Shraddha Kapoor Wiki, Age, Biography, Height, Boyfriend, Family, Images, And More

Shraddha Kapoor (born 3 March 1987 or 1989) is an Indian film actress best known for her performances in Hindi cinema. Kapoor, one of India's highest-paid actresses, has appeared on Forbes India's Celebrity 100 list since 2014 and on Forbes Asia's 30 Under 30 list in 2016.

She began her acting career as the daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor, with a minor appearance in the 2010 heist film Teen Patti, followed by her first main role in the teen drama Luv Ka The End (2011). Kapoor made her breakthrough as a singer in the hugely popular love musical Aashiqui 2 (2013), for which she received a Filmfare Award nomination for Best Actress. The next year, she played Ophelia in Vishal Bhardwaj's critically acclaimed ensemble film Haider (2014). Kapoor rose to prominence after appearing in the romance thriller Ek Villain (2014), the dance drama ABCD 2 (2015), and the action picture Baaghi (2016). After a string of underwhelming releases, her highest-grossing films were the horror comedy Stree (2018), the action thriller Saaho (2019), the comedy-drama Chhichhore (2019), and the romantic comedy Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (2023).

Kapoor has sung numerous of her film songs in addition to starring in them. She is a celebrity endorser for various brands and goods, and she debuted her own clothing line in 2015. Kapoor is the second-most following Indian actor on Instagram.

Kapoor grew up in Mumbai, where he was born and reared. Kapoor is of Punjabi origin on her father's side and Marathi and Konkani descent on her mother's side. Her maternal grandfather, Pandharinath Kolhapure (the nephew of Deenanath Mangeshkar and maternal first cousin of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle), and maternal grandmother were also from Kolhapur. Kapoor claimed in an interview with The Hindustan Times that she was reared in a Marathi cultural setting because her maternal relatives lived in Maharashtra. She has stated that as a child, she went through a tomboyish period and defined herself as having a strong attitude, as a result of which she purposefully picked fights with guys.

Her father Shakti Kapoor and mother Shivangi Kapoor, her elder brother Siddhanth Kapoor, and her two aunts Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini Kolhapure are all actors in Indian cinema, as is her mother. She is the great-granddaughter of Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Meena Khadikar, Usha Mangeshkar, and Hridaynath Mangeshkar, among others. Kapoor, who comes from an acting family, has always wanted to be an actress. In front of the mirror, she used to rehearse film dialogues and dance to Bollywood tunes while dressed in her parents' clothes. Throughout her childhood, she followed her father to several filming locales. During one of David Dhawan's shootings, Kapoor befriended actor Varun Dhawan and played with him, holding a torch pretending to be a camera while delivering film lines to each other and dancing to Govinda's film songs.

Kapoor attended Jamnabai Narsee School before transferring to the American School of Bombay at the age of 15. Shetty said in an interview with The Times of India that they all used to compete in dancing competitions. Kapoor, who considered herself competitive at the age of 17, practiced soccer and handball since she thought these games were difficult. Kapoor then enrolled at Boston University to specialize in psychology, but she dropped out in her freshman year to star in her debut film Teen Patti when producer Ambika Hinduja saw her on Facebook and cast her. Shakti Kapoor claimed in an interview with Filmfare that she was just 16 years old when Salman Khan offered her her first film, Lucky: No Time for Love (2005), after seeing one of her school play performances, but she turned it down since she wanted to be a psychologist. Kapoor has been singing since she was a child because her maternal grandfather and mother are both classical vocalists.


Early efforts and achievements (2010-2016)

Kapoor made her acting debut alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley, and R. Madhavan in the 2010 thriller Teen Patti. She portrayed a college student. The film garnered mostly unfavorable reviews, while her acting was praised. According to's Preeti Arora, "though a bit raw, she has a lot of potential." "Shraddha Kapoor makes an interesting debut as the edgy youngster who sheds her specs for sleaze, with alacrity," wrote Nikhat Kazmi. The film did not sell well at the box office, but Kapoor's performance garnered her a nomination for Best Female Debut at the Filmfare Awards. Following her debut, she signed a three-film agreement with Yash Raj Films and appeared opposite Taaha Shah in their 2011 adolescent comedy Luv Ka The End. Kapoor played the major role of a teen who plots revenge on her boyfriend when he cheats on her. The film received mixed reviews from reviewers and flopped at the box office. However, Kapoor's performance was praised by critics. "Shraddha is a revelation, catching you off guard with a confident performance," Taran Adarsh observed. She's electrifying in the sequence when she breaks down after discovering her lover's true intentions." Kapoor earned the Stardust Searchlight Award for Best Actress for her performance. As part of her contract with Yash Raj Films, Kapoor was offered the lead female role in Aurangzeb (2013). She instead signed on to Vishesh Films' Aashiqui 2 (2013), canceling her three-film deal with Yash Raj Films.

