Sasural Simar Ka actor Manish Raisinghan is all set to tie the knot with Sangeita Chauhaan. The couple who has been dating each other for nearly two years now, will be taking their nuptial vows in a Gurudwara on June 30. For the unversed, Manish and Sangeita worked together in the show Ek Shringaar-Swabhiman. Talking about marrying the love of his life, Manish told an entertainment portal that the decision was taken within a day. He added that Sangeita was taken aback with the sudden plan and then the two made their parents meet via video call.
"It may surprise you but the decision of getting married to each other was taken in a day's time. During this whole lockdown, I was extremely busy with my song and one day at the breakfast table, I told my father I am planning to take a day off today and in a quirky way he said, 'off le raha hai to shaadi bhi karle.' It was a joke but it hit my mind. I instantly called Sangeita and said let's get married, tell your parents to speak to my parents and she was shocked and said, 'Achanak se kaise baat karu? Things don't happen like this' but I convinced her and said let's make them meet on Zoom call today at 4 and she somehow agreed. They met via the video call and discussed things and by evening the wedding date was also zeroed down," Manish told.
Speaking of getting married amid the pandemic, Manish said Sangeita and his parents won't be attending the ceremony considering their age and safety. "My mom doesn't keep well and I don't want to risk her health by taking her out in this pandemic. Similarly, Sangeita's parents are also old and hence we decided that we will go ahead without their presence. Will get married, come home and take their blessings. They also agreed to the decision," he added. Only 5 people will be present at the wedding while the rest of the family members will join virtually.
Recalling his love story with Sangeita, Manish said that the two never bonded on the sets of Ek Shringaar-Swabhiman. He revealed that Suchitra Pillai's house party brought them together and friendship gradually progressed into love. "We had done a show together called Ek Shringaar-Swabhiman but never interacted much. Later there was a party at Suchitra Pillai ma'am's house, where we met again and started talking to each other. Then we become good friends, best friends and then a couple. It's been a year and half that we are dating but before that it was just friendship which gradually got converted into love," Manish said.
