Millions of hearts were shattered when one of the most successful comedy stars, Kapil Sharma got married in two wedding rituals- Hindu and an Anand Karaj one.

And with everyone wanting to see a picture of their first look from their wedding, Kapil and Ginni totally complemented each other in red and green at their Hindu wedding. Take a look at the same here:
A wedding is the beginning of a whole new phase in a newly-weds life. More so, a girl because she leaves behind her home, her comfort, her parents and some, even their surname. And hence, she deserves a grand entry into her new abode, her sasural. And Kapil’s now wife, Ginni Chatrath definitely had one! Kapil’s close friend and often termed as ‘Comedy Queen’, Bharti Singh posted a picture of Ginni’s sasural-coming, wherein, it is an Indian tradition for the newbie bride to dip her feet in red dye (alta) and enter her new house. Checkout an after-picture of the same here:
Isn’t it amazing? Coming back to Kapil and Ginni’s wedding looks, if you are still gushing over how beautiful they look at their wedding, you will equally swoon over their reception look as well! On December 14, 2018, Kapil and Ginni had hosted their wedding reception in Amritsar.

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.” (Also Read: Sara Ali Khan Revealed That Sharmila Tagore Messaged Mom Amrita Singh For Her Kedarnath Performance)
