Shahid Kapoor’s next film ‘Haider’s’ promo is going to be launched next week and buzz is that the actor is taking a keen interest in the film’s communication strategy! Yep, you read right communication strategy! Pretty deep stuff, Shahid!  What’s more, the actor is said to be making himself available to the team of the film and is working closely with the marketing team. According to sources, Shahid is also always present whenever they require him.

Talking about it, Shahid’s spokesperson said in a statement,

“Shahid has become part of the team and has been actively attending meetings to understand and give suggestions on the plan.”

Meanwhile, an insider revealed that Shahid is taking it easy on the films that he’s doing these days especially after he shaved his head for his role in ‘Haider’! A source close to Shahid disclosed,

“Being emphatic about his role, Shahid happily shaved his head off for just one scene in ‘Haider’. He went ahead with the decision despite knowing that he won’t be able to work on his next project till the hair grows back… The scene was canned by Bhardwaj in Srinagar in March.”

Apparently with the bald head, the actor couldn’t go on his next project – SHAANDAR. Hence, he decided to take a break and now, after three months’ halt, Shahid is finally ready to shoot for his next with director Vikas Behl along with Alia Bhatt.
