'From being a good looking teenager to the most good looking young man,' that is how actor Rajesh Khattar describes his stepson Shahid Kapoor's journey. Shahid turned 38 today. After being a national crush when he entered the showbiz industry, Shasha is currently the most sought after actor in the industry. On the personal front, Shahid seems to be the pillar of a modern family. He shares a great bond with his half-siblings Ishaan Khattar and Sanah Kapur and is a thread between two families. His bond with his step-dad Rajesh Khattar too has been something that is subdued and never really spoken about. However, Rajesh's birthday note for Shasha is such a beautiful testament of their strong bond.
On his birthday today, Rajesh wrote a note for Shahid, which he posted along with two pictures. The first picture is of Shahid in his younger days and the second one seems to be quite recent. "From being a good looking teenager to the most good looking young man. From being the most promising newcomer to an award winning mega star, from being a loving husband to a doting father,ur journey has been nothing short of inspirational. U have evolved to be a complete performer & an exceptional human being & make all around you super proud," the message reads.
Here, take a look at the post...

After Shahid's parents Pankaj Kapur and Neliima Azeem got separated, the two got married to Supriya Pathak and Rajesh Khattar respectively. Despite all of this, the family maintained a cordial relationship with each other. During a chat show, Shahid spoke about the same. He said, "When my mom got married for the second time, she was pretty clear she didn’t want a second baby because she felt like, you know, it was pretty late, she got married in her early 30s. I kept pestering her saying that it is not fair, I deserve a sibling. And she literally had Ishaan for me. I begged her for two or three years. And finally, she gave in and said ‘Alright, I am gonna have one.’"
Currently, Rajesh is married to actress Vandana Sajnani post his separation with Neliima.
We wish Shahid a blissful year ahead.
