Mira Rajput, the wife of Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor is not known for her public display of affection, also known as PDA, for her husband. The last time she came close to causing her PDA moment, this was earlier this year when the couple were spotted outside the Mumbai airport. Husband Shahid had desperately tried to hold his then heavily pregnant wife’s hand in front of the waiting paparazzi, but his act had taken Mira by surprise and the former’s action caused an awkward moment for the couple.
However, the arrival of baby Zain Kapoor appears to have emboldened Mira, who appears to be unperturbed by public opinion. On Wednesday, she took to Instagram to wish her fans Happy Diwali. However, she chose to post an intimate photo of herself with Shahid Kapoor while wishign everyone Happy Diwali. She wrote, “Only love ?Happy Diwali!” But that was only a tiny part of her festive greetings.
The caption was accompanied by a photo of Shahid passionately kissing Mira Rajput. The lip-locked photo of Mira evoked plenty of reactions with many accusing the couple of disrespecting the Hindu festival. One fan wrote, “I think they don’t have idea about Indian tradition and festivals… #shame on them.” “It’s not a Valentine’s Day. It’s Happy Diwali. I mean in our tradition we used to say Happy Diwali by haath jod ke (with folded hands). What to say our so-called superstar don’t have any idea about Indian tradition. Even a Christian will not say Merry Chrsitmas like that.. Shame on you!,” commented another user. Another fan reacted, “What are you trying to prove by posting such photo?”
There were others who felt that the couple had already embarked on their plans to have their third child. Others felt that there was nothing wrong with the couple displaying their intimate moments publicly, but the kiss, according to one, looked psychotic.
Mira also posted another photo with brother-in-law Ishaan Khattar with a caption, “Nice to you today.”
Earlier this week, Mira had revealed her son Zain Kapoor’s Diwali outfit, which was designed by Shahid designer friend, Kunal Rawal. Little Zain’s Diwali outfit had consisted of a white kurta with a Chinese collar and a Nehru jacket attached to a marooned kurta.
