Bigg Boss 2 and Roadies 5 winner Ashutosh Kaushik tied the knot with Arpita Tiwari on April 26. Due to the lockdown, the wedding took place at the bride’s house in Noida.
Kaushik posted a video of the wedding on his Instagram account. In the video, he is seen taking pheras on his terrace. While a pandit wearing a mask helps him take the vows, his friends keep teasing him to practice social distancing.
In an exclusive interaction with indianexpress.com, Ashutosh Kaushik shared, “I met Arpita Tiwari through common friends. We started meeting often and connected on a mental level. This is when the families got involved. Since the dates were already fixed, we decided to take our vows.”
Kaushik remarked getting married with a few family members was quite convenient for him. He said, “People spend lakhs on big fat weddings, when it’s just a way to celebrate the union of two hearts. I always wanted a low key wedding, and the lockdown gave me the opportunity to do the same. Only our immediate families and a few close friends attended the ceremony so that we could follow social distancing and other protocols.”
The reality TV star also shared that he has contributed the entire sum kept aside for the wedding to PM Cares fund. “I even told Ankita’s family that they don’t need to spend a penny, and neither should spend anything on buying gifts. They should rather donate the money so that it can be used for a better purpose,” he shared.
When asked what’s keeping him away from showbiz, Kaushik said, “I am based in Noida, and running a production house. We make shows for YouTube and I also have my dhabba, which keeps me busy.”
