The Masaan actor Shweta Tripathi, who got engaged in April to actor-rapper boyfriend Chaitnya Sharma aka SlowCheeta, will now be tying the knot in Goa on June 29. Shweta does not want a regular Indian wedding and she makes sure that it is not just filled with rituals. They will neither have a sangeet ceremony nor a reception. The couple admits that they are bored with the usual rituals after attending too many weddings of their friends lately. “We want our guests to have a really good time so there will be a mehendi, followed by a party on June 27 for colleagues and friends who won’t be able to make it to Goa. The wedding will lead to a pool and pyjama party on June 30,” says the groom to be. He even added by saying that they will be dancing for three days and at some point take over the DJ console.
Shweta says that they have danced at too many functions earlier and now wants her friends and family to surprise her with their performances. Since her parents are in Delhi, Shweta said that she often video calls them to discuss wedding things. She said, “We have a team handling the prep but I keep video-chatting with my parents who live in Delhi about bindis, bangles and the colours of our clothes.” Shweta will be wearing a Sonam and Paras Modi-designed sharara for the Mehendi, for her wedding, she will be wearing a lehenga by Shubhika Davda and a floor-length, Rebecca Dewan dress for the pool party. Cheeta, on the other hand, will be wearing a sherwani designed by Kunal Rawal for the wedding and a Shantanu and Nikhil outfit for the party on June 27.

Shweta even talked about how the two bonded over the same passion. She said, “Films are also a big part of our lives and we’re also fond of travelling, music and food, with biryani being our most favourite on cheat days.” Talking about her career after marriage, she said, “I always wanted to be an actor and I won’t put an expiry date on that dream just because I am getting married. Your life can change after marriage, but your identity shouldn’t.”
