MUMBAI: Shahid Kapoor’s getting married on Tuesday 7 July in Delhi.
The wedding is expected to be attended only by close family and friends.
Says one of Shahid’s privileged buddies from his inner circle, “It’s not going to be a large lavish wedding, and his former girlfriends are certainly not invited, as reported by some media sections. Both Shahid’s and Mira’s family wanted the wedding to be a really quiet affair.”
Asked why Shahid has chosen to marry someone far younger than he, his buddy defended. “No one within the two families is commenting on the age difference. Shahid and Mira are perfect together. This is ek-duuje-ke-liye stuff.”
The wedding in Delhi on July 7 is to be followed by a reception in Mumbai.
“That’s where you might bump into Shahid’s ex-es. But at the wedding ? No way!”
Incidentally, Mira, we are told, is not an avid movie watcher and has not seen too many of Shahid’s films either.
“What Shahid likes best about Mira is that she isn’t awed by his stardom. In some ways this alliance is like Madhuri and Dr Nene’s alliance in reverse. He hadn’t seen a single film of Madhuri’s when they met. Mira has seen some of his films. So she’s not as clueless about her spouse’s work as Dr Nene.”
