Shahid Kapoor is one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood today. He went through a dry spell, but the Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial Kabir Singh was the real game-changer in his career. But did you know he was rejected in as many as 100 films during his early days? Scroll below for all the details!

Shasha is the son of veteran star Pankaj Kapur. While many might think he must have gotten a lot of referrals and would have made it easily as a star kid, that was not the case. His journey was quite challenging as many remained unaware of his family background for a long time.

Back in 2016, the Jersey actor revealed he was rejected in as many as 100 auditions during his early days in Bollywood. In a conversation with Hindustan Times, Shahid Kapoor shared, “Everyone thinks that he is Pankaj Kapur’s son, so isko toh break mil gaya hoga (He must have got a break). But I have been rejected from 100 auditions. Sometimes, I didn’t have money to eat food or to even go to the auditions. I have lived that life, and I don’t like talking about it. But that is my reality.”

Shahid Kapoor made his Bollywood debut in 2003 with Ishq Vishk, a sleeper hit at the box office. He’s completed over two decades in Bollywood, and it’s been one hell of a successful journey!
