Shahid Kapoor is a famous Bollywood actor known for his great acting skills. Initially recognised for portraying romantic roles, he has taken part in action films and thrillers. Shahid has also been a recipient of several accolades, including three Filmfare Awards.
He made his film debut in 2003 with a leading role in the romantic comedy film Ishq Vishk, a superhit movie that earned him a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. Along with Shahid, Amrita Rao, Vishal Malhotra, and Shenaz Treasurywala were also seen in the film.
The film’s story is about Rajiv (Shahid) and Payal (Amrita) who are friends since childhood. While Payal is in love with Rajiv, it takes him a bit longer to return her feelings. Ishq Vishk became a success and launched both Shahid Kapoor’s and Amrita Rao’s career.
Shenaz Treasury revealed the first time Shahid Kapoor travelled by air. She said that it was when they were travelling to the South African capital Cape Town to shoot Ishq Vishk.
In an interview with Indian Express, Shenaz said, “I see Shahid sometimes at the gym. He’s a really sweet guy. We were good friends at that time. Although now we’re not really in touch. He used to tell me that I got to be something more than a VJ. I guess I wasn’t that serious about it. I had this regular job at MTV which I really enjoyed and I didn’t want to leave that for Bollywood. I had a good equation with Shahid. I had been on camera, he hadn’t. he was completely fresh to this. I guess when we went to Cape Town, that was the first time he was on a plane. It was fun. We really got along.”
Recalling her first day on the sets of the film, Shenaz said, “The first day on set was at Sophia College. We were shooting the song Kaun Hai Woh. I remember Ken put a lot of stress on me. He liked me as an actor but he thought I was too fat, which is true…They decided to do a slow-motion scene with me lip-syncing but no one instructed me how that is to be done. I remember doing that with a blow in my hair but not knowing how to do that slow motion.”
