Actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife, Mira Rajput, on Tuesday posted her first ever commercial video while endorsing the skincare products of Olay. As expected, her video elicited considerable response from her fans with many finding her debut as an actor cute.
Shahid too couldn’t hide his excitement and took to Instagram to publicly announce his love for wife Mira. He wrote, “who’s the stunner?”
However, not everyone was impressed by Mira’s commercial as the Padmaavat actor’s wife began to face incessant trolling on the social media. While many slammed her for endorsing a beauty product, others accused her of copying Kareena Kapoor Khan. Shahid was rumoured to be in a relationship with Kareena before they split. Kareena married Saif Ali Khan, while Shahid went on to marry Mira in 2015. The couple recently celebrated their third anniversary.
Reacting to Mira’s commercial video, one of her fans, Pravin Sarkar, wrote, “Kareena ko copy karna bandh karo.” Another fan Jyoti Raghav wrote, “R u mad at such young age u r portraying ageing cream hahaha omg ab tv p aane k liye ye sab krogi (sic).” User Dhanish commented, “Am sorry but TV, adverts, modelling are not for you. Please let the people who are good at it do this.”
Mira, however, had many fans coming to her defence. One wrote, “Guyz if you don’t have something good then don’t comment bad at all. Spread love instead of so much hate.” Another wrote, “She is trying something new encourage her, why wear a critique hat every time?”
In the ad for Olay skincare products, Mira talks about the challenges of being a mother and maintaining her skin during and post pregnancy. She says, “Being a mother is beautiful, I still remember holding Misha in my arms. She brought Shahid and me even closer. I have always been a very hands-on mom.”
The news came just days after it was reported that Shahid and Mira had signed for a commercial with home appliances company GEM where they will be sharing the screen space together for the first time. Mira’s performance in the Olay commercial shows as if she’s been acting in front of camera for ages. It didn’t come across as if this was her first encounter with acting.
Mira is currently expecting her second child. Her first child, Misha Kapoor, will turn two this month. Shahid has reportedly taken a paternity break to be with Mira during the delivery of the couple’s second child.
