The latest buzz in the B-town is that Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor are all set to turn hosts for the prestigious IIFA awards this year. We have an inside khabar that the two dashing actors will host the show in the scenic location of Bali in South East Asia. Though the organisers have not confirmed the news, our well-placed sources have let us on to these details. It sure would be interesting to see the bevy of our favourite Bollywood stars to descend down at the scenic international locale of Bali.

His movie Padmaavat has made record breaking business at the box office, his highest. Things are definitely looking up for him as he is all set to expand his family and entertain us with interesting movies like Batti Gul Meter Chalu soon.

The cruel Sultan Alauddin Khilji is here, Ranveer Singh’s look from Padmavati out!

As we near 1 December 2017, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is just increasing the hype surrounding the film. The film which stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh has already created a huge buzz around the film and it just doesn’t seem to die down. After making us meet Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini and Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh, makers today released the most awaited look of the film, Ranveer Singh as the cruel ruler Sultan Alauddin Khilji.

After the arrival of the King and Queen of Chittor, it was time for the evil ruler to arrive and we must tell you he arrived in style today.

Ranveer Singh had announced yesterday that his look from Padmavati will be out this morning. Ranveer had tweeted,

And while we couldn’t get enough of the first look, the second look left us mesmerised. 

Ranveer rocks the cruel Khilji look to perfection. The expression, the look the attire everything steals the show. 
It is also the first time that more than the protagonist’s look, the antagonist look was mostly awaited. 
Deepika Padukone already cast her spell on us as Rani Padmini. 

While Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh arrived in all the royalty too. 

But we really think that Ranveer Singh as Aladdin Khilji won our heart. 
Now that we have finally met the lead star cast of the film we cannot wait for the teaser to release. 
Who managed to impress you with their look, was it Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh or Ranveer Singh as Aladdin Khilji? Do let us know in the comment section below.

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor will play King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband Maharawal Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much-awaited period drama ‘Padmavati’. The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.

Shahid Kapoor’s look in Sanjay Leela Bhanasali’s ‘Padmavati’ is out and the 36-year-old Bollywood actor is killing us with his fierce and royal look. Shahid will play King of Chittor and Rani Padmini’s husband Maharawal Ratan Singh in the much-awaited period drama.

The makers of ‘Padmavati’ took to Twitter on Monday morning to unveil Shahid’s look. A post on the film’s official Twitter handle read, “महारावल रतन सिंह. साहस, सामर्थ्य और सम्मान का प्रतीक. #Padmavati #MaharawalRatanSingh @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @RanveerOfficial.”

Talking about his look in ‘Padmavati’, Shahid Kapoor had said, “When you are playing a King, you need to have a certain personality. At that time, the people used to not be very skinny and lean, so you need to have a manly personality. Basically for that, and to carry those outfits also, Sanjay sir wants me to be a little muscular and a little full. But I will be gaining weight in terms of muscle and not in terms of fat. This is because I am playing the character of a warrior. The Rajput kings had very strong personalities.”

While Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Goliyon ki Rasleela, Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastaani, this is the first collaboration of Shahid Kapoor and Bhansali.

And now that we have witnessed the spellbinding looks of Deepika and Shahid, we are even more impatient for Ranveer Singh’s look in the film. While Deepika Padukone steps into the shoes of Rani Padmavati, her rumoured beau Ranveer Singh essays the role of Alauddin Khilji. The film is slated to hit the theaters on December 1.

#ShahidKiShaadi to #ShahidKiMovie: Here’s why 2015 is a Shaandaar year for Shahid Kapoor

Wedged between his professional commitments,  the actor cooked up a storm in 2015 with the news of his marriage to a much-younger Mira Rajput. Be it films or his personal life,  2015 saw the re-rise of Shahid Kapoor.

From crazy selfies to mind-boggling promotions to crackling chemistry, Bollywood’s newest and cutest on-screen jodi Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have nailed the art of hogging limelight. Ever since the first picture of the two shooting for Shaandaar in London went viral last year, Shahid and Alia or ‘Shalia’, as their fans call them, have become one of the most popular on-screen couples. If Alia’s vivacity has filled every frame, Shahid’s suave and dapper avatar has made many girls go weak in the knees.

Touted to be one of the most-anticipated films of the year, Shaandaar claims to be a chatpata potpourri of romance and comedy. Director Vikas Bahl’s hero, Jaginder Joginder (Shahid Kapoor), a wedding planner by day and an insomniac by night, is a perfect blend of chocolate-boy looks and electrifying energy, who falls in his love with an even-crazier Alia (Alia Bhatt). And thus begins the Shaandaar journey of their romance.

The stage is set, the tickets are booked and the theatres will soon begin to roll the first roll of the film. After incessant promotions and mind-blowing interactions, a Shaandaar opening is expected from Shahid’s film.



But this wasn’t the case with the actor till Haider hit the screens last year. After a barrage of flops in the last four years, Shahid’s acting career got a fresh lease of life with Vishal Bhardwaj’s modern-day spin on William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The innumerable accolades and the on-screen image makeover gave Shahid’s career the right push, and since then, there has been no looking back for this 34-year-old.

From big banners to great directors, Shahid has his plate full with meaty roles. Be it playing an insomniac in Shaandaar or an army officer in Rangoon, the Haider actor has been flooded with interesting offers. Unlike his previous mindless masala entertainers, his forthcoming projects boast of intriguing storylines. While Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab is based on drug abuse in Punjab, on the other hand, Vishal’s Rangoon is a period drama set in the 40s.

Taking a cue from his contemporaries, the actor has been experimenting with his looks to get into the skin of the character. He has grown his hair for Udta Punjab, not trimmed his beard for Rangoon, and is unwilling to leave any stone unturned to fit the roles that he will portray on 70mm.

Shahid isn’t just a dedicated actor. His celebrity status also drew him to the small tube. His dhamakedaar stint as a judge on dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Reloaded got him great reviews. Shahid, who began his career as a background dancer in Shiamak Davar troupe, became one of the prominent faces of small screens with his TV debut this year. His camaraderie with co-judge Karan Johar kept many entertained, and his sincerity as an insistent taskmaster earned him respect from contestants. Stepping into the shoes Madhuri Dixit wasn’t an easy task for the Mausam actor, but he did manage to pull it off with elan.


Wedged between his professional commitments, be it TV or films, the actor cooked up a storm in 2015 with the news of his marriage to a much-younger Mira Rajput. Her non-celebrity status and the evident age gap became the talk of the town ever since the rumours of their wedding started doing the rounds in March this year. Impervious to all the talk, Shahid tied the knot with Mira on July 7. #ShahidKiShaadi turned out to be one of the most-talked-about events in Bollywood this year.

The usually-invisible Shahid was suddenly all over the place. Be it headlines or the big screen or social media, the R…Rajkumar actor took everything by storm. The narcissist in Shahid became all jumpy at the mention of Instagram. From shirtless selfies to adorable pics with his “baby wife”, Shahid became a hit on the photo-blogging site, and his fan-following has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few months. The drastic change in his personality was much appreciated by his fans, and like a phoenix, he was born yet again in Bollywood.

Put in one sentence, 2015 saw the re-rise of Shahid Kapoor. Welcome back Shahid.
