When you have short-term memory,

But Google is here to remind you otherwise!

We are talking about this statement from Shahid Kapoor that caught us off guard today. Check it out below:

When you have short-term memory

First of all, did IMDB even exist back then when Shahid Kapoor made his debut? Second of all, everyone knew at that time who he was. It was the main selling point of his debut film. The problem was youngsters back then didn’t even know who his parents were. We remember vividly how we told our lady whose son he was and she knew while we didn’t. Then, ‘Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon’ came out and Shahid’s father played Kareena Kapoor‘s father in that film, that’s how we know who he was.

As you remember, Shahid and Bebola were dating at that time; that was basically his claim to fame. We wanted to confirm what we remembered because it cannot be that Shahid thought no one knew who he was until IMDB unveiled that fact. Thankfully, Google is here to help with these:

What he said about growing up is true because his parents weren’t the Bachchans and even Hrithik Roshan had a pretty normal childhood because his dad was not really someone famous. Also, Shahid is comparing then to now, which is not fair at all. As in, then when mobile phones with cameras didn’t exists, then when the internet was not really happening and then when the paps weren’t in the faces of stars following them and their families or when they get called to take candid pics of stars and their families. That was then and this is now.

Shahid gave this statement in a bid to show his annoyance and also how he is different from other star parents. To be fair, if he doesn’t want people to know who his daughter is, he and his wife can just stop sharing pictures of her on social media. They can also ask the paps nicely to stop taking pictures of the kid and they will oblige. But that’s not going to happen since we all know how showing off your kids is the new trend. How can Shahid and Mira hide their kid when Bebola is happily showing off Taimur? That’s the reality of it. He is right, it’s going to be hard for the kid, but at the end of the day, as a father, he has a choice; a choice that he always had but choose not to make. All these little kids, who are exposed publicly, are not going to have it easy as they grow up. Hopefully, their parents prepare them for what they are about to face when they start understanding what’s happening around them.

Did you notice he used to be addressed as ‘Kapur’ and over the years, it has changed to ‘Kapoor’? Even his dad today still a ‘Kapur’.

    Why care so much about Shahid’s last name kapoor or kapur or Khattar. Its like what stays with the audience stays like that. Most bollywood actors have acquired names and not birth names or given names. To name a few, Ajay, D, Akshay K, DIlip Kumar, Govinda…. Amitabh Bachchan is not even a real name even the surname is acquired. His real name is Inquilaab Shrivastava. They are not even Bachchans for gods sake. Even Ranveer Singh uses his mothers last name and not fathers. As the mother is singh bu the father is Bhavnani. I don’t understand how HIs father can be called Jagjit “singh” Bhavnani as per online data. More like father changes his name for son’s convenience. Or i could be wrong and there is such a thing as “Singh Bhavnani”. Most of them have even changed the spelling of name /surname several times due to numerology. The most annoying and weird one is Kunal Khemmu Now the last name is spelled as Kemmu. Got any lucky kemmu??

      Wow Sara, I didn’t know the Bachan bit.maybe Abhishek can change his name to Srivastava things might change:.But other Bachans won’t let it happen. It will be a big secret out.

      Anyways looks like OPOS is going the way other sites are going .shahid bashing sites.

      • Hmmm says:

        Shahid is a polarising actor. I think most people here respect Shahid’s talent but not how obviously insecure he comes across when he acts with other talented actors/actresses via his throwing shade quotes. I saw him in real life and he is handsome and interacted really sweetly with his fans. Unfortunately he has such a Napoleon complex when it comes to other talented peers especially if they are better than him in a film e,g, Kangana, Ranveer. He needs to keep quiet and just let his work speak for him.

        Why wud abhishek change his name to srivastav when literally all he has is the Bachchan surname? Its why aishwarya married a flop actor like him, for his surname.

    • Shivanisd says:

      Lol girl. Amitabhs name is amitabh only not inquilaab!! His brothers name is ajitabh. Amitabh ajitabh. Bachchan is a poet surname as his father harivansh was a famous poet from allahabad up. Real surname is srivastav, Amitabh is half kayasth half sikh.

    Isn’t his legal name Shahid Khattar? Read once he uses it on his passport…

  3. Monalisa says:

    Before Shahid say he never had an issue with an actor before Ranveer, here is a reminder for him ofhow he never got along with Fardeen on Fida sets. Fardeen sure did not mince his words to show his displeasure toward Shahid.


    Why did he change the spelling of his surname?

  4. Amanda says:

    I didn’t knew shahid’s parents till 3 films of his got released… I couldn’t place his father pankaj kapur since I had never seen his work… All the fame and attention he got was due to bebo…

    Well, mira has hired paparazzi photographer for herself and Misha… Why complain now….

    Yeah I noticed that surname spelling getting changed… Lol…

    an article on this..??
    big deal he messed up some facts happens to a lot of us attimes..
    i dint care about whose son shahid or hrithik were..for hrithik his debut film with those looks and moves were enough to grab all our attention while shahid was that chocolate boy back in ishq vishk which weirdly still happens to be one of my fav bwood romcoms..ppl initiay noticed him for tht movie his dancing skills and later on kareena ofcourse..

    so he mustve simply tlkd abt the exposure any star kid gets ths days like even chunkey pandeys daughter compared to his debut time when noone cared tht muchh abt whose son etc etc..simple mistake on his part..no big deal
