Shahid Kapoor is currently on a paternity leave to be with wife Mira Rajput, who is expected to deliver anytime soon. The couple is preparing to welcome their second child, who is reportedly due this week. Shahid Kapoor had taken two-month long break during the birth of his first child, Misha. However, this time around the ‘Padmaavat’ actor barely got a couple of weeks off as the shooting schedule of ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ was delayed. Mira and Shahid had hosted a party in July to welcome their second child. A quiet celebration at their plush Juhu residence was graced by Shahid’s parents Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak and Shahid’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter.
Since he was busy preparing for the baby shower, Shahid had apparently skipped the special screening of ‘Dhadak’. On the film front, Shahid will soon be seen in ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ and has already started preparing for his intense role in ‘Arjun Reddy’ remake. Coincidentally, Mira is expecting to deliver her second child in September, the same month when Shahid will be busy with the promotions of ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ as the film releases on September 14.
