Shraddha reminds me of Meena Kumari, Madhubala: Shakti Kapoor

By HT

Shraddha Kapoor hit the marquee with her last film, Aashiqui 2. Actor Shakti Kapoor is gaga over his daughter Shraddha Kapoor's acting talent.

So much so that he has compared her "beauty" and "natural acting" to that of legendary actresses such as Meena Kumari, Waheeda Rehman and
Madhubala.

"I don't interfere in anybody's life and never at the script level," said Shakti, who is married to Shivangi, Padmini Kolhapure's elder sister. They have two children - Shraddha and Siddhant.

"If she needs my advice, she is welcome. But she is a very intelligent girl, she studied at the Boston University. On the contrary, if I am in some problem, I take her advice," the 54-year-old added. "Today's youth know more than we know and I can only give her my experience," said the doting father.

After delivering box office duds such as Teen Patti and Luv Ka The End, Shraddha hit the bull's eye only with her last release Aashiqui 2. The movie became the second bollywood outing this year to enter the Rs. 100 crore club, and Shakti says he is proud of her.

"I am happy that her film has done well and as a father I am very proud to see a very good actor. I am not saying this because she is my daughter but actually she is a very good actor. She reminds me of natural acting what Madhubalaji or Meena Kumariji used to do," Shakti said.

"She reminds me of Waheedaji, of those era actors who were not just beautiful, but their acting also was very natural. There was no artificiality. She reminds me even of Madhuri Dixit, the innocent Padmini Kolhapure of Prem Rog. I wish her all the best," he added.

Shraddha is currently shooting for Punit Malhotra's Gori Tere Pyaar Mein.
