‘I CONNECT VERY WELL WITH MIRA’
Actor Shahid Kapoor opens up about how life has changed after marriage
He married Delhi girl Mira Rajput in July this year. And now, in his first interview post marriage, actor Shahid Kapoor talks about how life has changed since.
You seem to be in a nice, positive space after marriage...
Yes, I am in a very happy space. It’s a new beginning. Everything changes after marriage. When you are on your own, you feel, ‘it’s all good, life’s going on.’ But you feel responsible the moment you have someone to take care of. From now on, I will probably take more sensible decisions. I won’t be rash in my head. Even when I am deciding on a film, I feel like, ‘if it goes wrong, it won’t just impact me, it will affect my home and my wife’. That change happens. And I feel that change in a big way.
What’s the best thing about Mira?
Mira and I communicate very well. That’s one of the strongest qualities about us. It’s difficult to say just one thing. They always say, ‘be with someone who helps you become a better person.’ She makes me want to be a better person. I feel that around her.
When a star like you decided to marry a regular girl, many were left surprised. Are you aware of it?
Of course. I noticed everyone’s expressions, ‘kya, kaun, yeh kaun hai?’ And it isn’t about just about being a non-celebrity, she was also not part of my social circuit. But I don’t close myself to anything new. It felt very good. It doesn’t matter where or how two people meet. What matters is that two people connect! And I got that feeling (with Mira).
