The Haider actor turns 34 today and the actor unlike every year will have a working birthday this year. But there’s something special about being Sasha!

Shahid Kapoor has definitely come a long way. And yes, there are perks of being Shahid!. In a career spanning over a decade, the actor has managed to create a brand for himself. And here’s why we think that this birthday boy can celebrate just being himself!

Forever 21: What is special is that the actor cannot be put into any bracket. He has been in a race with Hrithik Roshan in the beginning of his career, was even pitted against Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh and is a threat to the current crop of actors like Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. That’s definitely an upside to being Shahid Kapoor besides all this.

Arm candy: He has dated the who’s who of Bollywood. From Kareena Kapoor to Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan to Bipasha Basu. SK is definitely managed to woo the pretiest B-town ladies. And even his pairing with Alia Bhatt for Shaandar is garnering quite a lot of attention. Looks like beauties just get mesmerised by this Kapoor lad’s boyish charm.

Dance dance baby: He’s one helluva dancer and even Prabhu Dheva and Hrithik Roshan can vouch for it. Shaimak Davar’s student definitely managed to get Bollywood and fans grooving every time he showed off those perfect moves on 70mm!

School of actors: When Pankaj Kapoor is your father do you really need to visit an acting or attend special courses for body language? He’s a bible in acting! That’s not it the family is filled with talent be it mother Neelima Azeem or then Supriya Pathak or even younger sibling Ishaan Pathak.

Vishal Bharadwaj on your side:When you have a versatile director like Bharadwaj, one can only hope to reinvent himself each time. Haider gave Shahid his much needed career revamp and recognition. And we’re sure that it will remain one of his career bests for a lifetime.
