Shahid Kapoor is enjoying the perks of being a father. Time and again Shahid has expressed how happy he is to have Misha in his life and it’s always a joy to know more about his little princess Misha. In one of his recent interviews, Shahid shared a rather hilarious experience where he said, “I mimic her (Misha) funny sounds rather than teach her words. So that she feel’s we’re sharing a conversation.” Aww! Now that’s both cute and funny at the same time. I am sure being a father is an overwhelming experience fvor you and you seem to be quite liking it! Talking about how he loves being around Misha for as much as he can, Shahid says, “I’ve spent a lot of time with Misha. I took a six-month paternity leave. I did it more for myself than her. I didn’t want to miss out on the experience. People cautioned me that it was not a good decision. That I’d be out of the limelight. But being an actor I’m a freelancer. I change her diapers, I give her bottle feeds. I fed her first solids. I enjoy hanging with her when she moves in the walker. I like looking at her when she rolls around.”
The Rangoon actor also spoke about how the birth of Misha changed his perspective. He said, “I was both ecstatic and scared. I began thinking of Mira’s father and how he must have felt when he gave away his baby, his daughter to this strange guy, an actor from Mumbai with a ponytail and coloured hair, who perhaps thought he was a ‘cool dude’. I called him up instantly and apologised if I had troubled him at any point. I may have overlooked his point of view somewhere, regarding something which may have been important to him, This realisation came when I held a baby girl in my hands when I felt vulnerable. I don’t want anything to go wrong with her ever. I guess, being a man I always thought of as a man. But holding a baby girl gave me a new perspective. It changes everything.”
On the work front, the actor will next be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Padmavati which also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in the lead role.
