Sharad Malhota had earlier shared in an interview as to how he met Ripci Bhatia. Ironically, Sharad confessed that what connected him and Ripci 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."

The Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki actor had earlier shared in an interview that he is having pre-wedding jitters and that he waiting to take the saat pheras. He was quoted as saying, "I’ve been married many times on screen, so I am waiting to see how I feel in real life when I put sindoor in Ripci’s maang. I know most of the ceremonies by heart — haldi, mehendi, pheras, etc. But I am waiting to experience the moment when it actually happens. I wonder what I will feel during the saat pheras, or when she wears the mangalsutra."
Sharad Malhotra has often been associated with the pharse- 'runaway groom' who is marriage-phobic and in fact, even his friends tease with the that name. Recently talking to the Hindustan Times, he had shared, "I realised that bahut bhaag liya. I can either keep running away from a marriage all my life, or get into it, experience it and see for myself if it’s good, bad or ugly. My mother was extremely happy when I gave my nod. Having said that, she didn’t give her approval immediately. She took her time to be sure that I was ready for it, given my colourful past. She feared that I would back out again. But everything happened organically. I would call it an arranged-cum-love marriage."
