Shahid Kapoor was born on February 25, 1981 in Mumbai, India. His father Pankaj Kapoor was an actor and his mother Neelima Azeem was an actress and classical dancer. Shahid’s parents divorced when he was only three years old.
He spent the majority of his time living with his mother, but he also had a great relationship with his father and stepmother Supriya Pathak. Shahid has two siblings, a sister Sana and a brother Ishaan Kapoor. His brother is also an actor; the two starred in the film ‘Vaah! Life Ho to Aisi’ together.
Shahid Kapoor began his performing career starring in music videos and commercials. One of his most noted commercials was an ad for Pepsi, which featured Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, and Rani Mukerji.
After this, Shahid decided to join the Shiamak Davar Institute for the Performing Arts. He made his debut in 1999 in the film ‘Taal’ as a background dancer. Shahid would have to wait until 2003 for his first leading role, but it was well worth the wait.
It was in the film ‘Ishq Vishk,’ which also starred Amrita Rao and Shenaz Treasurywala. The film was a box office hit, and Kapoor earned a Filmfare Best Male Debut Award for his performance.
In 2005 Shahid earned his first Star Screen Award for Best Actor nomination for his role in the drama ‘Shikhar.’ From 2003 to 2006, Shahid Kapoor starred in several films but none were able to match the box office success of his debut.
Finally in 2006, with the release of ’36 China Town,’ he received his second box office hit. He released two more films that year which were hits at the box office. His final release of the year, the romantic drama ‘Vivah,’ was one of the highest grossing films of the year. The film earned Shahid his second Best Actor nomination at the Star Screen Awards.
During that same year, Shahid embarked on the ‘Rockstars Concert,’ his first world tour. The concert featured other Bollywood stars, such as Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and John Abraham.
In 2007 Shahid Kapoor took on the role of Aditya Kashyap in ‘Jab We Met.’ It became his most critically acclaimed role to date. He received several Best Actor nods at numerous award shows.
Shahid Kapoor has multiple projects set for 2009, including ‘PaathShaala’ and ‘Haddipa.’
From 2004 to 2007 Shahid Kapoor dated fellow Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor. The two have since separated but remain on good terms.
