It may be more than just coincidence or yellow journalism that Shahid Kapoor is linked with every female co-star of his. From Vidya Balan to Priyanka Chopra everyone who’s worked with Shahid hasn’t been able to escape the actor’s charm. And now, the images of Shahid’s scintillating chemistry with the relative newbie Anushka Sharma in Badmaash Company have caught every movie buff’s attention.
But it’s also making many a female fan of Shahid jealous.
The buzz is that ever since the promos of the film went on air Shahid has been inundated with mails from his disgruntled female fans openly expressing their displeasure about Shahid’s no-holds-barred intimacy with Anushka. The girls obviously don’t approve of their favourite heartthrob cozying up with pretty young things on camera. We hear that one female fan went to the extent of finding Shahid’s phone number and calling him up to vent out her anger.
We don’t know how Shahid’s reacting to all this, but he must have by now accepted it as the extra baggage that comes with stardom.
That’s the problem with being a heartthrob. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
