So what was being billed as Shahid Kapoor‘s first big press meet post his wedding to Delhi girl, Mira Rajput, turned out to be an average and sober affair all thanks to Shahid’s plan of side stepping questions relating to his marriage at Shaandaar’s trailer launch held in Mumbai on Tuesday (August 11). And it did look like the entire cast and crew came well-prepared to duck ‘marriage’ questions.
Film’s producer Karan Johar kickstarted the proceedings with a request to the media to keep the questions related to the event. To everybody’s surprise, it was Alia and director Vikas Bahl who ended up being the maximum recipients of questions for the first five minutes.
Finally, when Shahid was asked a question about the most shaandar gift he received after marriage, Alia interjected almost immediately before Shahid could even reply ir think of replying.

“One second..Shahid’s shaandaar shaadi is done and now we will only talk about the marriage in Shaandaar,” shouted Alia.
When the scribe insisted on a quote from Shahid, Alia and Karan both vociferously joined in to protect him. The actor too meekly stayed silent.
When asked what ‘Shaandaar’ gift he got for his wedding, he didn’t reply. Alia again came to his rescue and said, “We are Shaandaar gifts of his wedding.”
On another occassion, when another lady journalist quizzed Shahid on whether Shaadi ka ladoo is a good or bad thing to eat, a reluctant Shahid with great difficulty finally said, “It’s great.”
Why so much of reluctance Shahid when everything is so Shaandaar in your life right now?
