Mumbai: Shahid Kapoor was at MAMI film festival on Sunday when he got vocal about a lot of things, including his upcoming films, his lovely wife Mira, his little bundle of joy Misha and fatherhood.

While addressing the media at a press conference, the actor opened up about his biggest fear. “It takes a year or two to finish a film, so sometimes you feel what is relevant to you today, might just turn out to be an old concept by the time it releases, and I guess that’s my biggest fear; to be working on a story which is old or the fear that similar films might just release till the time I finish shooting for my film and the audience will get bored of my film. And this has happened with every actor at some point in their careers. Every actor feels that ‘This is working at the time, so let’s do this’ but till the time it comes out, it has lost its relevance.”

When asked which of his films would he like to see in the festival, Shahid instantly replied, "'Haider' or 'Udta Punjab' because I think they are more relevant and they are trying to break through in terms of cinema that works.”

Shahid, who teamed up with filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj for the third time with 'Rangoon', informed the media that he hasn't yet seen the final product and is extremely nervous about the film. “I am very curious as I haven't seen the film yet. I just met Vishal sir and requested him to show me the film as I am extremely nervous because this is my third film with Vishal sir. People appreciated our previous collaborations so you know, you don’t want to fall short of everyone’s expectations."

The film, which is all set to release on February 24, 2016, also stars Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut.
