There is a good news for the fans of Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput. The two will soon join hands in a project, but it’s not a feature film.
Both have reportedly agreed to be the brand ambassadors of a home appliances company. A statement by GEM home appliances said, “GEM Home Appliances is now gearing up for its grand launch Pan India. To leverage the love for Bollywood that this country has, GEM has associated with young and popular Shahid Kapoor and Mira Kapoor as its brand ambassador.”
The statement went on to add, “This is the first time GEM has used celebrities to promote its brand & products. Market watchers point out that the move would help to add ‘frshness’ to the GEM.”
The company’s managing director, Harish Kumar, said that both Shahid and Mira being an off screen couple was the driving force for them to selected them as GEM’s brand ambassador. “Second, they are one celebrity couple that has not been exposed on small screen and thus their endorsing a brand will enthuse a freshness.”
This comes just days after Mira publicly lashed out at Samsung home appliances while branding its customer service experience ‘worst.’
She had written, “After it’s mobile phones, I think Samsung appliances will start exploding in sympathy with its consumer. Worst customer service experience @samsungindia.”
after a report by Deccan Chronicle recently said that Mira had already shot an ad for a brand in her individual capacity. “Yes, Mira Rajput shot an ad for a foreign baby product. She worked like a thorough professional and got it right in one take; in fact, no one could believe that this was her first commercial. She is very camera friendly and performed with great dignity and confidence,” a source was quoted as saying.
Mira was recently seen endorsing Lifestyle products using her Instagram page, where she has over one million followers.

Mira is currently expecting her second child. Her first child, Misha Kapoor, will turn two next month. On whether Misha too will feature in the commercials for GEM home appliances, the source said that the question the child being part of any commercial projects ‘does not arise at all.’
Mira had in the past courted controversy by saying that she did not want to leave her children at the mercies of maids of nannies since they were not puppies. Her comments had evoked angry reactions from feminist groups.
The couple have recently purchased a posh duplex in Worli for a whopping Rs 56 crore. This was after it emerged that they were fed up with the growing menace of prostitution in the neighbourhood of their current flat in Juhu.
Recently, Shahid had also announced that his wax statue will be installed in the gallery of London’s Madame Tussauds.
