Ever since Shahid Kapoor’s baby girl has started making appearances at the airport, wrapped in a cloth, people have been losing their shit. As ardent fans, everybody wishes to see Kapoor’s li’l girl, Misha. However, the actor has been keeping her away from the flash of shutterbugs. Every time he has stepped out, Misha has been covered with a cloth and held close to his heart. So the more we see the actor carry his baby around, the more we are reminded of the late Pop Icon, Michael Jackson. Wondering why? Well, we have proof that the Dangerous singer always covered his children’s faces with a piece of cloth till they turned 10. Reason? To protect his kids from the prying eyes of media.
When Jackson’s kids were young, paparazzi was obviously curious to see them and let the world see them as well. Therefore, to avoid the hullabaloo around what his kids looked like, MJ purposely made them undergo a myriad of disguises. Of course the kids weren’t very thrilled about it as they found it ridiculous. In fact, his daughter Paris told Ellen on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, ‘I’m like, “This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?” But I kind of realised the older I got, he only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us too.’ She further added, ‘I do have a regular childhood. I mean, I’m treated the same. When I came to (my new school) they didn’t know who I was. I was like, “Yes, I have a chance to be normal.”‘
Now we have five instances of Shahid Kapoor with Misha and Michael Jackson with his three children where both the parents covered their kids’ faces. You can scroll below and check it out.
In his defense, though, the 36 year old actor tweeted, “Unfortunate how some journos don’t realise how bad 20 cameras flashing 2 feet away are for an infants eyes. No common sense in their dna.”

While we do agree with the actor’s reasoning on hiding his baby girl, we can’t help but wonder when we’ll get to see her. There is a lot of suspense built around Misha we’re dying for just one glimpse!
