Recently, there were reports that Shahid's father had made a few trips to Punjab to find a girl for his son.
"I can promise you that my father is not looking for any girl for me. When I read that article I was shooting for 'Haider' in Kashmir and my father was shooting for 'Finding Fanny' in Goa. And according to the article my father was in Punjab... So no truth in it," Shahid said.
"He (father) goes there (Punjab) because some of our family and his spiritual guru is there. People are drawing a different meaning out of it. He will never take the pressure on himself (of looking for a girl), because I am quite finicky. And I like making my own choices," he said. When asked what he feels about the absence of lady love in his life, he says that it has its pros and cons.
Shahid asserts that as far as marriage is concerned, he would choose his own life partner. "I will not marry a girl of father's choice, because he doesn't have to stay with the girl, I have to stay. And he knows this thing," he added. In the past, Shahid was reportedly in a relationship with Kareena Kapoor. Later, he also reportedly dated Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra. Besides them, his name was linked with actresses Nargis Fakhri, Bipasha Basu, Anushka Sharma and Huma Qureshi.
When asked what he looks for in a girl, Shahid says, "I have not thought about it so much. When you fall in love everything seems right... If I fall in love that will be good enough."
