Are movies inspired by one’s life or do they influence one? The latter has definitely proven to be true in case of the newly wed Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor. His onscreen father Anupam Kher convinced him for an arranged marriage in the movie VIVAH. Shahid’s life took similar turns for him with Mira Rajput.
Mira Rajput, a 21 year old shy, yet intelligent girl-next-door is a student of Lady Sri Ram College in Delhi, doing her final year English (Honors). She belongs to a close knit family from Punjab who are ardent followers of a religious group – Radha Soami Satsang, Beas. Shahid’s father – Pankaj Kapoor coincidentally follows the same group religiously and hence this is where the match making or rather KISMET KONNECTION happened. Just like any other couple they met often, and got to know each other and after several conversations, they were FIDA over each other. With Shahid’s proposal, it was a sight of PHATA POSTER NIKLA HERO, which made Mira go hubba hubba! Their ISHQ VISHK moment happened and they got engaged on Makar Sankranti this year.
#ShahidkiShaadi was to happen at the end of this year in Greece, but the MAUSAM of their love couldn’t wait until the year was on its SHIKHAR. They got married on 7th July, 2015 at Chattarpur farm, followed by an after party at Oberoi, with a series of parties, mehndi, sangeet and lots of noise took place at the same venue.
Shahid and Mira married CHUP CHUP KE with only immediate families and close friends of the family being invited. Shahid’s wedding invite was simple yet classy, and elegant yet pompous. It was designed by Delhi-based Ravish Kapoor whose clientele include Shilpa Shetty, Hrithik Roshan, Ganesh Hegde and other celebrities. Shahid’s wedding invite was designed in pastel colours, in a cream and turquoise colour combination. His father is a tea lover, and any beginning with sweet turns out to be sweeter. The wedding invite of Shahid and Mira, had 4 honey bottles and two rectangular boxes filled with specially blended tea bags. Ravish also designed the Reception invite for the wedding couple.
A bridal shower-cum-bachelorette-party was organized by Mira’s friends at the same farm, followed by Mehndi and Sangeet. Both Mira and Shahid love music. Shahid did a CHANCE PE DANCE to impress Mira with his dancing skills on his Sangeet, while Mira was no less in wooing Shahid with her thumkas. A lot of videos of their dance performance leaked, yet our DIL MAANGE MORE to watch more happenings of their sangeet, also heard about heart-throb Shahid giving a kiss of love to his bride-to-be after their dance performance. Surely a heart-breaking news for all his fans.
The wedding was a Punjabi ceremony, where they also performed Anand Karal ceremony that highlights equality of the two states and hence no dowry demands of differences between caste, languages etc will be considered high. The dhols were beaten harder and the Nagadas were played to DIL BOLE HADIPPA shouts.
After the vows the newly wed appeared outside the farm heading towards Oberoi for the Reception. Mira dazzled in silver, pale pink colors at the ceremonies while Shahid looked royal like a R RAJKUMAR in creams and blacks. Shahid kept the beard too, that gave him a mature look, like that in his movie HAIDER. Kunal Rawal was the designer for the man and Anamika Khanna for the bride.
The Menu of the wedding was kept vegetarian as a lot of invitees were from the religious group that both the families were a part of. The showstopper was definitely the Paan. DEEWANE HUYE PAAGAL after eating this extra-ordinary Paan that contained a mixture of dryfruits, betelnut, elaichi, saunf and of course, the crushed betel leaf itself. It was supplied by Annu Mobile Paan Bhandaar from Jaipur. Coincidentally he is the same person who supplied paan for Saif-Kareena’s wedding too.
This is not FOOL & FINAL (read full). A grand Block buster party was hosted on 12th July in Mumbai. Shahid was in formals, while Mira stole the show in Manish Malhotra’s white & blue ensemble. Stars from the industry were spotted, Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut and many more. Shahid and his mother Supriya Pathak were filled with pride on seeing how well Mira greeted Amitabh Bachchan, who attended the party to bless the couple.
After a series of parties, the couple hit the gym. To burn those extra calories and get de-stressed before they plan their first holiday together. And yes they have not yet zeroed in on their Honeymoon destination. Of course it’s not 36 CHINA TOWN. Let’s explore more exotic places that a couple can hide out to, with Shahid’s honeymoon experience.
SayShaadi wishes the beautiful couple a very happy married life and a we-time for themselves, when the time pauses in their love and they can say – VAAH! LIFE HO TO AISI.
