Shahid Kapoor supports wife’s views on motherhood


Actor Shahid Kapoor stands by his wife Mira Rajput’s views on motherhood and feminism, and says she only spoke her mind when she said her child isn’t a “puppy” to be left at home.

According to Shahid, she had no intention of hurting anyone.

Mira had been speaking at an event for International Women’s Day earlier this month. She had said, “I love being at home. I love being a mother to my child. I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work, why did I have her? She is not a puppy; I want to be there for her as a mother.”

Misha is better than anything I could ever ask for: Shahid

This comment earned her the wrath of several working mothers via social media. Defending Mira, Shahid said on Wednesday night, “She clearly said ‘I think we are in a time where everybody is getting hurt about everything’, so I honestly don’t feel there is any sense in trying to keep everyone happy. I think Mira started the conversation by saying that these are my personal comments.”

The actor said his wife didn’t even make a direct comment on anybody or any category of women. Besides, Shahid says it’s their personal choice as a couple that while one of them is working, the other is taking care of their child. “What Mira is doing for Misha is far more important, far more relevant. I really wish I could, but between the two of us, one has to go to work and I happen to be that person. So, I think she was speaking from a very positive space,” he added.

Sharing a cottage with Shahid was a nightmare: Kangana Ranaut

Shahid’s next project is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. On Tuesday night, the set of the film in Kolhapur was vandalised and set on fire. Shahid called the incident “unfortunate,” adding, “I am not aware of the fact that who has done it and the reason behind it.”

Padmavati also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The film is scheduled to release on November 17.
