Rapper SlowCheeta set to wed actress Shweta Tripathi

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

SlowCheeta, as he prefers to be called, is five years younger to Shweta, but the actress quips she looks younger at 32.

"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 am 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.

SlowCheeta, who has a tattoo of Shweta's name and stands tall at 6 ft, delivered a monologue in front of a full audience about the journey that has led to the new journey they are ready to take.

"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 æclosestÆ family and friends in attendance.

SlowCheetaÆs latest song Kripya Dhaan 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 -- one with Papon -- for the feature film Karwaan.

Shweta -- daughter of Delhi's former Chief Secretary P.K. Tripathi -- came to Mumbai over a decade ago. And her aim was not to become a Bollywood actor.
