Shahid Kapoor on doing TBMAUJ: ‘I was looking forward to something which was a little relaxing’


Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor has built a reputation for tackling varied roles and delivering powerful performances. In a recent pivot from his last intense film, ‘Kabir Singh’, Kapoor has chosen a lighter path with the new love story ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’, rekindling the romantic spark fans associate him with from earlier hits such as ‘Ishq Vishq’, ‘Chup Chup Ke’, and ‘Jab We Met’. The film, which debuted on February 9th, was met with anticipation as audiences were eager to see Kapoor in a genre that has often celebrated his work.

The tale of ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’ revolves around Aryan Agnihotri, a robotics engineer played by Kapoor, who embarks on a love story unlike any other. The object of his affections is SIFRA, a humanoid robot portrayed by Kriti Sanon, who captures Aryan’s heart. The narrative unfolds as Aryan takes the unorthodox step of introducing his robotic love interest to his family as a prospective bride, unleashing a series of comedic and chaotic events. The film boasts the talents of veteran actor Dharmendra playing Kapoor’s grandfather and Dimple Kapadia in the role of his aunt, a leader within the robotics company. A special cameo appearance by Janhvi Kapoor sets the stage for what could potentially grow into a cinematic franchise.

Shahid Kapoor spoke eloquently about his latest project during promotional activities. Highlighting his personal craving for a change of pace in his acting career, Kapoor stated, “I was wondering why I haven’t done a love story for a long time. It often happens that you get back-to-back films from a similar space. But I wanted to do something different.” He expressed that ‘different’ perfectly encapsulates this project, as the concept and subject were unlike anything he had envisioned doing before, providing him with a refreshing and invigorating challenge.

While the film’s premise might seem to promise an effortless and enjoyable role, Kapoor illuminated the complexities in bringing a light-hearted character to life. “It is not always easy to do light roles. When you have a defined character, then you know what you have to do to get the performance right. But with a free-flowing character, there is a possibility you can be right or wrong with it,” he explained.

Despite the potential challenges, Kapoor also recognized the opportunity that ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’ presented for a more spontaneous and relaxed performance. His character’s openness allowed him to explore a more fun and impulsive approach to acting—something he shared he hadn’t experienced in quite some time.

The film not only reunites Kapoor with the love story genre but also brings together a stellar ensemble cast. Dharmendra’s portrayal of the wise and affectionate grandfather and Dimple Kapadia’s role as the enterprising aunt contribute depth and humor to the film’s familial dynamics. The unique premise of a human-robot love story adds a quirky yet heartfelt element to Bollywood’s romantic comedy repertoire.

As ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’ hits cinemas across the globe, Shahid Kapoor’s admirers and critics alike will be watching to see how this off-beat tale resonates with audiences. With this new venture, Kapoor continues to reveal the breadth and versatility of his acting talents, weaving new experiences into the tapestry of his illustrious career. Whether this light-hearted endeavor will capture hearts as his more intense roles have done remains to be seen, but one thing is certain—Kapoor’s portrayal of Aryan is sure to leave an indelible mark on his fans and fuel discussions about the endless possibilities of love.
