I go back home to a normal person, Shahid on wife Mira


Shahid Kapoor got married to a girl who is not related to Bollywood in any way. Shahid has married a non-filmy girl and he is in a happy space today. The ‘Haider’ actor shocked one and all when she declared his marriage to Mira. There were various expressions in people’s face. "Kya? Kaun? Yeh kaun hai?," was the general reaction, says Shahid during an interview. It has been three months Shahid and Mira got married.

In his life, Shahid dated Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra but now he is enjoying his normal life. "I used to tell myself, "I have been in relationships with celebrities, but maybe, it might be interesting to be with someone who isn't a celebrity." And one year later, I got married to someone who is a normal girl (laughs). I love the fact that I go back home to a normal person, who talks about normal things; and who sometimes tells me, "I'm not interested in what's happening in your industry. Let's discuss what we are doing for lunch tomorrow or where are we going." It's great and very healthy," he said.

Shahid and Mira met through the spiritual group Radha Soami Satsang, speaking about life after marriage, the actor said, "I am in a very happy space. It's a new beginning. Everything changes after marriage. You become a man. You feel responsible. From now on, I will probably take more sensible decisions. I won't be rash. The sense of freedom has now turned into a sense of responsibility. Even when I am deciding on a film, I feel, 'If it goes wrong, it won't just impact me; it will affect my home and my wife as well'," said Shahid.

Shahid also said that being with Mira makes him want to be a better person. "Mira and I communicate very well. That's one of the strongest qualities about us. They always say, "Be with someone who helps you become a better person." She makes me want to be a better person. And that shows that she is a really good person."
