Shahid was born in Delhi, I was living in Delhi with my parents at that time, as Pankaj moved to Mumbai. Pankaj left for Bombay before I became pregnant. And he wanted to try his luck in films and television. I supported him because I thought he was a very talented young man who wants to put his full potential into acting. My parents and my brother really cared a lot during the pregnancy.
Shahid’s mother Neelima Azim was revealed to me and Pankaj never made a home together
Mine and Pankaj have never been home together. Shahid lived with us in Delhi. There was no significant difference for Shahid as he was away from his father since childhood. Neelima Azim told that after the divorce from Pankaj in 1984, I raised Shahid Kapoor as a single mother. She has another son Ishaan Khattar with ex-husband Rajesh Khattar.
Shahid made his Bollywood debut with Ishq-Vishk in 2003 and has since won hearts with his brilliant acting in many successful films such as Jab We Met, Kaminey, Udta Punjab, Padmavat, and Kabir Singh. Shahid’s next film is the sports drama film Jersey This is a remake of the Telugu film, which also stars Pankaj. It is likely to be released this November.
