Shahid Kapoor flies F-16 at Aero India show

"I am very keen to get into F-16 as a co-pilot. I thank IAF and also Lockheed Martin for giving me this opportunity," Shahid told reporters ahead of his flying venture today.

The 29-year-old actor had to undergo one month's rigorous training and pass required tests before flying the combat aircraft.

"I think it is a privilege to get an opportunity (to fly a fighter aircraft) which does not come to all," said Shahid, who is the first Bollywood actor to have flown a F-16.

'Mausam' is directed by Shahid's father Pankaj Kapoor, with actress Sonam Kapoor playing the female lead.
