Veteran actor Ashish Vidyarthi got hitched for the second time at 60 on Thursday with Rupali Barua in a Kolkata Club. It was an intimate registry marriage as suggested by the reports. The pictures were floated online.
In the pictures, Ashish is decked up in a Mundu from Kerela, while Rupali chose a white and golden Mekhela Chador from Assam paired with golden jewellery. Mentioning about the wedding, the actor spoke to Times Of India, “At this stage of my life, getting married to Rupali is an extraordinary feeling. We had a court marriage in the morning, followed by a get-together in the evening.”
Rupali is from Guwahati and is a established entrepreneur. Her upscale fashion outlet has made her a known figure in Kolkata. While, Ashish too on the hindsight kept visiting Kolkata many times in his vlogs.
When asked about when and how the duo met for the first time, Ashish told TOI, “Oh, that’s a long story. Will share it some other time.” “We met some time ago and decided to take it forward. But both of us wanted our wedding to be a small family affair,” added Rupali. She also briefly opened up about what drew her to the actor who is known for complex and dark roles in the industry. She further averred, “He is a beautiful human being and a great soul to be with.”
According to the reports, Ashish and Rupali’s reception was witnessed post the intimate wedding affair.
On the work front, the actor last appeared in Trial by Fire and Kuttey.
