Ssharad Malhotra will be tying the knot with his ladylove Ripci Bhatia. Ripci is a fashion designer from Delhi and they met each other because of Ssharad's sister. Earlier, Ssharad was called commitment phobic or marriage phobic by his exes.

When asked about these tags, Ssharad Malhotra said, "I do believe that marriages are made in heaven. I have had two relationships before. For me, commitment was never an issue. But whenever the topic of marriage cropped up, I’d start stepping back. Though there have been a lot of accusations, I have had great regards for my exes even after the relationship ended. This time, I’d call myself plain lucky to have found a partner and a friend in Ripci. It’s her simplicity that attracted me the most."

He added, "She never asked any question about my past relationships. Also, I realised, it was time I settled down. I can’t keep running away from marriage all my life, can I? So, I decided to take the plunge. Ripci is beautiful, independent and the most level-headed person I have ever met. Given our work schedule, timing is always a matter of concern, which leads to a lot of problems. I am glad Ripci understands the daily grind of an actor."

The couple will be getting married in a Punjabi wedding ceremony in the third week of April in Mumbai. They will be celebrating the wedding functions like sangeet, mehendi and haldi with much joy and grandeur. Ssharad and Ripci will be getting married at a Gurudwara and later, will have Hindu pheras in the evening.

Talking about the wedding plans, the actor said, "I am a bit nervous, but that’s obvious. In the last 12 years, I have got married seven or eight times on screen, but this is going to be real. So, I’d say, I am more excited now (laughs). My parents are also very happy. What more could I ask for? My mother and sister have already started planning for the functions. Since Ripci is a Sikhni, there will be dholwallahs playing at our wedding."

He added, "I have also arranged for a top line-up of DJs, one of whom is a friend from Kolkata. My mom, dad, sister and brother-in-law will all shake a leg that day. Friends from the TV fraternity will definitely be a part of my wedding functions in Mumbai. It’s going to an English-themed reception."

When asked what special wedding gift he has planned for Ripci, Ssharad said, "I am the best gift for her (laughs).” When quizzed about his honeymoon plans, Ssharad said, “While I love the hills, Ripci loves the sea. So, we are yet to finalise our honeymoon destination (laughs). After the wedding, I’ll be back to work. Maybe, we will plan something in the next few months."
