Few days ago, a happy looking Shahid Kapoor had confirmed about his fatherhood to all of us. A source confirms, “Rangoon is scheduled for release on October 14. Junior will definitely arrive before that. Mira’s date is around mid-September, but as it happens in most cases, the baby could arrive a few days before or after the due date.”
Mira is just 22 and keeping in mind that this is her first child, Shahid has been keeping a close eye on her and taking extra care. “She has started getting cravings for particular kinds of food and he makes sure to indulge her,” adds the source refusing to get into details. “He has also been accompanying her for visits to the doctor and when they are out, he doesn’t let go of her hand or leave her side.”
Shahid and Mira tied the knot on July 7, 2015, in Delhi at the Chattarpur bungalow of Malvinder Singh, former chairman and CEO of Ranbaxy Laboratories and now a part owner of Fortis Healthcare and Religare Wellness.
Shahid’s next, Udta Punjab is directed by Abhishek Chaubey and throws a light on dark drug scenes in Punjab. It opens on June 17, followed by Vishal Bhardwaj’s Casablanca-like love story, Rangoon, in October. The actor has kept himself free to promote both films and also to be with his wife through her third trimester. “He is in talks for some films but won’t kick start any project before the baby comes along. He’s not planning a paternity leave but he does want to spend some time with both Mira and the baby when it arrives,” adds the source.
It’s been a blissful ten months for Mr and Mrs Kapoor and according to the source, Shahid couldn’t be happier. “Mira is everything he had been looking for and more,” the source concludes.
