What looks like an emerging trend these days, the couple got married in two wedding customs- a Hindu wedding and an Anand Karaj one. The couple complemented each other for their Hindu wedding in a red and green avatar and twinned in pink for their Anand Karaj ceremony. On their wedding, Kapil and Ginni looked like one happy couple. Also, Kapil’s famous ‘Baba ji ka thullu’ pose is too fun to miss! Take a look at their wedding pictures:
Don’t they look amazing? Yesterday (December 14, 2018), Kapil and Ginni had hosted their wedding reception in Amritsar. With everybody waiting to see the first look of their wedding reception, Kapil looked dapper in a brown velvet bandhgala with golden embroidery around his neck and Ginni looked beautiful in an olive green lehenga choli and ethnic kundan jewellery. What further accentuated her look was her passa, potli, chooda and that beautiful bridal glow on her face! While we will definitely share their pictures, don’t you want to see the inside videos and pictures of what all happened at their Amritsar reception (Hint: Videos of their cake-cutting and Daler Mehendi's performance lies inside) Checkout!
In an earlier interview with IANS, the Firangi star confirmed his wedding news. Revealing details about the same, he had stated, “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.” And Kapil has left no bounds to achieve that!

In an interview with the Bombay Times, Kapil and Ginni had revealed their love story. They first met in college and Ginni woould bring food for him everyday out of respect. Kapil also shared how he once directly asked her if she likes him and she denied it. He recalled, “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."
He further stated, “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."
For the uninitiated, Ginni’s father had once rejected Kapil’s marriage proposal. Revealing about the incident, he shared, “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. 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.” (Read On!
