On Tuesday, actor Shahid Kapoor stumbled upon a black-and-white childhood photo of himself and created a collage out of it with his toddler, Zain Kapoor's picture. Zain is eleven-months old and is the second child of Shahid Kapoor with wife Mira Rajput.

Shahid Kapoor shared the photo on Instagram and no prizes to guess that his son Zain is his father's mirror image. The actor asked his followers to point out the similarities between those two pictures. He wrote, "Spot the difference #likefatherlikeson."

Dhadak actor and Shahid Kapoor's younger brother, Ishaan Khatter was amongst the first few to comment on the pictures. Ishaan shared a red heart emoticon whereas director Siddharth P Malhotra wrote, "I can't make out at all besides the colour on pics! It's like a xerox copy." On the other hand, Rajesh Khattar, Ishaan's father asked, "Who is cuter?"

A few days ago on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, Mira Rajput shared a family photo of themselves where daddy-son and mommy-daughter wore same outfits. While Zain-Shahid wore a yellow kurta with pot-flowers printed on it, Misha-Mira opted for dark pink and yellow kurti paired with leggings. Adorable, we say! In the picture, Mira is helping her daughter tie rakhi to her brother Zain Kapoor, while Shahid is holding his son's hand.

Shahid Kapoor was last seen on the big screens in Kabir Singh, which is a remake of Vijay Deverakonda's Arjun Reddy. Kabir Singh has turned out to be Shahid's highest opening film of his career and the highest grosser of 2019 with Vicky Kaushal's Uri: The Surgical Strike next in order.

Giving his opinion about it, the Haider actor told IANS, "The two most successful films of this year are Kabir Singh and Uri: The Surgical Strike. Nobody thought these films would get these numbers. The size of a film shouldn't be defined by the money that went into making it. A big film that makes little money is a small film. And vice versa. Today, the idea has to be big."

All said and done, the actor confesses that he still feels like a newcomer, and of late he's been spotted hanging around with the industry bigwigs.
