Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor had given his fans a pleasant and shocking surprise at the same time when he announced his marriage to a Delhi-based college girl, Mira Rajput, back in 2015. Did you know when Shahid and Mira met for the first time, they talked for about seven hours?
Recently, in an interview with a leading daily, Shahid Kapoor's mother, Neliima Azeem talked about the time when Shahid realised his love for Mira and talked to Neliima about it. She mentioned that Shahid was not quite sure how she would react, considering both of them (Mira and Shahid) belonged to very different worlds.
Speaking about Shahid's confession of love for Mira, Neliima said, “He was very shy when he told me. He is like that, he is very careful and he was not sure how I would react to it, but I got very excited. He showed me her picture and after that, we met. I met Mira and she was so sweet, young, and full of enthusiasm, love, and affection. I fell in love with her at first sight.” Neliima also lauded her daughter-in-law, Mira and mentioned how ‘sensible and balanced’ and ‘very intelligent’ she was for someone her age, at the time of getting married, as quoted by Pinkvilla.
Neliima further spoke about how Mira adjusted wonderfully to showbiz even after having nothing to do with it. She said, “She is so sensible for her age, it is unbelievable how she has adjusted to a film actor’s life. She is such a young mother and she is so good at everything. More than anything else, she is a very good friend and companion to Shahid.”
Earlier, in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Neliima Azeem had bared it all on the equation that she shares with her daughter-in-law, Mira and her parents. She had said, "With Mira, I have all the understanding of what two women who are on the same page can have and who share the same life and the same people. And we are both cool. I understand her because she is young. She has got kids at a very young age. She is extremely intelligent and individual. Yet she is so kind and giving. Mira is someone who doesn’t try to get attention or seek that highlight. She is just not a brat from any side. She is very well brought up."
Talking further about Mira's parents, Neliima had said, "Another reason why I feel I understand her a lot is because I am very good friends with her mom and so with her father too. Her father and I get along very well. We have a similar sense of humour and a similar personality in certain ways. But it’s her mom with whom I am developing a deeper relationship."
It was Mira's saasu maa, Neliima Azeem's birthday on December 4, 2020, and her loving daughter-in-law, Mira Rajput Kapoor had penned the sweetest birthday wish, calling her the world's best dadi and her forever friend. Mira had penned a cute note for her mother-in-law, Nelimma Azeem on her birthday. She had written, "Happy Birthday to the World’s Best Dadi. Pied piper to the kids, lioness mama to her cubs and my forever friend. We love you Mom. Stay happy, keep dancing through life and may your gift of storytelling never tire."
