This man tasted success like it was kept aside for him and then came his failure like no one had imagined. Every celebrity had Kapil Sharma’s show as a ‘must’ for promotional activities, but due to certain differences or call it fate, it was not long ago, when Kapil Sharma was engulfed in a series of controversies and his show was called off in no time.

However, Kapil maintained his valour and stood by the test of time. An epitome of perseverance and patience, Kapil Sharma taught us that anything is possible only if you yearn for it and work towards it. And so, it totally worked out for ‘Comedy King’, Kapil Sharma. Kapil is not only getting back his glitz and glamour in his life, but love as well! Yes, our favourite Bitto Sharma will be a married man on December 12, 2018 and his show, The Kapil Sharma Show is all set to be back on our telly screens during mid-December.

And the latest update has got something to do with Kapil’s wedding performers! Some renowned faces of the music world will rock his wedding.

Isn’t that exciting?
In an interview with Bombay Times, Kapil and Ginni got all candid about their wedding and how they had each other’s back in difficult times. Speaking about how love happened between the duo, Kapil stated, “She studied in HMV College (Jalandhar). I was a scholarship holder, as I was a national winner in theatre. I was a student of APJ College and in order to make some pocket money, I started directing plays. I went to audition students at her college and that’s how we met in 2005.” Ginni then went to audition for a play and that’s where the two met for the first time. Kapil continued, “She was 19 then and I was 24. I was tired of taking auditions and explaining the role to the girls. Ginni was so good that I was quite impressed with her and told her to audition the girls for me. As we started the rehearsals, she started bringing food for me. Back then, I thought that she was doing it out of respect.”
For the uninitiated, Ginni’s father had once rejected Kapil’s marriage proposal. Revealing 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!

Recently, in an interview with Hindustan Times, Kapil joked about halting his marriage and was quoted as saying, “Maine shaadi rokne ki bahut koshish ki, par kuch nahin hua (laughs). Jokes apart, I am ecstatic to be with Ginni and I know this marriage will be a huge change in my life. Discipline aayega. She takes good care of me and is a huge support in my life. People like me are surrounded by many people at work or events or otherwise, but when you come home, ghar khali lagta hai”.
We wish Kapil and Ginni all the happiness in the world for embarking a new beginning in life!
