Shahid Kapur may be the most non-controversial around, but his name has been dragged in several controversies of late.

Firstly, Rajkumar Santoshi, an acclaimed director approached Shahid for his new film. However, Shahid refused his offer and did not answer any of the director's calls, which frustrated the director. Despite these claims, Shahid stated that he has great regard for the director and would never ignore his calls.

Another incident occurred with Priyadarshan on the sets of Chup Chup Ke (2006), when Shahid suggested that one of the scenes should be shot in a different way. According to sources, the director told him to mind his own business.


Shabina Khan has designed Shahid Kapoor's clothes in his many films. H had a heated argument while deciding his costumes in Jab We Met. For the song "Mauja Hi Mauja", Shabina wanted to give Shahid a short jacket but the actor wanted a long one. After a lengthy argument the two made a compromise and settled for a thigh-length jacket.
