However, the situation changed after the birth of their Siddhant Kapoor. The couple also has a daughter, Shraddha Kapoor, who is now an actress.
Kapoor said, “When she was 19 year old, my son Siddhant was born. This is the first time Shivangi’s mother has spoken to her since our marriage when she came to meet her at Breach Candy Hospital. ”
Back in 2007, Shivangi Kolhapure and Shakti Kapoor participated in the popular dance reality show Notch Baliye 3. However, the two had to leave the show midway because she was suffering from back pain and was unable to perform.
