Career Graph of Shahid Kapoor:
The actor was first considered as the romantic hero with lots of freshness. His debut movie Ishq Vishk (directed by Ken Ghosh) portrayed as a conventional chocolate boy who has the chiseled body along with incredible dance moves.
Then Jab We Met was a turning point of his character. The portrayal of Aditya Kashyap seems effortless. The magical performance in this new age romance helped Shahid’s career to take flight.
Shahid deliberately broke the image of the chocolate boy in Vishal Bhardwaj’s dark comedy Kaminey. He swung between the two characters Guddu and Charlie with ease. And after this, Haider happened. In this Shakespearean tragic drama, Shahid played the title role with excellence.
Shahid’s another groundbreaking performance is Abhishek Choubey’s Udta Punjab where he portrayed the character of the drug addict, self-obsessed, rock star Tommy Singh.
And finally, his portrayal of Rana Ratan Singh in the movie Padmavaat helps to balance overzealousness of Ranveer.
