One of the most well-renowned celebrities, apart from her films, even veteran bollywood star Neliima Azeem’s personal life has created a lot of buzz always and in her recent interview with a leading digital entertainment portal, Neliima reveals real backstory about divorce with Pankaj Kapur.
Speaking up about her divorce with first-husband and Shahid’s father Pankaj Kapur, Neliima also spoke about its impact on three and half year old Shahid Kapoor and also shared that when he had been born, She and Pankaj both had spent the early years of their life at her parent’s house in Delhi and then it was later that Pankaj moved out of the city for trying his luck in Bollywood films.
Explaining same, she said, “Shahid was very young, he was three and a half years old. Shahid was born in Delhi, while I was staying with my parents, because Pankaj had already left much earlier. At the time when I had conceived before we knew, he had already shifted to Bombay and he wanted to try his luck in films and television. I had supported him because I thought he was a very talented young man who deserves to explore his full potential”.
Also revealing the fact about how she was taken care of by her parents and brother throughout her entire pregnancy, Neliima said, “When Shahid was born, we were with my parents in their home. Pankaj and I never had a home together ever. Shahid was used to staying with us there in Delhi. It wasn’t as if he stayed with his father and then he had to shift out. He was in the same surroundings he always was in, from the time he was born. It didn’t make such a huge difference. He was very young and secondly, he was in the same ambience and family structure as he used to be”.
