The heart-throb, Shahid Kapoor, married a Delhi-girl Mira Rajput in July last year and surely broke a million hearts. After dating top actresses like Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, and being briefly linked to Vidya Balan, the actor has now settled down with a non-celebrity. And to top it, after a year of their sugary-sweet romance, Sha-Mira is blessed with a baby girl.
Does it make you wonder how the glamorous star ended up falling for this young girl? Here’s a complete lowdown that might throw some light on the Sha-Mira love story.
- Who is Mira?
Mira is a 22 year old girl from Delhi. She did her B.A in English Honors from Delhi’s Lady Shri Ram College.
- How they met?
Shahid Kapoor and his father Pankaj Kapoor are followers of the religious group, Radha Soami Satsang- Beas, and Mira’s parents are also believers of the same faith. Mira was a family friend and the two met on a few occasions.
Shahid had maintained that he wouldn’t want to get married to a Bollywood actress. He felt that it would give him an outside perspective and not create complications that come with getting together with another star.
His parents were keen that Shahid get married, as they thought it was the perfect age and time for him to find a life partner. While Pankaj Kapoor mentioned on several occasions that he would love to see Shahid get married, Shahid too felt that it was a good time for him to settle down. Shahid, who met Mira on several occasions, decided to take things forward with her.
- A Love-arranged Marriage
Shahid did fly down to Delhi to meet Mira a few times. The two connected, but Mira, we hear, was a little skeptical about taking it forward because of the age gap of 12 years and Shahid’s star status. But after several conversations with Shahid, Mira felt that he was the right one. And in July last year the couple tied knots in capital with family while gave a huge reception in Mumbai.
- What Shahid said after their marriage?
“She is a normal girl and I am a normal boy, and we should treat it as a normal thing. I am very happy. I am very happy to announce it.”
After the wedding, Shahid posted a picture online; captioned, #hitched.
- Now Shamira’s Baby Girl
On 26th August, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor were blessed with a baby girl in the evening. Mira was rushed to the hospital and Shahid has been right by her side since then. Shahid’s Instagram has always given us glimpses of the beautiful moments that he spent taking care of wife Mira. Now we are all waiting to catch a glimpse of the little bundle of joy that has just become a part of their family.
