Bollywood wedding season seems to be back. Just like last year, with Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja getting married in an extravagant affair and Neha Dhupia secretly tying the knot with Angad Bedi, this year also seems to follow and this time the wedding bells are ringing for none other than the comedy king himself, Kapil Sharma.
The day before yesterday, the most talked-about couple of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh announced their wedding date. And just after a day, Kapil Sharma also confirmed his wedding date. He will be tying the knot with his long-time girlfriend Ginni Chatrath on December 12th, 2018.
The two will take the pious seven rounds in Ginni’s hometown, Jalandhar and the duo will host a reception in Mumbai on December 14. Kapil said,
“We wanted to keep it a low key. But Ginni is the only daughter in her family. Her folks wanted the wedding to be on a lavish scale. And I completely understand their sentiments. My mother also wants the wedding to be lavish.”
Recently Kapil’s maiden production, Son of Manjeet Singh released and has been earning huge accolades from the audience as well as huge box office numbers. Kapil was busy promoting the film. During the wedding announcement, he said,
“For the past few weeks, I’ve been promoting my Punjabi film. I didn’t want to talk about the wedding during the promotions, although the media repeatedly kept asking,”
“During the time when my brother married, I had not started earning well. We just went as a small baraat (wedding procession) and got bhabhi (sister-in-law) home. But by the time my sister got married, I had begun to earn well. So we had a fairly large wedding. It was lavish by our standards.”
A source close to the couple told Indian Express,
“While December 12 is the wedding date for now, Kapil and his family want to zero in on the most auspicious date. The family has already started prepping up for the big fat Punjabi wedding which will happen in his home town. Kapil is in Mumbai but has been keeping in touch and personally looking into the preparations. His show is also supposed to go on floors soon. So, he has quite a lot in his kitty for now,”
Kapil Sharma’s mother has been seen around in his shows various times, sitting in the audience, enjoying his son’s stand-up comedy. Her mother in his own words is really happy about his marriage, in face, happier than him.
“Of course I am. But more than me, the happiness that I see on my mother’s face is what makes it special.”
Kapil Sharma introduced his girlfriend, Ginni Chatrath to his fans and friends through social media in December last year. This last one year has been a rough one for the comedian and his family. His show, The Kapil Sharma Show landed in controversy after controversy and ended up shutting off, then another of his show, Family Time With Kapil Sharma went off-air after a short run of just 2 episodes. Since then, he hasn’t been back on screen and is constantly fighting with alcoholism and negative publicity.
After a really long time, good news has surrounded the actor and the comedian and all his fans would be really happy to hear about it. There are reports of another of his show coming soon on TV and we hope everything works in his favour this time.
