Shahid Kapoor's mother is a Muslim and Father is a Hindu. His parents have chosen to retain their respective religions even after marriage and Shahid Kapoor is getting the best of both religions. That is the beauty of living in a country like India and let us accept it.

In today one can survive only if he is a Muslim, because hindi filmdom is dominated by Muslims, and of course shahid is a Muslim

Shahid Kapoor is a practising Muslim. The following is an excerpt from the interview with SHAHEEN RAJ during the month of ramazan 2010. This interview was published in a notable Bollywood news website SANTABANTA.COM When asked about the separation of his parents in his childhood, any victimization due to cultural clashes and religious divides of Islam and Hinduism, this is what he has to say...

"No I was not at all affected by their separation neither am I a victim of culture clashes or the religious divides of Islamic and Hinduism.

For the simple reason that right since my childhood I have always considered myself as a typical Muslim as my mom Neelima Azim and my Nanihal's (Maternal ancestors) Islamic influence has been too strong and too powerful enough to cause any other religious diversion in my mind."
