Even in an episode on Koffee With Karam, when Karan asked Shahid about not bonding with Deepika and Ranveer during the shoot, he said, "It's a huge film, and the stakes were very high for everybody. So everybody wanted to have their A-game on."
He further added, "I am sure everybody felt a bit threatened by each other at some level. It's natural."
He even went on to say that although he had a great time on the sets, many small things happened since it was a multi-starrer film.
"I won't say it was a smooth ride, and we were all throwing love at each other. But looking back, I feel it's an amazing film in my filmography, and I feel like it's great that I did it. It's all good."
Talking about his equation with Deepika and Ranveer, he said, "My relationship status with most people in the industry is zilch. Deepika, Ranveer and Sanjay Sir never became a part of my friend circle as such."
