It is time to bid adieu to winters and welcome the bright sun with a clear sky. Hence, a perfect weather to fly kites on the auspicious occasion of Makar Sankranti, which is a Hindu festival and it is celebrated across the nation. According to folklore and tradition, this day marks the end of gloomy winters and from now on, the days will be longer and nights will be shorter. The festival is known as a seasonal observance as well as a religious celebration that is celebrated with a lot of excitement. Like all of us, B-town also celebrates the festival with kite flying and eating tilgudd laddos. And Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor's wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor also makes sure that her kids, Misha and Zain stay rooted in this tradition.

Before, we take you further into the story, let us take a look at Shahid and Mira's Lohri celebration. On January 13, 2020, Mira had treated her fans with a sneak peek of her Lohri celebration. She had shared pictures of the same as her Instagram stories and it was all about the holy bonfire, eating popcorns and sweets.
On January 14, 2020, Mira took to her Instagram handle and shared a cute Insta story of her daughter, Misha flying the kite on their terrace. The little girl was dressed in a yellow kurta and teamed it with a white salwar. Her hair was beautifully braided at the back. Take a look at the picture below:
For those who don't know, recently, Shahid Kapoor had a minor accident during the shoot of his upcoming film, Jersey in Mohali, and because of which he had to return back to his home. On January 12, 2020, Shahid had taken to his Instagram handle and had penned a thank you tweet and had updated on his health. His tweet could be read as, “Thank you for all the concern. Yes I have got a few stitches but am recovering fast. #jersey has taken a little bit of my blood but a script this good deserves that in the least. Have a good one you all. Keep it real. Make it count. Spread the love. Humanity above all.”
Last year, Shahid had made an appearance on Neha Dhupia's show, No Filter Neha, and had shared a funny incident, wherein he literally had an identity crisis because his daughter, Misha had failed to recognise him as he had shaved off his beard. While we know men look different with a beard and without a beard, this was definitely one of the shocking incidents. He was quoted as saying, "I had an identity crisis because she didn’t recognize me! It was at Mira’s parents’ house, I reached there probably a day or two after they had reached because I was just finishing some stuff up, and she just refused to recognize me. She was what, 1.5 at that time and I was dying to hold her and meet her and run around with her and talk to her and she was with the maid taking a walk in the garden, and Mira had gone to meet some relatives, and I reached early and I wanted to take her in my arms and she came to me and started crying."

Shahid and Mira had welcomed their angel, Misha on August 26, 2016, and later, on September 5, 2018, they were blessed with a baby boy, whom they lovingly named, Zain. In one of Shahid's interviews with the Filmfare magazine, the actor had shared that he was self-oriented before embracing fatherhood. But things changed once he became a parent and valued his own parents' sacrifices more. He had even gone on record and apologised to his parents for being a difficult kid.
In another interview with the Filmfare magazine, he had shared that he prays every day for his daughter's well-being. He had also stated that holding a baby girl in his arms changed his perspective towards everything. He had said, "I didn't want anything to go wrong with her ever. I guess, being a man I always thought of as a man. But holding a baby girl gave me a new perspective. It changes everything."
