Sada Saubhagyawati Raho- is what you will hear most people blessing you when you get married to ‘your special someone’. When two people get married, it is not only about all the love and being mushy. They are partners-in-crime and partners-for-life, who will conquer the whole world together! Love and marriage come with all sorts of sacrifices and it is this one day when women (and sometimes men too) have to forgo their love for food and pray for one another’s long life. Any guesses as to what we are talking about? Karwa Chauth it is and star wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor is in full celebratory mode!

July 07, 2015. Almost all the ladies of India were all prepared for a major heartbreak when Shahid Kapoor had appeared with his ladylove, Mira Rajput, hand-in-hand, to pose in front of the media. Theirs was an extremely intimate wedding with only their family members and close friends in attendance. The late morning of July 07, 2015, was kept for ShaMira’s (as their fans fondly call them) Gurudwara wedding and the afternoon was meant for their jaimala and Hindu wedding. Take a look at both the pictures from their wedding day.
Now that we have their saath janmo ka bandhan all covered, let us give you some Karwa Chauth update about Shahid Kapoor’s beautiful wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor. In case you all are wondering what this beauty is upto, shutterbugs recently papped Mira outside her house looking gorgeous in traditional! For her Karwa Chauth celebrations, Mira wore a bandhni-print pink saree with matching blouse and simple jewellery, sans any bangles. One look at Mira and those who believe in being minimalistic will take major cues from here!
Doesn’t she look great? To take you on a throwback mode, Mira Rajput Kapoor and her superstar hubby, Shahid Kapoor had celebrated their first Karwa Chauth in 2015, three months after their wedding. As per reports, Mira was all excited as she had prepared for it for almost a week. Shahid had taken a day off from work to spend time with her. Later in the evening, Bollywood’s Kabir Singh had uploaded an adorable photo of the two, as he took his wife on a dinner date, captioning the picture as "Dinner time with Mrs Kapoor.” So sweet!
Coming back to their wedding, While you must have seen many pictures from Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor’s ‘big day’, there are a few pictures from Shahid and Mira’s Gurudwara wedding which are very rare. The mahurat of Shahid and Mira's wedding was 11 am when they had a simple Gurdwara wedding. With only their closest of members were in attendance, Shahid had opted for a white kurta-pyjama along with a safa, while his then-newbie bride, Mira had donned a simple peach and green suit, with a shell maang-teeka and very minimal makeup. Here’s a rare unseen picture from Shahid and Mira’s Gurudwara wedding as they took their chaar laava (four pheras)!

When we all had heard that Shahid Kapoor is getting married to a girl who is not from the industry, we all had wished if it were us. But alas! By the time we thought so, Shahid was already a taken man! In a 2015 interview with the India Today, Shahid had stated, “I noticed everyone's expressions, "Kya? Kaun? Yeh kaun hai? (What? Who? Who is this person?)" And it was not just about being a non-celebrity; Mira was not part of my social circuit either. But I don't close myself to anything new. It doesn't matter where or how two people meet.”
Shahid had further continued, “What matters is if two people connect. And I got that feeling [with Mira]. Sometime back, I used to tell myself, "I have been in relationships with celebrities, but maybe, it might be interesting to be with someone who isn't a celebrity." And one year later, I got married to someone who is a normal girl (laughs). I love the fact that I go back home to a normal person, who talks about normal things; and who sometimes tells me, "I'm not interested in what's happening in your industry. Let's discuss what we are doing for lunch tomorrow or where are we going." It's great and very healthy.”
In a 2017 event, Mira Rajput Kapoor had opened up about being a homemaker and her marriage with Shahid Kapoor. Speaking about why she opted for an arranged marriage, the star wife had stated, “Why not (go for an arranged marriage)? You have to meet someone in some way! It worked for us so beautifully because both of us laid our cards in the open in the beginning. We were ourselves. There was a different kind of discovery after marriage but there was no negative surprise.” Further talking about her marriage, Mira had stated, “I understood the role I had to take and he (Shahid) understood that he had to become a part of my life. Both of us have given and taken a lot from each other and we have become more wholesome. It’s two halves that make a whole.” The two are also parents to two adorable babies, Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor.
