There’s a reason why a daughter is called daddy’s little girl. Just how he transforms into a completely different person with his daughter by his side, it is only him, who can make his little one’s eyes light up, shine bright and dance. A daughter knows she has someone to have her back, someone who had worked day and night to give her nothing but the best and no matter what life throws on her, she would be strong enough to deal with it because that’s what her father had taught her. Parenting is a bliss and it is even more special for a father and daughter. She becomes his priority and he becomes the first man she loved. Seems like Shahid Kapoor shares a similar relationship with his little girl, Misha Kapoor as in these four years, we have seen several instances where the father-daughter duo had made us go aww!
The memory is still fresh in our minds when Shahid Kapoor had introduced his newborn daughter, Misha Kapoor to the world. After teasing the fans with glimpses of the little one’s tiny feet and a blurred mirror selfie, Shahid had introduced Misha to the world by posting a black-and-white picture of her, cuddled in mommy, Mira Rajput Kapoor’s arms. Since then, there isn’t any moment when Misha has not melted our hearts with her cuteness and lovely smile. Though Shahid and Mira don’t share pictures of Misha and their second born, Zain Kapoor, on social media now, the little one’s throwback pictures are always a sight to behold!
It was Shahid Kapoor’s 40th birthday on February 25, 2021, and to mark that special day, family and child photographer, Ankit Chawla had posted some adorable unseen pictures of the actor with his daughter, Misha Kapoor. Scrolling through the Instagram page of Ankit, we found two lovely pictures of Misha with her chachu, Ishaan Khatter. Recalling how Misha had leaped into Ishaan’s arms, calling him chachu, Ankit had captioned the post as “‘Chachu’ as she fondly called him, Misha leaped into his arms the minute she lay her eyes on him. The purity of their moment stopped the sun in its path, the waters lay calm and the air blew gentle as they gazed upon the wonder this moment was. Indeed, she knew there wasn’t anyone more suitable than him, for her. Misha Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter share a candid moment as I captured the innocence of the love they share.” Another picture of Misha and Shahid was shared on his birthday last year.
Diwali 2017 was extra special for the Kapoor family as it was their first with Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor’s ‘little angel’, Misha Kapoor. Shahid had posted a picture of Misha, dressed in peacock blue coloured lehenga and had captioned it as “Phoolon ki rangoli with my little angel. On this festive day let’s celebrate love and togetherness.” Ishaan Khatter had also posted a picture from the Diwali celebrations at Shahid and Mira’s residence, with his ‘Guchki baby’, Misha and mother, Neliima Azeem in the frame. Ishaan had captioned it as "Best bites ever".
In a throwback conversation with the DNA, Ishaan Khatter had spoken about his affection and adoration for his little niece, Misha Kapoor. He was quoted as saying, "Misha is just the most delightful, joyous presence in all our lives. She is funny, extremely intelligent and an adventurous kid." Speaking of how he doesn’t get time to spend with Misha, because of his work and travel, Ishaan had continued, "I do get to spend time with her, but not often enough. I would say because of the nature of our work. They also get busy sometimes while travelling. But Misha is developing and growing in a beautiful manner."
There’re no second thoughts that Shahid Kapoor’s charm has doubled after he became a father to Misha Kapoor. Speaking to a popular entertainment portal, Shahid had once narrated an incident when he had held Misha in his arms for the first time and why he called up and apologised to his father-in-law. Shahid had said, “I was both ecstatic and scared. I began thinking of Mira’s father and how he must have felt when he gave away his baby, his daughter to this strange guy, an actor from Mumbai with a ponytail and coloured hair, who perhaps thought he was a ‘cool dude’. I called him up instantly and apologised if I had troubled him at any point. I may have overlooked his point of view somewhere, regarding something which may have been important to him, this realisation came when I held a baby girl in my hands when I felt vulnerable. I don’t want anything to go wrong with her ever. I guess, being a man, I always thought of as a man. But holding a baby girl gave me a new perspective. It changes everything.”
We wish Shahid and Mira would share more pictures of the little angel, Misha Kapoor!
