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 Ginni 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.
