Actor Shahid Kapoor revealed why he married Mira Rajput after appearing on Koffee with Karan season 7 episode 8. The recent episode of the talk show hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar is out on Disney+ Hotstar. In the show, Karan called Shahid’s decision to marry Mira a ‘very smart thing in his life’ and then rephrased it by saying ‘it was a correct life beat for him’.

Complimenting Mira, Karan asked Shahid, “Was yours a conscious decision? Also there was no one left.” Shahid asked, “Conscious decision? Is marriage ever a conscious decision?” When Kiara Advani, who joined Shahid on the show, said, “Of course, in a way it is”, Shahid told her, “When you get there you will realise how conscious you are of what’s going on.”
Shahid then continued, “I think it’s a little bit of outer body experience when you are actually getting married. So for me, it was very simple. I have two very distinct sides to myself. One is obviously what people see of me being an actor and from the fraternity and the glitz and the glamour, all that. And then I also have a very homely and spiritual side to myself.”
He continued, “I have a deep faith and I am a vegetarian, I don’t drink. I have all those things. So I always found it difficult to come across somebody who would be able to understand both sides of me. I really struggled with that. I was 34 and I was kind of ready to settle down because I had been living on my own for over ten years.”
Shahid also added, “Just at that time through family and through friends everything came up. But it just kind of happened and we met and it’s the best thing that happened in my life. And I feel she brings so much into my world, and she balances me out. She makes me feel very normal and we have beautiful children. So I am very thankful for that.”
Shahid tied the knot with Mira at an intimate ceremony in Gurgaon in July 2015. They welcomed their daughter Misha Kapoor in August 2016 and their son Zain Kapoor in September 2018.
Shahid will be next seen in the action thriller Bloody Daddy, which is an official Hindi remake of the French film Nuit Blanche. He will be also be making his OTT debut with Prime Video’s upcoming series Farzi. Helmed by Raj and DK, the series also has actor Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role.
