Shahid Kapoor is a changed man, in other words, a responsible family man. Earlier, his life revolved around films and only films. And now he shares his life with his adorable wife, Mira, and their newborn baby girl, Misha.
In a short interview at the Jio MAMI Mumbai film festival, he opened about how he feels when he comes back home after work:
“I don’t want to leave. I guess a man who is a father will understand. It can’t be defined. It gives you a lot of strength. I feel strong because I want to fight for Misha and be my best for her. I want to be better every day because I want her to be proud of me.”
He believes that his family is his topmost priority right now:
“I am hardly working. I guess the first thing that happened to me was going jobless. I don’t know if it has changed me as an actor, but it has changed me as a person. I understand priorities in my life. I understand what I want to give my time to. When you are single, there are so many things that you can do. I was living alone for more than 10 years. So, everything was possible. I was master of my own will.”
But this change came on gradually, he added:
“In the beginning, it is really difficult. You feel like ‘Oh my God! I can’t do what I want to do anymore, and then later you feel it’s awesome. I feel happy to come back home and share my happiness,”
Though he has huge respect for his past relationships, he feels that he always wanted someone more real and normal. He said:
“I am an actor. I have great respect for what I do. I have been in a relationship with actresses. It’s not like I had an issue with it. I just felt like it was important to find somebody who is real and normal.”
It also seems like Mira has a fresh and mature influence on Shahid when it comes to choosing the right films. Shahid continued:
“She is 13 years younger so, she brings in a fresh perspective. When I read a script and I can’t relate to it, she looks at me and asks ‘Are you insane? This is exactly what normal people talk about. How can you not relate to this? She shows me a different perspective. She is strongly opinionated and honest. She gives an unadulterated and honest opinion,”.
Again today, Mira and Shahid strengthened our belief in happy marriages.
