Shahid Kapoor plays the role of a cocky and brazen boy named Javed in the 1910 segment of his forthcoming film Teri Meri Kahaani. For the first time in his career, Shahid will be seen playing the role of a Muslim boy.
Shahid says it is the character of Javed in Kunal Kohli's Teri Meri Kahaani which he found the most interesting to portray. "I have never played a character like Javed earlier. He is a little bit of Casanova. Whenever he sees a girl he starts flirting with her. It's inherent in his nature. He is very scruffy and has an uncombed look. He keeps on reciting shayari the whole day to impress girls. Shayaris are his pick up lines and very often he does succeed in getting girls with his shayari. He is not a sophisticated shayar and that is part of his charm. "
He further adds "Javed is a good for nothing guy. He roams around with his friends and flirts with every girl he meets. He later meets Aradhna, the character Priyanka Chopra is playing, and discovers love for the first time. It's a different and a new feeling for him and he doesn't know what to do. He is confused. That is Javed in 1910. It was probably the funniest and naughtiest character of 1910 I have ever seen. I am very excited about this character and have received a lot of feedback over it too. I had to memorise the shayaris also."
The most difficult part for Shahid was wearing the stud in his ear. "I didn't have my ears pierced in real life so I wore a stud which has a clip on and it was so painful. I have started respecting women for that. I thought it would be easy but after the shoot every evening I would die to take it off as I used to have red ears," he laughs.
