Shahid Kapoor gets candid on completing 20 years in Bollywood

Shahid Kapoor is an Indian actor who appears in Hindi films. Initially recognised for portraying romantic roles, he has since taken on parts in action films and thrillers, and is the recipient of several awards, including three Filmfare Awards.

He gets candid on completing 20 years in Bollywood .let’s take a look at his incredibly evolving Bollywood career over a span of two decades.

Fond of dancing from childhood, Shahid joined famed-choreographer Shiamak Davar’s dance institute as a teenager. He went on to appear as a background dancer in the films ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’ (1997) and ‘Taal’ (1999).

Shahid made his acting debut with Ken Ghosh’s teenage romance ‘Ishq Vishk’ (2003). In the film, he played the role of Rajiv, a college boy-next-door, who wants the hottest girlfriend on campus. 

After mastering teenage romance films, Shahid worked in ‘Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi!’ (2005) in which he played Aditya, as loving and hardworking man.

Shahid and Amrita’s on-screen chemistry was a hit, as the duo was paired once again with the 2006 film ‘Vivah’. Shahid played the role of Prem, a very gentlemanly, family-type young man from an affluent family.

Shahid’s major tryst with success happened with Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Jab We Met’, in which he paired opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan. While Shahid and Kareena had also starred together before in ‘Fida’, ‘Chup Chup Ke’ and ’36 China Town’, their on-screen chemistry in ‘Jab We Met’ set major on-screen couple goals in the hearts of their fans.

And then with ‘Kaminey’ (2009), Shahid wore the skin of a character who isn’t all white and cute. While he rocked his performance in this new character, Charlie, he also played the simpleton man — Guddu — as his identical twin.

A landmark film in Shahid’s career is Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Haider’ (2014), an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play ‘Hamlet’.

If we thought there could be no experimental character for Shahid after Charlie and Haider, then Shahid proved us wrong by playing Tommy Singh in ‘Udta Punjab’ (2016).

After ‘Udta Punjab’, he opted for another path-breaking project titled ‘Kabir Singh’, the Bollywood remake of the Telugu movie ‘Arjun Reddy’.

Shahid is now all set to woo the audience with the never-seen-before avatars in the upcoming projects. He is coming up with a sports drama ‘Jersey’, in which he plays the role of a father and husband, with a broken dream career. The film, also starring Mrunal Thakur, will hit the theatres on April 14.

Apart from ‘Jersey’, Shahid has other mixes of characters including his upcoming digital debut, a quirky thriller drama directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, along with an untitled action film directed by Ali Abbas Zafar.

Shahid’s action film ‘Bull’, directed by Aditya Nimbalkar, will hit the big screen in April 2023.
