MICHAEL CAINE STALKED OWN WIFE!
HUNTED BEAUTY DOWN AFTER SEEING HER ON TV
EESTEEMED British acting icon Michael Caine has confessed that he met his wife of 46 years — after stalking her! The “Alfie” star was blown away when he saw his future bride, Guyanese-born beauty Shakira Baksh, in a coffee commercial in 1971. He decided on the spot to track her down and make her his own! “I saw this lady on the television in a commercial and fell in love instantly,” the two-time Oscar winner recalled.
With no clue as to who she was, Michael told a friend he’d leave immediately for South America — because he mistakenly believed she was Brazilian!
Excited by his plan, he and a couple of pals went out to celebrate at a disco where he told another buddy about the gorgeous stunner he was off to chase in Brazil the next day. But the friend set the now 85-yearold actor straight.
“He said, ‘Michael, she’s not Brazilian, she is Indian. And she lives on the Fulham Road right here in London!’” Michael laughed.
The “Get Carter” star sought Shakira out the next day, and within two years he was married to the model — who’s now 71 and still his life partner!
Shakira and Michael share a daughter, Natasha
