Arguably one of the sweetest arrange married couple in Bollywood, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput are literally couple goals. The couple have an age difference of 13 years and that normally would have an effect on their relationship.

However, speaking in a recent interview Shahid spoke at length about his wife Mira, how they are each others’ best friends at times and how Mira says she is not Shahid’s first preference. Shahid said, “No one should live in an illusion that everything’s set. When you believe everything is on autopilot, it all falls apart.”

“You’ve got to work every day at everything. Whether it’s marriage, parenting, career or even your relationship with your parents. I struggle with all of them. I struggle at maintaining my friendships. I’m terrible at maintaining long-distance relationships. I struggle at dividing my time between my wife, my children and work, said Shahid.

The Kabir Singh actor further added, “My wife feels she isn’t a priority. I feel guilty about not giving enough time to myself. Many a time I tell my family, ‘Guys, let me work also sometimes’.”

“She got married so young, had two kids and had to figure out how to deal with that when she was just stepping out of being a kid herself. She must have had her dreams and desires but she pushed those aside. That’s a lot to deal with. Also, the fact that we have an age difference, we are 13 years apart,” said Shahid, while speaking about how their marriage is like.

When Shahid and Mira got married, the latter was just 21 years old. She had just completed her graduation from Delhi University and was introduced to Shahid via her parents through the Radha Soami Satsang Beas. The couple now has two kids–daughter Misha and son Zain.
