We all know that Shahid Kapoor had a huge contribution in making his own wedding arrangements. And he was finally asked about how he went about it.
I am 34, and my father (Pankaj Kapur) said, ‘You understand your life better. You are an actor and a star. So, you figure it out. If I take responsibility, and do ten things, then you will come and tell me, “Dad, you didn’t think about this or that (before doing it).’’’ My family was very involved in everything, but ultimately, he would ask me to take the final call. He believes that since I am a man now, I should take my own decisions.
I feel that a marriage is largely a girl’s thing. I have met very few guys to date who would say something like, “Mera na bachpan se sapna tha ki meri shaadi aise ho (Ever since I was a child, I have dreamt of a wedding like this).’’ But a lot of girls know how their wedding will be. So, when it comes to a wedding, and how it should be organised, it should be more about what the girl wants. It’s an important day for every girl, and they have, in all likelihood, thought about it for a long time. I just went with what I felt Mira (Kapoor) was comfortable with.
