Shahid wants me to love myself for who I am: Mira
She is a Delhi girl who is still “getting used to Mumbai” after marrying actor Shahid Kapoor (above, with baby Misha). Now, mother to a baby girl, Mira Kapoor (right) says that her child is her priority, and that her husband is a “pillar of strength”.
Mira needs that support, because she knows that she’s constantly under the spotlight: “Everyone has something to say; everyone feels that they have the right to say something about me.”
In Shahid, she has found someone non-judgemental. “He really lets me feel like he loves me for who I am; and he wants me to love myself for who I am. So he is always making sure that I don’t question myself,” she says.
Being called “a star wife” doesn’t diminish her as a person, Mira feels. “My personality doesn’t get diluted by the fact that I’m married to Shahid. It’s only enhanced.” As for the rumours of her possible foray into acting, she says, “No. I have my hands full with Misha and I don’t think I can be juggling multiple things.”
That makes us recall the controversy over Mira’s comments about what it means to be a working mother. She responds, “I said something, and it was completely taken out of context… I have a lot of respect for women who work and who can juggle so many things.”
Even though I’m not an actor, somehow I’ve become public property... That’s something I am getting used to MIRA KAPOOR
