Happy Birthday Shahid Kapoor: When The Actor Was 'Semi-Embarresed' About Age Gap With Mira Rajput

-

If there is one actor who broke all the stereotypes and continues to be in a successful marriage with an outsider, it has to be Shahid Kapoor. The actor tied the knot with Mira Rajput, a non-Bollywood personality, in 2015. The duo had an arranged marriage where the two fell head-over-heels in love with each other.

However, what surprised his fans and everyone in the industry is the 14-year age gap the two share. While Shahid Kapoor was 33-34 years old when he met his future wife, Mira Rajput was just 20.

Everybody questioned Mira's decision and even called her a golddigger and someone who wanted to enjoy the perks of being a "Bollywood wife." However, the Jab We Met actor gave a solid response to all the trolls and revealed how she was the only person who genuinely appreciated him beyond his celebrity status.

Shahid Kapoor on the 14-year age gap between him and Mira

It was around the time when he was 33-34 years old that Shahid started to feel lonely. He started to crave companionship and was in search of someone genuine with whom he could spend the rest of his life.

At the same time, his parents arranged a meeting with Mira. She was under the impression that the Kapoor family had asked the Rajput clan to set up Mira and Shahid's younger brother.

However, the YouTuber was taken by surprise when she got to know the actual scene. Though the two had a 14-year age gap, they connected instantly.

Addressing the age gap, Shahid Kapoor opened up in an interview with Humans of Bombay and revealed he felt a hint of embarrassment initially.

'When I met her, she was just 20 and I was 34. First of all, I thought she was too young. I was semi-embarrassed at that time. But once we started talking, she was very mature and very sure of herself,' he said.

Reflecting on his 9-year marriage, the Kabir Singh actor compared marriage to a test match.

Shahid further added, 'You go through so many different phases, and you grow together. Children happen, and as we enter different phases, we will see each other and the relationship growing and evolving. You have to navigate it a little once in a while."

"You have to always be collaborative about the process. You will go through phases where you don't get along with each other, and you will have to sit down and understand each other. Once you cross that phase, you are so much stronger,' he concluded.

Shahid Kapoor on feeling protective about his kids

Being a celebrity, especially a father of two children, comes with its own pros and cons. As for the Teri Baaton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya actor, he admits being an overly protective father when it comes to keeping his kids, Misha and Zain, away from the limelight.

'I feel I have always been a little reserved. I have always liked to keep it less than more when it comes to my personal space being viewed. While I understand it's important for people to have a little perspective to get a sense of who I am, I have to be protective of it," said the actor.
