When Mira Rajput wed Shahid Kapoor, who was 34 at the time, she was only 21 years old. Fans of Shahid were pretty shocked to learn that he had chosen to wed a woman outside the film industry. Shahid explained why he married Mira and how she makes him feel on Koffee With Karan 7.
In the course of their conversation, Karan Johar complemented Mira and questioned Shahid about his decision to wed her. “I think it’s a little bit of an outer body experience when you are actually getting married,” Shahid retorted. So it was pretty easy for me. I have two completely different personalities. The first is undoubtedly what people think of me as an actor and from the fraternity, the glitz and glamour, and everything like that. I also have a very domesticated and spiritual side to myself.
Shahid went on to say that because of his deep faith, vegetarianism, and abstinence from alcohol, it was challenging to find someone who could appreciate all aspects of him. After nearly ten years of living alone, he was 34 and eager to start a family.
Everything came up at that same moment through relatives and friends. The best thing that has ever happened to me, however, simply sort of occurred when we met. And I believe she completes me and contributes a lot to my world. We have lovely children, and she makes me feel extremely normal. I’m grateful for it, he continued.
On July 7, 2015, Shahid and Mira were united in marriage in Gurgaon. They are parents to two kids: son Zain and daughter Misha. At a house party of the friends of their families, Shahid was present when Mira, then 16 years old, first met him. A few years later, their families got in touch, arranging for Shahid and Mira to meet in 2014. After speaking for a total of seven hours, cupid eventually dealt them a serious blow.
