Shahid Kapoor’s arranged marriage to Mira Rajput in 2015 is an example of what a typical Indian nuptial is made of. Complete strangers then, the two came into their own over the years. And now after six years and two kids later, they probably stand as one of the most loved star couples in Bollywood.

As Shahid celebrates his 40th birthday today, wife Mira wished her actor husband by sharing an adorable click on Instagram. She wrote along, “I like me better when I’m with you. Happy 40th to the love of my life. Any wiser and I’m in trouble. Lucky me you don’t look it and lucky you, I don’t show it. I love you baby.”

Reminiscing how Mira is a woman of deeper and better conversations, Shahid had told Vogue, “We’ve gone to parties where I’ve known many more people than she has. But I’ve always found her having more intense conversations with people she’s met less than half an hour ago!”

When Shahid and Mira first met, Shahid was enjoying the success of Kaminey, hunting for a bachelor-pad in Mumbai, while Mira was just out of college. Both their families connected over being associated with Radha Soami Satsang Beas.

Shahid and Mira are 13 years apart in age. Confessing how it helped them both find different perspectives, Mira added, “He’s lived longer, so if anything, I can benefit from his experience, and he can benefit from my fresh perspective.”

Mira further revealed in the same interview, how Shahid’s presence in her life helped her open up. “The first time I wore a pair of ripped jeans was after I got married! His fluidity towards life is another quality I love. It’s helped me ease up a lot,” Mira said.

Crediting Mira for being a strong critic of his work, Shahid concluded, “Even though it’s just been four years (now six), a large part of who I am has been formed since the day we got married.”

On the work from, Shahid will next be seen in Jersey that releases on November 5 this year. He is set to make his digital debut with Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK’s yet-to-be-titled quirky thriller, that’ll stream on Amazon Prime Video.

Here’s wishing Happy Birthday Shahid Kapoor!
