Shraddha Kapoor was 23 when she made her Bollywood debut. She first acted in the 2010 drama Teen Patti, alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Ben Kingsley and R. Madhavan. Though the film was not critically acclaimed nor did any good at the Box Office, her performance was better received.

After Teen Patti, Shraddha Kapoor was seen in Luv Ka The End, which was quite liked by the college-going audience, mostly. However, it didn't really do up to the mark at the Box Office.

However, Shraddha Kapoor turned the tables with her romantic saga - Aashiqui 2, alongside Aditya Roy Kapur. The film's music, dialogues were liked by the audience and it went on to become the most profitable film of the year (2013).

"Because I did not get success overnight with my debut film, I have seen both the sides very closely. I am lucky that a mass audience loved me, accepted me and I manage to build my fan following. I want to grow that with my quality work," Shraddha Kapoor said.

Shraddha Kapoor further added, "See, I know that what goes down, surely goes up because what goes up, someday goes down. It is the law of nature and we are no one to change that. Maintaining a consistency in my work, my craft and improving me with each passing project is the only thing I can design. So as an actress, I want to focus on that."
