Shahid Kapoor is unrecognisable in this 1999 television ad (Photo: Facebook)
Shahid Kapoor’s climb in the tinsel town rung is nothing short of laudatory. From starting out in ads such as this viral video to being a back dancer to movies such as Aishwarya Rai’s Taal, the Kabir Singh actor knows the fruit of success all too well. Following his recent Arjun Reddy remake hit, a Doordarshan fanpage on Facebook unearthed an old television ad on Monday featuring young Shahid as nothing we have ever seen. Seen wearing a wig to make his appreance a little feistier with a biker jacket who is not least bothered to get dirty given it is an ad for a liquid detergent, the short clip makes us say woahh, is that him?
Watch the video here:
The short ad shows Shahid entering his sister-in-law to wear a white kurta for puja but refuses to wear it since it was stained. The ad then unfolds like any other detergent ad-magically transform the cloth into a bright white and everyone is happy!
Taking about throwbacks, wife Mira also shared a picture of her then, young husband on Instagram presumably much before the big star he has now become. The actor who had his debut Ken Ghosh’s 2003 Ishq Vishk has also worked in big hits like Jab We Met, Kaminey, Haider, Padmaavat, Udta Punjab.
