In an industry where celebrities are quick to say goodbye to friends and old mates on their way to the top, Shahid Kapoor is an exception. The actor made it a point to celebrate his childhood friend's birthday even while he was shooting recently. Shahid and Shriram are inseparable childhood friends since 18 years.
A crew member revealed, ''Shahid was shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's Kaminey in Pune. Came 11th August and it was Shahid's childhood friend Shriram's birthday, who lives in Bangalore. Shahid called him to Pune. Shahid just told Shriram that he had some urgent work and needed him to come to Pune. It was only when Shriram came to Pune that he realized that Shahid had thrown a surprise birthday get together.
Sources revealed that Shahid had requested Vishal Bharadwaj prior to the event, and packed up early so that he could spend more time with his childhood friend. Vishal and the entire crew of Kaminey were not only surprised but also moved to see this human Shahid.
In fact, Shahid has a lot to celebrate this year. He is the only hero to have 3 back to back solo hero hits in Vivaah, Jab We Met and Kismat Konnection, quite a commendable feat considering that multi-starrers are ruling the roost in Bollywood right now.
In fact, all his forthcoming films with Vishal Bharadwaj, Yash Raj, Ken Ghosh, his dad Pankaj Kapoor are solo starrers.
