In Ken Ghosh’s upcoming movie, the viewers’ will see Shahid Kapur in a new look with long hair and six pack abs.
The multi-talented actor is working relentlessly on his new look for a new film that promises to out and out a dance film.
Confirming the news, Ken said, “Shahid is making changes in his physical appearance. The new film is an out-and-out dance film, which will be on the lines of a larger than life Broadway musical.”
The ‘Jab We Met’ star is reportedly leaving for a few foreign destinations to learn different dance styles and to work for attaining six packs for the film.
There are rumors all-around the Bollywood industry that chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor has some connection with cool Kerala beau Vidya Balan.
The latest hearsays also suggest that the romance between them bloomed on the sets of Pankaj Kapoor’s debut directorial venture ‘Kismet Konnection.’
Despite all the chitchats, Shahid said they are just ‘good friends’.
But, the media may think the closeness as the first step towards love. But Shahid has problem with that also.
Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan is enjoying her professional as well as personal life equally. Even she is accepting every moment of wrong attention in a right form.
Ever since Vidya’s name was put with that of Shahid’s, she tops the gossip column.
Moreover, there are rumors all-around the Bollywood industry that chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor has some connection with cool Kerala beau Vidya Balan. People have been talking about their love relation from the very beginning of the schedule of this movie.
There are rumors all-around the Bollywood industry that sweet and cute actor Shahid Kapoor has some connection with bubbly beauty Vidya Balan.
The latest chitchats also suggest that the romance between them bloomed on the sets of Pankaj Kapoor’s debut directorial venture ‘Kismet Konnection.’
People have been talking about their love relation from the very beginning of the schedule of this movie.
After a long time gap of five years, ace Bollywood director Aziz Mirza comes back to the film world to tell the story of an architect fighting for his big break in ‘Kismat Konnection’, which is going to release today (July 18).
Aziz’s daughter Rahila has written the movie’s script, which mainly discusses the role that ‘luck’, plays in one's life.
In the movie ‘Kismat Konnection’, ‘Luck’ plays a vital role in shaping up Shahid's career. The movie also has Kerala beauty Vidya Balan who becomes Shahid's lucky charm.
Bollywood’s chocolate boy Shahid Kapur and Kerala beauty Vidya Balan, said to have enjoyed great bonding during the making of their much-awaited movie ‘Kismat Konnection’, are not on talking terms at this time.
Their friendly relationship ceased with the release of the movie that failed to set box office on fire.
A source near to the production team of the movie, said, “Vidya and Shahid have not talked to each other after wrapping up the shooting of the film.”
According to tabloid reports, the Yash Raj banner film tentatively titled 'Hadippa' - with Rani Mukherjee and Shahid Kapoor in the lead - has been plagued with incorrect news, one after the other, right from the outset.
To begin with, there was a rumor that producer Aditya Chopra is not happy being with debutant director Anurag Singh's work on the film. Then, there were also reports that Rani was ghost directing the film and the next schedule was being planned with Aditya Chopra taking over the direction. Later, it was said that Rani had a rift with co-star Shahid Kapoor on the sets.
It seems that Shahid Kapoor can now hope to breathe easy. The big news doing the rounds is that Shahid’s parents viz. Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azeem have finally given their permission to their son to buy a new Yamaha bike.
A buddy close to Shahid Kapoor said, “Shahid is very fond of bikes. When he was shooting with for Ishq Vishk Pyar Vyar, we used to go on long bike rides along the Western Express highway while his parents were against it. Shahid Kapoor has always been an parents very much.”
‘Jab We Met’ which came almost one and half years ago is still fresh in everyone’s memory. The movie made the jodi of Shahid and Kareena even more popular, even though they had spilt up in real life. Such was the response to the movie.
Now Southern actors, Bharat and Tamanna are set to bring back the magic in Tamil in ‘Kanden Kadhalai’ - a remake of the 2007 hit.
The original film was set in Mumbai, Shimla and Bhatinda while the remake will be set in rural Tamil Nadu.
UTV Motion Pictures' Kaminey, directed by Vishal Bharadwaj, is slated to release on 5 th of June. Kaminey will be the first film to release post the IPL championship, which conclude on 29th of May. With most filmmakers shying away from releasing their films during the IPL season, Kaminey has grabbed the first Friday, post the championship.
Shahid Kapoor plays a double role, in which one is simple and innocent while the other one gets into a negative act. Priyanka Chopra plays the character of a marathi mulgi in the film.
Shahid Kapoor (born on February 25, 1981 in Mumbai, India) is a Bollywood actor, dancer and model.
Starting off his career by working in music videos and ads, Kapoor made his Bollywood debut as a background dancer in Subhash Ghai's Taal (1999).
