He burst onto the Bollywood scene with his chocolate boy looks and amateur acting skills in Ishq Vishk on MayÂ 9, 2003. Since then, life has been a roller coaster ride for Shahid Kapoor, who recently completed 12 years in the Hindi film industry. His acting skills have evolved beautifully over the years and he has become every director’s dream actor. In addition to this, his looks have matured but he still retains a little bit of his innocence. From Kaminey to Haider, Shahid has proved that he’s a force to reckon with.
Shahid’s professional life has been going great guns considering that he recently won a National Award for his performance inVishal Bhardwaj’s Haider. His personal life is also looking up with his impending wedding to Delhi girl Mira Rajput. He says that it took him 10 years to understand that chasing fame and success will make it go away and that only when one starts searching within, will he or she find success outside. Wise words from one of the most talented actors of the decade.
