Discussing his action film Shamshera, he said it was "by far the hardest film I've worked on. It was a big box office disaster, but the biggest mistake I made on Shamshera was that I stuck on a beard." Kapoor continued to discuss his family drama Jagga Jasoos, which he described as another disaster, he said, “It's a film that I produced. It was a passion project. It was directed by Anurag Basu. It was a very heartwarming and sweet idea, but it didn't do well, which really hurt," he said. "That's the only film in my career that hurt me."
