‘Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke’ actor Shaheer Sheikh and wife Ruchikaa Kapoor are celebrating 6 months of married life today. On this special occasion, Shaheer took to his Instagram account and shared a loved-up photo with Ruchikaa and wrote, “6 months and counting #togetherness.”
In the photo, Shaheer looked handsome in a white shirt while Ruchikaa looked beautiful in a floral dress. Many colleagues from the television industry commented on the photo. ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ actor, Mohsin Khan complimented Shaheer and Ruchikaa and wrote, “mashaAllah”, meanwhile, Kushal Tandon wrote, “6 months, time is flying.”
Shaheer and Ruchikaa decided to keep it simple and went for court marriage in November 2020, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the uninformed, Ruchikaa is the Creative Producer & Executive Vice President at Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures Ltd. As the creative producer, Ruchikaa has worked in several films including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor starrer Veere Di Wedding and Laila Majnu.
She also worked in Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao starrer Mental Hai Kya, Jabariya Jodi, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare, and Dream Girl.
In 2014, she was appointed as the Marketing Head for Balaji Motion Pictures making her the youngest female to be given such a post in a major motion picture studio. Following this, she headed the marketing campaigns of films such as Lipstick Under My Burkha, Veere Di Wedding, Half Girlfriend, and Ek Villain.
Earlier during an interaction with Pinkvilla, Shaheer spoke at length about Ruchikaa and how he realised she’s ‘the one’. The actor stated, “We travelled together. Generally, you feel like you can go mad, you can have fun, only when your friends are there, not with your partner. You think of fun, you think of your friends. But even if we go to a hospital for a regular check-up, we are crazy together. So I felt like this is the right combination, I can be myself and I can have fun.”
