Since then, there has been a feverish level of excitement as netizens are eager to see a glimpse of the newborn. Mira got discharged from the hospital on Friday, and Shahid and Misha brought her home.

Shahid's mother Neelima Azeem expressed her joy to an entertainment portal. "It's wonderful. Shahid and Mira are complete. I am in the best phase of my life. Misha has been the love of my life ever since she was born. And now, Zain joins her. He is a beautiful child. We all have toiled very hard in our lives and now just reaping happiness. God has been kind," she said.

Neelima said that she had a strong feeling that it would be a son. "I had a very strong feeling that they will get a son, this time. I had even shared it with them. I kind of saw a son in their arms in one of my dreams," she said.

Apparently, the name Zain was decided at the time of Misha's birth, itself. "Mira and Shahid decided it mutually. At the time of Misha's birth, Zain was decided. It was that it will be Misha if it is a girl (combination of Mira and Sasha) and if it is a boy, it will be Zain. Long back I had shared the name with Zain. I had told Shahid that I love 4 names- Shahid, Ishaan, Zain and Kaamraan," revealed Neelima.

Shahid's father Pankaj Kapur had earlier expressed his happiness. "It's the most delightful thing that can happen to any family. Shahid's family is now complete. God bless all of them. We are thrilled about the new arrival," he said.

On the work front, Shahid will be seen next on the big screen in Shree Narayan Singh's Batti Gul Meter Chalu. The film, which also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma and Yami Gautam, revolves around the issue of power shortage and huge electricity bills. It is slated to release on September 21.
