Bollywood celebrities live in the comfort of their plush houses, we all know that, because we have seen pictures of their houses. But not all stars had the same comfort since childhood. Celebrities have had their share of struggle too. Take Shahid Kapoor for instance, we have often seen Shahid outside his fancy residence on the Juhu Tara Road but there were times, during his teenage years, that he didn’t have all the luxuries.

Shahid Kapoor‘s upcoming film, ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ deals with the problem of power cuts, but during Shahid’s teenage years, he has personally experienced power cuts.

Recollecting the “very strong” memory, Shahid shared, “Actually, it is a little sad story. For six months, I had stayed in these houses which had those asbestos roofs. I had that time in life for six months and we had to live there. And there would be power cuts.

He added, “In the afternoon, it used to be so hot that we used to be sitting in the house sweating. That is a very strong memory of that time. It was obviously before I became an actor. I was 17 and was living with my mother.”
