Shadoo, as his wife prefers to call him, expressed how he couldn’t carry the emotional baggage of his workload back home. Shahid Kapoor is recently working on his film Kabir Singh. The movie plot revolves around Kabir Singh, an alcoholic surgeon with anger management issues, who goes on a self-destructive path after his ex-lover marries someone else. The versatile actor is seen in an angry avatar in the film’s trailer, drinking endless bottles of liquor and taking drugs. Kabir Singh is slated to hit theaters on June 21.The actor expressed his difficulty in switching from his full of rage onscreen role to a perfect father at home.
Actor Shahid Kapoor has disclosed how he would return home longing for some sleep but daughter Misha will wake him up and drag him to the garden. Discussing about his challenges, Shahid told in an interview that, “After long days or night shifts, I return home longing for sleep. But my daughter Misha will wake me up between 7.30-8 am every morning and drag me to the garden. I have to play with her, tell her stories. And it’s imperative that I give my children as much time as I give to my work.”
Shahid Kapoor adds, “My wife (Mira) is supportive but there are days when I wish for eight hours more. Your ‘me’ time is impacted but it’s gratifying to get a shot of positivity every morning. Misha is a little lady now, Zain is still a baby, but with a daughter and a son it feels like a perfect family.”
The actor believes in the theory “You want to do things that will make your family proud. It will be there for my kids to see, give them an understanding of who their father was and what he did. You can’t tell children what to do today, you can just set a good example and let them take away from it what they want.”
On the same note, Shahid expressed that he could not carry the negative energy back home. “It was almost schizophrenic because the two worlds are such contrasts. Had I been single, living alone, I might have immersed myself in this dark zone for six months, as I did during Udta Punjab. But this time I am married, a father, so I had to sanitize myself before returning home to protect my children from the negative energy. I couldn’t carry Kabir’s emotional baggage back so I had to flip roles after 'pack up'”, he said.
