Shahid Kapoor has his hands full these days. The actor’s controversial Udta Punjab finally released today but wife Mira Rajput was missing from the film’s screening on Thursday in Mumbai.
According to entertainment website SpotboyE, Mira who has just entered the third trimester of her pregnancy was hospitalised last week. The 22-year-old was visited by Shahid every day while she was in hospital and when he was forced to be away for Udta Punjab’s promotion-related activities, Mira’s family rallied around her. To ensure she is not in any stress, Mira also missed the screening of Udta Punjab.
In May, Mira was admitted to hospital for some urgent check-ups as well and Shahid was there with her all along. According to a source, Mira’s family is very conscious of her health. “She’s been hospitalised for rest and the family has been rallying around her when Shahid is not around. The third trimester is an extremely risky phase and Mira and the baby’s well-being is of utmost importance,” the source told the website.
After making it to the headlines for a number of days owing to the standoff with the CBFC, Shahid’s Udta Punjab finally hit the screens today. The film highlighting the rampant drug menace and its impact on the youth in Punjab.
The Punjab and Haryana high court had on Thursday dismissed two petitions filed against the movie which was earlier caught in a censorship row.
