Shahid Kapoor had a great start to the year with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat. This was Kapoor’s first film to earn over INR 100 crores and he managed to stand out even though Ranveer Singh had a meatier role. Now the actor has just wrapped up his next film – Batti Gul Meter Chalu. Based on the issue of electricity theft in rural India, this upcoming Hindi movie also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam.
While Shahid is busy with his professional commitments, there’s a lot for him to look forward to in his personal life. He and his wife Mira are expecting their second child and the couple hosted a baby shower for close friends and family at their home in Mumbai. Since it was a private affair, not many celebrities from the industry were invited. Shahid’s half-brother – Ishaan Khattar – showed up with his Dhadak co-star, Janhvi Kapoor and pictures of the duo all over the internet. The Hindi remake of Sairat is releasing this Friday and the lead actors are traveling across the country to promote the film.
Mira Kapoor is currently in her third trimester and the baby is due in September. This will be the couple’s second child as their daughter Misha was born on August 27, 2016. Shahid and Mira have been married for three years now and it was an arranged marriage. While there have been reports of Mira joining Bollywood she has denied them and stated that after her kids are a bit older, she would start a business of her own.
