of appreciation and praise for his role. The movie collected around 280 crores at the box office.
It is being said that Shahid was promised the award for the Best Actor (Popular) at an award function recently. He was also supposed to perform at the event. Unfortunately, a change made at the last moment did not go down well with Shahid.
The award, which was promised to him, was given to Ranveer Singh instead. An angry Shahid Kapoor walked out and refused to perform.
According to Pinkvilla, a source close to Shahid said, “It was an understanding that Shahid will perform because he was bagging the award. He had rehearsed for the performance too. Shahid apparently lost his cool on the organisers because it was an unprofessional move on their part to sneakily change the whole scenario. He was reportedly very upset with how the whole thing was addressed. The award was then presented to Ranveer Singh and Shahid then supposedly walked out of the show. He was to perform but he decided not to record his performance as well.”
However, the rumor has been denied by Shahid’s spokesperson. “Shahid is a thorough professional and a man of his words. Therefore, even though the doctor had advised him bed rest, he tried to fulfill his commitments for a recent award ceremony to the best ability,” the spokesperson said.
On the work front, Shahid will next be seen in the film Jersey in which he is playing the role of a cricketer. The movie is a remake of Telugu blockbuster of the same name.
