Praising Meera, Karan asked Shahid, “Was your decision taken after due consideration? Also no one was left.” Shahid asked, “A conscious decision? Is marriage ever a deliberate decision?” When Kiara Advani, who joined the show with Shahid, said, “Of course, in a way it is”, Shahid told her, “You will realize how aware you are when you get there.”
Shahid went on to say, “I think when you’re actually getting married it’s a bit of an out-of-body feel. So it was very easy for me. I have two very different sides of my own. One clearly.” People look at me as an actor and from fraternity and glitz and glamour, all that. And then I have a very domestic and spiritual side of my own.”
He continued, “I have a deep faith and I am a vegetarian, I do not drink alcohol. I have all those things. So I always found it difficult to meet someone who was able to understand both sides of me. I really Struggled with it. I was 34 and I was ready to settle down because I had been living on my own for more than ten years.”
Shahid also said, “At that time everything came out through family and friends. But that’s exactly what happened and we met and it’s the best thing in my life. And I think she’s a lot in my world.” She brings me up, and she balances me out. She makes me feel so normal and we have beautiful kids. So I’m very grateful for that.”
Shahid tied the knot with Mira in July 2015 in an intimate ceremony in Gurgaon. They welcomed their daughter Misha Kapoor in August 2016 and their son Zain Kapoor in September 2018.
Shahid will next be seen in the action thriller Bloody Daddy, the official Hindi remake of French film Nuit Blanche. He will also make his OTT debut with Prime Video’s upcoming series Fergie. Helmed by Raj and DK, the series also stars actor Vijay Sethupathi in a lead role.
