She is being called the Kate Middleton of Bollywood. The quiet demure Mira Rajput, a Delhi gal, was ready for prime papparazzi time when she married a leading Bollywood star, Shahid Kapoor. Her wedding trousseau post mortem starts here.We have all scrutinized the wedding pictures as they rolled off the digital feed. Our eyes scanned the border of her saris and the glitzy jewellery pops. Now tell us what you liked best.
She was cheerful in bright, sunshiny yellow for the mehndi. Bright and gold flecked, she went for a fresh, fun, youthful look. She is twenty-one years old.
And in a non-diva move she kept the yellow dress on for the sangeet as well. No frantic changing, no colour coordinating with her groom.
Then there was the photo-op. In a pale pink, Anamika Khanna lengha, she was predictably pretty, girly and glittery with a pop of jewelry that sent us gasping for air. Her hair, the side-sweeping passa will be the new rage cried the fashion magazines. She complimented her groom Shahid who, they said looked streamlined, sharp and delighted. His best friend and designer Kunal Rawal served him well.

The reception showed the transition of the little Lady Shri Ram College girl to the bahu of the Mumbai star. She let her hair down for the reception and wore an edgier Anamika Khanna. With a sort of sheer, golden half cape on a beautifully embroidered ivory lehenga.
Shahid and Mira’s reception in Mumbai on July 12 was a grand and starry affair. Held at the Palladium Hotel, it saw the presence of stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Kapoor and more. Shahid Kapoor was dapper in a three-piece designed by his friend Kunal Rawal and his wife Mira Rajput wore a blue and white Manish Malhotra lehenga.
