Mumbai, Feb 16 : Actress Swara Bhasker, who is known for her work in films like ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’, ‘Veere Di Wedding’, ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ and ‘Raanjhanaa’, has tied the knot with Fahad Ahmad, the president of Samajwadi Party’s youth wing in Maharashtra.
On Thursday, the actress shared a video with a montage of all their adorable moments while detailing their love story. The actress also shared that the couple had registered their wedding in court on January 6 under the Special Marriage Act.
The actress wrote in the caption, “Sometimes you search far & wide for something that was right next to you all along. We were looking for love, but we found friendship first. And then we found each other! Welcome to my heart @FahadZirarAhmad. It’s chaotic but it’s yours.”
The two met at a protest site in January 2020 and love took its course.
Fahad, who is a Mumbai-based political activist, graduated from the Aligarh Muslim University and completed his M.Phil in social work from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai.

Currently, Fahad is the Maharashtra unit chief of Samajwadi Yuvjan Sabha, the youth wing of the Samajwadi Party.
