Shahid Kapoor is living a happy married life and he just celebrated his first marriage anniversary with his wife Mira. He loves being married and is all set be a father.
He recently spoke to a popular daily about his personal life. He claims that he is now a different person after marriage and he can feel a difference in himself. He even said that he got married at the right time in his life. 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. Also, I have been living alone since I was 22, so I always wanted that family atmosphere. I used to feel lonely.”
The star was asked how different it is to stay with a spouse and living with a family, to which he said, “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?”
When he was asked about other changes in his life, Shahid said, “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 around me (smiles). Now, he gets it every time, “Every other second (laughs). But, on a serious note, it’s a good feeling,” he said.
The actor doesn’t mind giving up his freedom of being alone anymore. “If you have nothing to hide, then your freedom is not at stake. I don’t think I have anything to hide,” he added. On the work front, Shahid is not keen on signing any other films after ‘Rangoon’, as he wants to spend time with his wife and new-born baby. He said, “Yes, Vishal sir’s film is out in February. So, in terms of being seen on the big screen, even if I start a project by the end of this year, I’ll have that movie ready by June or July next year. Anyway, it doesn’t make sense to rush into a new film as you need a gap of five-six months between two movies. I cannot jump from one role to another by just changing my facial hair and clothes. It’s important to try something new in every film.”
Looks like Shahid was a family guy all along. Sorry ladies, but looks like you missed out on the perfect guy!
