Shahid Kapoor rubbishes reports of his June wedding


Media was abuzz with reports of Shahid Kapoor tying the knot with fiancee Mira Rajput in a destination wedding in Greece on June 10, but the actor has brushed aside such reports.

The ‘Haider’ actor told media persons at the 16th International India Film Academy (IIFA) Awards that he was not getting married in June. “It is surprising how others know more about my wedding than I do. I want to tell the people out there that like I update them about my films, I will also update you about my personal life,” Shahid said.

Speculations were rife that Shahid was planning to take a break after the IIFA Awards ceremony to prepare for his impending marriage.

However, Shahid did confirm that he would be getting married later this year. It may be mentioned that before words started doing the rounds about the actor’s marriage in June, earlier reports suggested that the wedding was to take place in December. So, perhaps the wedding is indeed scheduled for the year end.

Shahid and Mira got engaged on January 14 this year in the presence of family and close friends.

In fact, Mira, a Delhi University graduate, had hosted a bridal shower in a Chattarpur farm house in Delhi which was also attended by Shahid.

Son of veteran actors Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azeem, Shahid was earlier in a relationship with Kareena Kapoor, who has now married Saif Ali Khan. He was also in a relationship with Priyanka Chopra for a brief period.
