Shraddha Kapoor’s portrayal of Aarohi in the film Aashiqui 2 got her a lot of attention and praise. Later this year, she was seen alongside Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor in Gori Tere Pyaar Mein wherein her performance was praised despite the movie being slammed.
She will be seen next in the role of a simple girl-next-door from a small town in the Shahid Kapoor starrer Haider. Will she be able to pull off the role?
“Pick up most major A-league actresses and they would be largely seen in events, endorsements, commercials and even films that project them as a hardcore metro girl. With glamour as the middle name of all major heroines, seldom are they seen making appearances in cities away from the cosmopolitan cities and select metros. However, Shraddha is an exception. As a rising star, she realises that penetration in the length and breadth of the country is very important to make deeper inroads. Moreover, her simple girl next door act coupled with presentation as a small town girl in movies is helping her as well,” says a source.
She will also be seen doing a similar small-town-girl role in Gabbar… Let’s see if she creates magic again…