After four years, he made his debut as a leading actor in Ishq Vishk (2003) and won a Filmfare Best Male Debut Award for his performance.
Following through with critically acclaimed performances in films like Fida (2004) and Shikhar (2005), he had his first commercial success with Sooraj R. Barjatya's Vivah
After a break-up with Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor has been linked with various celeb beauties like Vidya Balan and Sania Mirza but the actor has always denied having an affair with anyone.
Recently the actor was seen at a coffee shop in Mumbai along with glam-doll Priyanka Chopra. Being with Priyanka for a coffee is a different thing but booking the whole floor for sharing a cup of coffee is what sniffs suspicion about the couple.
We all know Priyanka Chopra was recently admitted in a hospital for her tummy infection. But not many are aware that the she has been put off from alcohol following her discharge. Sources claim, it is not just the doctors but her boy friend Shahid Kapoor who seems to have imposed a NO DRINKS rule on her.
After a rather subdued existence, post his break-up with Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor is once again in news with his film 'Kaminey;' as is his 'dumped lover-boy' image.
In fact, the of late frequent mention of the names of Kareena and her current flame, Saif Ali Khan, in Shahid-related news is having a disquieting effect on the couple as well as their family and friends.
Bollywood love stories aren’t for the fainthearted and keeping track of who’s linked with whom needs a supercomputer. This time the ones who are back in the news again are Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor and the buzz doing the rounds in Bollywood these days is of Kareena causing a rift in Shahid and his latest girlfriend Priyanka Chopra’s love life.
Recent statement by Kareena Kapoor added more confusion in the Saif-Kareena-Shahid-Priyanka love quadrangle. Kareena expressed her annoyance with the fact that her name is always dragged into any story linked with her ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor.
Kareena said: “Why am I being dragged into all this? I don’t like my name to come up in connection with other people’s lives. I’ve moved on and I wish Shahid Kapoor would also do so.”
It's an all-out war to make Shahid-Kareena's last film together(at least for a while) a worthy farewell.
Boney Kapoor who has three films including Wanted(featuring Salman Khan) and It's My Life(with Hurman Baweja in his comeback role) ready for release is at the moment focusing entirely on giving Milenge Milenge a 2009 look.
And for this purpose the Milenge Milenge crew recently slipped into Delhi to re-shoot portions of the film that might have got dated.
It seems that verbal cat fight is rising between two Bollywood beauties, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, in the arena of media.
Kareena accused Shahid and Priyanka of using her and Saif’s name to publicize ‘Kaminey’.
Priyanka said: “Kaminey is directed by the renowned filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj; it is produced by an established film corporation; it has Shahid Kapoor in a double role; it has me playing a Maharashtrian woman and so on.”
Priyanka’s statement was direct reply to the accusations put by Kareena.
There’s a new prankster in town, and believe it or not, it’s the quiet and reserved Shahid Kapoor. Lately choreographer Ahmad Khan and director Ken Ghosh have been getting distracted on the sets of their current film.
The reason is Shahid’s new found love for photography. Shahid has just bought himself a spanking new camera set up worth a couple of lacs, the D50 from Cannon with some sophisticated lenses and accessories, and he has been on a shooting spree ever since.
Director-cum-music composer Vishal Bhardwaj is the latest director to join a social networking site to promote his film. Vishal has joined Facebook, adding to the ranks of his Kaminey actors Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, among many other top Bollywood actors and stars.
Shahid Kapoor will be performing at the 2009 IIFA awards presentation in the special showcasing of the film Kaminey. The performance will be a solo act, and not with Priyanka Chopra, the lead heroine of the film, as has been reported earlier by some agencies.
Shahid is going to be performing on the song Dhan Taanaa. The decision to perform at the IIFA was taken late night on June 4th post consultation with Shahid Kapoor, Vishal Bhardwaj and the producers. -Sampurn Media
Shahid Kapoor has had to change his plans of attending IIFA and performing there for his upcoming film Kaminey. Though the actor was looking forward to his performance, the dates could not be adjusted as 3 of his films (Kaminey, Pathshala and Yashraj Films untitled) are ready for release and there is patchwork shoot remaining for Ken Ghosh’s untitled film. Since the dates of IIFA were clashing with the dates he had committed to a producer, Shahid has had to pull out of IIFA this year.
Despite all the negativity and controversy surrounding the making of his Shahid Kapoor and Genelia D'Souza starrer, director Ken Ghosh has wrapped up principal shooting of his yet untitled film (no, it is not called 'Yahoo'). There was a breeding controversy when Jiah Khan was replaced by Genelia D'Souza while later it was also insinuated that Shahid wanted his 'good friend' Priyanka Chopra in the film instead of Genelia and hence was giving cold vibes to the latter at the sets during the filming.
