Raj Kumar Yadav plays slain lawyer Shahid Azmi in 'Shahid'.

"Shahid is a real life character and there is a responsibility when you portray a real character. I spent a lot of time with Shahid's family specially his younger brother and got to know him deeply through him. I wanted to understand his mental state, what was his thought process, ideology, how was he as a person. Then I used to go sit in courts for hours to observe lawyers, their working conditions and the functioning of the court. I also studied the basic of Islam to prepare for Shahid," said Raj Kumar in an interview with IBNLive.
