Meet Anisha Ramakrishna’s Mystery Husband — Finally!
Several months after confirming that she tied the knot, Anisha Ramakrishna has finally revealed who her mystery husband is.
Shortly before the third season of Family Karma premiered on November 6, Anisha Ramakrishna confirmed that she had secretly gotten married about a month earlier — though she had yet to reveal her husband’s identity.
On the show, Anisha shared some details about her relationship with her Arizona-based mystery man, and she opened up about how she had given him a Cinco de Mayo proposal deadline. Though viewers never got to meet Anisha’s now-husband on Family Karma, ahead of the Season 3 finale on February 26, the couple shared with People several photos from their wedding.
The Currently fashion designer publicly confirmed for the first time that she had married 36-year-old vascular surgeon Dr. Anand Tarpara at her parents’ Miami home on October 8, 2022. She told People that the two met online in 2021 and moved in together after about eight months of dating.
For their autumn nuptials in Florida, Anisha and Anand kept things small and intimate (they invited “immediate family and very few friends”), and they picked their “auspicious” wedding date because it was around Diwali.
“Oct[ober] 8 is the start of the year for us and all good things in Hinduism. We wanted to just get married versus plan this huge wedding and then we’re just delaying it for another year. When you’re older, I think it’s different,” Anisha told the outlet. “It’s more about the marriage, not necessarily the wedding.”
Their Family Karma friends Vishal Parvani and Amrit Kapai may have chosen multiday celebrations for their respective weddings, but Anisha and Anand went in their own direction due to their busy schedules.
“We did a traditional Indian Puja, which is a ritual with the prayers and the priest. I also did henna on my hands. We had a Mehndi day. I think there’s just two things I didn’t do, which is the welcome dance, a Sangeet, and the Haldi, which is where you put the turmeric all over your body,” she said. “I just did it in a very closed setting.”
Anisha has finally gone public with her husband, but she noted that she still plans to maintain as much of his privacy as she can. In an Instagram video, Anisha clarified why she kept his identity a secret on Family Karma.
“Private till permanent, it’s a thing. It’s cultural… It’s giving single till ring,” she explained. “You don’t just put a guy on social media or on television or any platform when there’s no ring — or, forget ring — [until] like marriage papers have been signed.”
Since the two have made their union official, Anisha is ready to reveal a bit more about her relationship.
“Now we’re permanent. Now you can see the guy. It’s not that I didn’t want to show who my husband is. It’s that A) he wasn’t my husband, B) he is a very private person, and C) I’m a traditional [Indian] girly, you know the vibe, you know what we do. We don’t post any guy, and then one fine day, we just post our wedding photos. That’s what we do.”
In addition to changing her relationship status, one other major thing is now different for the Miami native.
“Now that you’re married, I’m actually happy to see you,” her mom, Chitra Ramakrishna, said at the end of the Instagram video.
