''The wedding is on December 12 in Jalandhar. That's Ginni's hometown. We wanted to keep it low key. But Ginni is the only daughter in her family. Her folks wanted the wedding to be on a lavish scale. And I completely understand their sentiments. My mother also wants the wedding to be lavish," said Kapil Sharma. 

Its the season of weddings. After Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh confirmed their wedding date, now comedian and TV anchor Kapil Sharma has revealed that he would be tying the knot by the end of this year. 

The stand-up comedian will get married to his longtime girlfriend Ginni Chatrath in Jalandhar on December 12, 2018. 

The actor, while speaking to a news agency, revealed that he wanted the wedding to be a low key event but his fiancee's family are keen on a high profile event. ''The wedding is on December 12 in Jalandhar. That's Ginni's hometown. We wanted to keep it low key. But Ginni is the only daughter in her family. Her folks wanted the wedding to be on a lavish scale. And I completely understand their sentiments. My mother also wants the wedding to be lavish." 

Kapil reminisced his brother's wedding and said, "During the time when my brother married, I had not started earning well. We just went as a small baraat (wedding procession) and got bhabhi (sister-in-law) home. But by the time my sister got married, I had begun to earn well. So we had a fairly large wedding. It was lavish by our standards."

He further added, "For the past few weeks, I've been promoting my Punjabi film. I didn't want to talk about the wedding during the promotions, although the media repeatedly kept asking."

Sharma, who was on a break for the greater part of 2018, is also going to be back on TV with a new show.
