Career Profile

Shahid Kapoor is a Mumbai based boy with film background but yet whatever he has achieved till date is self earned. At the age of 22 he had offers from Boney Kapoor, Nitin Manmohan and Abbas Mustan. He has achieved all this on his own, though he has film family tag. His father is Pankaj Kapoor and mother is Neelima Azim. Shahid has inherited from his parents great acting talent. He had never told his parents that he wanted to be an actor before signing his first film.

Shahid Kapoor debut film is Ishq Vishk Pyaar Vyaar in 2003. It was a hit. He got the "Hero Cycles stardust Award" and "Film Fare" for the best New Comer of the year 2003. When he went for the audition of Ishq Vishk ... for the first time he was rejected because he looks too young. Then Ken Ghosh saw him a years later in a public place, he was completely changed. Ken asked him to come again for audition and their he was selected.

After the release of Ishq Vishk ... he wasn't offered any other films for few months though his film done well and his acting is also appreciated. Actually producers and directors had no subjects for a 22 years old guy. Then people started writing subjects for him and he started getting lots of offers. He had to wait six months before his second film went on floor. He had gone through 80 scripts between may and november 2003 before signing.

After Ishq Vishk he did films like Fida (2004) and Shikhar (2005), and he had his first major commercial success with Sooraj R. Barjatya's family drama Vivah (2006). He earned nominations for the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performances in the romantic comedy Jab We Met (2007) and the neo-noir Kaminey (2009).[1][2] He followed this initial success with roles in a series of box office flops before starring in the moderately successful action drama R... Rajkumar (2013).

Shahid might consider himself below par compared to his father but he certainly seems at top with other top stars. Stories are their that he's asking for a crore. But shahid deny's. He says, "he is getting what he is quoting as his film done well and people liked his work but not such a big amount like crore".
