Shweta Tripathi, best known for her performances in Masaan and Haraamkhor, is all set to tie the knot with her beau, actor-rapper, Chaitanya Sharma aka Slow Cheeta on June 29.
Shweta and Chaitnya are dating since last 5 years. SlowCheeta, as he prefers to be called, is five years younger to Shweta, but the actress quips she looks younger at 32.
“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,” Shweta recounted as she broke the news of her wedding to IANS.
“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.” she added.
Chaitanya, who reportedly has a tattoo of Shweta’s name delivered a monologue in front of a room filled with theatre enthusiasts about the journey that led to the new journey that they’re about to take ahead. “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,” he said.
The wedding will take place in Goa with “closest” family and friends in attendance.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Shweta is gearing up for her upcoming project , which is the web series titled Mirzapur, apart from other feature films like Gone Kesh and Cargo. On the other hand, Chaitanya’s latest song, “Kripya dhyaan 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. This apart, he has two songs — one with Papon — for the feature film “Karwaan”.
