Shahid Kapoor Biography
Shahid was born on February 25th 1981 to critically acclaimed actor Pankaj Kapoor and dancer Neelima Azeem. He studied at Gyan Bharti in Delhi and later at Rajhans Vidyalaya Mumbai. Due to his father’s remarriage to actress Supriya Pathak, Shahid has three half siblings.
Passion and love for art always drew Shahid a step closer to dance and acting. In his adolescence he joined the Shaimak Davar Dance Classes along with doing whatever came his way including side roles, music videos for the band “Aryan” and the Pepsi advertisement along with Shahrukh Khan. We all know what a great dancer Shahid is.
Shahid began his career as an actor with Ken Ghosh’s “Ishq Vishk” which hit the theatres in 2002. With the instant fame and recognition he received, Shahid was flooded with offers. Soon he was seen in a no. of flicks like “Fida”, “Deewane Hue Pagal” and “Life Ho To Aisi”. But surprisingly, none of these movies could repeat what “Ishq Vishk” had done.
Films like “36 China Town”, “Shikhar”, “Chup Chup Ke” and the recent “Vivaah” did moderate business at the box office. Though Shahid’s latest flick “Fool N Final” opposite Ayesha Takia was another average, his performance was good.
Though Shahid has had an image of a candy boy, he is ready to experiment. He dislikes doing repetitive stuff cause doing different roles makes him grow and mature as an actor. Like most Indians Shahid loves cricket and enjoys watching movies in his spare time.
Shahid has been romantically linked to actress Kareena Kapoor, with whom he has done quite a few films too. His yet to be released film “Jab We Met” also stars the duo in slightly different roles. We do hope that this time the duo will manage to grab attention as well as the public to watch their forthcoming film.
