    Shahid's father, Pankaj Kapur, and wife, Supriya Pathak, had met Mira over dinner in Delhi. Back then, Mira didn't know why she was meeting them. She wasn't interested in Bollywood and only met Shahid a few days later. When an arranged marriage was broached, they were awkward!

    "The first time we met, we spoke for seven hours. We were at a friends' farmhouse in Delhi. We went for a walk outside and the sun was setting behind her. I realised her eyes were not dark. They had a hazel tinge. That moment, I felt shayad main iss ladki se shaadi kar sakta hoon. But I also told myself, 'What are you thinking? Bees saal ki hai besharam!'" Shahid Kapoor said.

    At one point, Shahid asked Mira, 'Do you mind being married to a man 13 years older to you?' to which she said, 'Do you mind being married to a girl 13 years younger?' Her confidence wowed him. They met for another six months until they got engaged. When they were courting, Shahid was busy with the shoot of Udta Punjab. Soon after, they got married.

    The Kabir Singh actor had confessed, "The only thought going through my mind was, 'Here we are, sitting in this room on these two big sofas with nobody else around... Are we even going to last 15 minutes?" Mira Rajput, admittedly, was never much into movies. Secondly, age was a factor between the two; Shahid was 35 while Mira was 21 when they met. But nothing mattered when they slowly started to know each other.

    The road leading to the venue was cordoned off to keep gatecrashers as well as the paparazzi at bay. The walls of the farmhouse are 16-feet high and there was tight security.

    Calling it a blissful change, Shahid Kapoor had said he is a firm believer in the institution of marriage. "I believe in the institution of marriage. I think it's beautiful, but I don't think it should be enforced. What kind of relationship you want with the person you love is completely your decision. But I do believe one shouldn't run away from commitment," said Shahid.

    Shahid Kapoor had a message for all the would-be grooms as well. "In general, the groom should always be more understated than the bride... I don't know of any guy who grew up imagining what his wedding would be like while eight of 10 women did," he said, who sported a dapper look in an all-white suit.
