When 'Mirzapur' Fame, Shweta Tripathi Reacted On Being Older Than Her Husband, 'Everyone Forgets...'

Shweta Tripathi revealed that no one was ever bothered about the couple's age difference 

Many people don't know that Shweta is 5-year-older than her husband. The 39-year-old actress revealed that no one in their family ever worried about it. Moreover, many of their friends and relatives thought she was much younger than him. But no one ever judged them for it. WION quoted her as saying:

"He is the younger one but I always feel that I am the younger one. Once when his dad's friend was watching TV, one of my ads played when his father said 'Do you know this is Cheeta's girlfriend?' And that friend went like, 'Isn't she too young for him?' Everybody forgets I'm older. They never bothered. You don't fall in love with things like height or age. He is 6 ft tall and I am 5 ft."
