Today marks the birthday of the super cool actor and the star of Kaminey. Of course, we talk of none other than Shahid Kapoor!
Shahid Kapoor was born on 25th February, 1981 to Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azeem. His parents separated when he was just three years old with his father then re-marrying to actress Supriya Pathak. Kapoor now has two stepbrothers, Ishaan Khattar and Ruhaan Kapur, and one stepsister, Sanah Kapur. It is widely known that he spends most of his free time with them and dotes on all their whimsies. He completed his schooling in Gyan Bharati Vidyalaya, Delhi and then in Rajhans Vidyalaya, Mumbai.
Kapoor began his career by acting in commercials and has adverts such as Pepsi part of his notable portfolio. He is a trained dancer from Shiamak Davar Institute for the Performing Arts and thus subsequently appeared in the popular music video "Aankhon Me Tera Hi Chehra" by Aryans. In 1999's Taal, Kapoor also appeared briefly as a background dancer in the song "Kahin Aag Lage Lag Jaaye" where he is seen covering Aishwariya Rai Bachchan's head with a dupatta.
Kapoor debuted in Bollywood with the lead role in the movie Ishq Vishk (2003) along with Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala. The youthful chick flick was well received at the Box Office and earned him the much sought after Filmfare Best Male Debut award. In 2004, the dancing sensation starred in the thriller Fida opposite Kareena Kapoor. The film failed to make a mark at the BO but lead to the beginnings of his short lived but highly speculated relationship to the Kapoor lass as they publicly started dating. 2005 saw him pair up once again with Rao in Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi along with his stepbrother, Ishaan. In 2006, he starred in Vivah opposite Rao again. The film was a major BO success, equating the jodi of Kapoor and Rao as one of the much loved jodis of Bollywood.
The chocolate boy star went on to star in many movies in the following years, but rarely tasted the same success as his previous films. A few movies which shined some light on his downhill career are: Jab We Met (2007) where he was nominated for the Filmfare award for Best Actor and Kaminey (2009) which turned his status from boy-next-door to royal hunk. Films such as Badmaash Company (2010), Mausam (2011) and R...Rajkumar (2013) also gave him uplift to his career graph..
Kapoor is currently hard at work on an upcoming movie called Haider along with Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu Hashmi and Kay Kay Menon. The film is said to be an adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet and is rumored that he will be appear in three different looks, one of which is bald. A look from the sets was released by Kapoor himself on Twitter and has received several positive reviews from viewers, fans and critics alike.
