His maiden collection is said to have received a great response from the audience, especially the youth — which finds itself identifying with the brand's vision and its young and edgy look.

When asked about his idea for Skult Shahid said, "Skult is about free styling. Skult is about fashion and functionality. Skult is about being yourself wherever you are. It's about apparel that's an extension of your body. That allows you to express yourself with no restrictions or rules. Sometimes clothes that are cool feel too restricting. This line sets you free. Own style. Don't let style restrict you."

Meanwhile, the actor is busy shooting for his upcoming film Padmavati with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali opposite Deepika Padukone. The film is slated to release on 17 November, 2017.
