Actor Shahid Kapoor says he seeks inspiration from his father Pankaj Kapur, and thinks he can never match up to the veteran actor’s level.

“My father inspires me a lot. When I was working with him for ‘Mausam’, I got one of the most important lessons of my life and that was to follow the director’s point of view,” Shahid Kapoor said in a statement.


“Dad is a man of few words and when he appreciates me for anything, I feel he has to step a level down as he is extremely brilliant and a great human being. I can never match up to his level,” he added.

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, “Batti Gul Meter Chalu” tells the story of how people are suffering from corruption in the electricity system. It also stars Shraddha Kapoor.
