Mira and I never dated, Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor gets candid and talked about his first meeting with Mira, Mira’s only condition to marry Shahid and how the 35-year-old is getting ready for fatherhood. Shahid Kapoor spoke in length about his personal life in an interview with Times of India.

Shahid said that he and Mira never dated, “Mira and I never dated. We just met three to four times and decided to get married”, the ‘Udta Punjab’ actor said.

Shahid reveals about his first meeting with his wife, “I was about to start shooting for Udta Punjab when I first met Mira. I remember I went to her house for the first time and I was in the Tommy zone. So, I had a ponytail, drop-crotch track pants and weird shoes on. I recall getting out of the car in this avatar at Mira's farmhouse in Delhi. Her dad came out to welcome his son-in-law to be. He saw how I was dressed and he surely thought - 'God what is my daughter getting married to.'

He barely looked at me, then whispered 'Come inside' and went away. It was adventurous of Mira to agree to marry a guy who looked like Tommy. I also remember telling her - 'I am going to colour my hair.' You should have seen her face. She is this 20-something girl coming out of LSR College and she was like 'What?' And when I told her I am playing a character called Tommy, she said, 'That is not the name of a guy, it is the name of a dog.'”

Mira has saved Shahid’s name on her phone as Tommy. “So, when I call her, it says: 'Tommy calling'”, quips Shahid.

Before getting married, the only condition Mira laid before Shahid was that he should not colour his hair, “The only condition she laid down for me was that when we get married, I will not have coloured hair. She made me promise that when we marry I would sport my normal hair colour. She warned me not wear my hair red on our marriage day. When I married her a month later, I made sure I behaved myself and looked like a decent groom.

I must confess that I was tempted to marry with red hair. I thought that my kids would see my wedding album and say - 'Our dad was cool. He was so into his work.' But, now I'm domesticated and I listen to everything Mira says”.

Shahid is very protective about Mira and his soon-to-be born baby, “Now, it is all about Mira. She is the one who is pregnant. She is very young and I think it is not easy. I just want to be with her, around her. Around the time the baby is due, I will not shoot for at least a month. I want to be there in the last few days of the pregnancy. I want to be there when the child arrives and enjoy these moments, as these are feelings you experience perhaps once or twice in a life”.

Shahid is keen to have more babies.

“I don't want to speak too much about it, maybe one or two babies will happen. Some of it has to be private. I want to soak it in and I want to be there. I have heard star kids complain that their parents were not there much in their childhood. I do not want to be that guy”.
