"I was very nervous to work with him but my dad is very kind. So he helped me feel more comfortable and after a couple of days we both had fun," Shahid said.

"He doesn't have any expectations. I hope I've lived up to Vikas' expectations because he is the person whom I'm trying to live up to in any way. With dad it was an honour to share screen space with him," the 34-year-old added.

'Shaandaar' is a kind of 'family film' for Shahid as it also marks the debut of his half-sister Sanah Kapoor.

Asked whether he saw any hidden talent in her while working in 'Shaandaar', Shahid said, "Her talent is not hidden, it's there for the world to see. She's so talented and so good. She good this role by auditioning for it on her own merit. So, I'm very proud of her."

'Shaandaar' also stars actress Alia Bhatt. The romantic comedy is Shahid's first film after his marriage to city-based girl Mira Rajput in July.

When asked about showing 'Shaandaar' to his wife Mira, "I shot 'Shaandaar' before I got married. This is the first film of mine that Mira would be seeing. So I hope that she really likes it and hope that it comes out as a good one," Shahid said.
