It was on December 12, 2018, when Kapil Sharma tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Ginni Chatrath. The couple exchanged vows as per Hindu and Sikh customs. Rumours were recently rife that Kapil and Ginni are all set to welcome a baby just five months after the grand wedding, the report had also claimed that Kapil’s mother Janak Rani had also flown down to Mumbai to stay with her daughter-in-law, though there is no official confirmation from the couple that either Ginni is expecting or not.
A while back we had shared with you a report by Pinkvilla which claimed that Kapil and Ginni are planning to go on a babymoon for 10 days. The report could be read as “Kapil will be taking off to Canada for around 10 days with wife Ginni as he hasn’t taken her for a long-overdue proper honeymoon so far. Ginni who is almost 3-4 months pregnant now has been very much patient with Kapil when it comes to adjusting to his schedule, and hence, Kapil has decided to take this time off.” And thus Kapil and Ginni were spotted at the airport complementing each other in black as they finally leave for their honeymoon in Canada. Ginni was all smiles for the camera and was exuding pregnancy glow as she flaunted her baby bump. Check out the picture:
To give you more details about Ginni’s pregnancy the couple is rumoured to become parents on December this year. A report had also suggested that Kapil’s mom Janak Rani has also flown to Mumbai to stay to take care of her expecting daughter in law. A source has told Mumbai Mirror, “They got the good news just a few days ago, Ginni’s due date is in December. Kapil has been busy with the shoot of his eponymous comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show, but he has now scheduled his shoot in a way that he gets to spend more with her. She too has been accompanying him on the shoot so they can spend time together.” The source has further added, “His colleagues ensure that she is well looked after on the set. At home, Kapil’s mother is taking care of her. Ginni’s family has also flown down from Jalandhar.”
On May 26, 2019, Usha Uthup had appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show, and the legendary singer had dropped a major hint on Ginni’s pregnancy. In a glimpse shown Kapil had said, “Yeh kaun hai itna chota bacha? Dekho kitni choti and pyari audience ayi hai”, upon spotting a baby as one of his audiences. To which, Ushaji had instantly shared, “Is that yours? Not yours na?. To which Kapil came up with a hilarious reply, He had said, “Nahin mera abhi kahan, abhi bhi 9 mahine to lagte hain.”
Coming back to Kapil and Ginni’s love story, their love story is quite interesting, in an interview with Bombay Times Kapil shared how love blossomed between them. He shared how it all started when they were in college. 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. 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 ones who don’t know Ginni’s father once rejected Kapil’s proposal. Revealing about the incident, “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.”
Well, we are really happy for Kapil and Ginni and we wish Ginni easy and healthy pregnancy.
