Parents & Siblings
Geetansha has a sister who is twelve years younger than her. In one of her self-written blogs, Geetansha mentioned the bond she shares with her younger sister and wrote,
My baby sister is 15 now. She was 12 when I left for college. We are like usual siblings; we fight but that’s only because we love each other. Also, we are inseparable. My sister was quite sad when I had to leave home for studying in a different city. We had stayed together for 12 long years afterall, 24 x 7 everyday ! But she always likes to be the ‘practical’ one between us who does not give away to emotions easily.”
On 7 March 2023, Geetansha got married to her longtime boyfriend, Ritesh Agarwal, an entrepreneur and the CEO of OYO Hotels. The couple met when they both were in college in Delhi in 2011. Businessman Aditya Ghosh, who was one of the guests invited to the marriage reception of Geetansha and Ritesh, shared a congratulatory post on Instagram along with the caption that read,
Many congratulations to @riteshagar and #Geetansha and here’s wishing them a lifetime of togetherness| Who knew that writing an engineering college guide would turn into 12 years of dating and a companion for a lifetime! So happy for my friend and colleague and former boss!”
