In an era of daily soaps on television, which dealt with grave problems like converting to snakes and mongooses every now and then, and of course, punar janams, web series had come as a fresh breath of air. The path-breaking web content on OTT platforms came as a ray of sunshine for an entertainment-starved younger generation. And in 2014, when TVF came up with Permanent Roommates, in no time, Mikesh and Tanya made their way to our hearts. Mikesh a.k.a. Sumeet Vyas became the internet’s favourite boyfriend and since then, there has been no looking back for this talented actor.

Sumeet Vyas finally found Permanent Roommates and married Rab Se Sohna Isshq fame, Ekta Kaul on September 15, 2018. “Even though I gave her a ring, it’s me who found the diamond!” In real-life, Sumeet had embarked on his journey of ‘happily ever after’ with Ekta and a few days after their wedding, the newly-weds had posted official wedding photographs on their respective social media handles. While Sumeet had written, “Couldn’t have been happier...#happilyeverafter @ektakaul11”, Ekta had captioned it as “Mr and Mrs Vyas... #foreverafter @sumeetvyas you are my happy place.”
No matter how long back a celeb couple had tied the knot, we are always in for a treat in the form of throwback glimpses of their wedding. On April 28, 2020, Ekta Kaul had indulged in an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Instagram and had interacted with her fans. When a fan had asked her to share an unseen photo from her wedding, Ekta posted a hilarious picture with Sumeet. In the picture, while Ekta was caught taking a nap, Sumeet can be seen yawning at the mandap. Explaining the picture, Ekta had written, "Here! Also, yes, I passed out for a few minutes before the pheras happened."
A few months back, Sumeet Vyas had talked to Humans Of Bombay about his love story that went from “I’d been single for sometime" to "I gave her a ring". Revealing his moment of realisation that Ekta is the ‘one’ for him, Sumeet had said, "It's not one big moment when you know you've met 'the one'. It's how they make you feel everyday; if they make you a better person. And she does. But one stand out moment was last year during holi! I rode my motorcycle to a party and had a little bit of bhang. I was in no state to ride. She saw that and took the keys –I thought she was joking! I mean it was a Bullet! But she just got on and off we went, me in the backseat and my lady driving the bullet. I was thinking then, Man! I'm going to marry her! She's the one!"

And when did he ask Ekta Kaul to be his ‘forever’? Sumeet Vyas had retorted, “But, all of a sudden she left for Jammu because she realised acting wasn’t for her! I knew then that I wanted to do everything to make this work. I asked her to move back to our relationship–to give us a chance. Thankfully, she agreed, but I didn’t want to risk it, so this year on my birthday, I popped the question! She was so happy, she had a childlike smile & I swear even though I gave her a ring, it’s me who found the diamond!”
Almost two years into marital bliss, Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul had finally made the ‘baby on board’ announcement in April 2020. Announcing the their ‘Good Newwz’ to the world, Sumeet had posted some pictures, holding his wife, Ekta Kaul’s baby bump and had revealed that ‘Cool Junior’ is on its way. He had captioned the pictures as “Spending all that time at home, can be fruitful in many ways. In my case it’s life altering. #cooljr is on it’s way. #newroommate.” Ekta had posted a picture of Sumeet kissing her on her cheeks as they both held her baby bump. She captioned her post as “Proudly announcing our new project together. Introducing Jr. KaulVyas (soon) Created, Directed and Produced by US.... @sumeetvyas and I.”
Revealing Sumeet Vyas’ reaction when she had told him that she’s pregnant, Ekta Kaul had recalled in an exclusive interview with us, “He was sleeping and I called him at 6 in the morning. And he said give me 10 mins since he couldn’t register anything in his sleep. And then called back on sometime. And we had our moment.” (Also Read: Mahesh Babu's Wife, Namrata Shirodkar Recalls Being Pregnant With Their Son, Gautam During 'Pokiri')
