The two tied the knot at a farm house on the outskirts of the national capital.
Shahid Kapoor opted for a white kurta-pyjama and a safa (turban) while Mira wore a green and pink salwar-kurta with a heavy embellished dupatta wrapped around her head. She teamed it up with a statement maang tikka on her forehead and minimal make-up.
This was an arranged marriage for Shahid and Mira and the ceremony was attended by 40 guests.
The ‘Vivah’ actor wanted it to be a close-knit affair and only the couple’s family members and few friends were invited to be part of the ceremony.
Shahid Kapoor, from the beginning, kept the details of his marriage under wraps as he feels their wedding is a “normal and regular affair”.
“I refrain from getting into details. I thought that since I am here today, it was important to acknowledge it in front of the media, so I am doing that. Other than that, she is a normal girl and I am a normal guy, and we should treat it like something normal and regular. It’s my personal space and I won’t get into the details,” Shahid had said.
The wedding will now be followed by a reception bash at The Oberoi, Gurgaon, which will again be attended by family members and close friends. Read – Shahid Kapoor dances with fiancee Mira Rajput at their sangeet
