What's common between JAB WE MET, VIVAH, ISHQ VISHK, DIL MAANGE MORE and CHUP CHUP KE? Each of them featured Shahid Kapoor as the solo lead and was successful at the box office, though at varied degree.

Now let's try cracking this one. FIDA, DEEWANE HUYE PAAGAL, VAAH! LIFE HO TO AISI, SHIKHAR, 36 CHINA TOWN and FOOL N FINAL - Well each of these were multistarrers with Fardeen Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Akshaye Khanna and Sunny Deol respectively giving him company. But how was the box office outcome of these films? With an exception of 36 CHINA TOWN and FOOL N FINAL to some extent, each of the remaining films was a flop at the box office.

So what's the tale does this trend tell?

Well, Shahid is clearly one of those select few actors in the industry who is more reliable when it comes to a solo release rather than being accepted in a multi starrer. Of course, it is all statistics at the end of the day since a film works on its merits and fails if there aren't many. However, in this superstitious place called Bollywood, it does boil down to facts and trends which clearly indicate the role in which Shahid is accepted most.

No wonder, a 'Konnection' of this kind makes one strongly believe that his KISMAT KONNECTION would be a safe film in the pipeline. With the promos of the film looking quite interesting, the title song by Pritam being a chartbuster already and Shahid-Vidya pairing hogging quite a few headlines, KISMAT KONNECTION only appears to be taking Shahid's 'konnection' with superstardom forward.

With director Aziz Mirza at the helm, there is nothing less expected from this frothy romantic comedy which is all set to hit the screens on 18th July.
