While Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput didn’t take a lot of time to have their first child (they got married on July 7 last year), they actually took a lot of time in naming their daughter (born on August 26). The little girl is extremely blessed to have this stylish couple as parents, but sadly she didn’t get an as stylish name. They have named their daughter Misha. No points for guessing that it comes from Mira and Shahid. Here’s why I think the name is totally unstylish.
1. Absolutely no creativity: Well, you do expect Shahid Kapoor to come up with a better name than Misha. An amalgamation of the parent’s names, Misha is not the result you would expect after so many weeks of brainstorming. Had a copywriter suggested this to a client after weeks of thought, I bet on my life he/she would be fired straight away.

2. Sad tribute to Sooraj Barjatya: Okay, I understand that Sooraj Barjatya and his ‘sanskari’ form of cinema lifted you up, but there was no real need of paying tribute to him through your daughter. May be Shahid got inspired from Madhuri Dixit’s character Nisha from ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun.’ If Misha makes her Bollywood debut in a Sooraj Barjatya film, I’d be sure what the plan was.

3. Don’t copy blindly: Dekho bhai, inspiration is good, but not always. Being in the industry where your looks, your choices will be constantly compared to other celebrities, you could have done better than copying Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra. While they named their daughter ‘Adi-Ra’, you named her ‘Mi-Sha’. I am just glad you didn’t copy them literally and named her ‘Sha-Mi,’because honestly, there can only be one Shammi Kapoor.

4. You didn’t listen to us: Okay, I am speaking here on behalf of the entire media fraternity. Dude, we put in a lot of brain in what we do. From click-bait headlines to strategically cropped pictures, we know how to do our stuff. Jokes apart, if you really had to choose a name after your own names, what was wrong with the frontrunner SHAMEERA? Shameera surely has a better ring to it. Tch!
