When asked what was so special about the lovely young lady who had captured his heart, the actor said, "I'll refrain from getting into details. I hope you respect that. I'm here today and I thought it was important for me to acknowledge it in front of the media. Other than that I'm just a normal guy, she's just a normal girl and we should treat it like that. I'm very happy."
Shahid, 34, and Mira met through the Radha Soami Satsang, a religious group to which their families belong.
Little is known about Mira, who is believed to be in her third year at Delhi's prestigious Lady Shri Ram College. Shahid's father, actor Pankaj Kapur, reportedly met Mira's family at their residence in the Delhi suburb of Chhatarpur some days ago.
Shahid was last seen as the titular character in Haider, director Vishal Bhardwaj's desi adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. He's currently filming Shaandaar with actress Alia Bhatt and Udta Punjab, which co-stars Alia again and his ex-girlfriend Kareena Kapoor.
