MUMBAI: It’s no news that Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki fame Ssharad Malhotra is all set to tie the knot with his fiancée Ripci Bhatia. Ripci is a Delhi-based fashion designer and wooed Ssharad in such a way that he finally felt all the right things about marriage.
Sshard poured his heart out and spoke to a leading publication. He shared that he was fearful of the commitment that a marriage asks for and that all his past relationships ended the moment they graduated to marriage. The actor has now found his new self and is getting hitched in the third week of April.
Talking about how he met Ripci and what led to a change of heart, Ssharad said that when he was introduced to Ripci, he had just come out of a relationship and was going through a difficult phase. Initially, they would just exchange occasional pleasantries on social media. It was only after Ganpati last year that they got talking on the phone, which was after his last relationship ended. What connected Ripci and Ssharad was probably their fear of marriage, as Ssharad recalls. In fact, Ripci travelled the world for six years to avoid marriage, as the pressure on a girl her age was mounting.
Ssharad went on to reveal that he and Ripci didn’t even date before they decided to marry. Everything happened the old-fashioned way for them, as they said a yes without meeting each other much. In fact, she asked him recently why they didn’t date before deciding to tie the knot. It just didn’t happen.
Isn’t that a unique love story?
