For most actors, it is typically very rare to open up about their married lives, but Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor is more than happy to speak about his marriage. The Jab We Met star, Shahid Kapoor recently revealed that he takes “permission” from his wife, Mira Kapoor, before spending money.
Shahid tied the knot with Mira in 2015 and the couple has a daughter and a son, Misha, and Zain. The Kabir Singh actor recently met YouTuber Curly Tales for an interview and talked about his life candidly.
“I would spend all out before but now I am a family man,” he said. “Mere do bacche hai aur biwi hai. Unse permission leni padti hai. Sochna padta hai (I have two kids and a wife. I have to take their permission and think about it).” However, Shahid Kapoor clarified that he didn’t take permission from wife for his boys’ trip and that “it comes under his rights”.
He also opened up about his wife’s cooking skills and upon being asked who is the better cook, Shahid said that it’s a “tough fight” between his wife and his father, Pankaj Kapur. “Dad is a really good cook. I think Mira kind of pips him. Although in some dishes, my dad will pip Mira. But it is a tough one,” he said.
The Chup Chup Ke actor also said that if he asks his father, he would cook something up immediately, but if he asks Mira, he would have to constantly have to remind her for two months.
The 41-year-old actor also shared that his wife cooks “very good” Thai and continental food. But he said that in seven years of his marriage he only got to eat two of each dish his wife excels at since she does not cook a lot.

The Jab We Met actor also opened up about his humble beginnings. Shahid said that his parents were not actors who were in touch with all the directors. He added both Pankaj and Neelima Azeem were working on their own merit. “They both have been fantastic actors but they were also working hard to survive,” he said.
On the work front, Shahid is working for Ali Abbas Zafar’s untitled actioner and will be seen in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.’s untitled web series in which he will be sharing the screen with Tamil cinema stars Vijay Sethupathi and Raashii Khanna.
