Mira Rajput requests paparazzi to ‘leave the photographing to the parents’


Shahid Kapoor’s wife, Mira Rajput has often made headlines for speaking her mind. In a recent Instagram post, the star wife appealed to the media to give children some space and be kind to them.

She wrote, “Guys please be kind. Let kids enjoy their childhood and leave the photographing to the parents.’’

It was reported that Mira and her daughter Misha Kapoor were enjoying some time at a kids’ garden where the toddler was enjoying on a playground slide. However, as they were entering the garden, they were bombarded with the cameras and Mira was snapped holding Misha in her arms.

This did not go down well with Mira and she took to Instagram to express her thoughts in a strongly-worded message.

Shahid and Mira were initially hesitant to reveal Misha’s photos and always had her covered if they happened to be out in public. They took a while to release her photographs.

Earlier, Mira on her daughter had commented, “As far as media attention is concerned, I know it’s going to happen. I can’t keep Misha behind closed doors all the time. I want her to have a normal childhood. I want her to know that she has the privileges that she has because of her father. She has to respect that. I just hope that she doesn’t get swept away by the tide.Obviously, I want to share what Misha does with my family and friends. Shahid also wants to do so with his friends and family. She is our pride, but there is always a line. I want to protect her as much as I can.”

On Shahid Kapoor as a father, Mira has said, “Shahid’s relationship with Misha started right from the moment when he got to know that I was pregnant. Fatherhood comes naturally to him. He is fully involved and he changed her diaper even before I did. Shahid wants to be connected to her always and I think that’s great. Misha is going to have him wrapped around her little finger.”

Shahid also voiced his opinion on keeping Misha in the limelight and said, “I worry about the future much more. Of course, this is because I know my daughter’s growing up in this atmosphere. I want to protect her. But I do think that the times to come are going to be more about women than men. Change is coming — and it’s already palpable.”
