Shahid Kapoor became a father for the first time a few months ago. The actor recently shared his daughter Misha’s photo on Instagram and his first film since she arrived, ‘Rangoon’ (2017), has just released. The actor has said it’s a special time and Misha’s arrival in his life has changed him.

“I was indeed selfish before I became a father. I would always think about myself. But parenthood has changed me a lot. Ever since Misha has entered my life, I always think about her first. It’s a great feeling to have a lovely girl child,” said Kapoor, according to Deccan Chronicle.

Talking about having to develop a balance with the time he has, he adds, “I steal some time to be with my family. As a parent, I now realise that parents love their kids more than they love themselves”.

He went on to talk about the things that his wife Mira has had to deal with as he’s taken on dramatic roles, ““In fact, the day I got married, I told her ‘Ok, now leave me alone for a few days; I have to prepare for this really tough role in Udta Punjab’. And she was like, ‘What? Who says that to his wife on the first day after the wedding?’ Later, I told myself, ‘I am going to do a fun, light-hearted role next to be able to give time to my family and the next thing I know, I am playing Raja Ratan Rawal in Padmavati. Stardom is more about working really hard and your family supports you by making silent sacrifices”.
