Shahid Kapoor reveals quitting smoking for daughter Misha on Neha Dhupia’s podcast

In a heartfelt revelation on the podcast ‘No Filter Neha’ hosted by Neha Dhupia, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor disclosed the catalyst behind his decision to quit smoking — his daughter Misha. Sitting down with Neha Dhupia for the sixth season of her show, the actor engaged in a candid discussion that shed light not only on his professional endeavors but also on his personal transformations, including his journey to kick the hazardous habit of smoking.

During the candid conversation, the actor shared a poignant moment that led to his life-changing decision. “When I used to smoke, I would hide from my daughter and smoke. That is actually the reason I gave it up; one day, while I was hiding and having my smoke, I told myself that I am not going to do this forever. And that is actually the day I decided to quit smoking,” Shahid Kapoor recalled. Clearly, the presence and influence of his daughter played a pivotal role in inspiring Shahid to adopt a healthier lifestyle for the sake of his family.

Family life is evidently of paramount importance to Shahid Kapoor. He married Mira Rajput in July 2015, and the couple has since been blessed with two children — their daughter Misha and son Zain. The actor’s transition into fatherhood has seemingly been a transformative experience, prompting positive changes that extend beyond his personal habits.

His paternal responsibilities, however, have not hindered his thriving acting career. On the professional front, Shahid Kapoor was last seen in the science fiction romantic comedy ‘Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya’, sharing the screen with actress Kriti Sanon. Fans of the actor can anticipate his next project, ‘Deva’, which is currently in the pipeline. With his career moving forward, it is clear that Shahid is adept at balancing his family life with the demands of his profession.
