Daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor, Shraddha began her acting career with a brief role in 2010 with Teen Patti, where she shared screen space with the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley and R. Madhavan. The film failed at the Box Office and she came under the scanner.
Post Teen Patti, she was seen in Luv Ka The End (2011), a film that was produced by Yash Raj Films. This one too failed to create a stir at the Box Office.
Reportedly, she also lost her role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s My Friend Pinto because of the movie’s failure.
She was then offered Aurangzeb, a Yash Raj Film, as part of her three film contract with the studio, but this gusty girl cancelled her deal with the production house and walked out of the project. Now this created a lot of negative buzz about her in media.
However, it was with Aashiqui 2 (2013), Ek Villain (2014) and Haider (2014) that Shraddha Kapoor finally established herself as the next big star in Bollywood.
For Shraddha Ek Villain, not only made her commercially successful but also established her as a singer.
Shraddha Kapoor’s mother Shivangi Kapoor is the daughter of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle’s paternal aunt. Shivangi herself is a trained singer, and Shraddha has surely got her singing skills from her.
In the recently concluded Global Indian Music Awards, Shraddha Kapoor was awarded the Celebrity Singer Of The Year award.
On receiving the award, Shraddha was overwhelmed and got emotional as she went up on the stage to receive the award. She dedicated the award to her mother and stated that it was an honour for her to receive the award as she is passionate about her singing.
Currently she is working on Any Body Can Dance 2, opposite Varun Dhawan, which is scheduled for release in June 2015, post which she has been signed on for the sequel to the 2008 film Rock On, co-starring Farhan Akhtar, Purab Kohli and Arjun Rampal.
Here’s wishing this Kapoor girl a very happy birthday.
