Shahid Kapoor was one of the most eligible bachelors of Bollywood when he decided to go for an arranged marriage and marry the Delhi girl Mira Rajput. Separated by an age gap of thirteen years and almost no similarity, this wedding news came as a surprise for most of his fans. Shahid Kapoor had a series of relationships with famous Bollywood actresses like Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. Though the rumors also say Sonakshi Sinha, Amrita Rao, and Sania Mirza, it is likely for a heartthrob to be associated with every heroine he works with. Shahid Kapoor also had to battle many rumors as long as he was single.
Mira Rajput was not even remotely related to films. The English Literature student Mira Rajput was just twenty-one years old when she got married to SHhaid Kapoor. Soon the couple was blessed with a daughter named Misha who is over three years old now. They also have a son named Zain Kapoor who turned one just some weeks ago. Shahid Kapoor is now a complete family man who loves spending his spare time with the family and being a dutiful father to his children Misha and Zain.
He is often seen playing and hanging out with his children keeping them close to the real side of life. According to Shahid Kapoor, he also married a non-filmi girl for the same reason as he wanted to see the other side of life as well. According to the ‘Haider’ actor, Mira Kapoor has brought the necessary balance to his life. In a recent interview with a film magazine Filmfare, Shahid Kapoor revealed how parenthood changed his life. He said that although he believed he was selfless when he did not have children, becoming a father completely changed his views about himself.
According to Shahid Kapoor, he always keeps his family and children first. He said that being a parent has made him realize the efforts and struggles of his parents even more as he can now relate to them. Shahid Kapoor candidly confessed that personal space did become an issue after he became a parent and he was still struggling to have his own breathing space.
