Mira Rajput Kapoor Early Life
Mira Rajput was born on 7th September, 1994 in Delhi, India. Her Punjabi and Hindu parents were Vikramaditya Rajput and his wife Bela Rajput. Her father was a businessman and her mother was a housewife. Mira Rajput is the second daughter in a five-person family, a sister to her other two sisters, Priya Rajput Tulshan, the older, and Noorjehan Rajput Wadhwani, the younger. When she was a little girl, she was known as a shy but bright and intelligent student. Her intelligence earned her a completely successful life, in which she was always bold and brave to freely express herself.
Mira completed her education at Vasant Valley School, New Delhi. Then, she joined Lady Shri Ram College for Women in New Delhi to continue her studies in English. Her intelligence brought her the 10th rank in Delhi University’s CATE exam in English. After accomplishing her studies, she pursued working her internship in the United Nations. She has also appeared in a few public events in different occasions. However, these days, she prefers to focus on her married life and her children.
Before dating her husband, she had been in a short relationship with the model Aditya Lal, her former classmate, which started passionately when she was in her third year but did not last long. Their relationship ended two years after. When she was only 16 she met Shahid Kapoor, a Bollywood actor who is 14 years older than her, at the house of a mutual family friend for a Sufi concert since their fathers liked Sufi music. In 2015, she started dating him and then she got engaged with Shahid. The couple’s family members, who are all members of the ‘Radha Soami Satsang Beas’ were introduced to each other by their Guruji and began to know each other at one of the Radha Saomi religious events in Beas, after their marriage was finalized.
At the beginning, Mira was totally doubtful and skeptical about marrying a movie star. However, she was convinced by her elder sister and agreed to marry Kapoor and add his family name to that of hers. They officially got married on 7th July 2015 in a private ceremony, and their marriage became even happier with a cute daughter named Misha (a named coined by mixing initials of her father’s name, “Sha”hid, and her mother’s, “Mi”ra) Kapoor, was born one year after their marriage. The breaking news of their first child was firstly posted on Twitter in 2016 by Shahid. Mira and Shahid also have another child, which was born later on in 2018, this one a boy named Zain Kapoor, whose news of arrival was posted on his father’s Instagram, Shahid. The post showed Misha beside balloons saying that she will soon be a sister to her parents’ second child.
Mira Rajput has a height of 165 cm, weight of 55 kg, body measurements of 34-28-34 inches, shoe size of 8 inches, and dress size of 12 inches. Her hair and eyes are black. She loves collecting shoes and has a large selection of shoes from brands with various shapes and colors. Her other obsession is her phone! Shahid has said in one of his interviews that he is Mira’s second husband, and her first husband is her phone!
Her husband, who she loves to call with the name Shadoo, once gave her a diamond ring which costs INR 23 Lakh (about $33,000). She has been a strict and lifelong vegetarian and loves eating Punjabi foods. Her husband is also a vegetarian, a belief which comes from their common Radha Soami origin. Mira’s favorite cuisine is Thai and restaurants she likes to have meal at are Ego Thai in New Delhi and Dakshinayan in Mumbai.
She also watches TV serials and is a fan of Master Chef Australia and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Similar to her husband, one of her hobbies is listening to music, and her favorite singers are Avril Lavigne, Beyonce, and Demi Lovato. Her zodiac sign is Virgo. Her favored destination to travel to is Mykonos in Greece. She does not like smoking. She was born and raised in Delhi but her roots are in Punjab.
After her marriage she deleted a number of her friends and followers on her social media in order to keep them private. While the couple are affectionately in love and this is reflected in their shared photos, Mira generally does not like to be seen on social media and share her life online. Salman Khan is Mira’s mostly favored actor. Mira and Shahid went to see the movie “Bajraangi Bhaijaan” as the first movie they saw after their marriage, a movie in which her favorite actor, Salman Khan, has played. She is seen in various talk shows and TV commercials, but her fame is mostly owed to her husband’s fame and she became the center of attention after she got married. Actually, she is mostly seen beside her husband, accompanying him in various movie promotions, wedding ceremonies and TV programs.
Mira is very warm and sociable. She prioritizes her family first and has a friendly and close relationship with her husband’s family. The cordial relationship is mutual and they love her, too. Shahid even says that she is closer to his family than he, himself, is. Along with her love for her family and the way she expresses it, a large number of Mira’s fans, especially working mothers, were disappointed and harshly criticized her when she expressed her intensive comment about how she like to stay at home and be a mother rather than rushing off to work. She asserted that the new wave of feminism is destructive, as it is against men and unrelated to the main essence of feminism, which is man-woman equality. Her bravely expressed thoughts happened to be a great controversy afterwards.
