Actor Shahid Kapoor reveals he is NERVOUS about his digital debut:

Actor Shahid Kapoor was live on his Instagram handle with his fans on the second anniversary of his blockbuster movie Kabir Singh. The actor revealed that he was nervous about his digital debut with Raj and DK. He told fans, "I’m very nervous about making my digital debut because I really feel that actors who might have been liked and loved on the big screen, might or might not be appreciated on a digital platform. You can’t just be okay if people like you for a couple of hours. They need to be interested in your character, connect with you and you need to hold their attention for 9-10 episodes. I don’t think I’m experienced in that space. So it would be interesting to see how people react to me on that platform."

'These' scenes were edited from The Family Man 2:

But those scenes were not making sense for the creators, or maybe the platform. So, those scenes were edited out. There are so many scenes edited out, so it is not a big deal. That is the process (of content creation)."
