I would like to push a file share shortcut  through group policy. I would like the shortcut to only point to particular user folder only in the folder structure. So user1 shortcut can only go to fileshare\user1 folder. Let me know if this is even possible

I have actually not tested this before. What you could try is using %username% and see if it goes to the correct folder based on the user that is logged in. Do this with a test user before rolling out to production.
