Masan and Haramkhor actress Shweta Tripathi is all set to tie the knot with her beau Chaitnya Sharma aka Slow Cheeta on 29th June. Shweta and actor-rapper Chaitnya Sharma met on a flight which led to a conversation. The mid-air conversation has finally concluded into marriage. SlowCheeta, as he loves to be called, is five years younger to Shweta but she quips that she looks younger even at the age of 32.
While making the announcement of her wedding, she recounted, “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.”
The proposal was made public through Slow Cheeta’s Instagram story. The proposal was rather romantic where Slow Cheeta kneeled down and proposed to his lady love. He proposed Shweta in the place that they both love—theatre.
“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,” said Shweta.
Slow Cheeta also has a tattoo of Shweta’s name and stands tall as 6 feet and delivered a monologue about their journey so far and said, “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.”

Shweta and Slow Cheeta will be tieing the knot in Goa with close friends and family in attendance. Shweta never aims to become a Bollywood actor but her love for theatre since her childhood brought her closer to the industry where she has made a place for herself. Shweta also has a theatre group named ‘AllMyTea Productions’. Before her film journey started, Shweta was featured in Disney channel’s ‘Kya Mast Hai Life’ and she has been also seen in web series ‘The Trip’ along with Lisa Haydon, Mallika Dua, Sapna Pabbi.
Slow Cheeta’s latest song ‘Kripya dhaan de’ from the film High Jack was launched last week. He is one of the four rapper rappers who has collaborated with Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh for a single. He has also collaborated with Papon for a song in the feature film Karwaan.
