I’m so surprised to the see the way Shahid Kapoor’s career is turning out to be. I am more shocked than surprised!!
My first memory of watching Shahid Kapoor on screen dates back to 2003 when his first film Ishq Vishk, opposite Amrita Rao, released. I found him cute and had a huge crush on him. And well, back then I was just in my 4th standard.
Then came his next film opposite the established Kareena Kapoor. I personally thought the film was disastrous but Shahid and Kareena definitely made a great pair.
After Fida, Shahid appeared in a lot of films, making his presence felt! It was in the year 2006 that Shahid Kapoor’s fame rose a notch higher. The film Vivah made him a household name. Even to this day I remember Shahid as Prem in the film.
In 2007, Shahid tasted success like never before. Jab We Met was a milestone in his career. It was before Jab We Met that Shahid Kapoor’s long term relationship with Kareena Kapoor had hit rock bottom. However, the film Jab We Met, starring the two, was a commercial hit and he even won awards for this film.
Then in 2009 came Kaminey. The film received a good response. The film also starred the diva Priyanka Chopra. It was rumored that the duo were seeing each other.
After Kaminey, none of his films were a hit. His films became fewer and his almost disappeared from his social circles.
Gossip mongers said he was interested in Tennis champ Sania Mirza. Then Shahid was believed to be seeing Kismat Konnection co-star Vidya Balan. The latest we hear is that he is interested in Nargis Fakhri. Umm.. Don’t you think Shahid love affairs, or just rumors, are more than the number of hit films he has had?
He has acted with Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Rao and Priyanka Chopra the most number of times. They seem to be partially luck for him.
His recent release Phata Poster Nikla Hero was bad. His co-star Ileana D’Cruz, however, managed to gather praise for her performance in this film. His next release, R… Rajkumar, is all set to release this Friday and we hope he doesn’t disappoint us this time. This time he will be seen sharing screen space with Sonakshi Sinha.
The once upon a time cute Shahid seems to have come out of his boy-next-door image and has been trying different genres of films. Sadly, this change doesn’t seem to be working out for this young man!
And if you are wondering whether I still have a crush on Shahid Kapoor, then lemme yell a big NO!!
