    Shraddha Kapoor, who turned 31 today, is surely one of those people that are truly blessed with good genes. Because she just doesn't seem to age at all. Looking back at her life, Shraddha Kapoor has grown from being just a celebrity kid to becoming one of film critics' favourite actresses. From naive Aparna in Teen Patti to bold Haseena Parkar, Shraddha has progressed in leaps and bound. Let's take a look at her journey so far.

    Shraddha, the daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kolhapure, was born in Mumbai. She completed her schooling from Jamnabai Narsee School and later joined the American School of Bombay. Shraddha's family includes many talented actors including her two aunts Padmini and Tejaswini Kolhapure as well as older brother Siddhanth Kapoor.

    She has featured in 14 films, so far, and has an amazing line-up of projects, including a one with Telugu actor Prabhas, of Baahubali fame. Shraddha didn't have a winning start in her Bollywood career.

    Her debut film Teen Patti 2010 starring Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley and R Madhavan failed to create a mark at the box office. She was first spotted by producer Ambika Hinduja on Facebook, who then cast her in his 2010 film Teen Patti. Shradhha was appreciated for her role of a college girl in the film and also won a Filmfare nomination for Best Female Debut.

    In 2011, Shraddha played the female lead in Luv Ka The End, a film inspired by the Hollywood movie John Tucker Must Die. The film failed to succeed at the box office but Shraddha was much appreciated by the critics.

    Shraddha took Bollywood by storm with Mohit Suri's romantic film Aashiqui 2 in 2013, a sequel of sorts to the 1990 blockbuster hit Aashiqui. History repeated itself and Aashiqui 2 was a super hit.

    Shraddha received several nominations in the Best Actress category, including one at the Filmfare Awards for her role of a small-town singer Aarohi Keshav Shirke, who rises to be a successful playback singer in the film industry. Film critic Anupama Chopra called Shraddha a "real triumph".

    She was also seen in a special appearance in Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan's Gori Tere Pyaar Mein the same year. Shraddha played the role of Imran's fiancee in the film.

  7. 07

    Shraddha reunited with director Mohit Suri for Ek Villain in 2014. She played actor Sidharth Malhotra's terminally-ill wife, murdered by a serial killer in the film. Ek Villain won both commercial success and critical acclaim. Shraddha also made her singing debut with song Galliyan from Ek Villain, for which she won the 'Best Celebrity Singer' GiMA award.

  8. 08

    She was next seen as a journalist in director Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider, an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. Shraddha played the female lead opposite actor Shahid Kapoor in the film. Shraddha was hailed by the critics for convincingly portraying varied nuances of her character in the film.

    Shraddha was also seen grooving to the item number Dance Basanti in Kangana Ranaut and Emraan Hashmi's Ungli in 2014.

    Shradhha next starred in Remo D'Souza's dance film ABCD 2, the sequel to 2013's ABCD: Any Body Can Dance. She performed various dance forms like B-boying and hip-hop in the film with actor Varun Dhawan.

  11. 11

    In 2016, Sharddha appeared in two films Baaghi with Tiger Shroff and Rock On 2 with Farhan Akhtar, Arjun Rampal and Purab Kohli. These films did mediocre business.

  12. 12

    Next Shraddha reunited with her Aashiqui 2 co-star Aditya Roy Kapur for Shaad Ali-directed OK Jaanu, a remake of Mani Rathnam's hit Tamil film OK Kanmani. Ok Jaanu also had a lukewarm run at the box office.

  13. 13

    She was last seen in 2017's films Haseena: The Queen of Mumbai and Mohit Suri's Half Girlfriend

  14. 14

    Shraddha is currently busy shooting for her forthcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu, in the lap of scenic beauty in and around Uttarakhand. The film also stars Shahid Kapoor. Shraddha also has Stree opposite Rajkummar Rao.

    She'll be also seen in a biopic based on the life and struggle of badminton player Saina Nehwal.
