Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor make for a perfect pair in Bollywood. Despite coming from different fields, the duo has managed to create a beautiful home together and is joined by their adorable children, Misha and Zain Kapoor. Here’s a funny throwback to a time in the couple’s life when the doting wifey, Mira, was fed up with her hubby and had asked him to stay away in a hotel.
In an interview on Neha Dhupia’s chat show, Vogue BFF’s, Mira recalled a time in her life when her hubby, Shahid, was busy shooting the now-blockbuster film, Padmaavat. While the talented actor had surely put his heart and soul into bringing out his best performance, his hectic schedules had taken a toll on his wifey, Mira herself. The doting wifey had then revealed how Shahid’s altered time schedules disrupted their daughter, Misha’s playtime, as a result of which, Mira had asked Shahid to shift to a hotel. In her words:
“He was in a completely different time zone,” she told Dhupia. Mira revealed that Shahid would come home at 8 am and would sleep till 2 in the afternoon. So, she didn’t want him to be disturbed while he slept but their daughter Misha would be ‘playful’ during that time of the day. I completely get that he needs silence during those hours because it has been a tough night, but Misha is at her best at that time, wide awake and playful. Shahid wouldn’t say anything but I know its going to tire him and I know I can’t put too many restrictions on her either. That was getting to me at a point and that’s when I told him that I can’t take this anymore.”

While Mira Rajput is from a typical Sindhi family in Delhi, she entered a Punjabi family after marrying Shahid Kapoor. Obviously, the shift of cultures was evident. However, she had the welcoming support of her in-laws to help her adjust to the family. However, there was once a moment when Mira had given a quirky glimpse of her Punjabi-Sindhi fusion habits. Taking to her social media handle, Mira had once shared a picture of having cooked herself a classic Sindhi food item, Sel Bread, where she added a Punjabi touch by adding a lot of tomatoes and onions. Revealing the little history behind it, Mira captioned the post as:
“I’m as Sindhi as my Sel Bread! This is my mother’s version of her favourite childhood Sindhi breakfast. It’s taken a far more Punjabi twist over the years, with lots of tomatoes and onions. My home food is nothing without tomatoes; my maternal home that is. We can have it with just about anything. So call me a half this or half that but my stomach is definitely full!
For the unversed, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput have an age gap of 13 years. However, their bonding is unparalleled, and nearly nobody can make out how distinct they are as personalities. In an episode of the controversial celebrity chat show, Koffee With Karan, Shahid Kapoor had once opened up on this age gap between him and his wifey. He revealed how in comparison to his other past relationships, Shahid had to take things differently right from the start of his dating with Mira. Respecting how Mira had shifted to an entirely new place for his sake, Shahid mentioned:
“When we got married, I was 34 and she was 20. So I had to approach it very differently. She needed to be cared for, with kid gloves. She had left everything in her life and had come to Bombay. I was very established in my space and films in general and this world of films can be very intimidating and judgemental.”

Mira Rajput is quite outspoken and unapologetic in nature. However, one interesting and unheard talent of hers is that she is a talented pianist and even holds a degree in the same. Time and again, through her social media interactions, Mira had given glimpses of playing some of the most melodic tunes on her piano, which were simply unmissable. In addition, Mira had once revealed how she could play the tunes of music on the piano by simply hearing it once.
