Shahid Kapoor’s daughter Misha has always been in the headlines and her pictures keep circulating in the media.
When we talk about the most popular star kids of B-town, then there are a few names who are the favourites of the paparazzi. From Saif Ali Khan-Kareena Kapoor Khan’s son Taimur to Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, we often get to see their clicks. And another popular star kid is Shahid Kapoor’s daughter Misha Kapoor. But it seems like the actor is not very happy with his daughter being in the media glare all the time.
Talking to Mid Day the Padmaavat actor said, “My daughter didn’t choose this glamorous life. What’s her fault? I hate to think of all the glare that’s on her. That is probably the only time I feel I should have had another job. I don’t want her to deal with it. It’s not good for children to go through this. They have a right to a normal childhood.”
He added on saying, “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.”
Talking about his own childhood, when he didn’t get such kind of attention, Shahid said, “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.”
It was a few days back only when Shahid’s wife Mira had requested the shutterbugs on Instagram to let Misha enjoy her childhood. And not follow her everywhere for her pictures!
