Mumbai, Dec. 16 -- After being in three flops - Mausam (2011), which was directed by his father Pankaj Kapur, Teri Meri Kahaani (2012), Phata Poster Nikhla Hero - Shahid Kapoor has finally struck gold at the box office with R... Rajkumar.
As expected, the actor has been flooded with congratulatory messages. But the one that has meant the most to Shahid has come from his father.
On Saturday (December 14), the veteran actor went over to Shahid's apartment that is located in the same building he lives in. He wanted to congratulate his son personally. "They spent hours chatting. It was an emotional moment for Pankajji because he always knew Shahid had the potential, and his recent success has proved that," says the insider.
Before the promotions of his film began, Shahid was busy shooting for Haider in Kashmir. As a result, he hadn't had a chance to catch up with his father for over a month.
Shahid couldn't be reached for a comment, but his spokesperson confirmed the news.
