Shahid Kapoor's mother Neelima Azim admits that she was a young girl when she fell in love and got married. Despite being divorced from her first husband Pankaj Kapur, she never lost hope or became bitter towards people around her. She does consider it a 'difficult time' in her life emotionally but she refuses to call it a 'suffering' or a 'struggle'.
In a candid conversation with us for Dear Mom, Azim opens up about her life, separating from Pankaj and having Shahid in tow. She shares, "I would like to say that I didn't decide to separate. It's a fact. He moved on and it was a difficult thing for me to stomach but he also had his reasons. We had been friends from a long time. I think I was 15 years old when I became friends with him. He had very good reasons and I understood it." She further adds, "When there's a break-up, which is called divorce, it is painful for both. There was a lot of friendship and attachment but there was heartbreak. It's alright. He's very well settled with his family today and I wish him well."
