Shraddha Kapoor is one of the most loved actors in the film industry today. The 36-year-old actor, who is known not just for her acting prowess, is celebrating her birthday today.
Kapoor is not only confined to acting but has also won plaudits for her incredible dancing skills, melodious voice, and sartorial fashion choices. She is often called one of the most humble and down-to-earth celebrities in the industry.
She started her acting career with the film ‘Teen Patti’ in 2010 alongside stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley and R. Madhavan. The film did not perform well and her debut was an unsuccessful one. She went unnoticed, however, there was no turning back from that moment.
On her birthday, let’s take a look at her best Bollywood moments.
Her Shining Moment
Kapoor came back strong with her second film, alongside Aditya Roy Kapur, Aashiqui 2. It became one of the highest-grossing films of 2013 and Shraddha became the most in-demand actor in Bollywood, getting applauded for her role.
The Performing Star
After the success of Aashiqui 2, she mesmerised the audience and critics equally with her incredible performances in films like Haider, ABCD 2, Ek Villain, Half Girlfriend, and many more.
She really hit it out of the ballpark in Stree, a film that was then called her best performance. Shraddha proved that she can be a commercial actor with her film ‘Saaho’, co-starring Prabhas. The film was made on a budget of Rs 350 crore by director Sujeeth.
Even though Saaho did not perform that well at the box office, the actors were praised for their chemistry and acting. After Saaho, Kapoor has not had any flop films and is today one of the most successful actors in Bollywood.
A phenomenal dancer
The actor has shown time and again that she is an all-in-one package. Playing the role of a dancer in ABCD 2, she was then hailed as the best female dancer in the industry.
She kept on treating her fans with more groovy dance numbers like Psycho Saiyaan (Saaho), Milegi Milegi (Stree), Show Me The Thumka (Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar), Illegal Weapon (Street Dancer) and many more.
A remarkable singer
She is also a trained classical singer and debuted with Galliyan in her film Ek Villain. She won hearts with her melodious voice in Bezubaan Phir Se (ABCD 2), Sab Tera (Baaghi), Tere Mere Dil (Rock On 2), and more.
Shraddha’s share of controversies
Shraddha Kapoor had been rumoured to have dated her co-star Aditya Roy Kapur during the filming of Aashiqui 2. She was also boycotted by the paparazzi because of misbehaving with the media during the promotions of Ek Villain, where they refused to click her pictures.
She will be next seen in Luv Ranjan’s Tu Jhooti Main Makkar opposite Ranbir Kapoor. The film is set to release on March 8 and is being loved by the looks of it, on social media.

Jaane Jaan social media review: Kareena Kapoor OTT debut is a mix of Drishyam and Kahaani
Sujoy Gosh relied too heavily on the strength of his actors, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Vijay Varma, and let them carry the entire movie on their shoulders without much concern for the plot.
It is challenging to surpass the standard that Sujoy Ghosh set for himself with the Vidya Balan-starring film Kahaani. And it’s clear in the majority of his later ventures where he took on the director’s role. With Jaane Jaan, the trailer foretold great things and made things appear to be quite exciting, but the movie only just manages to live up to the anticipation or even approach the intrigue level it set out to produce.
Jaideep Ahlawat’s first dream in Jaane Jaan is unmistakably grim. On the top left of the screen, there is a brief warning that appears as soon as the movie starts, warning you that it contains references to drug use, suicide, and domestic violence.
This warning, together with the nightmare of Jaideep’s character, quickly paints a clear image of what you are getting into. This is a Sujoy Ghosh film, after all.
Halfway through Jaane Jaan, everyone was convinced that even the director knew this wasn’t one of his best pieces. However, it’s possible that he relied too heavily on the strength of his actors, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat, and Vijay Varma, and let them carry the entire movie on their shoulders without much concern for the plot.
And these three give flawless performances, which are what keep Jaane Jaan from drowning. They give moviegoers with a rewarding experience when taken as a whole. Jaane Jaan would have been a fantastic viewing if I had to limit my attention to just watching them perform. However, the movie has a number of flaws that are difficult to overlook.
While people have few complaints about Ghosh’s commitment to his work as a director, Jaane Jaan clearly needs more pace, complexity, and nuance to hit you hard, which it never does, with the possible exception of one sequence concerning physical abuse.
Kareena Kapoor starrer Jaane Jaan is based on the best-selling Japanese novel The Devotion of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino. An acclaimed book that has been translated into numerous languages and turned into films in South Korea, China, Japan, and even Tamil (‘Kolaigaran’).
