Well known for her roles in Masaan and HaraamKhor, Shweta Tripathi is going to tie the knot with rapper SlowCheeta on 29 June. SlowCheeta aka Chaitanya Sharma met the actress mid-air, whole on a Delhi to Mumbai flight, and they hit it off.
Chaitanya is five years younger to Shweta, but the actress quips she looks younger than her 32 years. Shweta broke the news of her wedding to IANS as she said, “We met because both of us were stepping in for other actors. So, from Bombay (Mumbai), we met in Delhi to perform and hardly spoke throughout. On our way back, we were seated next to each other. It was a 5 a.m. flight, so obviously the plan was to doze off. But we started talking and that was that”.
Her proposal story is even romantic than their first meeting. Shweta revealed, “He proposed at a place called Cuckoo Club, which is a performing place in Mumbai. He wanted to do it on stage because that’s how we met — for a play. He had told me he has a new play, so I went to see that… But it was the proposal”.
SlowCheeta, who has a tattoo of Shweta’s name and stands tall at 6 ft, delivered a monologue in front of a full audience about the journey that has led to the new journey they are ready to take.
“They say you fall in love, and I fell hard, from about 36,000 feet! Up in the air, into her heart and she already had mine. Relations start from the ground upwards, mine started in the sky. We spoke about whales and the ocean and everything we know. She found me, and I found Nemo.” The wedding will take place in Goa with “closest” family and friends in attendance.
On the work front, Shweta’s upcoming project is the web series Mirzapur, apart from feature films Gone Kesh and Cargo.
As for SlowCheeta, his latest song Kripya dhaan de from the film High Jack was launched last week. He was also one of the four rappers to have collaborated with Bollywood star Ranveer Singh for a single.