The noted young actor Shahid Kapoor has been voted the Sexiest Vegetarian in Asia, in the poll conducted by PETA. The results of this poll were announced by PETA Asia on their website. The poll was conducted by PETA in their Asia Pacific portal and the battle for the top slot carried on for a month. The final results were announced on June 10th, 2009. Shahid shares this honour with Natalie Portman from Hollywood, who was awarded the sexiest vegetarian in the USA region.
Recently a poll was conducted by a website asking their members to vote for the Hottest Couples of Bollywood this year. The main ingredient of masala Hindi films is the love story and the on screen chemistry between the two.
Renowned actor Shahid Kapoor is being impersonated on Twitter. There are about 3000 fans following this ID, assuming that this is the real Shahid. Shahid Kapoor is not registered on Twitter. This identity is fake and Shahid’s management has already put a complaint to the portal.
"My friends brought to my notice that there is a profile of Shahid Kapoor that is active on Twitter, and this person has been connecting with my fans, who don’t know that the ID is fake. I’d like to clarify that I am not on Twitter and my management has complained about this impersonation to the site" clarifies Shahid. -Sampurn Media
In a first of its kind action in India, Twitter has removed a fake ID of movie star Shahid Kapoor, on grounds of impersonation. This came about after Shahid’s publicist registered a complaint with Twitter for impersonation.
Don't get confused as we are talking of Shahid’s upcoming flick with Yash Raj Films, where he is supposed to look much younger than his age. For this, the handsome lad has worked equally hard and has gained the perfect look that was demanded of him.
In Kaminey he has build a well-toned body and dons a macho man look. On the other hand, in his next flick with Yash Raj and Anushka Sharma, the actor has slimmed down and is looking very young.
Tamil flick Nadodigal is proving to be a mega-hit and still running strong at the box office. Evidently, others too want to be a part of the film’s success, as the films remake right is been sold in Telugu and Hindi.
As far as Hindi version goes, the lead actors are yet to be finalized. There’s a buzz that Shahid Kapoor and Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire are strong contenders for cashing on the role.
Piggy Chops talent exposed to Shahid in Kaminey!
How did you landed up with Kaminey?
Shahid Kapoor has always been making headlines for one or the other reasons after his break up with his long-time girlfriend Kareena Kapoor. Sometimes he is indulged in word war with his ex-girlfriend while other times he is linked with a new girl by media.
Rumormongers have linked him with Amrita Rao, Sania Mirza, Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra.
It’s Shahid versus Saif in the charts. And if Shahid is jiving to Vishal Bhardwaj’s Dhan te nan in Kaminey, Saif grooves to Twist in Love Aaj Kal as though there’s no tomorrow.
As far as listeners’ choice goes, Vishal’s track has a marked market edge, and Pritam has no qualms in admitting it.
“I’m the biggest Vishal Bhardwaj fan, no two ways about it. His Dhan Te Nan is awesome. I can’t stop listening to it. I wish I had composed it,” says the exuberant composer.
Vishal Bhardwaj’s much-awaited forthcoming venture Kaminey is all set to hit the silver screen next Friday. After the success of Love Aaj Kal, everyone’s eyes are on Kaminey which stars Shahid Kapoor in a double role, Priyanka Chopra, Amol Gupte, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Shiv Subrahmanyam etc.
Here's a setback for Vishal Bhardwaj's directed upcoming flick 'Kaminey'.
The magnum opus 'Kaminey' starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have been given an A rating by Censor Board as they did not find it fit enough to be aired on TV.
As per the censor board, the movie contains some explicit violence scenes which will put a wrong impression on general public.
However, Vishal Bharadwaj did not seem happy with this decision. He said that he was very upset with the censor board decision as he wanted 'U/A' grade instead of 'A' grade for his film.
Shahid Kapoor seems to be under strict instructions from Aditya Chopra to not to expose his new look for his upcoming next with Yash Raj Films. Otherwise how could one explain his odd behavior, when photographers saw him coming down a FM Radio station in Mumbai on Monday, August 10th evening.
Mumbai, Aug. 12 : The released of Shahid Kapur and Priyanka Chopra starrer Kaminey and Life Partner, featuring Genelia Desuza and Fardeen Khan, has been postponed in Mumbai and Pune, as all cinemas and multiplexes in the state will remain closed for three days due to the swine flu scare.
Filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj''s much awaited film was to be released on August 14, but that has been delayed now.
However, the film will release in the rest of the country as per schedule.
