  • Shahid Kapoor's film 'Kabir Singh' released on Friday
  • The film also features Kiara Advani in lead role
  • Shahid opened up about the failure of 'Shaandaar'

Actor Shahid Kapoor says he has done "some really crappy films," and he would erase Shaandaar from his career trajectory if he could. Shahid expressed his opinion when he appeared on an episode of zoOm's show By Invite Only, read a statement, reported news agency IANS. He featured on the show with his Kabir Singh co-star Kiara Advani. Talking about Shahid's career trajectory, Kiara said: "I was not a fan of Shaandaar." Shahid agreed, and said: "I would erase Shaandaar from my career trajectory if I could. No one from this generation of actors can claim that a bad film did well just because they were in it. I think I have a very loyal fan following. And I thank them every day of my life. I have done some really crappy films."

Shaandaar, which was touted as the biggest, craziest and zaniest wedding celebration on the silver screen, turned out to be a damp squib at the box office in 2015 despite the presence of actors like Pankaj Kapur and Alia Bhatt, apart from Shahid.

On maintaining his work and life balance, Shahid, a father of two, said: "I have to spend some time with my children every day. It sometimes means I am not going to shoot beyond this point of time. That's not something negotiable for me, it's priority."
