Batti Gul Meter Chalu actor Shahid Kapoor, who will be seen next in Batti Gul Meter Chalu opposite Shraddha Kapoor, is all set to embrace fatherhood again. His wife Mira Rajput is pregnant with their second child, with the due date close to the release date of the film in September. The actor is well prepared to deal with both the responsibilities but is also “nervous”.
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, the actor talked about how he is feeling about becoming a father for the second time. “Having a child is the most amazing feeling. And we are fortunate that we are having a second one so soon, so [I am] feel happy and blessed about that. Family is always a big reason to work even harder. When you come back home to your family [after work], it’s a great feeling,” he said.
When asked about his responsibility for doubling up with the second baby he said: "I don’t think so. It’s just that you have to do whatever is required (as parents). In fact, I am nervous because I have Batti Gul’s release coming up in September and the baby is due around the same time. That’s why I have to dedicate my time correctly to both the things and hopefully I will be able to manage it well".
Shahid is also prepared to move into another house once the baby arrives: "Even I have heard that price (laughs). It’s true that I have looked at a new house and most probably, I will shift in by the end of next year. I need a bigger house now as my current place has just two bedrooms and very soon, Mira and I will have two kids, so I need to move in to a bigger house".
On the work front, Shahid Kapoor is all set to star in Batti Gul Meter Chalu opposite Shraddha Kapoor. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha fame, Batti Gul Meter Chalu also stars Yami Gautam and Divyendu Sharma in pivotal roles. The dramedy deals with the issue of frequent power cuts in the country with one of the primary characters receiving an outrageously high electricity bill which motivates Shahid to take matters in his hands.
