And that is a la Leonardo DiCaprio from the Hollywood hit ‘Catch Me If You Can’. Though producer Yashraj Films successfully guarded this secret about the film that also has Anushka Sharma in lead, it’s out from the closet now.
As a tabloid reports, the role is inspired by Leonardo’s character in Steven Spielberg’s ‘Catch Me If You Can’. Like Leo, Shahid too plays a con artist and has different looks - “a South Indian patriarch, a Bihari babu, a baldie with a hair-loss complex, an African with an Afro-curly hairdo, a Sikh, a sweet innocent college kid with oil-sickened hair, and most interestingly a Hyderabadi mawaali inspired by Mehmood’s look in several films,” claims the tabloid.
Shahid admits having different looks but he’s not ready to divulge anything more.
The movie which would be Yashraj’s first release this year will hit the theatres on May 7.
