The 34-year-old “Haider” star, who got engaged to Mira, 21, earlier this year, kept his wedding a private ceremony.
Shahid, who was in a relationship with actress Kareena Kapoor Khan for over three years and later linked to his co-stars Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Bipasha Basu, arrived in Delhi yesterday while his parents were in the city before to oversee the wedding preparations.
Shahid, from the beginning, kept the details of his wedding under wraps as he feels their marriage is a “normal and regular affair”.
“I refrain from getting into details. I thought that since I am here today, it was important to acknowledge it in front of the media, so I am doing that. Other than that, 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,” he had said.
A dinner is being hosted at a five-star hotel tonight in which about 250 guests have been invited.
This will be followed by a reception in Mumbai on July 12, for which there will be a separate invite – also designed by Delhi-based card maker Ravish Kapoor, who worked on the wedding invite.
Shahid will be next seen in Vikas Bahl’s “Shaandaar” opposite Alia Bhatt and “Udta Punjab”, which is produced by Vikramaditya Motwane.
Apart from his film assignments, the newly wedded actor will be seen as a judge on the celebrity dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8”.
