Shahid takes pregnant wife Mira Rajput to Maldives


Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor and his beloved wife Mira Rajput are expecting their first child. The couple is spending quality time together holidaying in Maldives before they welcome their bundle of joy in a few months’ time.

Last week Shahid shared a picture of him with Mira during a car ride on Instagram and captioned it, ‘Drive time with Mrs Kapoor. #holidayvibes’. Now, the ‘Shaandaar’ actor has shared a video of them cruising on a yacht in the island nation.

In the short clip, Shahid says, "This is us riding along the coast of Maldives..." and pans the camera to show the breath-taking view of the ocean.   

Shahid and Mira tied the knot in July last year in a private ceremony. It was an arranged marriage. While there were speculations for some time that Mira was pregnant with the couple’s child, Shahid confirmed the news at the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘Udta Punjab’.

"Yes, I'm going to be a father," he had announced excitedly and loudly.

‘Udta Punjab’ is based on drug abuse in the interiors of Punjab. Shahid will be seen in the role of rock star Tommy Singh who gets caught up in a drug-related controversy in the film. It also stars Kareena Kapoor in the role of a doctor and Alia Bhatt as a Bihari migrant who wants to be a hockey player. Pynjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh makes his Bollywood debut with the film in the role of a police officer Sartaj Singh.

Directed by Abhishek Chaubey, the movie will release on June 17.

Shahid will also be seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon’ which also stars Saif Ali Khan and Kangana Ranaut. It is slated to hit screens on October 14.
