Comedian-actor Kapil Sharma who tied the knot with Ginni Chatrath last December, has another reason to celebrate.
A source close to the couple reveals that Ginni is pregnant and the couple has already started preparing for the baby with the ecstatic dad-to-be accompanying her on shopping sprees. Friends and family have also been informed.
“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, comedy 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. 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,” adds the source.
It was the first to report that Kapil and Ginni were tying the knot in December. After initially denying the news, the actor admitted that he would be marrying his long-time ladylove.
They took the vows with traditional Sikh and Hindu ceremonies on December 12 at Ginni’s hometown in Jalandhar. Later, they hosted a reception in Delhi for family and friends and another in Mumbai for the film fraternity. Singers Daler Mehndi and Gurdas Maan were among those who performed and Ranveer Singh with wife Deepika Padukone, Rekha, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Anil Kapoor, Kriti Sanonand Archana Puran Singh with husband Parmeet Sethi were among those who attended. The couple couldn’t go on a honeymoon immediately because of Kapil’s hectic schedule but the two holidayed in Amsterdam in March.
Meanwhile, buzz is, the 38-year-old stand-up comedian-actor has been offered the Hindi remake of the 2015 Malayalam romcom Two Countries.
The film originally featured Dileep and Mamta Mohandas in the lead. The actor is yet to confirm if he is part of the project but has liked the story. Kapil had made his film debut with Abbas-Mustan’s 'Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon' in 2015. His second film was his home production, 'Firangi'. Adjudged the most-viewed stand-up comedian in the world, Kapil returned with comedy show on December 29. Recast in a new format, it arrived a fortnight after his marriage, without Sunil Grover but with Krushna Abhishek, along with former co-stars like Bharti Singh, Sumona Chakravarti, Kiku Sharda and Chandan Prabhakar. The comedy show is produced by Salman Khan and in the last six months has gone back to being a family favourite.
