New Delhi: Shoe bites kept Shahid Kapoor on his toes literally. The actor suffered shoe bites while wearing a traditional juti for “Teri Meri Kahaani”, but he not only continued shooting, but danced too.
Shahid was asked to wear the juti or the Indian Mojri for his character of Javed in the Kunal Kohli-directorial.
“I had a lot of shoe bites when I wore them for the first time. It takes a long time for your feet to get used to them. I used to stuff cotton on my ankles and bandage my feet before I could wear them. I had cuts all over my feet within the first few days. It was one painful experience,” said Shahid.
He remained undeterred, and even shot a song wearing them. However, he says the memories of the juti will stay with him for a long time.
“More so because I had to dance with them on for a song. It used to come off my feet and fly. Kunal would often say — ‘It’s a nice shot but let’s go for one more take as the juti has flown away.’
“I don’t think I will wear them for a long time to come,” quipped the 31-year-old.
“Teri Meri Kahaani”, releasing June 22, also features Shahid’s “Kaminey” co-star Priyanka Chopra.
Their chemistry worked very well for the Vishal Bharadwaj movie, and fans are hoping to see them revive it yet again for “Teri Meri Kahaani”, a love story set in three different eras.
The music of the film is already being appreciated.
