Vikram Bhatt On His Secret Wedding With Shwetambari Soni: 'At My Age, You Marry Not For Social Confirmation But Personal Gratification'
Vikram Bhatt married art connoisseur Shwetambari Soni in a hush-hush wedding ceremony last year. However, it was on Wednesday that people learned about his second marriage. Many, including his own daughter Krishna, found out about the nuptials much later. The filmmaker has now, in an interview, shared intimate details about his second marriage with Shwetambari.

Bhatt revealed that he and Shweta met through a common friend and that she is an art curator and has an art gallery of her own. “There was supposed to be an exhibition where I was asked to write some poetry and she was there. A common friend introduced us; one thing led to another and we found ourselves in a relationship,” Vikram Bhatt told Etimes.

When asked who said 'I love you' first, Vikram revealed, “It is as romantic as it was when one is younger. We first drifted into a companionship; words were not necessary. I seriously don't remember who said 'I love you' first. It felt more like something that had happened together.”


Bhatt's daughter, Krishna from his former wife Aditi Bhatt, was also shocked to find out about his marriage. The filmmaker said he didn't ask his daughter's permission to remarry.

“Krishna is now old enough to understand relationships. I didn't have to ask her. She knows her dad has a private life that is his,” he said.

Vikram Bhatt also spilled the beans on keeping his marriage a secret. He said, “Bhatt saab (Mahesh Bhatt) knew it; he is my boss and a boss knows everything. I had told a few friends and I hadn't told a few friends. I didn't feel the need to announce it. At my age, you marry not for social confirmation but personal gratification.”

Vikram Bhatt took the route of social media to announce his second marriage. He penned a special post for his wife on the occasion of her birthday.
