Bollywood's quintessential couple Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput welcomed their second child on Wednesday, September 5. Mira, who was admitted to the Hinduja hospital in Khar, Mumbai yesterday afternoon, was making minimal media appearances in the past few weeks.
While the family is overwhelmed with the news, proud grandfather Pankaj Kapoor exclusively shared his delight with Republic TV on the birth of his second grandchild. "I am very delighted that a new bundle of joy has come to our house. A baby being born in any house is a matter of sheer joy and excitement. Similarly, it is a moment of joy for our family and as the grandfather of the newborn, I am delighted and very proud of my family. I wish Shahid and Mira all the very best and many congratulations," he said. The Kapoors are in a celebratory mode ever since the news arrived.
Shahid and Mira, who are proud parents of Misha, have been quite private about their affairs. Although the arrival of the baby was kept under wraps, Mira's ongoing food cravings let the cat out of the bag for their fans. The young lady was seen gorging on continental food items from popular joints in the city. Not just that, she also featured in a commercial proving that there's no stopping the new-age mommies of our country. Shahid hasn't left the hospital premises ever since Mira was admitted. The actor's younger brother Ishaan, mother Neelima and Mira's mother visited the newborn on Wednesday, September 5. Shahid also brought his daughter to have a tête-à-tête with her baby brother a day after his birth.
Meanwhile, Shahid has been keeping busy with the ongoing promotions of his forthcoming film 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' which also features Shraddha Kapoor in the main lead. The film that has been the second outing of director Shree Narayan Singh sees yet another unique story set in the backdrop of a small town. His last film 'Toilet - Ek Prem Katha' received immense appreciation from one and all for showing the real rural India faces in the 21st century.
With the film being inspired by real events, Shree Narayan Singh and writers Garima and Siddharth did extensive research to do justice to the story. Since it is set in Uttarakhand, the dialogues are laced with Garhwali, one of the dialects of the state. Both Shahid and Shraddha took lessons to perfect their command over the dialect.
