Shahid Kapoor
ACTOR
Born: February 25, 1981
EARLY LIFE
Shahid Kapoor, the son of actors Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azim, was born in New Delhi. He attended the Gyan Bharati School in Delhi and Rajhans Vidyalaya in Mumbai and went on to complete his graduation from Mithibai College, Mumbai. Kapoor took a keen interest in dancing from an early age and joined the Shiamak Davar’s dance institute. He appeared as a backup dancer in many films during the 1990s.
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
Shahid made his debut in Bollywood with the film, Ishq Vishq, which won him the fandom of young girls. He eventually went on to bag films like Fida (2004), Chup Chup Ke (2006) and Kismat Konnection (2008), but it was his performance in Jab We Met (2007) that had the critics and audiences raving about him. Soon after, he experienced another success with Kaminey (2008), which actually helped him set his foot firm in the industry as an actor, owing to his portrayal of two identical twins with starkly opposite personnas. He then went on to sign films like Chance Pe Dance (2010) and Badmaash Company (2010), both of which were moderately successful at the box office. Following that, he appeared in the film Mausam (2011), which was a gift to him by his father, Pankaj, who penned the character with Shahid in mind. His performance in R… Rajkumar (2013), won him several good reviews for his dance moves. Shahid’s recent film includes Vishal Bhardwaj’s exceptional film Haider (2014) for which his acting received rave reviews. He also won the Filmfare, IIFA and Stardust Awards for Best Actor for the same. His last movie was Shandaar (2015) and his upcoming movie, Udta Punjab, is scheduled to hit theaters in June, 2016.
