After a bad start, Shraddha Kapoor is back where she has always longed to be – in the limelight, enjoying the adulation that Aashiqui 2 has earned her. And there’s more. There’s a buzz that her miniscule role in Imran – Kareena starrer Gori Tere Pyaar Mein has been touched up to give her more screen time and a special song and dance number too. But the petite girl just giggles when we mention that.
The 24-year-old daughter of Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kolhapure insists she is enjoying the new heights with her feet firmly planted in the ground. The disaster that was her debut, Teen Patti, still haunts her. “I was devastated. Life came to a standstill. But my mom, dad and aunt (Padmini Kolhapure) sat me down and said, ‘Rise and shine. Brush this off. Don’t let one failure affect you so much. There will be light ahead. Get up and restart your dance classes and gym.” And that’s what she did.
At a time when almost all newcomers have the tacit or explicit endorsement of major productions houses or directors, Shradhha has had to deal with some heavy baggage – that of her father’s controversial legacy. Reason why she has been on her own all this while. “It hasn’t been easy,” she admits, elaborating, “I auditioned for Teen Patti alone. The audition for Luv Ka The End too was very exhaustive. I had to give a test for five scenes and two songs. I know the film was made for a niche audience but I don’t know the numbers the film got but More >
Though Shraddha Kapoor broke away from her YRF contract, she still considers them special
Shaheen Parkar (MID-DAY; April 29, 2013)
Shraddha Kapoor may be elated with the positive response to her latest film Aashiqui 2, a Mahesh Bhatt production, but she still considers Aditya Chopra as her mentor.
It may be recalled that the youngster was shown the door by the Yash Raj folk last year when she gave her nod to Aashiqui 2. She had a three- film deal with Yash Raj Films. After Luv Ka The End, Shraddha waited for her next film with YRF to take off. But with nothing happening, the youngster decided to take on director Mohit Suri’s offer.
Says Shraddha, “I waited for two years before I decided to move on. Adi Chopra is my mentor. I had a three- film deal with them and I am always available for them. It’s just that when Aashiqui 2 came my way, I could not refuse it as I always wanted to work with Mohit.”
Shakti Kapoor’s daughter crosses over to the Bhatt camp, will star in ‘Aashiqui’ sequel
Kunal M Shah (MID-DAY; June 16, 2012)
Shraddha Kapoor will soon be seen in the sequel of Mahesh Bhatt’s Aashiqui opposite Aditya Roy Kapoor. However the film has come at a huge price for the youngster. Shakti Kapoor’s daughter, who was managed by YRF Talent, has been shown the door by Yash and Aditya Chopra.
A source informs, “Shraddha Kapoor had a three film deal with Yash Raj Films. She featured in Luv Ka The End which, bombed at the box office more than a year back and after that Shraddha has been waiting for her next film. After nearly a wait of one year and no films, Shraddha got a call from Mahesh Bhatt’s production house and she was offered Aashiqui 2.
Around the same time, YRF offered her Aurangzeb opposite Arjun Kapoor, which also required the same dates. Shraddha did not commit to doing Auragzeb and went ahead and signed Aashiqui 2 without taking the consent from her production company. When the officials at YRF learnt about her deal outside, they were extremely annoyed and asked her to leave.”
The source further said, “Shraddha had to make a choice. It had been two years and now finally they offered her Aurangzeb opposite Arjun Kapoor. But she had made up her mind and went ahead and signed Aashiqui making it clear that she no longer wanted to be a part of YRF.”
Although Shraddha remained unavailable for comment, the spokesperson of YRF said, “Shraddha was not a part of More >
Remember Shraddha Kapoor? Actor Shakti Kapoor’s daughter, who was last seen in Y-Films’ Luv Ka The End, has bagged what could easily be called her biggest film to date, Aashiqui 2. On Tuesday, the actor signed the deal with Vishesh Films.
Shraddha Kapoor made her acting debut in Teen Patti alongside Amitabh Bachchan, R Madhavan and Raima Sen.
“Like all Bhatt films, Shraddha has a sensual and interesting role in the sequel. It will put her in a different league altogether,” says an insider from the production house. Shraddha confirms: “Yes, I am the new Aashiqui girl.”
Shraddha made her Bollywood debut in 2010 with Teen Patti alongside Amitabh Bachchan. Besides Shraddha, the sequel will star Aditya Roy Kapoor, who is best known for his work in films like Guzaarish (2010) and Action Replayy (2010).
The Ishaqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor is all set to be paired opposite Shakti Kapoor’s daughter, and will essay two different characters in his next film.
After winning generous accolades for Ishaqzaade, the speculations about his next big screen outing had already begun. The actor is now all set to play a double role in Atul Sabharwal’s directorial debut Aurangzeb, which is a part of his three-film deal with Yash Raj Films. Initially, the rumours doing the rounds were that Arjun and Parineeti would come together again, but apparently that isn’t the case.
He has been paired with Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha Kapoor who was last seen in Bumpy’s Luv Ka The End. This news really came as a big surprise to us, especially to those who loved the crackling chemistry between Arjun and Parineeti in Ishaqzaade, and were eagerly waiting to see them together again. Wethinks there is nothing wrong with the fresh pairing, but the real question is, will Arjun be able to pull off a double role?

