A source had shared with Mumbai Mirror, “The celebrations will kick off with a Mata ka jagran at Kapil’s sister’s residence on December 10. This will be followed by a mehendi and sangeet ceremony at the bride’s place the next day. A five star has been booked for the big fat Punjabi wedding on December 12. It will be followed by a reception party on December 14 at another five-star in Amritsar.”
Now, Kapil’s good friend and a talent manager by profession, Gurjot Singh took to his official Instagram handle and shared a lovely picture, wherein Kapil and Ginni can be seen all smiles as they enjoy a romantic boat ride along with Gurjot and Bollywood diva, Richa Chadha. Sharing the picture on Instagram, talent manger Gurjot Singh wrote, “Everyone has a friend during each stage of life but only lucky ones have the same friend in all stages of life #friendslikefamily #amsterdam #love #kapilsharma #ginnichatrath #richachadda @kapilsharma @ginnichatrath @therichachadha.”
Talking about his wedding earlier, Kapil had once shared, “The wedding is on December 12 in Jalandhar. That’s Ginni’s hometown. We wanted to keep it 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”. He had further added, “My mother has been saying that I should get married for a long time. Suddenly I realised that ‘abhi age ho rahi hai’ (I am getting on in age). So, I thought what if she says ‘no’ and after one or two years, no one agrees to get married to me.” (Also Read: Sharad Malhotra Gets Engaged To His Girlfriend, Ripci Bhatia, She Flaunts Her Solitaire Ring)
Revealing his love story with the Bombay Times, Kapil shared, “My friend told me that Ginni likes me, but I rubbished him. One day, I directly asked Ginni, ‘Tu mujhe like toh nahi karti?’ and she denied. Later, at a youth festival, I introduced her to my mother as one of my students. Then I came to Mumbai for the 'Laughter Challenge' audition and by then, I had also appeared on a Punjabi TV channel. Ginni was impressed with me because I was studying and working at such a young age. When I got rejected for 'Laughter Challenge', I called her and said, ‘Please don’t call me’. I felt that our friendship has no future, as her financial condition was better, and we belonged to different castes. So, we took a break. When I got selected for Laughter Challenge after auditioning again, she called to congratulate me."
Do you know Kapil’s proposal to marry Ginni was once rejected by her father? Sharing the same, Kapil had retorted, “When I started earning well, my mother took my marriage proposal to her family, which got rejected. Inke papaji ne bade pyaar se bola, ‘Shut up’ (laughs!). Thereafter, I got busy with work, while she pursued MBA in finance. I guess, she kept studying to avoid marriage proposals.” (Checkout: Neeti Mohan Shares Her Complete Wedding Journey On Hubby Nihaar Pandya's Birthday, Video Inside)
He further went on to add, “At that time, I was settled in Mumbai, and so much was happening in my life. I then realised ki itna kuchh hua hai, but isne kabhi mujhe disturb nahi kiya. Itna patience kisi mein nahi dekha maine. Jab ye sab gadbad chal rahi thi, that’s when I decided that it was the right time to marry. It was my decision, because ye toh padhai kare hi jaa rahi thi (laughs!). So, on December 24, 2016, I called and told Ginni that I wanted to marry her. My mother has always been fond of her.” (Don't Miss: Sonali Bendre Behl Flaunts 20-Inch Scar From Cancer Surgery, Says She Doesn't Find It Ugly Anymore)
