In an industry where celebrities are quick to say goodbye to friends and old mates on their way to the top, Shahid 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 Shri Ram came to Pune that he realized that Shahid had thrown a surprise birthday get together.
Sources reveal that Shahid had prior requested Vishal Bharadwaj, 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 side of Shahid.''
Infact 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.
Infact all his forthcoming films with Vishal Bharadwaj, Yashraj, Ken Ghosh, his dad Pankaj Kapoor are solo starrers.
