Shahid Kapoor graced the Koffee With Karan couch with Kabir Singh co-star Kiara Advani. In the latest episode of the chat show, the duo spoke on various topics. Kiara who is planning a wedding with her boyfriend Sidharth Kapoor spoke about her plans amidst this Shahid Kapoor spoke about marrying Mira Rajput.
Since the industry is filled with wedding vibes with Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif to Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt getting married, Karan Johar asked Shahid about his marriage. At the time when celebrities are marrying their co-star or industry friends, the Jersey actor tied knots with Mira Rajput who doesn’t belong to the industry. To this KJo questioned if marrying someone from outside the film industry was a conscious decision.
Shahid Kapoor said on marrying Mira Rajput: “So for me, it was very simple. I have two very distinct sides to myself. One is obviously what people see of me being an actor, and from the fraternity, and the glitz and the glamour, you know all that. And then I also have a very homely and spiritual side to myself. I have a deep faith and I am a vegetarian. I don’t drink. You know, I have all those things, so, I always found it difficult to come across somebody, who would be able to understand both sides of me. And I really struggled with that and I was 34 and I was kind of ready to settle down because I had been living on my own for over ten years and just at that time, through family and through friends everything came up but it just happened and we met and it’s the best thing that happened in my life. And I feel she brings so much into my world and she balances me out and she makes me feel very normal and we have beautiful children. And I am very thankful for that.”
Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput tied the knot in July 2015. The couple are parents to two kids – a daughter named Misha and a son named Zain.
On the work front, the Kaminey actor will be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s next project titled Bloody Daddy. He will also headline the Amazon Prime series Farzi backed by Raj & DK.
