While getting a break in Bollywood is easier for some (say the star kids), its definitely not a smooth ride there after. That’s what Shraddha Kapoor is realising.
Here last few releases have failed at the box office – “OK Jaanu”, “Half Girlfriend” and “Haseena Parkar”. But the actress (daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor) is not getting worked up about it. Instead she gives us a philosophical reply when asked about the failure, says ups and downs are part of life.
“I think that my initial films did very very well, so anything that didn’t match up to that will be viewed as falling short. I would love to say that the kind of love I still have received despite my movies doing well or not well is priceless,” Shraddha said.
Shraddha Kapoor Rejects Film Offer of Dh5million (rs.9 Crore), Goes for Holiday With Family Instead
Even a couple of few hit films in Bollywood can pave the path for several new good films from big banners, and also earn you some lucrative deals. And even though the youngsters in the film industry are aware of this rule, surprisingly, they’re also mentally strong to walk the talk.
Many wouldn’t expect a newcomer (sort of) to reject a Dh. 5million film offer (almost 9 crore rupees) when it comes their way. But that’s what Bollywood’s Shraddha Kapoor, basking in the glory of her recent film successes, did.
Shraddha Kapoor recently rejected a film offer because she wasn’t happy with the script and the role offered, although the money was good. Instead she coolly went on a holiday with her parents and brother.
“I have always been pampered by my father (Shakti Kapoor). He has been taking care of all my needs. He also keeps calling to ask if I have eaten well, etc. I love sweets and he has always taken care of that. Now we went on a short family holiday to celebrate the success of our films. I want to reach a situation where I can take them on a holiday and I want enough money for that through the right films only,” says Kapoor.
Shraddha Kapoor is Bollywood baddie Shakti kapoor’s daughter. “I have my genes from my dad Shakti Kapoor and aunt Padmini Kolhapure. I have learnt a lot from them. My father does advice me. He appreciates me when he seems me in good films and turns critic for the bad performances or the movies. He has taught me a lot about what is right or wrong,” says the actress.
“Sun Raha Hai Na Tu” from Aashiqui 2
Many feel that Shraddha began her Bollywood journey with “Aashiqui 2” but that’s not true.
Shraddha Kapoor started her career in Bollywood with a couple of flop films – ‘Teen Patti’ co starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley, followed by Yash Raj Films’ ‘Luv ka The End’. However, things changed around for Shraddha with ‘Aashiqui 2’; later she gave more hits – ‘Ek Villain’, ‘Haider’ ‘ABCD 2’, “Haider” and “Baaghi”.
Shraddha doesn’t regret doing “Haseena Parkar”, which was based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. She is quite excited about multi-lingual action film “Saaho”, which also stars Prabhas (Baahubali star).
