According to the reports, Shahid Kapoor was down with high fever and therefore he had returned to Mumbai from Dehradun where he was shooting for his next venture, “Batti Gul Meter Chalu”. It further revealed that Shahid has been spitting blood as his throat was infected.
A source told DNA, “Shahid started spitting blood. Though many thought it was just a viral infection, doctors, who checked on him said that because of the intensity of the scream, some blood vessel was affected. Shahid plans to be back to the set in a day or two. He will finish his schedule and then return home towards the month-end.”
The shoot was cancelled due to illness and the producer od the film, Prerna Arora said: “There will be illnesses, and sometimes schedules will get postponed, delayed and cancelled. It’s no big deal. Shahid is a dream actor to work with.”
“The way he has transitioned smoothly from his royal role in Padmaavat to the working class everyman in Batti Gul is a measure of his versatility. The audiences won’t believe it’s the same actor.”
