Shraddha Kapoor is a versatile actor, singer and dancer. She is the daughter of veteran actor Shakti Kapoor and made her debut in films via Teen Patti, alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley and R. Madhavan. Even though the film didn’t do well at the box office, Shraddha’s performance was well-received by critics.
But that was 2010 and Shraddha was still very young. As we celebrate her birthday today, we look at all our five favorite moments in which she’s proven herself to be a star.
1. Major debut as Aarohi in Aashiqui 2
Shraddha Kapoor’s role as Aarohi was filled with both vulnerability and strength. The film met with commercial and critical success and catapulted Shraddha as a mainstream leading actress in Bollywood.
2. Playing Ophelia/Arshia in Haider
Haider was Vishal Bharadwaj’s adaptation of Hamlet set in Kashmir. Shraddha plays Ophelia aka Arshia in this film. This dark and slightly deranged role was a difficult one. But Shraddha really pulled it off. Critics not only loved the film but also enjoyed her performance.
3. Her Dance moves in ABCD
Shraddha Kapoor has proved many times that she’s quite multi-talented. She proved that her dancing talent is immense as we saw her in ABCD. She’s also shooting for ABCD 2 alongside equally talented dancer Varun Dhawan.
4. A Haunting Performance In Stree
Stree had a very strong feminist undertone and Shraddha played the role of the ‘mysterious girl’ at the centre of this horror/comedy flick to perfection.
5. Songstress in “Galliyan” and “Bezubaan Phir Se”
One of Shraddha’s talents are being a multi-talented songstress who has also sung for various films such as Baaghi, Rock On 2 and Half Girlfriend. Is there anything this girl can’t do?
Shraddha Kapoor is currently working on a biopic based on Saina Nehwal and shall also be seen opposite Baahubali star Prabhas in the multilingual Saaho. She will also be seen in Baaghi 3 and in Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming comedy, Chichore.
