Shahid Kapoor won rave reviews for his performance in Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider, a modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet, set amid the insurgency in Kashmir. Also in the year, he got married to Mira Rajput. Amid these highs came a big debacle towards the end of 2015: Shaandaar, jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap, Vikramaditya Motwane, Karan Johar and Madhu Mantena Varma, tanked miserably at the box office. The actor now has his hopes pinned on Udta Punjab and Bhardwaj's Rangoon, both scheduled for release in 2016.
Fast Fact: He underwent rigorous training for nearly a year to flaunt the perfect lean look for Kaminey.
