An actor who managed to break into Bollywood as the cute chocolate boy and eventually crossed over to the reputation of being the handsome hunk is none other than Shahid Kapoor. The handsome star is known for his stellar performances in films as well as for his killer looks and style. But, if there is one thing that fans know him best for, it is his impeccable and divine dancing. Right from his debut film Ishq Vishk till now, Shahid has set the screens on fire when he shakes a leg. 

Be it full-on filmy dancing or Punjabi bhangra, Shahid has aced it all. He quite fluidly transforms from a Punjabi jatt to an uber-cool hip hop dancer and well, his effortless dancing makes it hard for audiences to look away. On his 40th birthday, we decided to revisit the actor's amazing dance moves all over again in 5 of his super hit chartbuster songs. Mind you, going further will compel you to sway along with 'Sasha' of Bollywood as his smooth moves will get you into a party mood. So, get ready to groove with birthday boy Shahid with his 5 best dancing numbers.

1. Nagada (Jab We Met)

The perfect song to dance at a wedding or a sangeet saw Shahid transform into a Punjabi gabru for Kareena Kapoor Khan aka Geet. The song showcased how perfectly Shahid nailed bhangra moves with full power and energy. What caught everyone's attention was his ability to nail the whole Bhangra act in Kurta and Salwar with a smile. Well, surely his training from Shaimak Davar's Academy came in handy and the song went on to become a chartbuster!

2. Dhating Naach (Phata Poster Nikla Hero)

While the film may not have made a mark, Shahid's dance in the power-packed number Dhating Naach certainly did. In the upbeat number by Pritam, Shahid is seen dancing like a complete 'filmy hero' with perfect moves, energy, and pumped-up act that will steal your breath away. His signature move with Nargis Fakhri surely became popular among the youth and was emulated by many fans on social media. The song showcased how Shahid could rock the stage in Bollywood style dancing too. 

3. Gandi Baat (R...Rajkumar)

The song featuring Shahid Kapoor leaves little room for the dancing actor to catch his breath due to the swift steps and complex moves. However, being himself, Shahid showcases his skill and technique and clubs with the rawness of his character in the film to give us a 'massy' dancing act in the song. Gandi Baat surely is a song that you would love to groove to when you are enjoying the night with your 'desi dosts' while having a gala time. Shahid's killer moves may be hard to recreate but with little practice, you'll be able to ace them!

4. Gulaabo (Shaandaar)

Shahid's classy side mixed with the naught one was unveiled in the song Gulaabo from Shaandaar. The song featured him and Alia Bhatt in perfect suits as they grooved to the jazzy music. The popping and locking moves seemed to be perfectly nailed by the Shaandaar actor and his quirky expressions made it hard to take one's eyes off of him. Add to that his pumped-up energy and what we get is a perfect dancing superstar, Shahid!

5. Urvashi (Music Video with Kiara Advani)

The remake of AR Rahman's song Urvashi was picturized on Shahid and Kiara. The music video showcased Shahid's ability to transform into a hot and handsome hunk. Once again his impeccable dancing technique was on full display in the music video as we got to see the actor nail freestyle, hip-hop, and Bollywood dance moves. That clubbed with his sizzling chemistry and feel of the song made for an epic combo for Sasha's fans. 

Apart from this, Shahid has managed to nail many other dance superhits including Mauja Hi Mauja, Bismil, Saree Ke Fall sa, and more. It's safe to say his fans are waiting to see him shake a leg all over again in his upcoming movies.