DIL BOLE HADIPPA directed by debutant director Anurag Singh and produced by Aditya Chopra is all set to be released on 18th September. Its title track "Hadippa" with all its Punjabi beats is foot-tapping and energetic dance number which has gained huge popularity.
Shahid Kapoor and Katrina Kaif have won this year’s Rajiv Gandhi National Award for their achievements in the acting world.
The 12th Rajiv Gandhi National Award ceremony will take place today at the National Centre for Performing Arts, Mumbai. The prestigious awards were started in 1995 in an endeavour to keep alive the vision of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
The award honours personalities from various fields who have contribution in nation’s progress.
Recent movie ‘Kaminey’ starring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra may have won hearts of people, and got rewarding comments from various actors and filmmakers in Bollywood, but it has unconsciously hurt the religious sentiments.
Devotees of Lord Jagannath have revolted against the film for “derogatory reference” to Orissa’s reigning deity, Lord Jagannath. The priests of the world-famous Jagannath temple have burned posters of the film.
Trash talk Queen Miss. Sawant is mulling over Shahid Kapoor in her upcoming flick Dil Bole Hadippa. The reason behind all the hulla-gulla is that Shahid had saved her life during the shoot of a song sequence Discowale Kishko…
In an interview Rakhi stated, “Today I’m alive, and that is just because of Shahid. I was about to meet with a fatal accident when he came to my rescue.”
After the success of ‘Kaminey’, actor Shahid Kapur is on a high!
‘Kaminey’ proved to be a major money spinner, and Shahid has now increased his fee to Rs 15 crore to do a film.
The actor has joined the A-list actors and is the most bankable Bollywood star now-a-days.
Every year on his wedding anniversary on Oct 24, ace film director Subhash Ghai declares his up-coming projects.
‘Kaminey’ boy Shahid Kapoor is certainly one of the most talked about Bollywood stars these days.
The big news doing the rounds now is that Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao are going to appear naked in an advertisement for PETA.
The two hot stars will campaign with the theme 'Let Vegetarianism Grown on You'.
It is learnt that the two will be seen wearing nothing and wrapped in tomato vines as the look is ‘tomato-and-pepper’.
The two had earlier worked together in ‘Ishq-Vishq’ and ‘Vivah’.
Mumbai, Oct 29 Shahid Kapoor's "Paathshala", which has been ready for the last one year, will finally hit screens next year and the actor says his role is substantial even though it is not long enough.
Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor- This was one pairing which has just started showing signs of being an established 'jodi' on the big screen. Their 'Jab We Met' had become a good hit but much more than just box office outcome, what was loved most was the endearing presence of a couple that seemed to have got the nuances right for a romcom, a term which pretty much got coined in the context of Bollywood cinema post Imtiaz Ali packaged the whole love story genre in an entirely different manner. The same 'jodi' which was lynched for being supremely uneven in 'Fida' was now the darling of the masses, classes as well as the media.
Choreographer Ahmad Khan is back from the US after months’ shooting for a song with his best-friend Shahid Kapoor.
And Ahmad just can’t stop singing his star-pal’s praises for the generosity Shahid showed in the US. The actor actually made sure Ahmad Khan’s kids got a long-cherished dream to come true.
Says Ahmad fondly, “I had been promising my two sons Azaan and Subhan a trip to Disneyland for months. Earlier, when we shot in the US for another Yashraj Film Bachna Ae Haseeno I kept hoping there would be time. But I couldn’t manage to get away. But this time, Shahid made sure it happened.”
Mumbai, Nov 10 - Choreographer-turned-director Ahmad Khan says he can't thank his friend Shahid Kapoor enough for fulfilling a long-cherished dream of his children.

But I couldn't manage to get away. But this time Shahid made sure it happened," Khan, who is back from the US after shooting for a song with his best friend Shahid, told IANS.
Pankaj Kapur, who is directing Mausam, starring son Shahid Kapur, is looking desperately for a newcomer with a fresh face as the lead heroine. But Shahid thinks Katrina Kaif would be a good choice. And papa clearly disagrees…

Mumbai, Nov 17 - "Indian Idol 3" finalist Meiyung Chang from Dhanbad, Jharkhand, is reportedly making his big screen debut alongside Shahid Kapoor.
The film, which is actor Parmeet Sethi's directorial debut, also stars Anushka Sharma and is being produced by Yash Raj Films.
Chang, as he's affectionately known in the industry, has been strictly prohibited from talking about his acting debut.
