When his daughter asked him, ‘What is your biggest fear?’ Kapur replied, “The fact that, have been a good dad.”

He added, “Every morning I wake up with the anxiety that have I done enough for my daughter because my daughter went through a lot. My biggest regret as a parent was that I was busy working when Kaveri was growing up. I am not attached to the material and put my life on the line, but with her, I wonder if I am being a responsible father?”

The filmmaker also said, “People say I have this cool aura about me, but inside I am really scared. Every morning, I panic that people will find out I am con (laughs), and that the real me is something even I don’t yet.”