FAST FIVE took a strong lead as it embarked on a 70% opening, on an average, across India on Friday. The plexes as well as single screens responded very well to the film and that helped this film overpower its Hindi competitors from the very first show onwards … HAUNTED, released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions, opened very well in 3D, garnering 60% to 70% start, while 2D opened to 30% occupancy. Released extensively — approx. 1044 sites [all three versions combined] — the combined occupancy of HAUNTED was in 45% to 55% range. Reliance Entertainment is hopeful that the Friday numbers will be impressive, despite the fact that it stars new faces… LUV KA THE END, surprisingly, didn’t embark on a strong start. A month ago, F.A.L.T.U. had opened to packed houses and LUV KA THE END was expected to follow in its footsteps, at least at big city plexes. But the morning and noon shows were in 10% to 20% range. Let’s hope the youth takes it further from Friday evening onwards.
Shakti Kapoor’s daughter Shraddha tackles all those tricky questions about the infamous sting operation
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; May 06, 2011)
Shraddha, Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kolhapure’s 22-year-old daughter is trying to find a foothold in the big bad world of movies.
With her debut film Teen Patti bombing at the box office, the girl is nervous about her next Luv Ka The End. “Yup, my first film didn’t do well.
And I am nervous about my next, but only when someone asks me about it. You know what, by and large, I am a very positive person,” she quips.
Perhaps, it was her positive attitude that helped Shraddha get over the casting couch scandal her father got involved in. Way back in 2005, Shakti Kapoor in a sting operation was seen propositioning the undercover reporter who posed as an aspiring actress.
He even mentioned names of established actresses and filmmakers, claiming that the casting couch was the unsaid norm in Bollywood. His little daughter has however let bygones be. “It happens to the best, yaar. Life is full of ups and downs.
Eventually everyone comes out of it. If success is temporary, so is failure,” says Shraddha.
But did she have to go through the casting couch as well? “Thankfully, I have never had an indecent proposal. It helps to have parents who have the know-how of the industry,” quips the star child.
Being a star child also helps in bagging good projects, for sure. Says the girl who still has two films to with Yash Raj More >

I can’t help but recall an interesting conversation with Ashish Patil [the enterprising head of Y-Films] soon after Y-Films was formally launched. He opined that India is the world’s youngest country, with 70% of the population below the age of 35 and explained why Y-Films had decided to target this segment of movie-going audience. It works fine — you cater to an audience that loves to hang out at cineplexes. Plus, as a production house, you juice a big business opportunity. Their first movie — LUV KA THE END — is now in theatres, for audience consumption.
Gone are the days when a woman, spurned by the man of her dreams, would sulk in a corner, shed tears of sorrow and spend the rest of her life in his memory. Times have changed. The Gen X, especially those living in a metropolis, thinks differently. Most relationships begin and end at an alarming rate and before you realize what went wrong between two individuals, chances are they would’ve moved on to ‘greener pastures’ [read new partners]. The spurned girl is not a bechaari anymore.Write your own movie review of Luv Ka The End
In LUV KA THE END, the 18-year-old seeks revenge, when she realizes that her boyfriend has a hidden agenda.

Given the brand new star cast of Y-Films’ LUV KA THE END, one assumed that the youth wing of Yash Raj would not release the film internationally, but the company, headed by the enterprising Ashish Patil, is gung ho about the product and has taken the decision to release the film in theatres internationally.
While the film will have a fairly extensive release in U.A.E., Yash Raj will release the film [limited screens] in U.S.A., South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Fiji, Mauritius and Indonesia. Generally, non-star cast films or those starring new names are released directly on DVD, but this move should encourage film-makers making films with new faces to explore international avenues as well [theatrically].
