Shahid Kapoor is currently wrapping up the shoot of Batti Gul Meter Chalu. The team is filming the climax in Mumbai. The Gen-Y hero plays a lawyer in the film, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam.

Recently, while shooting for a courtroom scene, the award-winning actor left the entire team amazed. Says a source from the sets, “Shahid had to deliver a three-and-a-half-minute monologue and the crew had dedicated an entire day for it. Everyone was shocked when he finished the scene in just one take.”

The source adds, “The monologue in Batti is even longer than the one that Shahid had performed for Haider. He rehearsed his dialogues during his break. When he came on the sets, he discussed the shot with director Shree Narayan Singh and delivered a cracker of a scene.”

Everyone including the filmmaker and his co-stars were stunned. “Shree, Shraddha, Yami and the entire crew present on the sets started clapping for him,” recalls the source.

Shree is all praises for the Padmaavat actor. He says, “Even if I don’t put any background music in the scene, audiences will still cry watching it. Everybody on the set had become emotional while seeing him perform. I haven’t worked with many actors, but Shahid is brilliant. We have become good friends. We are teaming up again for a thriller set in UP.”
