In an interactive session of the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2018 on Saturday, Shahid Kapoor urged people not to make virtual reality their "everything" as he felt that “there is more to life than that”.

The Padmaavat actor said "Now a lot of kids are focusing on how they look and spending a lot of time on it. We all are human beings, everybody wants to get dressed down. It is okay to wake up looking groggy. One should understand what matters the most. There is more to life than Instagram and selfies. People should take out time for the things which are far more important than just looks.”
In a recent tweet, Shahid shared how he was taking out time from his work so that he can be with his family and his newborn son Zain.
The last few days have been tough. Misha running very high fever and Zain just came home. Have had to miss some promotions. Just 9 days to go for Batti Gul meter chalu to release but being a parent is above all else. Hope to resume promotions very soon.— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) September 12, 2018
Shahid quipped, "There was a lot of pressure on me, as I was constantly thinking should I spend my nights at the hospital or should I go out for work. But, It was important for me to recognize what is important for me at this point of time. So, for me spending time with my family matters the most right now, my job being an actor and looking good and being presentable can wait for a few days.”
Shahid will soon be seen in the film 'Bati Gul Meter Chalu' alongside actor Shraddha Kapoor.
