When Shahid Kapoor was outclassed by his father on Jersey sets 

Shahid Kapoor is super excited for the release of his sports drama 'Jersey' and he believes that his performance in this film is his best one yet. What made the film even more special for Shahid is that he got to share screen with his father Pankaj Kapur, who is an immensely talented and seasoned theatre and film actor. During the trailer launch event for the film, Shahid shared that working alongside his father made him give his best as he had to match upto the skills of a trained thespian.

Recalling an incident when director asked Shahid to up his game to match his father's level, Shahid said, "When we were doing this scene where we are having tea, Goutam took his (Pankaj Kapur) shot and after that his expression changed and he told him he is outstanding. I walked to him and asked, ‘what happened?’. Goutam asked me whether I will be able to match his performance because he is outstanding and that people will not look at me and I better be very good in the shot."

Shahid further added, "I am not intimidated by him, intimidation is the wrong word. When you have so much respect and regard for somebody you want to be able to be the best. As an actor it is amazing to be standing in the same frame with a great actor, regardless of whether he is my father or not. It is about two people standing in the frame as actors and seeing him what he is doing with his craft. Honestly, it was a great learning for me.”
