He has been a fantastic husband and is proving himself to be a loving and responsible dad as well.
He explained, "For the first time in my life, I don't feel like leaving home to go to work. I used to hate staying at home. If I wasn't working, I'd be at the gym, watching a movie or be out with friends, because I used to live alone and would feel lonely. Although I liked being on my own, there was too much of it. Now, I don't feel like leaving home, and that's a new feeling for me. I can spend the whole day at home with Misha and Mira, and that in itself is a day well spent. This thought never resonated with my personality before. So that's a big change for me."
The 35-year-old actor further stated, "Fatherhood makes you regret a lot of things you did in the past. I was watching a movie recently and there was a scene between a father and a son. Earlier, 90 times out of a 100, I would have seen it from the son's point of view. But, for the first time, I started relating to the father's perspective."
Shahid explained, "Trust me, it was so new for me. Five minutes into the scene and I was like, 'What the hell just happened?' I was connecting with the father's point of view. That was a massive change in terms of perspective."
"Now, after having a daughter, I think from the point of view of being a parent. Everything changes (after you become a father). I don't think like an individual anymore. I'm answerable to my wife and child."
When Shahid was asked if he is overprotective about Misha, he explained, "That's me lying to myself! That's me talking out loud, hoping it comes true. When I said that and came back home, Mira said, 'You know na that you are already overprotective?'"
"Whenever we meet someone who also has a three or four-month-old baby, I go ahead and say, 'Misha bhaiya ko hello bolo.' So, I'm quite crappy like that. Mera abhi se chalu ho gaya hai."
The 35-year-old actor stated, "Mira and I talk about everything. Whenever she chooses to give her opinion, they are important to me. She is a bright girl and has a fresh point of view towards things. It's always good to have another person's point of view. The film fraternity has a certain way of looking at things, and then there are common people, who have a different way of looking at movies. Her point of view is more than welcome."
He will soon start shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie Padmavati with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
He stated, "I guess it's that time in my life when I have to do things that are large and are going to demand a lot from me."
He explained, "Padmavati is a massive film and it will be a new and different experience. I am a huge admirer of Sanjay sir and feel happy and fortunate to be collaborating with him on a magnum opus."
Shahid said, "If Leonardo DiCaprio was worried about a Matt Damon or other stellar characters in The Departed (2006), including Jack Nicholson, and had given into his own insecurities, he would have reduced the cinematic potential of the film."
"If Tom Hardy was to worry about his role in The Revenant (2015), he would have lost out on the opportunity of featuring in one of the most revered films of that year. I have seen this happening to many actors over the years. But, I have seen enough of success and failure to know what works."
"What works is being successful, and being part of relevant cinema. Everything else that we eccentric people create in our own heads, while sitting at home, pull us down."
