Currently, in news for their splendid ramp walk at the Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) 2018, Bollywood couple Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor are undoubtedly one of the most-talked about pair in Bollywood.
The couple made its debut on the ramp as showstoppers for popular designer Anita Dongre with this appearance, although Shahid has been a part of LFW several times previously.
Shahid and Mira got married in 2015 and were blessed with a baby girl, Misha, on August 26, 2016. Interestingly, in a departure from the trend of love-marriages, theirs was an arranged marriage. Their chemistry can easily be understood by the fact that Shahid took time out for mother-to-be Mira from his busy schedule during the filming of Udta Punjab and took his wife to the Maldives for a vacation. Besides, the cute jodi is often spotted hand-in-hand on dinner dates, award ceremonies, and more, spending quality time together.
The Haider actor has been active in keeping his fans and well-wishers aware of the couple and its daughter’s activities. We must mention here that it was Shahid himself who took to Instagram to introduce Misha to the world.
Talking about their daughter, in an interview to PTI Mira Rajput said, “(We will) make sure Misha has her own space and not feel the pressure of being in a certain way because there are people around her (referring to fans.) I think she is growing to see her father work so hard. She will have to respect that and figure out how she is going to manoeuvre her way through that, and I will help her with that.”
She also explained how childhood is an experience that all children should be allowed to go through the way they want. “They should stay happy, they should have the freedom to do what they want. They should not feel that someone is getting into their space.”
Mira further added that Shahid has been showering all the love on their daughter and is even spoiling her.
“He loves her so much, I can’t explain it in words. Misha knows this and she uses it to her advantage. He (Shahid) has it in him to be very loving and caring and the love that you have for your children is different. And seeing the fatherly love was surprising for me.”
In another interview to IANS, Shahid revealed the strongest people in his life have been women, especially his mother Neelima Azeem who has been a single parent. He also calls his wife Mira and daughter Misha his “whole world” and says he couldn’t have been happier in his life than now.
It is known that Mira takes a keen interest in Shahid’s work, sometimes advising him on crucial decisions.
Being 13 years younger, Mira looks at things with a different perspective. However, they are very happy together.
Shahid and Mira made their first appearance together on the small screen with the much talked about chat show Koffee with Karan, post which their perfect chemistry was seen by all their loving fans. Moreover, the whole conversation between them and Karan Johar gave many a good reason to give arranged marriages a try. They also appeared on a chat show hosted by actress Neha Dhupia a few months ago.
The couple has never been shy in sharing their chemistry with the world. With an excellent photo-shoot for the cover of a popular journal last year, Shahid and Mira entered the league of some of the most stylish couples of the industry. – Jaideep Pandey with inputs from PTI and IANS
