Shahid Kapoor’s marriage to the much younger Mira Rajput raised a couple of eyebrows back in the day. While many fans questioned the age gap between the two, others wondered how Mira would cope with the star life.
While Mira swiftly sank into the role of a star wife, fans were left stunned on how a girl from Delhi, who belonged to a normal family adapted to the spotlight so quick. A while after they were wed, Mira was spotted with security personal by her side and fans started questioning the reason why. They debated the need for her to have one, considering she wasn’t a star herself.
At a recent event, doting husband Shahid Kapoor, spoke about the outrage saying, “It was very normal with Mira and I am sure there were things that came along stardom which were difficult for her. Like for the first few times, I used to tell her that you should take a security personnel with you and she was like why and after good five or six times, she was like Shahid, people are randomly walking up to me and touching me and all. I was like now you know why? When she took the security person with her, the next day the headline was 'Why Mira needs a security personnel? She is No Star? But that comes with profession I am in and it's a professional hazard. Our biggest concern is Misha as we want to give her a normal life and she will always be. I will always ask this question to myself that I have burdened her because of who I am.”
Makes sense, doesn’t it now?
