Profession: Actress & Singer
Shraddha Kapoor was born on March 3, 1987 in India. From his father’s side, Kapoor is of Punjabi descent, while his mother is of Marathi and Konkani descent. She said she went through a masculine period as a child and described herself as having a strong attitude, so she deliberately quarreled with men. Among Kapoor’s family members, his father Shakti Kapoor and mother Shivangi Kapoor, older brother Siddhanth Kapoor, two aunts Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini Kolhapure are actresses of Indian Cinema. Coming from a playful family, Kapoor wanted to be an actress from an early age. Dressed in his parents’ clothes, she would rehearse movie dialogues and dance to Bollywood songs in front of the mirror. She also accompanied his father in various shooting locations during his childhood.
Kapoor studied at the jamnabai Narsee School, and at the age of 15, she moved to the American Bombay School, where he was schoolmates with actress Athiya Shetty and actor Tiger Shroff. Kapoor later enrolled in psychology at Boston University, but dropped out of school in his first year to star in his first movie after being seen on Facebook by Teen Patti’s producer Ambika Hinduja.
Kapoor made his acting debut with the 2010 drama Teen Patti alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley, and R. Madhavan. She played the role of a college girl. The film received generally negative reviews, although its performance was better received. Kapoor reunited with Suri for the thriller Ek Villain (2014) and sang the song “Galliyan”. The film tells the story of a notorious criminal (played by Sidharth Malhotra) who was brutally murdered by a serial killer, his terminally ill wife (played by Kapoor). Although Suri claims to be an original movie, the film was generally perceived as plagiarism from the Korean movie I Saw the Devil.
In 2015, Kapoor starred in the sequel to the dance movie ABCD: Any Body Can Dance, playing the hip-hop dancer who competed with his childhood friend Suresh Mukund (written by Varun Dhawan) at an international hip-hop competition. While preparing for the role, she learned different types of dance from choreographers Prabhudeva and Remo D’Souza. Produced by Walt Disney Pictures, the film earned ₹ 1.57 billion (US $ 22 million) worldwide and became the most watched movie to this point.
