One last story on the Shahid/Bebo break-up and then it will be on to other stories, other loves and other films. Recently Shahid in an interview revealed that it is hard for him to see all the pictures and stories about Saif and former love Kareena.
“It will be dishonest to say that this doesn’t affect me. I am human, it hurts to see and read this all the time. I guess I have no choice but to live and deal with it,” he said.
About his broken relationship he said, “I hold nothing against anybody, if I do, it will pull me down, and I’m not like that. I’ll cherish the good memories of that relationship and move on. That’s what I’m doing — looking at the positive side and trying to be happy.”
Adding, “But it is below Bebo’s dignity and mine to talk about all this now. I wish her all the happiness in the world. I have great respect for her. She’s a wonderful girl.”
Shahid says he is trying to look at the positive side affects: “I am feeling a certain sense of independence all over again. Today, I have time to myself and can do things which maybe I always wanted to do but never could. From where I am at this point in life, things are looking up. The best part is the overwhelming affection, concern and support that people are showing. I feel special.”
And love, does he hope to find love again? Shahid answered smiling, “Oh, I’m very optimistic and still believe in love. You don’t plan to fall in love but, yes, I will fall in love again.”
Finally, he hopes that audiences will forget all the drama and accept Kareena and Shahid as a couple on screen, even if they are no longer a couple off screen, in Jab We Met, which opens next Friday. We certainly are looking forward to seeing the film!
