Television actor Sharad Malhotra is all set to take the plunge. Sharad, who shot to fame with Zee TV's Banoo Main Teri Dulhann will tie the knot with girlfriend Ripci Bhatia in April this year. The actor confirmed the news to Pinkvilla. Ripci is a fashion designer and she has been travelling all across the globe for the last six years. She will soon be introducing her label in India.
Sharad took to Instagram to share this pleasant surprise with his fans and followers. He posted a picture of himself and Ripci standing before Ganpati idol. The couple is twinning in shades of yellow. While Sharad looks handsome in a yellow kurta, Ripci is shining in light yellow ethnic dress. Alongside the picture, he wrote, ''They say ur lucky .......I say, I'm lucky @ripci.bhatia #ripsha #ganpatibappamorya #nowandforever''. Soon after he shared the picture, congratulatory messages started pouring in.
Going by the picture, it is confirmed that the couple has exchanged rings amidst the presence of their friends and family members.
Sharad revealed that their meeting and the decision of marriage and ultimately the family involvement-all happened in a quite old fashioned way. The couple has been knowing each other for last few years but surprisingly, they didn't date. ''Ripci and my sister have known each other for a while since they are fellow designers. My sister had introduced us a couple of years back. We exchanged occasional pleasantries on social media. Recently, both the families got involved and we both spoke over the phone for a few days. We both instantly knew this is it and decided to take the plunge. And yes, for a change we didn’t want to date each other first! In fact, it all happened in a very old-fashioned way for us as we said yes without as much as meeting each other!,'' he told the entertainment portal.
