"I love the fact that I go back home to a normal person, who talks about normal things; and who sometimes tells me, 'I'm not interested in what's happening in your industry. Let's discuss what we are doing for lunch tomorrow or where are we going.' It's great and very healthy," said Shahid Kapoor

When actor Shahid Kapoor announced earlier this year that he was marrying Delhi-based Mira Rajput, industrywallahs were left a little puzzled. Who was Mira Rajput? It appeared that not only was she a Bollywood outsider, she was not even from Shahid's "social circuit", as the Shaandaar actor says in an interview to Hindustan Times. "Kya? Kaun? Yeh kaun hai?," was the general reaction, says Shahid. Now, three months after their July wedding, Shahid speaks about life with Mira.
Shahid, whose dating history includes actress Kareena Kapoor as well as (possibly) Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra, told Hindustan Times that he's loving his 'normal' life. "I used to tell myself, "I have been in relationships with celebrities, but maybe, it might be interesting to be with someone who isn't a celebrity." And one year later, I got married to someone who is a normal girl (laughs). I love the fact that I go back home to a normal person, who talks about normal things; and who sometimes tells me, "I'm not interested in what's happening in your industry. Let's discuss what we are doing for lunch tomorrow or where are we going." It's great and very healthy," he said. (Also Read: Days With Her Are Shaandaar: Shahid Kapoor Talks About Wife Mira)
Shahid and Mira met through the spiritual group Radha Soami Satsang, to which both their families belong. What about shaadi ke side effects? "I am in a very happy space. It's a new beginning. Everything changes after marriage. You become a man. You feel responsible. From now on, I will probably take more sensible decisions. I won't be rash. The sense of freedom has now turned into a sense of responsibility. Even when I am deciding on a film, I feel, 'If it goes wrong, it won't just impact me; it will affect my home and my wife as well'," said Shahid.

In his interview to the Hindustan Times, Shahid also said that being with Mira makes him want to be a better person. "Mira and I communicate very well. That's one of the strongest qualities about us. They always say, "Be with someone who helps you become a better person." She makes me want to be a better person. And that shows that she is a really good person."
The 'good news' question was asked as well, but the 34-year-old actor said that's a future project: "It's only been three months (smiles). There's time for that. We will think about it later."
