Shahid Kapoor, mira rajput, coffee with Karan 7

Actor Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput Kapoor are one of the most celebrated couples in Bollywood. They are often seen selling couple goals and painting Instagram red with their love-soaked pictures. Shahid and Mira Rajput got married on July 7, 2015, in an intimate ceremony. Apart from Kapoor getting married to a woman outside the entertainment industry, the other thing that completely intrigued many was the age gap. 


For the unversed, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput have an age gap of 13 years. Speaking about the same on the latest episode of Koffee With Karan 7 where he came with his Kabir Singh co-star Kiara Advani, the Jersey star said, “When we got married, I was 34 and she was 20. So I had to approach it very differently. She needed to be cared for, with kid gloves. She had left everything in her life and had come to Bombay.

Shahid added that he was rather settled in his space and with the films, he was doing but for her, it was all too different. “I was very established in my space and films in general and this world of films can be very intimidating and judgemental,” he added.

Sometimes, I used to feel like I know too much and I think I can tell her what to do and how to be. But I used to sometimes do it from a place of wanting to protect her. This is because I had been in that place myself. I was this kid from Lokhandwala, who at 21, did well and didn’t know how to be,” the Jab We Met star stated.

Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Kapoor have two beautiful kids – Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor.
