Shahid Kapoor wanted to choose professional dancing as his career and entered the entertainment world as a background dancer in Taal.
However his stint with stardom began in the year 2003, almost twelve years from now, with Ken Ghosh’s Ishq Vishq opposite Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala.
The film did not create ripples at the Box Office, but a star was born, who could dance well, looked cute and had acting in his genes.
Post his debut followed a series of flops like Fida (2004), Dil Maange More (2004), Deewane Huye Paagal (2005), Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi (2005), 36 China Town (2006) and many more.
Things did not go they way they were planned and both his professional and personal life were in a mess. Shahid Kapoor was known more for his link-up’s with Vidya Balan, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra rather than his work.
But year 2006 and 2007 were landmark years in his career as in the year 2006 released Vivah and 2007 it was Jab We Met; Shahid Kapoor had finally arrived.
He then went on be part of films like Kaminey, R…Rajkumar and the very recent Haider proving that he is here to stay.
Shahid Kapoor who turns thirty four today, is the son of actor Pankaj Kapur and Neelima Azim. He is also the step nephew of Naseeruddin Shah and his great great grandfather is the acclaimed film director, screenwriter, novelist and journalist K.A. Abbas.
He has had his share of bad choices and Box Office duds but Shahid has made a mark in showbiz.
He is currently busy with Shaandaar opposite Alia Bhatt and Udta Punjab opposite Kareena Kapoor is set to go on floors soon.
Here’s wishing Shahid Kapoor very happy birthday and may all his dreams come true!!
