Bollywood’s chocolaty hero Shahid Kapoor has always been tight-lipped about his abrupt break-up with actress Kareena Kapoor. They confirmed the split but didn't talk more than essential about their relationship. After keeping mum for years, Shahid has finally broken the silence.

In a recent interview, Shahid became candid on how devoted boyfriend he was while in a relationship with ex-flame Kareena. He revealed that the cheerful boy inside him has mellowed down after the tragic break-up, making him look or perhaps sound like a snob.

"I blame it on my being a great boyfriend. I was in a four and a half year old relationship and was very committed,” Kapoor said in a recent interview with a national daily.

Kareena has moved on in life and is all set to marry beau Saif Ali Khan this October but Shahid Kapoor is often being wrongly framed for his cold behaviour. But four years on, the actor has moved on; he admitted that he has learned some very important lessons of life from the memories that are still etched in his mind.

"Now I have learnt better. And I shall not be the most wonderful boyfriend," he said to break the monotony of the sober conversation.

Being a gentleman that he is, Shahid says that he has no qualms about what ever happened with him in the past and is happy with his current space.

“I don`t look back. I am happy the way things happened and the way things are now. I am in a very good space. That`s all that matters,” he said.

On being asked what holds him back from socializing as much as his other co-stars, Shahid said, “I did not find any reason nor did I have the time to socialize or make friends otherwise."

A happy and single bachelor now, Shahid is presently busy promoting his latest film “Teri Meri Kahani” with co-star Priyanka Chopra.
