Shahid Kapoor: Nawab is the most heroic character I have ever played

Shahid Kapoor is one actor who has proved his impeccable acting prowess in movies like ‘Jab We Met,’ ‘Kaminey’, ‘Haider’ and many more. And the actor is all set to go a step ahead by playing an army man in ‘Rangoon.’

Shahid however reveals that his character in the film is nothing close to him in real life. Speaking about this being the most heroic role of his life, he shares, “Rangoon was a film that was far away from my reality. I am playing a man in uniform, I am playing a jawan, a patriot, I am playing a man who fights for his country and I have seen people in uniform. That’s constant for those people so I could hold onto that. Also Nawab is the most heroic character I have ever played. What he is ready to do for his duty is something that is really large than life.”

He further adds how he always wanted to play such a character on screen, “I always wanted to play something like that. Getting an opportunity to finally represent the man in uniform like I wanted.”

The film directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, also stars Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut in the lead roles. It is all set to hit the screens on the February 24.
