The actor was last seen in Teri Meri Kahani opposite ex-girlfriend Priyanka Chopra.

A source told Bollywood Hungama: "During the last one year Shahid has turned down 15 projects, among them were Mira Nair's The Reluctant Fundamentalist and Prakash Jha's Chakravyuh. He insisted on a complete hard-bound script from every filmmaker, big or small.

"This naturally didn't go down well with the likes of Jha and Nair who have worked with the biggest names in Bollywood and abroad, without having to commit a full hard-bound script to the actor.

"Only Aamir Khan used to demand a hard-bound script and he would even insist on signing every page of the script so that nothing was changed. That rigid system of working no longer works for any actor, not even Aamir."

They added: "Raj Kumar Santoshi's new film Phata Poster Nikla Hero is the first film Shahid has signed without demanding a full script.

"He next goes into Prabhu Dheva's Namak where he needs to completely redefine his physique and body language to do his full-fledged action role.

"Shahid would phase out his public appearances and will be seen very selectively until Santoshi's and Prabhu Dheva's films are ready. Until then he has decided to stay as much out of the limelight as possible."

Kapoor revealed in August that he would like to join the so-called "100 crores club".

However, he also admitted that he still struggles with shyness despite his Bollywood fame.
