Recently while talking to GQ magazine Shahid said, "I kind of feel like I don’t belong here, I feel like a newcomer. I need to figure out this new room, and this new club that I’ve entered. Even though I’ve been here for 15-16 years, it’s not my comfort zone, I need to get my head around it. I can't (afford to) feel like I know exactly what's going on, and exactly what I need to do next. So, I'm trying to keep it simple, and eventually, I'll go with my instinct and my gut."

Shahid has played some critically acclaimed roles in movies like Haider, Udta Punjab and Padmaavat. However, the success that Kabir Singh got was huge. The film which also stars Kiara Advani has become 2019's top-earning Bollywood film till now and has minted over Rs. 270 crores in India alone.
