As of late, it was reported that director Vikram Bhatt secretly married last year Shwetambari Soni. The development was soon confirmed by Vikram’s mentor, Mahesh Bhatt. Also, presently, in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Vikram opened up with regards to his mysterious romantic tale and uncovered that he met Shweta through a common friend. “She is an art curator and has an art gallery with her friend. They were supposed to have a painting exhibition and I was supposed to write some poetry. The exhibition didn’t happen, but Shweta and I connected,” says Vikram.
He added, “We kept in touch. It was a slow burn relationship.”
Vikram requested his boss Mahesh Bhatt to not come for the ceremony. “ I didn’t want to risk him in the Covid times. I told him, Boss, I am getting married but you shouldn’t come because I don’t want you to risk it. He understood and of course, Shweta and I met him later,” he recalls. Vikram insists that his daughter is now a grown-up individual and understands the complexities of a relationship. When asked about the reaction of children on the second wedding he answers, “She is not a little girl anymore, understands relationships, love and what dating is. Her reaction has been mature. As far as Shweta’s sons are concerned, I think they were at first not happy to have me around but have since sufficiently warmed up to me. But we are friends now.”
Vikram closes down informing that he talks about all his scripts with Shwetambari .“She enjoys films and has the innocence of outside. She is not tainted by biases of the film industry and this is what makes her see things. She is very encouraging of new ideas. I have now decided to make films that are different, regardless of the genre. They need to be unique and challenging. I started my career in 1992 and the next year it will be 3 decades of being in this place. It’s time to have fun,” he signs off.
