Bollywood actor marries sweetheart in intimate ceremony
Following months of hype and wonder, Shahid Kapoor married his darling Mira Rajput yesterday. The occasion was an intimate ceremony, carried out as per the customs of Arya Samaj which both families adhere to, in a farmhouse on the outskirts of Delhi with only around 40 close friends and family present. Unlike most other Bollywood weddings, the Haider star made it evident that he wanted to enjoy his moment in private, with heavy security keeping out gatecrashers and press, whilst even guests were requested not to click photos of key moments throughout the events. Shahid and Mira or ‘Shira’ as their guests referred to them as, posed as man and wife at the Trident Hotel in Gurgaon – and what a fine couple they make, with 21-year-old Mira looking ravishing in a blush pink lengha by Anamika Khanna and 34-year-old Shahid wearing a smart white sherwani by Kunal Rawal.
Then came the post-wedding festivities in grand style that evening at the Oberoi Hotel in Gurgaon, amidst 500 guests. The night before, the couple and their guests danced the night away at the sangeet, where Shira danced to the actor’s well known songs like Mauja Hi Mauja. Although many hearts will be broken now that Shahid is officially hitched, his fans can still look forward to the pics of a lavish reception to be held in Mumbai on July 12th, where B-towners are sure to grace the affair with their presence.
