Shahid’s toddler learns kathak and we are not surprised…

Mira Rajput’s picture of the little Misha is all kinds of cuteness

The genes are apparently asserting themselves already! Mira Rajput has shared an adorable pic of little Misha, dressed in a kurta and churidar, apparently having her Kathak dance class! The little tot looks on entranced as the dance teacher whirls gracefully. Mira captioned the photo, “Guru Shishya Parampara”.

With Misha a little more than a year old, she sure is starting young – not that dance requires one to be a certain age! And with daddy ‘Smooth Moves’ Shahid around, does she have a choice! On World Dance Day, the actor had taken to Instagram to post the cutest possible video of the then eight-month-old Misha matching steps with her father, bopping along in her harness. He had captioned it, “#worlddanceday #havefeetwilldance #mj dance is in your blood.”

Shahid’s own fascination with dance goes back a long way. In an old interview, he had revealed, “It’s an obsession since childhood! My mom (Neelima Azeem) is a trained classical dancer, and I used to spend hours watching her practice. In school, I was a great fan of Michael Jackson and would keep trying to copy his moves in front of the mirror. Then MJ came to perform in Mumbai—and I remember saving my pocket money for months so I could afford to buy the ticket. That performance had a major impact on me, and I later joined Shiamak Davar’s dance classes. Within weeks, Shiamak spotted me and I was promoted to the advanced batch. Soon after, he offered me a spot with his troupe, and from then on life was one big party— I was making money, going all over the country in a huge group, and doing what I loved. Those were great days!”

Shahid’s half-brother Ishaan Khattar, who makes his debut opposite Jhanvi Kapoor in Dharma Productions’ remake of SairatDhadak, is also a fabulous dancer. Shahid himself proudly stated once on the celebrity dance show, ‘Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa Reloaded’ that Ishaan often dances to his (Shahid’s) songs and that he is a better dancer than him.
…Which is why we really aren’t surprised that the one-year-old Misha is already picking up the moves of classical dance. The genes always shine through!
