I quite enjoyed Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput‘s mushy PDA on Koffee With Karan 5. However, a majority slammed him for propagating arranged marriage and cracking jokes about his major age difference with Mira on the show, but Shahid is unaffected by all these speculations.
In an interview with Midday, Shahid was asked to comment on the issue and he coolly replied:
A mainstream star having an arranged marriage is unique. It is not everyday that a Hindi film hero goes and marries someone no one even knows of. I am an actor. Most parts of my life are up for discussion, by default. It won’t stop whether I like it or not. If people cross the line, we do get displeased. But the line itself is wide. We can’t be touchy and say, bhai mere baare mein koi baat nahin karega.
And what about Mira? He said:
Mira seems pretty chilled out about what’s written. My wife decides what she wants to do, where she wants to go, how she wants to go and who is allowed in the house. It is natural. In fact, that’s how it should be.
