He might be veteran actor Pankaj Kapur’s son, but Shahid Kapoor doesn’t compare his acting journey to that of other star kids’. He says that his approach and reaction to success were like an outsider’s."I was a middle class kid, who never stayed with his father. I lived with my mom (in Delhi). My parents separated when I was very young," says Shahid, while sharing that he did spend time with his father, but didn’t grow up in the industry. "It was a dream (becoming an actor). A lot of boys I see today [in Bollywood], are from within and around the industry. People feel the same about me, but I am not like them. I wasn’t even in Mumbai for the first 10-12 years of my life," he says.
