April 24, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor’s hot avatar in Badmaash Company caused frenzy among his fans. Especially when promos of the film showed Shahid getting up close and personal with the leggy Anushka Sharma. He was flooded with calls, text messages, emails and letters from girls, asking him to keep away from intimate scenes. His Kaminey act spurned nicknames like Charlie angels and Kaminis for his female fans. On another occasion, things got out of hand when Shahid was shooting Genelia D’Souza for Chance Pe Dance at Bandra Fort. A huge crowd gathered and a throng of females far outnumbered Genelia’s male admirers.
He was in a pickle while shooting on a beach in Thailand, where he was mobbed by a horde of girls demanding that he take of his shirt. The shy Sasha was mortified! A few weeks ago too Shahid’s harmless massage session at a hotel turned out to be one of those downright naughty ones that Bangkok is so famous for. His popularity only soars with every move he makes, be it the MJ tribute at the Filmfare Awards, his witty anchoring alongside SRK at the Screen Awards where he managed to hold his own or his numerous link ups. His muscled physique and knight-in-shining amour act on the sets have only alleviated his overall image. Way to go, Shahid!
Our BTown hunks have a legion of fans all over the world. Be it veterans like Aamir Khan and SRK, macho men like John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan or chocolate boys Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor, everyone has their own fan following. But no one enjoys female adulation quite like Shahid Kapoor! The man has a female fan following transcending age, religion and even countries. His cutesy looks, endearing attitude and mean moves on the dance floor have made him one the top stars today.
