In an interview to Filmfare, he had said, “I used to be pretty self-oriented till I became a parent. Though I believed I used to be selfless. But when I became a parent, I realised I used to be in reality damn egocentric. Now I don’t put myself first. You find yourself thinking approximately your kids and circle of relatives first. Now and again it’s nice. Now and again it’s frustrating because you do want to put yourself first at times. Each and every individual needs to have their own breathing space. I struggle with it.”
Shahid’s parents were delighted that his circle of relatives used to be now total. Soon after Zain’s birth, Neelima Azeem had told Pinkvilla in an interview: “It’s been joyous. The circle of relatives is total, Shahid and Mira now have a beautiful son and a daughter.. so it feels great. Misha has got a young brother and we have got wonderful grandchildren, so the feeling is difficult to describe in words but I guess, I feel on the top of the world and very grateful. It is rather exciting as there is such a lot to do.”
