When Shahid Kapoor met Mira Kapoor for the first time, he initially thought their introduction wasn’t going to go well. But, four years on and two children later, they’re one of the sought after couples around.

Cited in DNA India, it was during an interview with Vogue when husband and wife got candid about their first meet and life after marriage. The ‘Kabir Singh’ (2019) actor recollected he only thought their introduction would last 15 minutes, “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?’”

As for the mother of two, her first thoughts were more positive, “I’ve never been into movies, which I think was a good thing because following that first chat, when we actually got to know each other, it was for who we are…not for who others think we are,” adding, “He was just off Kaminay and very scruffy!”

Referring to his wife as his biggest critic, the ‘Padmaavat’ (2018) actor quipped how Kapoor wanted to be sure he wasn’t the same person as his character Tommy Singh from ‘Udta Punjab’ (2016), “We sat together on a sofa and somewhere around the interval she had moved five feet away to the other edge. She looked at me and said, ‘You’re not this guy, right? Is this guy anywhere inside you? Tell me now while I can still walk away!’”
