While speaking with Hindustan Times, Shakti laments “I have seen this film industry for many years and I can say that this is the finest film industry. Log bahut negative bolte hai film industry ke baare mein. There are people always standing up for you. Yeh cheez baahar nahi aati, bas negative cheese baahar aati hai. But it is not like that. It is sad that only negative aspects of the film industry gets highlighted.”
Citing the example of his own journey, the 70-year-old actor recalled how he was able to make a mark in the industry only because people were open to new actors. He asserted that he always had good people around him.

People praise my daughter and I feel so happy. She has been working in these Covid-19 times and even Siddhanth is keeping so busy. I feel blessed to have had this career and this personal life.” Also Read: As Shraddha Kapoor Jetted Off To Shoot For Luv Ranjan’s Next, Daddy Shakti Kapoor Pens A Letter Asking Her To Open It After She Boards The Flight
