Swara announced her marriage to Fahad with a video earlier this year. The two met in January 2020. The actress, at the time of the dropping the fantastic news, tweeted, “Sometimes you search far and 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 Fahad Zirar Ahmad. It's chaotic but it's yours!”

Swara opened up about her relationship with Fahad. Speaking to a news portal, she said, “What I love about our relationship is that we started off as friends. For some reason, I always trusted him; he never did anything that felt like he was trying to leverage my 'celebrity status'. I felt like he was interested in me for who I am.” The actress added how things changed after her “surgery — not cosmetic!”.

“I had to be on bed rest for two weeks. I told him [Fahad Ahmad] about it, and his response made me feel seen. He didn’t judge, and that allowed me to share some personal, intimate details about me and my life, with him. He used to check on me twice a day during that time, and I was very touched by his concern," she said.

Swara is known for her work in films including Veere Di Wedding, Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu.
