If you haven’t guessed already, I love Shahid Kapoor. I love him, and his movies, and his philosophical tweets, and his eye-wrinkling grin. And while he has certainly come into his own as of late, and is donning an edgier look (and, let’s not forget, partying with bikini babes in Goa *wink*), I will probably always love him most for that “good guy” side of him. It’s a side that comes across in his films and characters a lot. So, while Shahid is no doubt having a crazy Goa birthday at the moment, I am sitting here YouTubing some of my favourite scenes with him, that just make me go aww. Want to see what I came up with? :)
I love the innocence of this film – I’ve always had a soft spot for Barjatya‘s ideals; they’re very reminiscent of old-school Bollywood. I love Shahid’s character in Vivah, which is what probably epitomized his “chocolate boy” image. This scene in particular, is full of “aww” moments; yeah, maybe it’s a bit too idealistic and has no place in the modern world, but you gotta appreciate the old-world innocence and charm of it.
I could spend forever and a day talking about how much I love Jab We Met. Firstly, if there’s one Bollywood character I’d want to marry, it would be Aditya from this film. This scene is just perfect; his exchange with Kareena is both, cute and hilarious.
Of course I’d include another Jab We Met scene! ;) Love how it comes full-circle and he’s the one comforting her in another hotel. His “Better lag raha hai?” and “Anytime” are the cutest things ever.
Teehee, gotta love his cute attempts at getting the girl. And like Vidya says in this scene, he’s “not so bad.” ;)
I’d pretend to be mad forever, if this was his attempt to apologize! Shahid does a DDLJ Shah Rukh in this film, all the while tossing in a dimple and wink. Excuse me while I melt.
I love the cutesy chemistry Shahid and Genelia share, and this scene in particular is too cute – from him edging her on to drive faster, to her “you want to do fraandship with me?”, to his sitting on the pole.
Shahid’s character goes through many stages in Mausam, but perhaps the one I like the most, is him as the Punjabi teenager. Love his antics during this stage of the film, and in particular this scene – he’s too funny.
