- My daughter didn't choose this glamorous life: Shahid Kapoor
- He said no one knew he was Pankaj Kapur's son till he joined the industry
- It's not good for children to go through this, he said
Shahid Kapoor also said that he had a 'regular childhood' despite being the son of actors Pankaj Kapur and Neelima Azeem. "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. I got to know my father only after turning 18. So, I had a regular middle-class childhood, devoid of attention," the Ishq Vishq actor told mid-day.
But it's not the same for Misha, who was born in August 2016. "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," Shahid Kapoor told mid-day. Earlier, Shahid Kapoor's wife Mira Rajput has also requested the paparazzi to keep a distance from their children, when pictures of Misha playing in a park went viral.
