Padmaavat star Shahid Kapoor, who has started the shooting of Shree Narayan Singh’s social drama Batti Gul Meter Chalu in Uttrakhand, turns a year older next Sunday (February 25, 2018). The actor has planned a low-key family celebration and will not host a star-studded sun-downer at his sea-facing residence like last year. The actor, who is currently shooting for is upcoming film, is all set to take some time off work to ring in the special day with his family. Yes, you read that right. The actor, who turns 37 on February 25, 2018, will celebrate his birthday by attending a satsang in Beas, the river-town near Amritsar.
Shahid’s birthday celebrations will not be a star-studded affair but attending the satsang with family (wife Mira Rajput, daughter Misha and parents-in-law, Vikramaditya and Bela). The satsang is by the Radha Soami sect, the spiritual group who introduced Shahid’s family to Mira’s. In a statement to Mumbai Mirror, a source close to the couple, said, “Shahid and Mira missed Valentine’s Day and the actor wanted to keep up with the annual tradition of celebrating birthdays with satsangs and a visit to Beas.”
Shahid, who will be seen playing a lawyer in his upcoming comedy-drama, will resume shooting a few days after the birthday. Meanwhile, recently when Mira and Misha were spotted at the Mumbai airport, it led to rumours that the actor’s family was joining him on the film set to ring in his birthday but the source has to say otherwise. The daily quoted the source as saying, “It’s freezing in Uttarakhand at the moment and Mira and Misha are heading home to Delhi. Shahid will be flying to the Capital first, after which the family will travel to Beas together.” ALSO READ: After Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor Starts Shooting For Batti Gul Meter Chalu – Read Tweet
