Yes, Shahid is nervous of his dad. But, before our readers form a wrong perception about this, baap beta jodi, let us clarify the trivia that Shahid gets nervous while preforming in his dad’s presence.
His dad, a versatile actor himself, Pankaj Kapoor is a well known face. His terrific performances in movies like ‘Maqbool’, ‘Dus’, ‘The Blue Umbrella’ etc. would give fits of uneasiness to any actor, while Shahid is just a budding actor, still for too away to gain his dad’s charisma.
Recently Shahid’s dad visited him on the dets of ‘Jab We Met’ at Khandala. Director Imtiaz Ali narrates:
As soon as Shahid knew that his dad was there, sitting in front of the monitor, his performance suddenly dropped. Then Shahid took a break and returned a few hours later, and performed wonderfully well. After spending quality time with his dad, he asked him to leave. And Pankaj Kapur seemed to understand.
Well, hats off to the terrific understanding!
