Marriage is the best thing to happen to me: Kapil Sharma
I have been working 14 years nonstop. It’s important to earn money but it’s also important to spend quality time with your loved ones. KAPIL SHARMA COMEDIAN
Maine shaadi rokne ki bahut koshish ki, par kuch nahin hua,” laughs Kapil Sharma. The actorcomedian is looking forward to tying the knot with Ginni Chatrath on December 12 in Amritsar, followed by a reception two days later. He will also host a party in Mumbai.
“Jokes apart, I am ecstatic to be with Ginni and I know, this marriage will be a huge change in my life. Discipline aayega. She takes good care of me and is a huge support in my life. People like me are surrounded by many people at work, but when you come home, ghar khali lagta hai,” says Kapil.
Kapil and Ginni met during college and he had introduced her to his mother back then. As there was a huge difference in their social status, things didn’t move forward. Later he came to Mumbai to participate Laughter Challenge and they rarely met. “We did not have the usual dating scenario, both our families are conservative. Last year, when I was going through a low phase, she was there with me throughout. That’s when I felt if she is with me in my low phase, then she is the one for me,” he says.
Kapil had announced his love for Ginny in March 2017, before he went out of action for almost a year as both his TV shows ended abruptly. “Back then, we decided we would get married but couldn’t lock a date due to my hectic schedule. My mum stays in Amritsar and worries about me. Now that I am getting married, I think it was destined. I feel marriage is an essential part in our lives as it brings stability. The next phase is parenthood, which is another important step in a person’s life. I have seen people change after marriage, as they want to go home to be with their wives or kids. I want to experience it all as well. Being a bachelor, having your fun is good but only for a while. Later you look for stability. I feel marriage is the best thing to happen to me.”
The comedian said his ‘low phase’ turned out to be one of self-realisation. “During the last year, I realised I’ve never given time to myself. I’ve been working for 14 years non-stop. I realised one should take a break and rejuvenate. I travelled a lot, spent time with my family and friends and realised everybody loves me so much. It’s important to earn money but it is also important to spend time with your loved ones. In the last three to four months, I visited Amritsar [the city he hails from] thrice. In all these years, I used to go only once in a year for just two days.
