While we were excitedly waiting for June 16, 2019, to arrive for Former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen's brother, Rajeev Sen and TV actress, Charu Asopa’s lavish wedding, a pop up on our social media timelines gave us a pleasant surprise. Along with a ‘lost in each other’s eyes’ pictures from their court wedding, Rajeev and Charu had written, "I Rajeev Sen take Charu Asopa as my lawful wife #rajakibittu" and "I Charu Asopa take Rajeev Sen as my lawful husband #rajakibittu", as their caption announcing their marriage registration.

The court marriage was followed by the pre-wedding functions including engagement, mehendi, sangeet and haldi, and finally, the wedding as per Rajasthani and Bengali traditions. Soon after Rajeev Sen and Charu Asopa’s lavish destination wedding in Goa, everyone was eagerly waiting for their post-marriage look. Rajeev treated his fans with the newly-wedded couple’s first flight picture and had captioned it, "First flight together and that too as husband and wife.” Charu looked gorgeous in a saree and sindoor and her husband couldn’t stop himself from giving a sweet peck on her cheeks for how beautiful she was looking.
Now that Rajeev Sen and Charu Asopa (now Charu Asopa Sen) have returned from Goa, the Sen family has performed the griha pravesh rituals for their bahu. The nayi naveli dulhan was welcomed in the Sen family following the Bou Baran rituals which includes aarti, Ululudhvani in the background made by the ladies in the family and the bride stepping into a large plate containing lac dye (red in colour) and milk, and enters the new house leaving colourful footprints on the floor. Charu was welcomed in Rajeev’s family in the most loving way and was showered with warmth and endearment.
Rajeev Sen and Charu Asopa Sen, on their wedding, looked like a match straight out of heaven but do you know if it was love at first sight for them or not? In an interview with the Bombay Times, Charu had earlier stated, "After our first meeting, we had decided to catch up again over coffee, but I left for my hometown, Bikaner. I was on a much-needed break after my show, Jiji Maa, ended. In fact, I hadn’t decided when to return. However, as luck would have it, I was offered KarnSangini and had to report on the set the very next day. I texted Rajeev from the set and told him that we could meet for coffee. I had assumed that the meeting would end in half an hour. However, we went on talking for hours until I told him that I had to leave as I had an early call time the next day. We started chatting, spending time together and the rest, as they say, is history. I don’t know if I can call it love at first sight, but it looks like that.” (Also Read: Saif Ali Khan And Wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan To Work Together On A Same Project After 5 Years?)
What is that one thing that Rajeev Sen and Charu Asopa Sen adore about each other? Charu had remarked, "Rajeev is good-looking and honest. He is more romantic among the two of us. Also, he pampers me and takes care of me. He feels that I am real, simple and without any facade.” Further sharing interesting insights about their relationship, Charu had continued, “Both of us are looking at a relationship for keeps. The best aspect of our relationship is that we are transparent. We know about each other’s past and have never felt the need to hide anything from each other.”
Charu Asopa Sen had looked resplendent as a bride in crimson red and golden lehenga, a heavy traditional necklace, a nose ring and a matha patti, and was indeed a treat to eyes, while her husband Rajeev Sen had looked royal in a white ensemble with a royal safa tied on his head and a red shawl thrown away stylishly around one of his arms. Charu and Rajeev sported same outfits for their Bengali wedding too, accentuating it with topor and mukoot.
