Do you think they'll cause a career shortage or something? Or will they help people with daily tasks? What do you think?

It depends... Sometimes, they can be helpful for some simple mechanical tasks like transporting things from one end to another, folding papers, etc. to save time But if they will do almost everything that humans can do, then it will lose people's job. Robots can just assist but not to teach humans to be lazy and idle.

Although I see robots can make our lives better but then i do believe that it could be counter productive since many manual labourers would definitely be outdated by these technology. Unless our generation will be shifted to be more intellectual since I think it is where the trend is going in the information tech age.

yes robots will play an important role in the future. Mostly in the exploration of oil and gas. moreover robots will be used for the space exploration. In japan and korea now a days small robots are used to play with kids.

Hopefully we don't have a situation like Second Renaissance(Matrix/Animatrix) or Cyberdyne(Terminator). If you haven't watched Second Renaissance its actually free for download on the Matrix site. It provides an interesting take on robots in a futuristic society. I kind of have trouble with robots as slaves, but then again I might be overthinking this what if.

Personally I would love to have a robot around to clean the house. It wouldn't take a job away from anyone because I am not fortunate enough to have a hired housekeeper; but it would give me more free time, something I seriously lack.
