Vidya Balan took the initiative and broke the ice with Shahid Kapur on the first day of the film's shoot. Thereon, the konnection between them only got stronger.

Shahid was nursing a broken heart when he began shooting in Toronto for Aziz Mirza's film Kismat Konnection . It was the charming presence of Vidya that brought that dimpled smile back on Shahid's face.


Shahid and Vidya did not know each other before beginning to shoot 'Kismat Konnection' in Toronto. On the first day of the shoot, Shahid took a chair in a corner of the set, while Vidya fished out her I-Pod and began listening to music. To the duo's surprise the very first scene Aziz Mirza decided to shoot was a slightly romantic one and required the two stars to get familiar beforehand.

It was Vidya who took the initiative, went over to the shy Shahid and said something that brought a broad smile on his face. Vidya said: "Can I have your autograph, Shahid?" While Shahid was visibly embarrassed by Vidya's request, he was also amused by it.

This gesture of Vidya brought Shahid out from his shell. The two got talking and soon were comfortable with each other. And guess what? They shot their first scene in a single take.


Now that friendship was forged between them, Shahid decided to show another side of his to Vidya, who thought him to be a serious, shy person (before the following incident). While getting to know her, Shahid discovered that Vidya is afraid of ghosts. So he decided to go for the jugular and play a spooky prank on Vidya.

One night, Shahid put on a scary mask, went to Vidya's hotel room and knocked on the door. A few unitmembers were watching from the corners to see Vidya's reaction. But it was Shahid who got spooked when Vidya's mother (who was staying in the same suite) opened the door. Shahid tried to flee the scene, but Vidya's mom thought him to be a thief and held on tightly to him. That's when Shahid took off his mask and quite embarrassingly told Vidya's mom that he was only trying to play a prank on Vidya.

The next day, everyone, including Vidya and Vidya's mom, had a hearty laugh at poor Shahid's expense.


After getting his foot in his own mouth with a prank gone wrong, Shahid perhaps thought it was better to gang up with Vidya and play pranks on others. One prey of the duo's prank was their co-star Vishal Malhotra, who is also a longtime friend of Shahid.

It happened during a shoot at a community center in Toronto. Vishal shot his portions of the scene and left for his hotel, thinking his work for the day was over. Both Shahid and Vidya pounced on this opportunity to pull a fast one on Vishal.

As soon as Vishal arrived at his hotel, he got a call from Shahid who frantically told the actor that the director was upset over Vishal leaving the sets without completing his shoot. Shahid's tone of voice got Vishal alarmed. Immediately he left back for the sets and when he arrived there, he saw an upset Vidya Balan. She told Vishal that he was behaving like some high-headed star.

While Vishal began to sweat with nervousness, it was producer Ramesh Taurani who couldn't suppress his laugh and gave away Shahid and Vidya's prank.

Many such small, but not insignificant, incidents happened during the making of 'Kismat Konnection'. The film has Shahid playing an out-of-luck architect who finds his lucky charm in Vidya. Juhi Chawla plays a crystal ball reader while Shahrukh Khan has done the narration.

Even after the film's shooting was over, Shahid and Vidya stayed konnected and today their "friendship" has bloomed to such a point that they are being linked together romantically.
