Shahid Kapoor has been a winner so far at awards ceremonies for his performance in Vishal Bhardwaj۪s Haider۪ (2014). Interestingly, he has also received a lot of support from his contemporaries and this includes none other than Deepika Padukone. The two are thought to have exchanged some kind words at a recent award function.
It is thought that Kapoor and Padukone were sitting next to each other. The latter took a moment to compliment Kapoor on his shining performance in Haider۪. A source spoke to Deccan Chronicle, Being cordial and greeting each other is common courtesy, but Shahid was very genuine in expressing just how much he wanted to act with Deepika.
A source close to Kapoor also commented, Shahid admires Deepika as an actor. He is hopeful that some intelligent writer will come up with a script that gives them the chance to work together.
Although there are no current plans to cast the two together in a film, this mutual admiration is definitely good to hear about.
