The most dreaded thought for any couple is to meet their partner’s parents. They are sceptical if they will like you or not if they will be able to meet their expectation and million other questions run through their head. We live in a country where family's acceptance is as necessary as oxygen. And, what could be better if they accept you and you become a part of their family? Priyank Sharma’s girlfriend, Benafsha Soonawalla has over time become a part of Priyank’s family, and that is what every girlfriend wants!

For the uninitiated, a few months ago, Priyank had surprised his fans by finally accepting his relationship with Benafsha Soonawalla. On April 4, 2020, Priyank had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a picture with Benafsha and had written, "Confirmation", followed by a heart emoji. Benafsha had also shared the same picture on her Instagram handle and had captioned it as "Can’t nobody keep me like you. Call it unconventional. My love is habitual!" After this, the two have been pouring love on each other, and now, on the occasion of Priyank’s mother’s birthday, Benafsha has showered love on his mother too!
Benafsha Soonawalla took to her IG stories and shared an old video posted by her to wish her bae, Priyank’s mother, Vandana Sharma. Sharing the video on her story, she thanked her for treating her as a daughter and for all the unconditional love. She wrote, “Happy Birthday aunts. Got so close to you in a short span of time, you have loved me as if I were your own daughter. Thank you for the unconditional love, yummy parathas, your bright warm smile, adorable dance moves and our everyday gossip sessions. You will always be my adorable “aunts” no matter what. I love you. I really do. @sharma.vandana999” followed by a heart emoticon. The video post shared by Benafsha along with her birthday wish is from the Karaoke night she had with her ‘aunts’. Take a look:
While Benafsha shared her heartfelt feelings, Priyank was busy doing a countdown for his mother’s birthday. He started out by posting a monochrome picture of his mother on his IG handle, which he had captioned as “6 hours and 15 min to go for my cutoos birthday.” Later, he continued the countdown for his strongest woman’s birthday on his IG stories, sharing a series of pictures and videos on how his mother is getting ready for a birthday photoshoot. Take a look at the screengrabs below:
In an interview with ETimes, Priyank had opened up on his mom's relationship with Benafsha and had said, "My mom and Ben are quite close to each other. I speak to her parents as well and they are pretty cool. Ben stays here and she gels well. My mom knew about being us together since the very beginning and she never had any problem. Their bond is so strong that sometimes I have to step aside. I let them deal it together. I have told them not to bring me in between when I have to choose anything."
In the same interview, Priyank had revealed the reason for announcing his relationship amidst the lockdown. He had said, "Right now from where I see, I feel the world is ending. It has already started. Ben and I were sitting and I told her that there are a lot of uncertainties. It was my idea, that let’s not hide this…this is very pure… God forbid if anything happens to one of us. We have been together for a couple of years now. We had our own reasons to not let it out so far but now we thought let’s reveal it to the world."

Last month, in an interview with TellyChakkar, Benafsha was asked about her marriage plans with Priyank. To which, the actress had replied, "Well, a lot of people don’t know that I am only 23 years old. I am very young for marriage. You can ask me the same question probably after seven to eight years."
