Shahid Kapoor is always in the limelight. Whether it’s for his films or his personal life, he is one of the media’s most favourite celebs. After getting accolades for his phenomenal performance as a rockstar in Udta Punjab, Shahid Kapoor is now ready for the biggest role of his life. Yes, the soon-to-be-father is all set to embrace fatherhood.
In a heartfelt interview with the Hindustan Times recently, Shahid Kapoor opened up about how his wife Mira Rajput had changed his life for the best. In fact, he went on to reveal that she has filled a void in his life.
“When I used to win an award, of course, my mum (Neelima Azeem) and dad (Pankaj Kapur) were always around, but I didn’t have anybody with whom I could share my achievements immediately. Things are different with your parents. It’s not that same feeling [that one feels with a spouse]. I would always think, “Who do I share my happiness with?”
Shahid Kapoor is as independent as one can get and this, from the age of 22. But just like every other human being, he used to crave for a family atmosphere. Now, all thanks to his marriage, he is in a really happy place. Talking about this, he said,
“There are times when you should be having fun. But there comes a time when you should have stability in your life. Stability is a long-term requirement. Short-term plans and a few days of flying around [for work] are fun, but eventually you need that [stability]. Also, I have been living alone since I was 22, so I always wanted that family atmosphere. I used to feel lonely.”
It’s quite evident from their chemistry that Shahid absolutely adores Mira. And being the alpha male that he is, he is also very protective of her. In this interview, he revealed how Mira has brought big changes in his life.
“There is another thing that I would always feel bad about. Whenever I used to land in any city, I’d never get a message asking me, “Have you reached?” Everybody around me used to get messages from someone or the other, asking, “Have you landed? What is happening there?” When you live with people in the same house, they keep track of your minute-to-minute movement. But that doesn’t happen when you live alone. I always used to think, “Yaar, kyun mere se koi yeh poochta nahi hai? (Why does nobody ask me how and where I am?). So, today, I feel happy to have that somebody”
When asked how often he receives those messages, he said:
