On completing 12 years in the film industry, Shahid thanked his fans for 'love and support' in a tweet:
12 years a slave of this most amazing world of films thank you one and all for the love and the support . Big love .? Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) May 9, 2015
Shahid started his career with romantic comedy films like Dil Mange More, Fool & Final and Chup Chup Ke, sprinkled with comedy thrillers like 36 China Town and family drama films like Vivaah.
After a series of flop films like Dil Bole Hadippa!, Chance Pe Dance, Paathshaala, Badmaash Company, Milenge Milenge and Mausam, Shahid reinvented his style and appeared in action-comedy films like Phata Poster Nikhla Hero and R... Rajkummar.
His last release, Haider was a hit and placed Shahid back on the map of leading Bollywood stars.
Shahid Kapoor is now looking forward to the release of Shandaar co-starring Alia Bhatt and Udta Punjab, also with Alia and his ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor Khan.
On the personal front, Shahid is dating a Delhi University student Mira Rajput, and the couple will reportedly get married in June this year.
