Shahid Kapoor had to cancel a holiday with his family due to work commitments. The actor was slated to join his father Pankaj Kapur in the US, as he was keen to spend some time with his folks, who are on a summer vacation there. Pankaj Kapur along with wife Supriya Pathak and their children Sana and Ruhaan left a couple of days ago for New York.
A source said, "Shahid was planning to be with them in New York. As they had planned a long trip, he was to join them at a later date." But now he has realised that he cannot be with them as his presence is required in Mumbai for Kunal Kohli's film Teri Meri Kahaani, which also stars Priyanka Chopra.
The source added, "He is extremely fond of Sana and Ruhaan and had decided to be with them in New York before he gets busy with the promotions of his film which is slated to release in June."
As the first look launch of the film was out last month and with the promos on air, Shahid's presence is required at the music related events being chalked out for the film. The source further added, "As his co-star Priyanka Chopra is away in the US pursuing her music ambitions, at the moment Shahid has to be present at the promotional events."
