Jalandhar, Dec 13: Comedian-actor Kapil Sharma married his longtime girlfriend Ginni Chatrath in Jalandhar on Wednesday. The couple took their wedding vows in the presence of their respective families and close friends.
They married at a traditional Punjabi ceremony, which was enlivened by popular singer Gurdas Maan.
Kapil made a late entry at the wedding venue, which was done up in red and gold.
The bride stuck to the traditional for her attire, and accessorised her look with maatha patti, nath and statement earrings and a layered neckpiece.
Kapil sported a green sherwani, with string adding some drama to his look. His triple kalgi on the turban and sword grabbed attention, as did his bearded look.
He shared their first wedding picture himself via Instagram, with an emoticon with folded hands in gratitude for the love and blessings from all over.
The venue had ample security considering Kapil is an established name in the industry and has a huge fan following. Invitations to the wedding itself had a barcode for entry.
A guest on condition of anonymity told news agency IANS that there was a limited gathering of the couple’s close family members and friends, apart from a few names from the world of comedy.
Kapil’s colleagues like Sumona Chakravarti, Krushna Abhishek, Rajiv Thakur, Bharti Singh and Harsh Limbachiyaa attended the wedding.
It was very much a Punjabi wedding in terms of the food, barring special Thai food arrangements.
The star attraction was a performance by Gurdas Maan.
The “Comedy Nights With Kapil” star and Ginni wanted the wedding to be rooted in their culture. In fact, they Lovely Sweets, a 60-year-old Indian sweets manufacturer from here, for the sweets they have distributed, and Lovely Imagination, for designing the elaborate wedding invitations and sweets.
Their wedding was preceded by days of ceremonies and pre-marriage rituals, including a sangeet which saw their friends dance the night away.
A wedding reception is scheduled to take place in Amritsar on December 14 and Kapil has reportedly planned to host a reception on December 24 in Mumbai for the TV and film industries.
Congratulations, Kapil and Ginni.