Mohit Suri's love musical Aashiqui 2, the sequel to the 1990 film Aashiqui, gave Kapoor her breakout role in 2013. She played Aarohi Keshav Shirke, a small-town bar singer who becomes a successful playback singer with the support of a popular male vocalist (Aditya Roy Kapur). The film was a box office triumph, grossing $1.09 billion (US$14 million) worldwide. Anupama Chopra, a film critic, hailed Kapoor a "true triumph," adding that her "porcelain face has a haunting vulnerability." According to Vinayak Chakravorty of India Today, she "looks pretty but fails to add spark." Kapoor got multiple Best Actress nominations, including her first at the Filmfare Awards. She also appeared as the fiancée of Imran Khan's character in the romantic comedy Gori Tere Pyaar Mein that same year.

Kapoor then reteamed with Suri for the romantic thriller Ek Villain (2014), in which she made her singing debut with the song "Galliyan." The plot is around a hardened criminal (Sidharth Malhotra) whose terminally sick wife (Kapoor) is brutally murdered by a serial killer (Riteish Deshmukh). The film was widely believed to be a rip-off of the Korean film I Saw the Devil (2010), despite Suri's insistence that it was an original work. Raedita Tandon of Filmfare described the film as a "gritty, engaging thriller" and said that Kapoor was a revelation in it. The picture subsequently became a great commercial success, grossing over $1 billion (US$13 million) domestically. Vishal Bhardwaj's highly praised ensemble drama Haider, a reworking of William Shakespeare's Hamlet set amid the 1995 Kashmir crisis, was her second release that year. She played Arshia, an Ophelia-inspired journalist, opposite Shahid Kapoor and Tabu. Kusumita Das, writing for the Deccan Chronicle, appreciated Kapoor's attempt in expressing the different nuances of her character, noting that her performance was "surprisingly composed." In the same year, Kapoor appeared in Karan Johar's thriller Ungli, performing an item number called "Dance Basanti."

In 2015, Kapoor starred in ABCD 2, a sequel to the dance film ABCD: Any Body Can Dance (2013), as Vinita Sharma, a hip-hop dancer competing in an international hip-hop competition alongside her childhood friend Suresh Mukund (played by Varun Dhawan). She studied several dance forms from choreographers Prabhudeva and Remo D'Souza in preparation for her role. The picture, produced by Walt Disney Pictures, made 1.57 billion (US$20 million) globally, making it her most widely-seen film to that moment.

In the action thriller Baaghi, about a couple of rebellious lovers set against the backdrop of a martial arts school, Kapoor debuted in 2016 as Tiger Shroff's love interest. The job requires her to perform Kalaripayattu (a southern Indian martial technique). Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express believed her character was outmoded, but she played the romantic and action parts "well enough." The picture did well commercially, earning a total of 1.26 billion (US$16 million).

Struggles in my career (2016-2017)

The rock musical drama Rock On 2, a sequel to 2008's Rock On!!, was Kapoor's final film in 2016. She appeared in the film opposite Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, and Prachi Desai. She portrayed Jiah Sharma, an introverted singer and keyboardist who had a neglected relationship with her father. She prepared by reading novels in solitude and taking vocal lessons from vocalist Samantha Edwards. The Hindu's Namrata Joshi panned the film, calling Kapoor's acting "self-consciously meek and submissive." Rock On 2 failed to repay its 450 million (US$5.6 million) investment, resulting in a box office flop.

In 2017, Kapoor co-starred with Aditya Roy Kapur again in Shaad Ali's romantic comedy Ok Jaanu. The film was produced by Karan Johar under the umbrella of Dharma Productions and is a replica of Mani Ratnam's Tamil love movie O Kadhal Kanmani (2015). Kapoor next appeared in the romantic comedy Half Girlfriend, with Arjun Kapoor. It was based on Chetan Bhagat's novel of the same name and brought her back together with director Mohit Suri. Raja Sen of NDTV called the latter film "preposterously dimwitted romance" and criticized Kapoor as "shrill and insubstantial." Later same year, Kapoor starred in Apoorva Lakhia's Haseena Parkar, a biography about terrorist Dawood Ibrahim's sister, who operated her own crime ring. Kapoor played the title character alongside her brother Siddhanth Kapoor, who played Ibrahim. When the film was released, Anna M. M. Vetticad of Firstpost called Kapoor's performance "as bland as the screenplay," adding that "she tries to appear mature and menacing, but the effort shows too much." None of her 2017 films did well at the box office.

