During the Teri Meri Kahaani trailer launch, there was so much love overflowing for Shahid Kapoor on my and MissMalini‘s Twitter timelines that we decided to ask you – why do you love Shahid so much? We promised we’d blog the 10 best responses and here we are! Have a look.
PS., lots more celeb love coming atcha soon! Let us know which celebrity you’d like us to pick for #CelebrityLoveFest next!
1) His Values
Yep, that’s one thing that comes out a lot from Shahid fans. He’s a vegetarian and teetotaler, and has managed to stay so even while working in an industry like Bollywood!
2) His Dancing
Need I say more after that performance?
3) His Acting
Love that he’s such a subtle actor and doesn’t go over-the-top. His performance in Kaminey was brilliant, where he transitioned between two different roles very well. Another perfect example is Jab We Met, where he quietly held his own near Kareena Kapoor, whose vibrant role could have easily taken over the film.
4) His Ability to Romance
No doubt Shahid works best in romance roles. Whether it’s the innocent love of Vivah or timeless love of Mausam, he sure can make a girl swoon! Look at Farah Khan blushing all over the place.
5) His Love for His Fans
I feel like he’s one of the celebs who really loves his fans – he wears a bracelet they’ve given him, still uses the coffee flask they sent him years ago (you can catch the teeniest glimpse of an engraving in the photo above), and always speaks very genuinely about them. In case you missed it, here’s Shahid’s message to his fans.
6) His Smile
Oh, hello. *melts*
7) His Eyes…
…and the magic in them! :) I just don’t like that he covers them up with sunglasses so much of the time!
8) His Passion for His Craft
Also great that he made his own way in Bollywood; even though his father (Pankaj Kapur) is an actor, he was never really a mainstream one, so Shahid had to break in on his own.
9) His Ability to be Both the Good Guy and the Bad Guy
This is one of my favourite things about him. He comes across as a perfectly good guy, the take-him-home-to-your-family type, but he has a bad boy streak to him that’s so appealing!
10) His Down-to-Earth Nature
I can vouch for this one, I’ve had three interactions with him – once on the phone, twice in person – and all three times he was nothing but sweet!
So even if you missed out #CelebrityLoveFest for Shahid, we can still have a little lovefest in the comments section! Keep telling us why you love him and I promise we’ll join in on the conversation (you couldn’t keep us away even if you tried).
