Shahid Kapoor On His Breakup With Kareena Kapoor: It Did Hurt Seeing Kareena With Saif Ali Khan
Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor were one of the hottest couples of the b-town. Both of them were head over heels for each other but unfortunately, the couple broke up after quite some time for the reasons best known to them. While Shahid took some time to move on Kareena found love again in Saif Ali Khan. In a throwback interview, Shahid had confessed that it did hurt to see Kareena happy with some other man. He was quoted as saying, “It will be dishonest to say that this doesn’t affect me. I am human, it hurts to see and read this all the time”I guess I have no choice but to live and deal with it. I’ll cherish the good memories of that relationship and move on. That’s what I’m doing – looking at the positive side and trying to be happy.”
In another interview with famous film critic Rajeev Masand, Shahid talked about his post-breakup phase and said, “Yes, it was a very trying period for me for almost a month, and it was very clearly a question for me of choosing between my personal feelings and my profession. I had two choices, one was to come back and not talk at all, not go out in the press and not interact with the media – which would save me the pain of answering questions which I am uncomfortable about, or go out there and promote my film which was released in three weeks.”
He further added, “I chose to do the latter because I think it was important for me as a hero to be there for my film and I had great faith in the film. So yes it was difficult and uncomfortable but I accepted that as a part of the way things work out here.” He had retorted, “I think the most difficult was to not talk about because it was so public and it was really important for me as a person to draw a line as they are areas that are very personal and it’s not classy to talk about them in print.”
In a throwback interview with Cosmopolitan, Kareena also had shared what was the most important thing she did ever for Shahid Kapoor. Bebo had replied, “(Nothing. Our relationship is not like that, it’s too early. It’s too soon for the romance part to start. At the rate we’re both shooting, there is no time to look deeply into each other’s eyes and be lovestruck. We are more like friends (giggles) okay, a little more than friends”
He had further added, “We do the stuff any other young couple does, eating out, watching movies…I really enjoy watching movies. When we get a chance, we go to Fame Ad Labs to see films, we sneak in when it’s dark after the movie has started. It’s lovely. It’s so relaxing. That’s what I enjoy most about being with Shahid. I get to be normal and do normal things.”
Well, their breakup made lots of rounds in the newspapers and media back in those days. However, now both of them are happily married, Kareena to Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor to Mira Rajput. We wish them all the happiness in life.
