Ssharad Malhotra and Ripci Bhatia
It was in April that Ssharad Malhotra got hitched to his longtime girlfriend and fashion designer Ripci Bhatia.

Elaborating further on his plans, he said, "It’s great to know that your loved one is going to make you feel special on this day. I love everything about this festival – getting up early to have sargi, phir chaand ko dekhna through a sieve and ending your partner’s fast by giving her water – it’s such a wonderful feeling. I will be heading to my home in Kolkata and plan to fast along with Ripci, though I haven’t told her that yet.”