The film's composer Pritam Chakraborty, when asked if he had any hand in Chang's casting, denied it saying: "Chang is a dear friend and he is seeing Monali Thakur. But I had nothing to do with it. Nor did I have any hand in his casting in Parmeet's film. I'm only the music composer on that project." (IANS)
New Delhi, Nov 19 : Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor's next project "Chance Pe Dance" has a slice of his own life as the film traces the journey of a struggler till he tastes success.
"Yes, there are many scenes in the movie that are similar to my life, but it's not intentional, they have just turned out this way," Shahid said in a press release.
The famous Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is constantly living in a fear to be encountered by his female fans. The success of the movies like Jab We Met and Kaminey has made him the one of the most sought actors in the Bollywood.
During the recent shooting under the Yash Raj Films, in Bangkok, the actor was cornered by some female fans, who wanted to see his bare torso. This incident made the actor to think about strengthening his safety measures.
A source said, "Shahid has a huge female fan following and is constantly mobbed at various places. At times it becomes too risky for him."
Mumbai, Dec 14 : Director Ken Ghosh admits he had arguments with Shahid Kapoor on the sets of his forthcoming film "Chance Pe Dance". He said it had to do with the actor's saturated schedules.
"For the first time in his career, Shahid was doing three films at the same time - 'Kaminey', 'Dil Bole Hadippa' and my film 'Chance Pe Dance'. Naturally, there was a conflict of interest," Ghosh told IANS.
Mumbai, Dec 15 - There weren't too many hits this year, but actors like Shahid Kapoor, Abhay Deol and Priyanka Chopra not only rose above the script but gave performances that towered above the rest.
Here is a list of 10 actors who made a mark in 2009:
Shahid Kapoor: It will be quite a predicament for the awards organisers as they will have to nominate Shahid Kapoor as 'Best Actor' and also 'Best Actor In A Negative Role' for "Kaminey"! The young actor came of age with the film.
A darling of females; an emerging superstar and, an assured box office draw. That's Shahid Kapoor for you who was happy being called 'Kaminey', danced along to the tunes of '.... Hadippa', take all the chances with 'Chance Pe Dance'…
Shahid, you must be enjoying your stardom, right?
Mumbai, Dec 27 - Shahid Kapoor says his forthcoming film "Chance Pe Dance" tells the tale of strugglers waiting for their big break. And the actor reveals he could relate to the character as he too was rejected at many auditions and even had to sleep in his car for a whole night.
"It's a very realistic film on strugglers. The story of the film flows through such a situation that any struggler can identify with whether he is struggling as an engineer, doctor or as a lawyer," Shahid told IANS.
Mumbai, Jan 4 : Shahid Kapoor may have worked hard on his body for his forthcoming film "Chance Pe Dance", but the actor says it was director Ken Ghosh who noticed his eight packs first.
"Ken wanted me to have a fit body and my workouts were aimed at making sure I looked and felt as fit as possible. It was during the shoot of the 'Pump It Up' song that Ken called me in the middle of a shot and asked me to come near the monitor. He had a mischievous smile on his face and said - 'Look at yourself... you have an eight pack!'" Shahid told IANS.
Mumbai, Jan 5 - "Chance Pe Dance" is not a biopic on Shahid Kapoor, clarifies director Ken Ghosh even though it does reflect the actor's real life struggle.
"When the idea to make the film came, Shahid's real life struggle was at the back of the mind. He is one of the very few actors who actually struggled to make it where he is. He didn't have any godfather to launch him," said Ghosh, who gave Shahid his first break with his directorial venture "Ishq Vishk" (2003).
Mumbai, Jan 6 - After months of silence, Shahid Kapoor has decided to put an end to the controversy surrounding his alleged differences with filmmaker Ken Ghosh. The actor says they never had any personal conflict while making "Chance Pe Dance" and that he doesn't need to be treated like a star on the sets of Ghosh's movie.
Mumbai, Jan 6 - Out of all different movie promotion ideas, this one seems new. Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Genelia D'Souza will be spending Wednesday night together in a car here to promote their forthcoming film "Chance Pe Dance".
Mumbai, Jan 14 - Shahid Kapoor says actors should be like "supermarkets", offering whatever the audience wants from them in terms of variety.
"I really believe this and I hope one day I can really become this. I think an actor should be like a supermarket. I think he should be able to provide the consumers whatever they want. Also it's very important to tell the audience that I'm not here to do only one kind of film. I am here to do all kinds of films," Shahid told IANS.
‘Chance Pe Dance’ is a tried-and-tested-formula story of the dreams, aspirations, struggle and ultimate triumph of a Bollywood struggler in a rather unconvincing manner – so much so that the film actually is far ‘too predictable,’ right from the beginning till the end!
