Shahid Kapoor does not want to be over-protective to Misha, like his dad

Actor Shahid Kapoor recently revealed that his father Pankaj Kapur is a bit hyper and over-protective when it comes to his kids and he hopes he doesn’t get these traits from him.

Shahid and wife Mira Rajput had their first daughter in August, and named her Misha. And in an episode of ‘Vogue BFFs’, he said, “I think my dad is a great guy! I don’t think a guy can be that good, to begin with. There are things about him that I think are amazing, there are things about him that I don’t want to be like that with my child.”

He added, “He is an extremely nice person and he has always been a friend to me, those are the things that I would want. But he’s a bit hyper and he’s a bit over-protective. So, those are the two things that I hope I don’t do to my child.”

Talking about one piece of advice that his father gave him, Shahid said, “Actually more than a piece of advice. What my dad told me was that, ‘Now, you will know all the complaints that I have always had against you’. Because the one thing my dad keeps telling me is that I don’t call him enough. And I pretty much call him almost every day! But he still always complains about the fact that ‘we don’t connect enough, we don’t spend time enough’ and finally when obviously Misha happened, he told me, ‘Now you will know what it’s like when you miss your child’.”

Shahid Kapoor will next be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati‘ .
