Much has been made of the 13-year gap between Shahid and Mira, who just graduated from Delhi's Lady Shri Ram college. They are believed to have met through the religious group Radha Soami Satsang, of which both families are members. Shahid's mother Neelima Azim described Mira as "sweet and extremely affectionate" in an interview to mid-day in May.
The wedding venue:
The wedding, with rituals in traditional Punjabi style, will be held at the Trident Hotel in Gurgaon, contrary to early reports that a destination wedding was planned in Greece. 50 rooms have been blocked, among them the grand Presidential Suite - a 5,300 sq ft space that has two bedrooms, dining room, study, pantry, its own gym and pool and reportedly costs Rs 6,00,000 per night. The hotel has been prepping for the nuptials some days and Shahid's family were spotted arriving at the Trident on Sunday. Those photographed included his father Pankaj Kapur, step-mother Supriya Pathak, and step-siblings Sanaah and Ruhaan. Shahid, meanwhile, has wrapped his shoot for reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and was spotted at Mumbai airport on Monday morning.
Shahid Kapoor’s fans were under the impression that his wedding to Mira Rajput would take place in Greece in June. However, a source has told a Mumbai tabloid that the wedding will be in Delhi, in July.
"Shahid is definitely getting married in July. We’ve all been asked to be free that time," the source said.
Earlier, on March 26 actor Shahid Kapoor had confirmed that marriage, to Delhi-girl Mira, was "on the cards sometime towards the end of the year."
"She is a normal girl and I am a normal guy, and we should treat it like something normal and regular. It’s my personal space and I won’t get into the details. I’m just happy to announce it," Shahid added.
Mira is currently pursuing her graduation degree and has completed her schooling from Vasant Valley School. Apparently, Shahid met Mira through the religious group Radha Soami Satsang Beas.
From Bali to Greece, rumours about the wedding destination were doing the rounds ever since the 34-year old actor confirmed the marriage, which is said to be an arranged one.
