Recently, there were reports that Shahid’s father had made a few trips to Punjab to find a girl for his son.
“I can promise you that my father is not looking for any girl for me. When I read that article I was shooting for ‘Haider’ in Kashmir and my father was shooting for ‘Finding Fanny’ in Goa. And according to the article my father was in Punjab... So no truth in it,” Shahid said. “He (father) goes there (Punjab) because some of our family and his spiritual guru is there. People are drawing a different meaning out of it. He will never take the pressure on himself (of looking for a girl), because I am quite finicky. And I like making my own choices,” he said.
