of February is a rather special date for all the crazy and drooling fans of
Shahid Kapoor as the actor celebrates his 32nd birthday.
Son of esteemed actor
Pankaj Kapoor and actor/dancer Neelima Azim, Shahid belongs to a well established filmy
family. This, of course, essentially formed the basis of his entry into Bollywood. And how could one
forget his outstanding personality amidst the breathtaking dancing talent that
can make any girl groove to his tunes?
son of an actor often make things effortless for some but Shahid was an exemption
as he struggled before making it big in Tinsel Town. His first shot before the camera belonged to television advertisements such as Pepsi and
various music albums through which he became popular and recognized amongst
the public. Being a skillful dance artist, he was also seen as a
background dancer in Dil To Pagal Hai
and Taal. Nevertheless, he finally got his big chance when he bagged the
lead role in his debut film Ishq Vishk
in 2003, alongside the pretty actress, Amrita Rao. The movie was a moderate
success but Kapoor went on to win the prestigious Filmfare Best Debut Award, gaining him instant popularity as an actor. However, his career, which begun quite
well, took a setback when movies such as Fida,
Dil Maange More, Deewane Huye Paagal, Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi, Shikhar, 36 China
Town and Chup ChupKe didn't
click with critics nor audience.
2006 brought a major breakthrough in Kapoor's life with Vivah, a
beautiful love story of two people after their engagement,
their love and trust for each other. Casted yet again opposite Amrita
Rao, the film was well accepted and loved by the audience. From there,
the actor continued to climb the ladder of success as his career graph
rocketed. Movies such as Jab We Met, Kismat Konnection, Kaminey,
Badmaash Company, Paathshaala, Mausam and Teri Meri Kahaani strengthened his position in Tinsel Town, making him the
most wanted and popular stars of Bollywood.
BollyCurry wishes Shahid a very happy birthday. Here's wishing him all success for his
upcoming films - Phata Poster Nikla Hero and Rambo Rajkumar - expected to release
sometime later this year!