Commercial success (from 2018 to the present)

Kapoor next appeared in the horror comedy Stree (2018) alongside Rajkummar Rao. The film, based on the mythology of Nale Ba, cast her as a mysterious, unknown woman who falls in love with Rao's character. The film's feminist undertone was noted by critic Saibal Chatterjee, who deemed Kapoor to be "suitably icy as the enigmatic woman." According to Rajeev Masand, she "blends in nicely as the alluring out-of-towner with an air of mystery around her." Stree became her highest-grossing release to that moment, grossing over 1.7 billion (US$21 million). In the same year, Kapoor reteamed with Shahid Kapoor in Batti Gul Meter Chalu, a social crisis film highlighting rural India's energy problems. She consented to the project because of the social message in the script. The crew was not paid during filming since the studio, KriArj Entertainment, did not pay them. Production continued after Bhushan Kumar took over the project after a brief hiatus. Charu Thakur of India Today wrote that Kapoor "needs to go a long way in terms of her acting skills."

Kapoor had agreed to feature in Amole Gupte's biopic of badminton player Saina Nehwal, but she dropped out after a few days of filming due to a schedule difficulty. She started out 2019 as the main lady alongside Prabhas in Sujeeth's action film Saaho. It is one of the most costly Indian films ever made, at a budget of 3.5 billion rupees (US$44 million). Kapoor filmed her scenes in Telugu and Hindi. Mayank Shekhar called her role in Mid-Day "rather pale and pointless" in a negative review. The film's Telugu version did not fare well, while its Hindi version was a commercial triumph. Nitesh Tiwari's Chhichhore, a comedy-drama about college life co-starring Sushant Singh Rajput, was her next feature release. Mint's Udita Jhunjhunwala described it as a "lively homage to hostel life," adding that "despite a sketchy role, Kapoor delivers a moving and likeable performance." The picture became one of her most successful, grossing over $2 billion (US$25 million) globally.

Kapoor began the new decade by teaming with Dhawan in the dance film Street Dancer 3D (2020), which was dubbed a "compilation of indistinguishable performances" by Namrata Joshi. It didn't do well commercially. She later worked with Shroff again in the spiritual sequel Baaghi 3. It did poorly commercially because theaters were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After a three-year sabbatical caused by the epidemic that she characterized as "unexpected and forced," Kapoor acted with Ranbir Kapoor in Luv Ranjan's romance comedy Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (2023). Monika Rawal Kukreja of the Hindustan Times appreciated her styling and appearance, saying she "delivers a very controlled performance though she goes a bit overboard in the emotionally charged scenes." It became a decent commercial success.

Other work and media representation

In addition to appearing in films, Kapoor has sponsored philanthropic organizations, appeared in theater productions, and sang in them. She has also walked the runway for several fashion designers during Lakme Fashion Week and served as the cover model for several magazines. Kapoor is a brand ambassador for a number of companies, including Lakmé, Veet, Lipton, Marico's Hair & Care, and many more. According to Bollywood Hungama, she is "one of the most wanted names" in the advertising sector. Later, in March 2015, she collaborated with to develop her own women's clothing line, Imara. She invested in the beverage brand Shunya in 2021.

Kapoor has established herself as one of India's most popular superstars. In 2013, the Indian edition of FHM voted her fifth among the world's prettiest actresses in a poll. In 2014, she was ranked sixth, and the following year, she was ranked second in McAfee's list of the most-searched celebrities. According to Google Trends, Kapoor was one of the most-searched Indian actresses during 2014 and 2015. In 2014, named her one of the top ten Bollywood actresses. In 2014 and 2015, Kapoor was ranked seventh on The Times of India's list of the Most Desirable Women. In 2015, the Indian edition of the International Business Times ranked her fourth among top actresses, and ranked her fourth among top earners.

Forbes magazine named her one of the most successful Asians under the age of 30 in 2016, while the previous year, the Indian edition of the magazine included her in their annual Celebrity 100 list, with an annual salary of US$1.3 million. She was the third most followed Indian actress on Instagram that year, with over 10 million followers. Kapoor has also received praise for her fashion sense. Several media publications have commended her sense of style, and she has been considered by several fashion designers for runway walks. In 2016, she was named one of Bollywood's highest-paid actresses, earning a total of 50 million (US$630,000) each film. Eastern Eye named her one of the eight hottest ladies in Bollywood in 2018. Kapoor was crowned the Hottest Vegetarian by Peta India in 2020, and she became the third most followed Indian celebrity on Instagram. Shraddha appeared in the documentary Tails of Boo Boo & Cuddly Poo, which highlighted the condition of stray animals, in 2021.
