Shahid Kapoor has reacted to the comments and attention his one-year-old daughter Misha has been getting online. The actor says his daughter didn’t ask for the celebrity treatment at such a young age, which even he did not have to deal with when he was a child.
In an interview to Mid-Day, Shahid reacted to the attention Misha has been getting on social media. “My daughter didn’t choose this glamorous life. What’s her fault? I hate to think of all the glare that’s on her. That is probably the only time I feel I should have had another job. I don’t want her to deal with it. It’s not good for children to go through this. They have a right to a normal childhood,” he said.
“She has to deal with it because I am her dad. It’s tough for me, as a parent, to make peace with that. I hope she will learn how to tackle it when she grows up. Misha is the only one who soothes me in a world filled with harsh critics. I am responsible for a woman who has left her life in Delhi to be with me. I am responsible for my daughter and must be an example for her. I have to be a good human being first, a good actor later. I’ve realized that this drastic shift is helping me grow as both,” he added.
Talking about his own childhood, he said. “No one knew I was Pankaj Kapur’s son till I joined the industry. It was only after an IMDB page about me was made that people discovered who my father is. My mother was a struggling actor, who separated from my dad when I was growing up. So, I had a regular middle-class childhood, devoid of attention.”
Shahid and Mira Rajput got married in 2015 and Misha was born in 2016. He was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat and will next be seen in Batti Gul Metre Chalu.
