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).

They al­ways say, ‘be with some­one who helps you be­come a bet­ter per­son.’ Mira makes me want to be a bet­ter per­son Shahid Kapoor,
