A happy marriage is all about keeping love alive even after years of living together! It is not about how well you started off as a couple, but it is about how much effort you have put into to make your own 'happily ever after'. And Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor and his wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor continue to romance each other, even after four years of living together. It looks like yesterday when we had first seen the 21-year-old, Mira, who had walked out of the Mumbai airport holding the man of her life, Shahid's hand.

Before tying the knot, there was a phase in Shahid's life, wherein he was tagged with every leading lady in the industry. And it came as a huge shock when he had tied the knot in an arranged marriage. Shahid has witnessed his parents' broken marriage at a young age and he wanted to fill this void by creating a home for himself. When he had met Mira for the first time, the duo didn't stop talking for seven hours and somewhere they knew they are meant to be. The duo has redefined the meaning of true love for many of us and restored our faith in the institution of marriage.
Recently, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Shahid revealed the one thing that he loves about Mira. The actor shared that she is so comfortable in her own skin that she never looked out of the showbiz. She blended beautifully in the industry and became a part of it. Shahid also shared that he knew about this from the first day itself when they were done with the marriage rituals and had stepped out for the pictures. In that moment, he realised that Mira had her own individuality that made her extremely special. (Also Read: Smriti Khanna Pregnant With First Child 2 Years After Wedding?

He further explained, "Mira doesn’t feel the need to change and adjust. She is who she is, and people like her for that. She has never tried to be someone else and that’s a great thing about her. I always knew that she is going to find her own space and will become her own person."
Shahid and Mira are often questioned about their 14-year age gap. In an interview with the Vogue magazine, Mira had shared that his experience and fluidity towards life is what helps in their relationship. And that his experience and age difference helps her from gaining a fresh perspective.
In the same interview, Mira had also shared how she picked up life in Mumbai (that is completely different from the life of Delhiites). She had said, "I really didn’t think about it as so many challenges to overcome. The change from Delhi to Mumbai was actually a very pleasant one. I love South Bombay! In fact, we celebrated our anniversary with a meal at The Table in Colaba. I’ve also picked up on the way of life and way of dressing here. The first time I wore a pair of ripped jeans was after I got married!"
At a film festival in Mumbai, Shahid had finally opened up on people criticising his wife's decision of marrying early. The actor had said, "My wife is an amazingly mature, evolved human being who decided and was sure of who she wanted to marry at the age of 20. How many people have the conviction to do that? I think you spend your life well in your 30s like I have. I had no clue what I wanted to do in 20. It takes a lot of clarity and conviction even whether it’s work or marriage to decide that you want to do this at this stage in your life."
