Having been in the Bollywood industry since 2003, Shahid Kapoor has maintained his popularity despite a fluctuating career graph. In a career spanning 16 years, Kapoor has proved his versatility by playing diverse characters, right from the sweet and charming boy-next-door, Rajiv in Ishq Vishq, to impulsive, self-destructive and well, hot double role in Kaminey. He’s obviously won countless hearts. But being a public figure, his relationships have also been in the public eye.
So, it was a bitter-sweet moment for countless girls and women all across India when the news of Shahid Kapoor’s arrange marriage to Delhi-based Mira Rajput came out.
Their pair was one of the most talked about and raised quite a few eyebrows, seeing that Mira is a Bollywood outsider and 13 years younger. The couple were family friends and had met on a few occasions. And since Shahid had always maintained that he wouldn’t prefer getting married to an actress, age was a minor hurdle to overcome.
Shahid has been quoted as saying, “I have been in relationships which have been organic, and come to understand both have their pros and cons. I feel this is more formatted and in some ways, better. People are going to say, ‘we can’t believe you just said that’, but I really feel this kind of arranged match-making is great.”
If this doesn’t have you aww-ing instantly, here’s what Mira had to say, “I am the audience in the relationship, he is the star. But fortunately, I think he is very receptive to me, I really enjoy it when we get together and chat about things.”
Totally adorbs, right?
It’s been 4 years since they tied the knot and it looks like the couple is falling in love with every passing day. Shahid and Mira are now the proud parents of two super-adorable kids – 2-year-old Misha and 9-month-old Zain.
So, let’s take a look at some of the best, most precious and intimate moments of this lovable couple!