The story revolves around Samir (Shahid Kapoor), a talented and passionate Bollywood hopeful, who is supposedly an embodiment of a host of those wide-eyed newcomers who come to Mumbai with hopes galore. The struggler Samir auditions relentlessly; works as a courier boy; has vada pao for meals; and even ends up living out of his car as he cannot afford to pay the rent of a room.
Here's some good news for Bebo-Shahid's buffs!
The news is that Kareena-Shahid starrer 'Milenge Milenge' is set for a March/April release.
Not only this, the makers of the film have decided to get the pair to do a much needed promotional video for the movie, which is inspired by Hollywood flick, 'Serendipity.'
Believe it or not, but the sources said that Shahid and Kareena have finally given nod to shake their legs together.
After auditioning a number of girls including Govinda's daughter Narmada, Shatrughan Sinha's daughter Sonakshi and Alyque Padamsee's daughter Shazahn, Bollywood director Pankaj Kapur has finally decided to sign Anil Kapoor's ladli beti Sonam for his upcoming film 'Mausam'.
In Mausam, Sonam Kapoor will be seen romancing with the chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor.
Mumbai, Feb 16 - Shahid Kapoor is amused that his father Pankaj Kapoor's directorial debut "Mausam" is being likened to Tom Cruise's "Top Gun" just because he plays an air force officer in the film.
"I am relatively new to the industry but at least respect my dad's credibility as a film personality. 'Mausam', which actually is a working title, has nothing to do with 'Top Gun' except for the fact that Tom Cruise played the role of a naval flight officer while in 'Mausam' I play an air force officer," Shahid told IANS.
Bollywood chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor turned 29 today.
The actor was given a surprise birthday bash by his family members and friends.
On micro-blogging site Twitter, Shahid posted, "I was given a surprise birthday party and I sure was surprised. Even dad and family were in on it. Wow! It's actually my first surprise birthday party."
Number of celebs, comprising Karan Johar and Farah Ali Khan, wished Shahid Kapoor on his birth anniversary.
Pankaj's loving son said, "Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the birthday wishes. Love you all."
Mumbai, Feb 26 - A sudden change in work schedule made Shahid Kapoor a nervous wreck last month. A timely visit to his father Pankaj Kapoor's spiritual guru in the hills however revealed to him the virtues of stillness in an overactive lifestyle.
Having finished all his assignments, the actor has no projects on hand at the moment apart from his dad's film "Mausam".
In contrast to reports, chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor spent his birth anniversary with his family members.
He was especially pleased with the presence of his loving mum with whom the actor shares a great emotional connection.
An elated Shahid said, "Everyone made plans that I didn't know about. It was quite annoying. Even my guest list was prepared."
"But no, the truth was there were no plans beyond the family."
New Delhi, March 14 - Children's films without stars don't make it big at the box office and that's a prime reason why choreographer Ahmad Khan roped in Shahid Kapoor for his first production "Paathshala".
"If Shahid Kapoor wasn't in 'Paathshala', it could become a documentary. The film is so serious and it's so beautiful. But people wouldn't have gone and watched just a children's film even though it deals with a serious issue," Khan told IANS in an interview.
Shahid has a nearly 40-minute appearance in the film.
Bollywood has frequently used chandeliers. So the prop was used even in Parmeet Sethi's Badmaash Company. While shooting for a music video on Sunday though, Anushka Sharma only just missed a chandelier that came down on the sets at MT Studio, Andheri.
Shahid and Anushka were shooting underneath a huge chandelier as was decided earlier. Everyone was shocked when it came down suddenly. Shahid however, was quick and got Anushka out of the way.
Mumbai, April 16 - Ram Gopal Varma's spooky thriller "Phoonk 2" will compete with "Paathshala" this week and the filmmaker says it has to be seen whether audiences choose Shahid Kapoor-Ayesha Takia or his film's crow and a witchy old lady.
Both the films have hit the screens Friday.
Paathshaala- Avoid this boring school
Rating: 2 out of 5*
Starring: Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia, Nana Pateka, Saurabh Shukla, Sushant Singh, Swini Khara, Dwij Yadav, Avika Gor, Anjan Srivastava
Director: Milind Ukey
Film: "Paathshaala"; Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Ayesha Takia Azmi, Nana Patekar, Anjan Shrivastava, Saurabh Shukla; Director: Milin Ukey; Producer: Ahmed Khan, Shaira Khan; Rating: ***
If a piece of cinema ever had its heart in its place, this is it. Don't let the sluggish pace, the absence of stylish shots and flamboyant frames fool you into believing that this is a film with no style.
The style behind "Paathshaala" is in its inner conviction.
