Mumbai: One of the major reasons why Kartik Aaryan shot to more fame than the other two heroes in ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ was his lengthy monologue against girls.

His rant in the second installment of the franchise was apparently even lengthier, but he has another actor, Shahid Kapoor, giving him competition this time.

No, the happily married actor didn’t rant against women, but delivered a three-and-a-half minute monologue for his upcoming film ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ also starring Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam.

The actor, who plays a lawyer in the film, delivered it during the climax shoot in Mumbai, that too without any cuts, for a courtroom scene and naturally the team was left stunned.

According to a source, “The monologue in 'Batti...' is even longer than the one that Shahid had performed for ‘Haider.’ He rehearsed his dialogues during his break. When he came on the sets, he discussed the shot with director Shree Narayan Singh and delivered a cracker of a scene. Shree, Shraddha, Yami and the entire crew present on the sets started clapping for him."

The director Shree Narayan Singh was awestruck too and said, "Even if I don’t put any background music in the scene, audiences will still cry watching it. Everybody on the set had become emotional while seeing him perform. I haven’t worked with many actors, but Shahid is brilliant. We have become good friends. We are teaming up again for a thriller set in UP.”
