After a series of fun-filled pre-wedding functions, Sharad Malhotra and Ripci Bhatia are now tied to each other for an eternity. The morning of April 20, 2019, was reserved for an elegant Anand Karaj wedding. For their wedding, Ripci donned herself in a peach and red lehenga-choli with beaded jewellery and minimal makeup. Her star hubby, Sharad made for a dapper Sikh groom in a white bandhgala, complementing turban with his wife’s dress, a chunni and a sword in his hand!

The evening of April 20, 2019, was served for Sharad Malhotra and Ripci Bhatia's fun-filled Hindu wedding. While we will share many unseen glimpses from the #RipSha wedding, an interesting observation from us first! While the celeb bride and the groom had looked like a match made straight in heaven, but do note the uncanny resemblance of Ripci's Hindu wedding dupatta with that of Deepika Padukone's Sindhi wedding dupatta's border! With an almost similar design and 'Sada Saubhagyawati Bhav’ written with zari, it is indeed quite difficult to say who looked the best!

Giving you a flashback of Sharad Malhotra and Ripci Bhatia’s pre-wedding festivities, for the couple’s mehendi ceremony on April 19, 2019, they looked mesmerising in traditional wears. While Sharad was dressed in a pastel-hued kurta-pyjama and bandhgala, Ripci looked nothing short of a diva in a blue lehenga-choli, with silver-crystal work on it, hair tied in a side braid, with rose jewellery for her earrings and hair.

Checkout a snapshot of her post:
Sharad Malhotra had earlier shared in an interview as to how he met Ripci Bhatia. Ironically, Sharad had confessed what connected him to Ripci and that was their shared fear of marriage! He had said, "When I was introduced to Ripci, I had just come out of a relationship and was going through a difficult phase. Initially, we would just exchange occasional pleasantries on social media. It was only after Ganpati last year that we got talking on the phone, which was after my last relationship ended. What connected us probably was our fear of marriage. In fact, Ripci travelled the world for six years to avoid marriage, as the pressure on a girl at her age was mounting. I would have loved to do that, too, but I was constantly working. It’s only recently that our families got involved after we spoke over the phone for a few days. Both of us instantly realised that this is it and decided to take the plunge."
