The best part about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've
been. With this thought in mind, BollyCurry is here to celebrate the birthday
of two of Bollywood's shining stars, the vivaciously stunning Shraddha Kapoor
and the musical genius Shankar Mahadevan.
An actress-turned-transitory-singer, Shraddha Kapoor was born on March 3, 1989, and is the
daughter of industry's celebrated actor famous for his antagonist cum comic portrayals,
Shakti Kapoor, and Shivangi Kapoor. She is the niece of the yesteryear beauties
Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini Kolhapure.
are aware of the fact that Kapoor made her acting debut with Teen Patti in 2010 alongside Amitabh
Bachchan, Ben Kingsley, and R. Madhavan which earned her a nomination for the
Filmfare Award for Best Debut Female. Her next film Luv Ka The End (2011) also bombed at the box office, although
Kapoor was praised for her performance.
Suri's musical Aashiqui 2 (2013) was
the movie that catapulted Kapoor towards success. Her pairing with Aditya Roy
Kapur was lauded by all and she turned into a star overnight. After playing a
guest appearance in the 2013 romantic-comedy Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, she was seen in Mohit Suri's romantic-thriller
Ek Villain (2014) and Vishal
Bhardwaj's crime-drama Haider (2014).
She also had a special appearance in Rensil D'Silva's comedy-drama Ungli (2014) for the song "Dance
Basanti". Kapoor is next slated for
the dance film ABCD 2, which has
already caused a worldwide rage owing to her casting opposite the industry's latest heartthrob, Varun Dhawan.
On the other hand, born on
March 3, 1967, is Shankar Mahadevan. He was born into a Tamil Iyer family. With music
bred into him right from the earliest stages of childhood, he was first appreciated
for his musical album Breathless in
the year 1998 which till date remains one of his best works. He forayed towards
music direction and then went on to become a part of the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio.
