Oct 10, 2014 NR

Shahid Kapoor-starrer Kashmir-based drama "Haider" is a hit with both critics and general viewers, and the actor considers his dad's praise as the biggest compliment.

"Haider", which marked director Vishal Bhardwaj and Shahid's second successful collaboration after "Kaminey", collected over Rs. 50 core in the first week.

The critics have raved about Shahid's performance in the film and said that he was the show-stealer in the film.

When asked which was the best compliment he got for his performance, he said, "A lot of compliments.... Irrfan saw the film and he tweeted about it. Kay Kay called me and said I didn't know you would do so well. My father said you have done a good job and that's the biggest compliment."

"Vishal said he would not have made the film without me. All these things make you feel special," said Shahid who has tasted success after a long time.

"I have always believed that good content will always find an audience. As an actor you have to take risks and do a film like 'Haider' and when it works, you feel cool about it", he added. Click the Movie button below for more info:
