Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput on Tuesday tied the knot in a low-key ceremony at a farm house on the outskirts of the national Capital, attended by close relatives and friends.
Shahid, 34, son of veteran actor Pankaj Kapur and ex-wife Neelima Azeem, exchanged wedding vows with 21-year-old Mira according to the traditions of the Radha Soami sect as their parents are followers of the group, which follows teachings of all religions.

Shahid kept the details of his wedding under wraps, saying it is ‘my personal space’. “She (Mira) is a normal girl and I am a normal guy, and we should treat it like something normal and regular.
