Take a bow for Shahid Kapoor, the prince of Bollywood. The eternally young actor with his boyish looks and relentless acting is surely someone you can call the future of Indian cinema. Whether it be acting, dancing, showing off perfectly sculpted abs, or topping the charts with his dating gossips; this guy has broken the ceiling everywhere. We are proud to present to you the list of top 12 Shahid Kapoor movies.


12. Shaandar (2015)

A recent movie of Shahid Kapoor this one can be best described as a freaky and non-mainstream Bollywood film. It is based on two people who are confused about their life and can’t sleep. Like ever. The girl Alia Arora (Alia Bhatt) meets the boy Jagjinder Joginder (Shahid Kapoor) at her sister’s wedding of all places. She is just attracted to him at first but then starts falling for him gradually; especially when he takes the pain of impressing and taking care of all of her family members. He even makes her sister realize what a mistake she is doing by marrying the boy her mother has chosen for her. This is a non-generic romance where the girl and her prince charming ‘sleep’ into the sunset together.


11. Dil Maange More (2004)

Nikhil Mathur (Shahid Kapoor) is a simple boy born and brought up in the small town of Samarpur. He longs to remain in that place all his life with the girl he loves. But his girlfriend Neha (Soha Ali Khan) has dreams of roaming around the world and feels Nikhil is holding her down. She leaves for Mumbai in search of her dreams, and he follows her only to get his heart-broken. He meets another girl Sarah (Tulip Joshi), who also uses him and leaves him at a crossroad. Just when he starts to accept defeat, he meets Shagun (Ayesha Takia), who is the girl of her dreams. The one who will revive the love in his heart. The only problem – his past doesn’t seem to be keen on releasing him.


10. Fida (2004)

A romantic thriller, this is the story of Jai (Shahid Kapoor) who is a simple guy living his life in search of love. He sees Neha(Kareena Kapoor) and immediately falls in love with her. She rejects him at first but starts loving him when she gets to know him. In the meantime, the couple is under threat from an undercover don to whom Neha owes a large sum of money. To erase her debt, Jai accepts responsibility for a crime which was done by Vikram(Fardeen Khan), a professional hacker. After he escapes from the police’s custody, Jai comes to know that it was a combined conspiracy of Vikram and Neha to fool him. He vows to take revenge when he survives a gun down with Vikram and Neha. Will he survive and come back to take revenge on the people who betrayed him? Or succumb to fate’s ironical ploy?


9. Chance Pe Dance (2010)

This movie almost feels like Shahid Kapoor’s own story. Despite being veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor’s son, he didn’t take his help in launching himself in the industry. He was a part of Shiamak Davar’s dance company in the starting, and performed as a dancing extra in movies like ‘Taal’ and ‘Dil to Pagal Hai.’ From there he slowly solidified himself and got his big break with Ishq Vishk. The story of this movie is pretty smiliar. Sameer is a brilliant dancer wants to enter Bollywood. In poverty and constant house searching, he manages to give auditions only to be rejected every time. Sameer gets a chance to prove himself through a Talent search competition where he is sure he’ll shine like a star. Will his dreams come true or will his destiny continue to play cruel jokes on him?


8. R… Rajkumar (2013)

After a string of failures, which the critics claimed to be the end of Shahid Kapoor’s career, he bounced back and gave this hit movie. The reason this movie is so unique is that it was entirely different from any other movie Shahid had worked in. An Action Thriller with the right touch of comedy and cheekiness, you can call this film a smack dab Bollywood mainstream meat. Shahid plays the role of Romeo Rajkumar, a rowdy goon who falls in love with Chanda, played by Sonakshi Sinha. Then comes in the villain, Shivraj i.e. Sonu Sood. Unsurprisingly he also falls in love with the heroine and wants to keep her for himself. What ensues is a typical hero and villain battle where you don’t get any points for guessing who wins in the end.


7. Kismat Konnection (2008)

Raj Malhotra (Shahid Kapoor) is a brilliant architect who has horrible luck. He hasn’t been able to find a good job in the past few years and when he visits a gypsy asking her about the problem; she answers that he is in desperate need of a lucky charm. The next moment fate matches him up with a girl Priya (Vidya Balan) who brings with her all the luck he has been in desperate need of. In her presence, all his works seem to get sorted on their own. All doors are open, all success is his, and the angels of love smile upon him. The only problem? She hates his guts. He manages to make her trust him only to break it by telling her the real reason he wanted to be around her. He says he just wanted her luck with him and not the love she gradually starts feeling for him. What will happen when Priya comes to know the truth and decides to leave him? Will his luck walk all over him again?
