Introducing Abhishek Kapoor & Pragya Yadav's son, Shamsher

29th August 2018

It was yesterday when 'Kedarnath' director Abhishek Kapoor was blessed with a baby boy and he informed all his fans through the social media platform. Now the director revealed the name for their baby boy in an Instagram post which included a black and white picture of Pragya Yadav holding her newborn child in her arms.

The post read "I started my career as an actor and did a number of movies as a leading man... many of them didn't even see the light of day and the ones that did, failed miserably. Then, I wrote a story called Aryan and made a shift to direction. That movie didn't succeed either. I went back to work and made another movie which many thought would barely make a mark.''

Abhishek concluded the post saying, ''On the 28th of August 2008, exactly 10 years ago, that movie, Rock On!! premiered and went on to succeed like no other that year and won two National Awards. The ease with which our son has entered this world carried the same confidence his mother has.. like a lion.. infact he is a 1st amongst lions. His mother and i have decided to call him.. #Shamsher #jaibholenath.''

Abhishek Kapoor married Pragya Yadav in 2015. She debuted in Bollywood with 2014's 'Hawaa Hawaai'. Apart from 'Rock On!!', he directed 'Kai Po Che' and 'Fitoor'. His upcoming film is Kedarnath, starring Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput.
