Mumbai: Shahid Kapoor who took the audience and critics by storm with his mind-boggling performance in ‘Udta Punjab’ won the most credible award of the year for it. The actor won the Filmfare Critic's Choice award for the best actor.
Shahid has delivered solid performances in films like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Haider’, ‘Kaminey’ to commercial movies like ‘Jab We Met’, ‘R... Rajkumar’, ‘Kismat Konnection’, ‘Ishq Vishq’ among others. He is now only associating with great content and films that will completely showcase his acting skills.
Shahid is one of the few actors of his generation who can completely transform and get under the skin of his characters, be it the drugged and delusional rockstar Tommy Singh in ‘Udta Punjab’, the dark and complex Haider Meer in ‘Haider’ or Guddu and Charlie in ‘Kaminey’.
Whether it’s growing his hair or going bald, covering up in tattoos or playing a drunk, despite never having a sip of alcohol in his life, Shahid is always up for a challenge and willing to transform his looks to make his character believable.
Shahid, who proved his mettle in ‘Kaminey’, ‘Haider’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ will now essay the role of an Indian soldier fighting for the British during the Second World War, in a love story based against the backdrop of war in Vishal Bhardwaj's ‘Rangoon’.
Shahid is currently working with two of the biggest actresses in the Hindi film industry- Deepika Padukone in ‘Padmavati’ and Kangana Ranaut in ‘Rangoon’....
