Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput are one of the most loved Bollywood couples. As we all know, the couple met in an arranged marriage setup and tied the knot in Delhi. But did you know that she was just 20 and he was 34.
In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Shahid mentioned how he was a “little embarrassed” but Mira was not affected by his stardom.
“First thing I noticed about Mira when me and her met, she was 20 years old, I was 34 and I was a little embarrassed. I was like ‘Okay, she is really young’. I was happy to meet anybody and connect. And when I met her, she was not at all affected by the fact that I was an actor,” he said.
He added, “That was the first thing that I was like, ‘Wow, she is all of 20 years old and she is just so normal and she really doesn’t care’. Because you can make out the difference when you meet people who are acting like they don’t care but they are very affected.”
In an earlier chat with Humans of Bombay, Shahid had talked about the “schizophrenic reality” he was living when he met Mira. “I was open to meeting someone I could settle down with. My biggest concern was I have a very schizophrenic reality – one side is all spiritual, meditation, no alcohol, and the other side is all about my acting and glamour. So, I thought the girl would understand only either of the two. That’s when I met Mira,” he said.
Shahid and Mira tied the knot in 2015. They have two children – daughter Misha and son Zain.
