Well, after the mehendi and sangeet ceremonies, other pre-wedding functions are going on in full swing. Now, a video from his haldi ceremony has gone viral on social media wherein he can be seen all-dipped in haldi. Also, the senior ladies from Sharad’s family can be heard singing a traditional song, Mathe Te Chamkan Waal. Here’s the video from the pre-wedding function:
In an interaction with Pinkvilla, Sharad had revealed the deets regarding his wedding ceremonies. He was quoted as saying, “We have planned to have a mehndi, sangeet, and a morning wedding. Most of the functions are in Mumbai and one function is in my hometown Kolkata." Further, he had also shared the details about their wedding trousseau and had remarked, "Somewhere, I think we are coordinating with each other. I have practically got married on screen for 6-7 times. So I think may even be knowing the few mantras too.” (Also Read: Kajol Devgan's Emotional Birthday Post For Nysaa Devgan On Her 16th Birthday, Picture Inside)
On the other hand, Ripci had shared how she is managing to do the preparations for the wedding. The bride-to-be had quoted, “I am working for 12-13 hours a day and then commuting for another 2-3 hours, so the junk of the day is gone. And the remaining time, you want to come to the home, relax, workout and enjoy with your family and friends. Luckily, I have a good team which is taking care of everything. I have my sister back home who is taking care of everything. My brother in law, my friends, my family friends, so everyone is pitching into it.”
When Sharad was asked about Ripci, he had retorted, “Ripci is very childlike and I adore that quality. She just puts across everything in a beautiful manner. I love women who work and are independent but at the same time, both counterparts are managing the house well.” (Checkout: Saif Ali Khan Requests Paparazzi Not To Stalk Taimur Ali Khan, Says He Is Not A Star)
In an interaction with the Hindustan Times earlier, Sharad had confessed that the fact that he is getting married has not sunk in yet. He was quoted as saying, "I feel that the good things in life happen suddenly. There is a lot of excitement, nervousness and happiness as the wedding date comes closer. There is a lot happening workwise and added to all that are the wedding preparations. So, it hasn’t sunk in yet that I am getting married (laughs). Everyone has been waiting for my marriage, including me."
Further, the Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki actor had also shared if he had pre-wedding jitters, "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." (Do Check: Sharad Malhotra And His Fiancée, Ripci Bhatia Were All 'Rock And Roll' At Their Sangeet Ceremony)
He had also stated, "I have always been marriage-phobic and the world knows about it. I love commitment but the idea of marriage gave me cold feet. And now that I am getting married, everyone is shocked...I have seen a couple of bad marriages but most of the bad thoughts are in your head. I am going forward in this marriage with a positive vibe."
