"I had a great time shooting with Tabu, she is one of the finest actresses," Shahid told IANS.
"In fact, in the film, we also have actors like Kay Kay Menon and Irrfan, so it will hugely benefit the film. I have not yet shot with Irrfan for the film. I will start shooting with him by the mid of January," added the 32-year-old.
The actor will also go bald for the film and says it was the demand of the script.
He said: "I don't have any apprehensions. You as an actor have to do it when its required in the script. We all felt it is required so I am fine with it."
Directed by Bhardwaj, "Haider" also features Shraddha Kapoor.
