To start with, thank you Shahid and Mira for endorsing the concept of arranged marriages in the most beautiful way on ‘KWK’. Mira, from being just a gorgeous stranger to owning the couch with love (literally), she is definitely one witty and lovable woman. She never for a moment appeared strained or awkward, instead, her healthy flirting was casually pleasing (for Shahid!) and damn adorable for us.
‘Couch Couch Hota Hai’
On the other side, Shahid was cool, chilled-out, candidly accepted that he even called his exes to the wedding. Now, that sounds really courteous!
More so, since Shahid-Mira wedding, we had always wondered what made Shahid fall in love with a ‘normal’ Delhi girl after having dated glamorous actresses like Kareena and Priyanka. But yesterday, all our doubts dwindled away after Mira’s stupendous performance on Karan’s show.
Mira is undoubtedly Shahid’s soulmate and here’s why we truly believe this:
1. They have the same religious beliefs.
Isn’t it amazing for a couple to be spiritually inclined in the same direction? Moreover, their common belief in religion became the root of their friendship. They met just in a typical ‘Vivaah’ spirit. Before even they knew each other, their families connected on a deep note.
In the times, where we are wholly taken by the instant hook-up culture and complicated dating moves, it is amazing to see a star going in a traditional way.
2. The first time they met, they talked for full 7 hours non-stop. Who does that? Well, soulmates do.
Mira was 21 and Shahid was 34 when they first met. But, interestingly, they clicked immediately even though they had nothing in common. Later, they had just six more meetings before the ‘rokha’ and that was it. But still, they were just friends then.
3. They went for marriage without any baggage of expectations.
If you have ever been in a relationship, you can easily relate to those initial delightful days of mad love and unfortunately, as years pass on, you live with hopeless hope to feel back those passionate feelings. But they never return.
But, in Mira and Shahid’s case, it was the other way round. When they married, they didn’t have any expectations and were waiting to be surprised.
4. Love happened only when ‘Misha’ arrived.
Their short yet beautiful journey to become parents made them respect and fall in love with each other, madly and deeply. Shahid spoke, “Love happened right after Mira was pregnant, we got really close, we got more time to spend with each other”.
5. Mira loves bashing Bollywood and Shahid is obsessed with Bollywood. So, opposites do attract each other!
In short, Mira never had any Bollywood crush, finds Bollywood lyrics crass, and is mostly charmed by foreign brands like AB de Villiers. Well, Shahid, you must be something then.
6. Shahid finds Mira a very ‘normal’ girl whereas he calls himself ‘happily dysfunctional’.
Artists are crazy people, full of insecurities and subtle madness. Hence, to balance them, you need someone normal or a ‘commoner’ who is safely distanced from the glamor world. And, that’s where Mira flawlessly fitted in.
7. They record each other’s ‘burps’. How cutely flawed they are!
Wondering why? Because that’s the only way they can prove each other that they actually BURP A LOT. More so, Mira is teaching Shahid some basic bathroom etiquettes. Because boys will be boys.
8. When together, they can make all singles go green with jealousy.
Unfortunately, it was Karan who got to see their live PDA(Public Display Of Affection) and Karan, of course, has a long relationship with singlehood. Hence, you can imagine what a recycled virgin must have gone through seeing his couch steaming up with romance.
9. And their ‘Jannu-baby‘ romance continued forever.
Finally, Karan asked, “What is the last thing you tell to Shahid before going to bed? She softly said,
Well, enough for today.
