Masaan actress Shweta Tripathi set to wed rapper SlowCheeta


What started out as a mid-air conversation five years ago is now culminating into a wedding for Masaan and Haraamkhor actress Shweta Tripathi and actor-rapper Chaitnya Sharma aka SlowCheeta on June 29.

"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," Shweta recounted as she broke the news of her wedding to IANS.

The proposal was rather romantic -- and much in tune to what both of them 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.

"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." The wedding will take place in Goa with "closest" family and friends in attendance.

Her upcoming project is the web series Mirzapur, apart from feature films Gone Kesh and Cargo. As for SlowCheeta, his latest song "Kripya dhyaan de" from the film High Jack was launched last week. He was also one of the four rappers to have collaborated with Bollywood star Ranveer Singh for a single. This apart, he has two songs, out of which one is with Papon, for the feature film Karwaan.