New Delhi, May 3 - Remember Shahid Kapoor doing con jobs in Vishal Bhardwaj's hit "Kaminey"? The actor does the same, but in a more sophisticated avatar, in "Badmaash Company" releasing Friday.
Produced and distributed by Yash Raj Films, the movie is actor Parmeet Sethi's directorial debut. Shahid has teamed up with Anushka Sharma in the film that also stars comedian Vir Das and reality show star Chang.
Mumbai, May 4 - He played a bad guy in dark thriller "Kaminey" and will now be seen as a conman in "Badmaash Company". Shahid Kapoor says playing characters with a negative streak is an "escape route" from his good-boy image in real life.
"I think I always wanted to be a good boy, but I think inherently I have a 'badmaash' (naughty) streak in me. That's why I love doing this role. This is my escape route. What I couldn't do in my childhood, (I'm) doing it in films," Shahid told IANS in an interview.
Karan (Shahid Kapoor) is obvious that he doesn't wish to spend his life as a employee drone like his father. He dreams of becoming rich quickly. He begins as a carrier for a small-time smuggler and finally moves his way up to bigger con jobs and bigger bucks. Three pals Bulbul (Anushka), Zing (Meiyang Chang) and Chandu (Vir Das) join him on this high level ride, which finishes in self-destructive decadence, greed, war, split up, regret and different life lessons learnt with vital one being honesty is the best policy.
New Delhi, May 18 - After the success of Shahid Kapoor-starrer "Badmaash Company", the con is on in Bollywood. Two more films of the same genre - "Tees Maar Khan" and "Yamla Pagla Deewana" - are releasing later this year.
Yash Raj Films' "Badmaash Company", also starring Anushka Sharma, Vir Das and Chang, was actor Parmeet Sethi's directorial debut and revolved around four youngsters who carry out many con jobs.
Movie buffs can experience the fun again with Farah Khan's "Tees Maar Khan".
The Shahid-Bebo starrer 'Milenge Milenge' is giving Boney Kapoor a bad time.
The split between Kareena and Shahid is ruining the promotional video and giving restless nights to Boney.
The Kapoor duo may have ended their love relationship on a bad note, but amazingly, their 'Jab We Met' mesmerized the viewers and gathered honors for the pair.
Boney directed flick 'Milenge Milenge' will star these separated lovers together on screen for the first time after their split.
After a big gap, Shahid and Kareena Kapoor will be seen together promoting their much delayed flick 'Milenge Milenge'. The film will hit screens on July 9.
The film has been produced by Boney Kapoor, who is making attempts to bring both the stars together since long.
Boney has decided to move ahead with 'Milenge Milenge' without the leading lady, who has been delaying the flick for long.
Shahid Kapoor is doubtlessly one of the top dancers in the Hindi film industry and his aesthetically-inclined 'Pa' Pankaj Kapoor is reportedly assembling a specially-designed dance track in his upcoming flick "Mausam".
The film's producer Sheetal Talwar stated, "We don't want to disappoint Shahid's target audience, the young fans. So yes, Shahid will dance after all."
As per the promos running across channels, the makers of this film are hell bent on bringing Shahid and Kareena back together with its ‘Forgive and Forget’ theme.
Whether they will ‘meet’ in ‘real’ life is their personal call but will the film ‘meet’ people’s expectations?
Our in-house expert and very own celebrity astro numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi unravels the mystery –
According to the promotional videos running across different TV channels, the makers of ‘Milenge Milenge’ are hell bent on bringing Shahid and Kareena back together with the help of its ‘Forgive and Forget’ idea.
Whether they will get together in ‘real’ life is their personal call but will the film ‘meet’ public’s hopes?
Today, if a new film starring Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor would have been announced, it would have made a huge noise for sure. However, that is missing in case of 'Milenge Milenge' because the stars themselves are not quite leading from the front for the film's promotion. Shahid Kapoor is in UK shooting for 'Mausam' while Kareena Kapoor is off to Morocco to complete a quick schedule for 'Agent Vinod'. Incidentally, both these films are their home productions.
'Milenge Milenge' is a poor rehash of John Cussack - Kate Beckinsale starrer romantic comedy Serendipity (2001), which was about destiny bringing two lovers back together.
But perhaps makers Boney Kapoor and Satish Kaushik were not as blessed to speedily cash in on its success as their copy took a good 7 years to come on screen.
Milenge Milenge tells the story of Priya (Kareena) and Immy (Shahid) who meet one another in Bangkok and become lovers.
Ok, so the makers of 'Milenge Milenge' have led everyone to believe that their film is a success. While some may argue that how a film that nets just a little over 10 crores in its first week could be termed as a success in today's time, especially since it stars top players like Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, producer Boney Kapoor has a strong reasoning. After all, the film was made on a medium budget half a decade back and even if one counted the interest, the ROI (return on investment) has been gladdening.
