When you go to bed after a long tiring day, don’t you sometimes smile on your own or get embarrassed recalling moments from your past? Well, we fondly call it ‘throwback’. And we, love to take you on celebrity throwbacks, every time we come across rare moments from our celeb’s past. And this one’s about our all-time favourite jodi, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor.

July 07, 2015. Almost all the ladies of India were all prepared for a major heartbreak when Shahid Kapoor 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.
While you must have seen many pictures from Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor’s Hindu wedding, there are a few pictures from Shahid and Mira’s Gurudwara wedding which are very rare. The muhurat 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 a peach and green suit, with a shell maang-teeka and very minimal makeup. And now, we present to you, a rare unseen picture from Shahid and Mira’s Gurudwara wedding as they took their chaar laava (four pheras)! Checkout the picture here:
Isn’t it amazing? Mira Rajput Kapoor is extremely attached to her father. Time and again, through posts, pictures and interviews she keeps on sharing how much she adores her parents. Last year (2018), Mrs Kapoor had taken to Instagram and posted a beautiful picture of herself and her father, who was planting a peck on her cheeks from her Gurudwara wedding. She had captioned the adorable picture as, “My strength and weakness #Dad.”
It was just a day before Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput's wedding, on July 06, 2015, when they had truckloads of fun at their sangeet ceremony. A picture of Shahid seated on his knee with Mira’ hands hurled in the air as she danced with her then soon-to-be, had created a stir amongst people. For their sangeet, Shahid had donned a red kurta with a Nehru jacket and a black churidaar, while Mira sizzled in an Anita Dongre lehenga. Anita Dongre had shared about Mira’s sangeet attire, “Mira opted for a customised beautiful yellow lehenga and paired it with a lovely peach choli. The outfit Mira chose perfectly complements her young and colourful personality."
For her haldi ceremony, Mira Rajput Kapoor had donned a mid-thigh slit yellow kurti and white lowers. She had opted for small danglers for her ears and had crowned her head and neck with white flower garlands. There are many pictures of Mira happily showing off her kalirey too! Here's one of them:
Just a few days back, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor had completed 4 years of marital bliss. To commemorate this special day in their lives, the duo had posted adorable anniversary messages for each other. While Mira posted a picture from their wedding and had written, “You make my world and me go round #happy4”, Shahid gave us a glimpse of the very first picture of Mira that he had saved on his phone. Sharing the same, Bollywood’s Kabir Singh wrote, “Her first picture I saved on my phone. And now almost every second picture has her in it. She is #life. I love you @mira.kapoor thank you for being you.” (Must Read: Faisal Khan Celebrated GF, Muskaan Kataria's Birthday On Nach Baliye 9 Set, Posts A Lovely Wish)
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 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. 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.
