Shraddha Kapoor, need we say more? There wouldn’t be single movie lover in this country who saw her and immediately didn’t fall in love with her. She arrived big on the scene with the role of Arohi in Aashiqui 2 and never looked back again. And if that wasn’t enough, the actress made us love her even more with that Butterfly-Waterfall shot of Galliyan in Ek Villian. Well, it’s her birthday today, and we decided to let you in on some very interesting facts of the petite actress.
Shraddha is a half Maharashtrian as her father Shakti Kapoor is a Punjabi guy and her mother Shivangi is a Maharashtrian and Shraddha is of predominantly Marathi ancestry. Kapoor’s family members, including her father Shakti Kapoor and mother Shivangi Kapoor, her elder brother Siddhanth Kapoor, her two aunts Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini Kolhapure are actors in films.
Shraddha Kapoor contrary to the popular belief ( yeah ! Not Aashiqui 2 or Love Ka The End ) made her début with Amitabh Bachchan in Teen Patti. It was however after Aashiqui 2 that she truly became a raging star in the country.
Shraddha Kapoor had also been selected to play the titular role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s My Friend Pinto. However after Teen Patti received poor response, Shraddha was replaced with Kalki Koechlin. Thankfully for us, she got the role of Arohi not much later. And the rest is history.
Shraddha favorite song is “With the sunshine” by Ocean Drive while her favourite book is “Shantaram“ By Gregory David Roberts.
Shraddha Kapoor, the fiesty actress of Haider in an interview revealed that she is Astraphobic ( The Fear Of Lightning and Thunders ). Lightning scares the wits out of this beautiful actress.
The actress is pretty much a ‘chai‘ addict ( or ‘Chai’ nese if you will ). Shraddha loves to have her cup of tea sitting in the sea-facing corner of her apartment. Shraddha’s obsession with chai is such that she deals with all her issues while sipping her favourite tea. That’s pretty good no?
Shraddha loves romantic movies and her favorite one is “Pyasaa“. While choosing her dad’s movie she liked “Andaz Apna Apna“. Shraddha Kapoor is a huge fan of Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. She loves Priyanka Chopra and Nutan while choosing her best out of actresses. Shraddha also has a huge celebrity crush on Johnny Depp.
Kapoor was trained as a singer since her childhood as her maternal grandfather and mother are classical singers and later marked her singing debut in the 2014 romantic track Galliyan. Later on she went on to sing for the Vishal Bharadwaj’s Haider as well.
Kapoor established herself as one of the most popular celebrities in India according to Google Trends she ranked at number 7 in 2013 and at number 8 in 2014 among the ″Top 10 Bollywood actresses″. In late 2013, a poll conducted by FHM India ranked Kapoor at position five on ″100 Sexiest Women In The World 2013″. She also rated at number 6 in ″India’s Most searched celebrities in 2014″ poll which was held by McAfee.
