Often, the industry and media can be miles away from the on-ground realities and it’s no wonder that several times, we fail to gauge the mood of the people for a particular film or celeb. For instance, while listing out the names of prominent actresses, we often name only Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone. Though these two are definitely the female stars of the industry, there’s also Shraddha Kapoor, who has a tremendous fan following and is a star in her own right.
Happy Birthday Shraddha Kapoor: She is the third MOST FOLLOWED Indian on Instagram; Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar to LARGELY benefit thanks to her casting
The actress, who celebrates her birthday today, has a whopping 77.8 million followers, and counting, on Instagram. This makes her the third most followed Indian personality on Instagram, after cricketer Virat Kohli with 238 million followers and Priyanka Chopra with 85.3 million followers.
Frankly, it’s no surprise that she is so popular. She was a part of some popular and memorable films like Aashiqui 2 (2013), Ek Villain (2014), ABCD – Any Body Can Dance – 2 (2015), Baaghi (2016), Half Girlfriend (2017), Stree (2018), Saaho (2019) etc. She started her career with films like Teen Patti (2010) and Luv Ka The End (2011) and with Aashiqui 2, she went on another level. Songs play an important play in any actors’ career and in that regard; she has been a part of several hits such as the songs of Aashiqui 2 or ‘Galiyan’, ‘Sun Saathiya’, ‘Cham Cham’, ‘Main Phir Bhi Tumko Chahungi’, ‘Milegi Milegi’, ‘Psycho Saiyaan’, etc.
Another strong factor of Shraddha Kapoor is her youthful appeal. She has a fan base among males and females of all age groups. She can easily pass on as a girl next door or a bubbly cute sass. And with her upcoming release Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, she proves that she can also convincingly play the role of a hot bombshell. Her bikini look grabbed everyone’s eyeballs and only got praise. This film too has some chartbuster songs and has only boosted her popularity and appeal. In fact, check out the comments under the ‘Show Me The Thumka’ song and you’ll be amazed to see how fans are swooning over Shraddha Kapoor’s hot, desi look.
Hence, it’s no surprise that Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar is a ‘garam’ film in the trade not just due to Ranbir Kapoor’s presence but also due to the casting of Shraddha. She has delivered five Rs. 100 crore grossers till now. Stree collecting Rs. 129.90 crores happened majorly due to her as she was a bigger name in the film. She also created history in 2019 as Saaho and Chhichhore came back to back and both were smash hits. Her last release, Baaghi 3 (2020), would have also crossed the Rs. 100 crore mark had the pandemic not halted its theatrical run.
And with this, we come to a significant aspect. Her last release arrived in cinemas exactly three years ago. Though she was away from the limelight for so long, her popularity never dwindled and this truly is a feat. Her being away from the big screen has only proved advantageous, just like it happened in the case of Shah Rukh Khan in Pathaan. There’s a heavy demand to see Shraddha Kapoor on screen and this will benefit Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar. She was indeed seen in ‘Thumkeshwari’ in Bhediya (2022) but the song was not a part of the final cut. Many also felt that had she appeared in the film as ‘Stree’, Bhediya would have collected more.
It’s crucial that the birthday girl Shraddha Kapoor signs the correct films from here on – films that connect with the masses and which justify her presence. If she gets it right, nothing can stop her from becoming one of the greatest stars of this country a few years from now!
