In a 2011 episode of Koffee with Karan, Ranveer Singh claimed that he could have done a better job than Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey. But initially, he wondered aloud whether Shahid could be considered a contemporary. In 2014, Shahid Kapoor appeared on the show and responded to Ranveer’s remarks.
“One film of your contemporaries that you think you could have done a better job in,” host Karan Johar asked him.
Ranveer was joined on the show by his Band Baaja Baraat co-star Anushka Sharma. Shahid is five years older than Ranveer and made his acting debut seven years before him. Ranveer asked, “Is Shahid Kapoor counted as a contemporary?” Karan replied, “Yes, of course, all young actors.”
Ranveer claimed that he might have done a better job than Shahid in Kaminey, which is widely recognized as one of Shahid’s best performances. “You thought you’d do better than him?” Karan questioned, surprised. Ranveer smiled and nodded.
Shahid Kapoor disagreed with Ranveer pulling off ‘Kaminey‘
Moreover, when Shahid appeared as a guest on the show alongside Sonakshi Sinha the following season, the presenter couldn’t help but ask him about it.
“In the last season of Koffee, Ranveer said that he could have done Kaminey better than you. Your comment,” he said.
“Ranbir,” Shahid said as if he misheard him. Yes, Ranbir might be able to do it better. It’s conceivable.”
Shahid shook his head as the host corrected him, saying he was talking about Ranveer Singh, not Ranbir Kapoor. “Ranveer?” he inquired. No, I don’t think he’s right.” Sonakshi smirked.
Karan’s rapid-fire questioning is infamous for putting actors and filmmakers against one another, and he frequently asks his guests to rank their contemporaries in order of ‘hotness’ or ‘talent.’ The show is expected to resume in the near future.
Shahid’s most recent film appearance was in the box office flop Jersey, which was released after multiple pandemic-related delays.
Following KGF: Chapter 2’s record-breaking performance, the film was released. Ranveer Singh will next be seen in Jayeshbhai Jordaar, which will be released on May 13th.