In what is a first for Indian cinema, on Tuesday Shahid Kapoor flew a Tornado battle aircraft at the Royal Airforce airbase in Leuchars near Edinburgh as part of the shooting for his father’s Mausam.
In the film Shahid plays an airforce officer. It was felt by his father, the director, Pankaj Kapoor that shooting at the restricted airbase area on a real Tornado plane would considerably enhance the authenticity of the aerial shots showing the hero flying as an airforce officer.
Shahid Kapoor has made lifelong friends with Sonam Kapoor. Back in Mumbai after a marathon schedule with her in Scotland, the first film Shahid wants to catch is Sonam’s I Hate Luv Storys.
Says Shahid, “Yeah I want to see Sonam’s film and all the other films that I’ve missed while I was away”.
The buzz in the air of the B-Town is that the Kaminey couple, Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra will be seen together on the silver screen once again. They will be cast together in is a sequel to Ishq Vishk. Ishq Vishk was Shahid's debut film in Bollywood. Directed by Ken Ghosh, the original starred Amrita Rao in one of the two female leads.
An insider from the industry informs that producer Ramesh Taurani is keen to make Ishq Vishk 2 with Priyanka and Shahid. The producer has kept his plans under wraps as he does not want Ken Ghosh to get the wind of it. Right now, Taurani is busy looking for a financer for his venture.
Shahid Kapoor has been known to be very committed towards his father Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut movie ‘Mausam’. The actor was not even signing any other movie to concentrate fully on this project.
However, Shahid has made an exception this time by signing renowned producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s project titled ‘Heer Ranjha’. The movie will be directed by Sabir Khan of ‘Kambakth Ishq’ fame.
Lots of speculations have been made and said about the alleged Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor relationship but it seems that there is no end to it. Now, there is a report that the two Bollywood stars had recently gone for a short holiday in Goa!
It seems that they want to come out of the ‘good friends’ tag to a publicly declared couple. Last month, when Priyanka left for Brazil to shoot for the reality show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’, she was reportedly dropped by Shahid. The actress left for Brazil on 16th August and came back to Mumbai on 8th September, which was a gap of almost one month.
Shahid Kapoor has emerged as one of the best dancing heroes in Bollywood now. So, he has been reportedly approached to team up with another young sensational hero Ranbir Kapoor in the latter's first world tour. But, Shahid has reportedly said that he would not be able to take part in this event due to some prior commitments.
Shahid's spokesperson was quoted saying that the actor is being approached for the world tour with Ranbir repeatedly, but he has refused it due to the release of his upcoming movie Mausam and shooting for Sajid Khan's next.
Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor has been approached by two renowned female filmmakers Deepa Mehta and Mira Nair. But the actor is in a great dilemma because both the filmmakers can't see eye to eye so Shahid is bound to choose any one of them.
Both directors have offered Shahid very powerful and role-driven scripts and it will be a great achievement for him to work with any one of them. Now, it is left Shahid to make a choice between the two.
Bollywood actors Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have reportedly called off their relationship, though their fans are still not sure about what kind of a relationship the duo shared! According to reports circulating in the media, Shahid and Priyanka had come close to each other during the shooting of Kaminey. However there was no commitment in the relationship and it was this fact which ultimately led to the couple's so-called break-up. But is it all so simple or is there somebody behind Shahid's and Priyanka's sudden decision to call off their relationship?
Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor will be seen a lot on the screen in the coming year. The entire year he had been busy shooting for his dad Pankaj Kapoor's home production Mausam, in which he portrays a character who will be shown right from his young age to a gradually aging person with a matured look.
Bollywood and the never ending string of affairs are almost like bread and butter with each term contributing towards making the other seem complete. Bollywood has had such great affairs right from the time it has come into existence that more than half of the popularity of the stars are due to these affairs and counter affairs that always are an interesting aspect in glossy magazines and gossip columns.

Bollywood actors and rumored couple Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have decided that the only way to solve the differences that have greatly affected their blooming relationship in the past is to spend quality time with one another.

Contrary to earlier reports, Priyanka Chopra did not spend the New Year with Shahid Kapoor in Chandigarh. So they are not a couple, right? If reports are to be believed, Priyanka and Shahid are not only dating, they will also be engaged in a while! What is more, Shahid Kapoor also made it a point to impress Priyanka Chopra’s parents this New Year. According to the latest reports in the media, Priyanka Chopra did not visit Chandigarh to be with Shahid Kapoor, rather he made it to Goa to be with his ladylove and her family.
