SHAHID IN NEWS
Sorry Deepika and Ranveer, Mira and Shahid are quite possibly the most romantic couple in B-town. Ever since these two got hitched a year ago, they seem to be simply inseparable. From gymming together to constantly going out on dates, these two have always given us some crazy relationship goals. And today on the occasion of their first wedding anniversary, Sasha posted an adorable kissing selfie of him and his wife Mira. He captioned it with the line - Happy first anniversary my love. @mira.kapoor you are my sunshine. You have to admit, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput look simply adorable together. Added to that this lovely couple will soon become proud parents too. And we have no doubt in our minds that just as Shahid Kapoor seems to be the best husband around, he will also turn out to be the best daddy in B-town!
Shahid Kapoor who is busy promoting his upcoming film Udta Punjab with other co stars has not forgotten his duty as a father. Shahid has already taken up the responsibilities and have started with the remodeling of his house in Juhu to welcome the new member of the family. Shahid Kapoor's house which was former known as the bachelor's den and also was designed to suit his eclectic tastes has gone through a big change as he got married. The big master bedroom became the star couple domain, the huge basement space which was the party area earlier now became Shahid's work area and he started having his meetings and story sessions there. The superstar admits that a special room is being made for the baby and the Kapoor's are all excited to welcome the new born. And the powder room will soon be converted into a proper shower-cum-toilet because, in all likelihood, guests will be coming to the house, once the baby arrives. And guess who told Shahid right from the start to be prepared for all these things, none other then his father Pankaj Kapur. Shahid said “I should have listened to dad from the start, "After all, he is more worldly-wise than I am."
Sasha is one star who amazingly manages to transform himself to fit any role. After his amazing transformation in Haider, the actor has been undergoing vigorous training to fit the character of a soldier in Rangoon. We hear that Shahid has even undergone proper military training to fit into the role. However, this latest still from the film proves just how much Shahid has gotten into character. Sporting a beard and dusty green bandana, Shahid Kapoor looks almost unrecognizable as the lovable chocolate boy we know him to be. Starring Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon is turning out to be a rather special treat for cinephiles. What do you think of Sasha’s look in the film?

Shahid Kapoor is one star who constantly manages to woo the critics but hasn’t really proved to be the most successful actor at the box office. His last film Shaandaar failed to be a major success, we feel that Udta Punjab and Rangoon could prove to be excellent movies. However, even they won’t reach the blockbuster level of a Khan movie thanks to their niche appeal. But now we hear that Sasha has been approached for the Hindi remake of SS Rajamouli’s hugely successful movie Magadheera. Talking about the news, Shahid revealed that he has yet to give his final nod to the movie but he has definitely been approached for the role. We are definitely expecting great things from Shahid in the days to come and a movie like Magadheera could be just the mainstrem push Shahid needs to achieve absolute superstardom. What do you think guys?
A Vishal Bhardwaj movie is always a special affair but Rangoon seems especially unique. Not only does it feature an amazing stellar cast of superior actors like Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut but even the backdrop of World War 2 has us very intrigued. Added to that, we even managed to catch a glimpse of Saif’s amazing look in the movie when the star turned up for Masaba Gupta’s wedding celebrations. Sporting a pencil thin mustache and oiled hair, our Nawab looks nothing less than a Hollywood star from the classic black and white days. We hear that Shahid will play the role of an INA soldier in the film while Kangana will be a broadway dancer. The whole scenario sounds a lot like what Anurag Kashyap attempted with Bombay Velvet even if Bhardwaj is aiming for an earlier era. Let’s hope he has more success with the project than Kashyap did!
