Shahid Kapoor fans, do not panic! The actor’s this statement does not mean that he’s actually quitting acting. However, doting daddy Shahid in a recent interview to Mid-Day revealed that he sometimes wishes that he’d not be in Bollywood or the profession that he has chosen for himself – acting. Shahid said, “My daughter (Misha) 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.”
Shahid has been extremely protective of Misha. Unlike ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor Khan, who along with hubby Saif Ali Khan unveiled the Chotey Nawab’s face within days after he was born to avoid paprazzi chase, Shahid continued to fiercely protect his baby girl from the shutterbugs. The actor started posting pics with baby Misha only a few months back. With starkids like AbRam, Taimur Ali Khan, Misha and Inaaya Naumi Kemmu becoming social media superstars, paprazzi often follows every move of these young toddlers. No wonder, Shahid is wary of the undue attention.
Like Shahid, Soha Ali Khan too had expressed her concerns with celebrity kids being clicked by the photogs. The actress-turned-writer had once talked about how she did not expect a picture that she posted of daughter Inaaya with Taimur on Instagram to go viral. Saif’s sister even requested the paps to avoid using harsh lights when clicking these little ones. She had also talked about how she fears evil eye, “They are too small now. I don’t understand about their fan following but, of course, she is my daughter, so I find her cute. People around me get worried because recently I uploaded a picture of Inaaya on Instagram, but they thought that she will catch the evil eye. But she was looking very cute, so it made me do that. But after that, I also felt worried because a lot of people praised her picture and then I applied kohl on her forehead.”
Well, looks like Shahid and Soha are really concerned about their little princesses. We hope that Shahid never quits acting. By the way, not so long ago on Karan Johar’s chat show the actor had agreed to give up on acting for sex, but that was in jest. This time looks like Shahid really means what he says….
