"There is no southern connection as such. I think we should stop saying this southern thing because today almost every second film has that kind of action and people seem to be really liking it. The entire country responds to that," the 31-year-old said at the wrap-up party of 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero'.
"If people enjoy it in the film, I will be happy because it is for the first time I am doing this kind of action. There is more coming in 'Rambo Rajkumar'. So both the films will have a lot of action and I am excited," he added.
'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' will also see lead actress Ileana D'Cruz doing a few stunts and Shahid reveals that his co-star was nervous doing action scenes.
"She was very nervous when we were doing stunts because she says her skin is sensitive and it gets bruised easily. She was very paranoid about that," Shahid said.
"But we did a few rehearsals. Ileana was a little uncomfortable and we tried our best to make her comfortable," he added.
Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, 'Phata Poster Nikla Hero' stars Shahid as Vishwas Rao, an aspiring actor. The film hits theatres August 23.
