Just like any ordinary couple, actor Ssharad Malhotra and his wife Ripci, who is a fashion designer by trade are looking forward to Karwa Chauth. The festival is celebrated with much excitement, where wives fast and pray to god for the long life of their husbands. Ripci, who got married to Ssharad on April 20 earlier this year is no different.
Recently, the couple sat down for a candid interview, in which they talked about their plans for the festival of Karva Chauth, their future and more. When being questioned about their preparations for the festival of Karva Chauth, Ripci said, “I find it very romantic! It’ like two-three day of celebration, applying mehendi (henna), dressing up and the ceremony itself looks so fun.”
She continued, “My mom and mother-in-law will be guiding me throughout and prepare sargi (morning meal for the one who’s fasting) for me. I’m looking forward to it.”
Usually, it’s a big task for wives to stay the whole day without eating and drinking anything. Ssharad was questioned if he would fast alongside his wife, upon which he replied, “I’ll be working all day long for my daily soap and fly in the evening to Kolkata, so fasting and not drinking water throughout the day will be very difficult. But yes, I’ll give all my support and love to her.
He further added, “I might play around by teasing her a bit by sending pictures of me feasting on yummy food all day, and I’ll also eat in front of her.”
The couple were then questioned about their future and possibly if they were planning to have kids, upon which Ripci revealed, “As of now, we aren’t thinking about it. But may be in a year a two… We want to make sure that we are ready as parents, and have time to raise the child on our own without depending on a nanny.”
