We speak about Govinda, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff being the best dancers in Bollywood. But these lists sometime ignore Shahid Kapur. Shahid Kapur is actually the missing link of Bollywood dancers between Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. Today, he has wowed us with his performances in movies like Haider and Kabir Singh. But before he was Kabir Singh, he has played some of the most dance-worthy characters in Bollywood.

Here is a list of the top 5 Shahid Kapur Dance Performances

  • Dhan Tana (Kaminey)

Dhan Tana is from Kaminey, a Vishal Bharadwaj movie that propelled Shahid to superstardom and changed the idea of him being a chocolate boy hero forever. In Kaminey, Shahid plays a dual role and has a ball doing it. He plays the Good Boy/Bad Boy, and in Dhan Tana, he is the bad boy – the choreography and set design says it all. And whatever’s left unsaid is an agressive, street-cred inducing dance steps by Shahid.

  • Tu Mere Agal Bagal (Phata Poster Nikla Hero)

Shahid has been acting in message movies for a while, so Phata Poster Nikla Hero is a rarity. In this song, Tu Mere Agal Bagal, Shahid shows off some sick dance moves. The song is a fun, light one and the fast paced choreography makes this one of the best Shahid Kapur songs out there.

  • Saree Ka Fall Sa (R.. Rajkumar)

R…Rajkumar was an action entertainer that captured the audience’s hearts the moment it released. It  had Shahid Kapur in another over the top role, and this time he shared screen with Sonakshi Sinha.  For some reason, this song is a choreographer’s darling as well as of those who do gymming.  You will hear this song in several gyms all over the city.

  • Mat Maari (R..Rajkumar)

And then comes Mat Maari, another song from R…Rajkumar that has Shahid Kapur in another exciting song and dance routine. The song has him dance with some interesting characters, from vegetable vendors to Bhangra dancers. This song is a blast, and Shahid Kapur takes it a few notches higher.

  • Dhating Naach (Phata Poster Nikla Hero)

Dhating Naach is another popular Shahid Kapur song, that you will find playing at some of the most happening parties. This dance anthem is also from Phata Poster Nikla Hero and features Shahid with Nargis Fakhri was the song that brought Indian street dance to the fore. Dhating Naach is one of the few songs that had absurd lyrics but matched the film’s context in its entirety and made it to some of the most happening playlists of the year.


  • Gandi Baat (R…Rajkumar)

Possibly the most popular song that Shahid Kapur is part of. Gandi Baat once again propelled Shahid Kapur to the top of the best dancers in Bollywood list.  This song, along with the others, are still present on so many of dance playlists.
