Before her big Bollywood break with 'Aashiqui 2'—alongside Aditya Roy Kapoor—Shraddha struggled to make a name in the industry. It was film by film that she paved the way to super stardom, becoming one of the top actor's of her time.
Besides wowing us with her promising performance on screen, the celebrity enjoys a whooping fan following—with nearly 60 million followers on Instagram! However, despite being a celebrated name in the industry who has proven herself time and again, she remains grounded and leads a simple lifestyle. From a girl next door to hello hottie, we take you down memory lane to revisit Shraddha's initial years, and the wonder woman she has grown into today.
Shraddha Kapoor was born and raised in Mumbai to Punjabi father Shakti Kapoor and Marathi mother Shivangi Kolhapure. In an interview she revealed that she went through a tomboyish phase as a child, and described herself as having a strong attitude because of which she was deliberately picking fights with boys. Coming from a film family—with her father and aunt acting in several Bollywood films—she was always exposed to the glitz and glamour of the fraternity.
