Shahid Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter posted lovely messages for their mother Neelima Azeem as we celebrate Mother’s Day today. Shahid Kapoor was born to Neelima when she was hardly 21 and the actress-dancer raised him with the help of her family. 14 years later, she gave birth to Ishaan Khatter. In an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble, Neelima Azeem recounted the day Shahid was born and told us what it felt like. She also revealed how little Shahid Kapoor always had dreams of supporting her well, given that the family did see the ups and downs during the initial days.
Recounting holding Shahid Kapoor as he was born, Neelima Azeem said, “In those days, as soon as he was born, they put him on my stomach. I saw him in that way and felt him. I held him first and held him long and it was beautiful.” Stating that Shahid was very obedient as a child but also had a naughty streak, Neelima added, “He was a very good child, though he had a naughty spark in him, but, at the same time, he was very well behaved. The moment, he was home, he would become his naughty self. Shahid was always very obedient and observant. He is very sensitive and kind. He doesn’t like to be a difficult person for other people. He would adjust and was very accommodating.”
Did he grow up and become responsible at an early age seeing his mother (you) struggle? “When he came to Bombay (now Mumbai) with me, He grew up a little and realised that I am doing a little hard work. That made him a little introspective and philosophical. He had dreams of supporting me well once he grew up. Woh uske armaan the and I could see that. He was very responsible for his age. He did a lot of hard work.”
