Actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife and content creator Mira Rajput recently spoke out on being labelled a star wife whenever she is spoken about in the press. Since their wedding in 2015, Mira has risen in popularity on social media, became a YouTuber, and an investor, and often endorses homegrown brands online. Chafed against being termed a star wife often in the seven years she has been married to the actor, she argued recently on how the derogatory term should be dropped completely.
Speaking with host Janice Sequeira on the first episode of ‘Social Media Star With Janice’ in its fifth season, Mira stated why the label should be banned, even when referring to the children of stars. She said, "We ought to get over it now. Maybe it was an association that one needed to make for recall value. But even if you put that on a kid, and you say star kid, people don’t like listening to ‘star kid’ for all of its nepotistic connotations and all of that. But that term is still in use, like it needs to kind of find its way out and likewise, I have never understood the concept of a star wife, what does that mean?”
Appearing along with singer-rapper Badshah, Mira stated, “You can have an actor or celebrity or a star who has a wife or a husband, nobody says star husband, why is there a star wife?”
Mira and Shahid are also parents of two young children, six-year-old Misha and four-year-old Zain. The actor often appears in Mira's YouTube videos online.
