Shahid Kapoor was born on 25 February 1981 to actor Pankaj Kapur and actor-dancer Neelima Azeem
Shahid Kapoor was just three years old when his parents divorced. Pankaj Kapur shifted to Mumbai to marry actress Supriya Pathak, while Shahid continued living in Delhi with his mother and maternal grandparents. "My mother was a struggling actor, who separated from my dad when I was growing up. I got to know my father only after turning 18. So, I had a regular middle-class childhood, devoid of attention," said Shahid
Shahid's mother Neelima Azeem remarried actor Rajesh Khattar but separated in 2001. Ishaan Khatter, who is soon going to make his Bollywood debut with Dhadak, is Shahid's maternal half-brother from his mother's marriage to Khattar
Ishaan and Shahid share a great relationship, even though they are half-brothers
For a recent magazine interview Ishaan's big brother Shahid Kapoor, was asked about his views on Ishaan's big screen debut. He says, "I do feel very proud of the work that he has done. But I don't want to talk about it. I want people to see it. Let people see it and let people decide."
Shahid Kapoor shares a co-ordial relationship with his step-mother and actress Supriya Pathak. In fact, Shahid's half-sister Sanah Khan (daughter of Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak) shared screen space with Shahid in Shaandaar, as Alia Bhatt's sister. The boy in the centre is Shahid's half-brother Ruhaan Kapoor

We don't think so we need to introduce the little munchkin in the picture with Shahid Kapoor. Do we?
Shahid Kapoor says the strongest people in his life have been women, especially his mother Neelima Azeem who has been a single parent. He also calls his wife Mira and daughter Misha his "whole world" and says he couldn't have been happier in his life than now
Misha Kapoor has been paparazzi's favourite. And thanks to Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor's adorable Instagram posts, Misha has already got fan clubs on social media
Misha is undoubtedly one of the cutest star kids in Bollywood and the proud parents cannot help but share cute pictures of her on the social media, every now and then
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput have been often spotted with their hands locked into each other at parties or award shows. They aren't afraid of expressing their affection in public. Luncheons, dinners, gym, they hit everywhere together as a teenage couple madly in love
Talking about Misha, in one of the interview, Mira Rajput said, "Shahid and I will make sure Misha has her own space and not feel the pressure of being in a certain way because there are people around her (referring to fans). I think she is growing to see her father work so hard. She will have to respect that and figure out how she is going to manoeuvre her way through that, and I will help her with that"
Wifey Mira said she is extremely happy and also surprised to see a different side of Shahid as a doting father. "Shahid has it in him to be very loving and caring and the love that you have for your children is different. Seeing the fatherly love was surprising for me."
Shahid Kapoor and wife Mira have constantly expressed concern over the attention given by shutterbugs to daughter Misha. "My daughter didn't choose this glamorous life. What's her fault? I hate to think of all the glare that's on her. That is probably the only time I feel I should have had another job"
Shahid's new role as a father, and husband, has changed the way he looks at his priorities. "I am responsible for a woman who has left her life in Delhi to be with me. I am responsible for my daughter and must be an example for her. I have to be a good human being first, a good actor later. I've realised that this drastic shift is helping me grow as both."
Shahid Kapoor's face instantly lights up when he thinks about his daughter, who according to him is the only one who soothes him in a "world filled with harsh critics"
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput will be celebrating 3rd wedding anniversary this year in July
