By Pratiksha Shetty

Actors play a very influential role in shaping this society, especially young minds. Be it fashion, or a new catchphrase, actors take the lead on all new trends. One such influential actor who has been in the industry for 15 glorious years now, is Shahid Kapoor. Being a versatile actor, he has experimented with a wide range of roles throughout his career and succeeded in most of them. Initially recognised for portraying romantic roles, Kapoor was known as the chocolate boy of the industry. But that’s not all he’s made his name in. He is now known for taking up dramatic roles such as Haider or Tommy from Udta Punjab. After watching him play chocolate boy for so long, it was refreshing to see him play double role in Kaminey. Indeed, one of his most memorable performances. Even after playing an underdog in his last movie ‘Padmaavat’, he paved his way into people’s heart with his acting skills. With versatile roles came different hairstyles, from going for a buzz cut for Haider, to a trendy haircut in Shaandar, to long locks for Tommy, Kapoor’s hairstyle became a trend. From lead roles to the underdog, Shahid has done it all and aced in them!

Hitting a few lows in his career hasnt affected Shahid’s passion for acting. It has not wavered. The intensity still remains one of the most endearing qualites of Shahid. The Vivah star is one of the most desired men in Bollywood. His looks and charm won over the hearts of almost every girl since the early 2000s.

Not only is he good on screen, his marriage to the beautiful Mira Singh-Rajput, has set new couple goals for all of us. Moreover, his adorable daughter, Misha, is a thriving sensation and bundle of joy. The father-daughter duo make our heart go “awww” in every single picture! With another baby on the way, we wish the second time parents all the luck.

We’ll be seeing more of Shahid in ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ which is a light hearted and impactful social drama. He’s also set to star in the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’. The man is handsome, charming, talented and has a great sense of humor. And continues to do so- He wasn’t Asia’s sexiest man (2017) for no reason! A complete package, Shahid Kapoor continues to make his presence unforgettable in the Bollywood industry!
