Shahid Kapoor shared how he feared spoiling the shoot
Talking about it, Shahid told Radio Nasha, “Dil To Pagal Hai was really nervousal… I have no favourite memories. My hair was bouncing around too much and I was spoiling the shot so I was really nervous. I had just joined Shiamak’s troupe, so I was probably one of the rookies there. I was just nervous all the time. I was a nervous wreck, just hoping I don’t mess things up.”

After Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Shahid appeared in the Taal song, Kahin Aag Lage Lag Jaaye. He played a significant part alongside Aishwarya. He added, “No one knows this, but that day I met with an accident. I used to ride my motorcycle and I fell off it. So, I remember I reached the set very flustered because I had fallen off and I was like, what just happened with me? And that was the day this happened with me. I’ll always remember it as the worst and the best day of my life at that time.”
