Shahid learns from KareenaThe actor, like his ex-flame, has demanded a share in the profits of his father Pankaj Kapoor’s debut film Mausam ; he has returned the signing amount of Rs 7 crore to producer Sheetal Talwar
Kareena adopted her ex-beau Shahid's lifestyle habit by becoming a vegetarian (Mumbai Mirror, May 14, 2011). And this time around, it seems that Shahid has taken a cue from Bebo.
Recently, Kareena reached an understanding with the producers of Heroine to reduce her signing amount and in exchange share the film's profits. Shahid too has decided to follow suit.
The actor has returned his signing amount of Rs 7 crore to producer Sheetal Talwar in exchange for a share in the profits of director Pankaj Kapoor’s film Mausam.
A source informed Mumbai Mirror that Sheetal was initially taken aback when Shahid returned the cheque and asked to be a shareholder instead. "But then she readily agreed to Shahid's terms.
Also, considering Mausam is Shahid's father Pankaj Kapoor's debut film as a director, Shahid didn't feel like charging for the film," explained the source.
While Kareena is the first actress in Bollywood to share profits of a film, Shahid will be the latest to be added to a list that has names like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
