Kedarnath director Abhishek Kapoor and wife Pragya Yadav welcomed their second child on Tuesday and have named their baby Shamsher. The Rock On director shared a lengthy post on Wednesday, sharing the first photo of his son and revealed why they named him Shamsher. “The ease with which our son has entered this world carried the same confidence his mother has like a lion. In fact, he is a first amongst lions. His mother and I have decided to call him Shamsher,” he wrote.

Among those who wished the couple on Shamsher’s birth is Shahid Kapoor’s wife Mira Rajput, who is good friends with Pragya. “Congratulations @pragyayadav, #bumpbuddy,” wrote Mira along with a throwback photo of her and Pragya.

Abhishek and Pragya have a daughter, Isana, together. To announce the birth of Shamsher, Abhishek shared a video with Isana.

In his post, Abhishek wrote how his son was born as his film Rock On!! completes 10 years. “I started my career as an actor and did a number of movies as a leading man... many of them didn’t even see the light of day and the ones that did, failed miserably. Then, I wrote a story called Aryan and made a shift to direction. That movie didn’t succeed either. I went back to work and made another movie which many thought would barely make a mark .On the 28th of August 2008, exactly 10 years ago, that movie, Rock On!! premiered and went on to succeed like no other that year and won two National Awards... I had finally got my head out of the water and could breathe,” he wrote.

Apart from Rock On!!, Abhishek Kapoor has directed Kai Po Che and Fitoor. His upcoming film is Kedarnath, starring Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput.
