Shahid Kapoor on his loneliness
Talking to Humans Of Bombay, the actor opened up on being lonely in his early and wanted to start a family immediately. He said, “I would win awards and would come back home and share them with my dog. I was like, ‘Yeh kya life hai (what is this life), what is the point of all this.’ You need to share your life with somebody. I was single and I was happy, life was great. I was self-sustained. I was living on my own. I had been earning for a long time so I was independent. Beyond a point, I was a man, nobody would ask me questions. My parents were also like, ‘Now you are a grown-up, do your own stuff.’ But I felt very lonely and I wanted to have an immediate family”
