Popular television actress, Mreenal Deshraj is loved for her stellar acting skills and sartorial fashion sense. She has swooned our hearts with her performances in TV shows like, Bharat Ka Veer Putra — Maharana Pratap, Doli Saja Ke, Ishqbaaz and Naagin 3. However, Mreenal's love life wasn't a bed of roses. In many previous interviews, she had revealed her five failed relationships in the past.
Finally, Mreenal Deshraj has found her soulmate in Ashim Mattan, a healthcare professional and has tied the knot with him. For the unversed, the duo had met at a common friends party in September 2021, and it was love at first sight. And on June 9, 2022, the much-in-love duo got engaged in an intimate ceremony in Goa, amidst the presence of their respective family members, relatives and friends.
On July 5, 2022, Mreenal Deshraj had tied the knot with the love of her life, Ashim Mattan. And on today, i.e., on July 8, 2022, they arranged an intimate mehendi ceremony and are about to throw a reception party on July 10, 2022, for their close friends and relatives. In an interview with the Etimes, Mreenal shared that she and her hubby aren't traditional people, and as they wanted to register their marriage, they did it with the blessings of their parents. Sharing the excitement to start a new journey with Ashim, the actresses said:
“Ashim and I are not traditional and had never planned to have an elaborate wedding function. After we got engaged, the plan was to register the marriage, which we did after taking the blessings of our parents. We realised that we couldn’t live without each other so decided to settle down. I’m just plain lucky that I found Ashim - he pampers me to the hilt but at the same time keeps me grounded. He is a man of his word and it feels great to have a person like him be my partner for this lifetime. To cut the long story short, we registered our marriage at the court on July 5 and now, we are throwing a party to celebrate our union with our family and friends.”
Earlier, in a conversation with ETimes, Mreenal had opened up about her first meeting with her now-husband, Ashim and how love happened between them. She mentioned that she had felt a spark within her the moment she made she made eye contact with Ashim. Calling it the best phase of her life, Mreenal admitted her naiveness towards knowing the real meaning of love which she had discovered after meeting with Ashim. Talking about the same, she had said:
"It would hands down be the best evening of my life (smiles). There was a spark right off the bat as soon as we locked eyes at the party. We felt a strong pull as soon as we saw each other. Soon, we started chatting with each other and before we knew it; four hours had flown by. Earlier, I was under the impression that I knew what love was, but when I met Ashim, I realised that I was quite naïve in that space. I've been open and honest about my understanding of an ideal partner, my past relationships, and how I have been unsuccessful in love before. "
In the same interview, Mreenal also threw light on the huge age difference of 10 years between her and Ashim. Reflecting on the same, the actress clearly mentioned that for the much-in-love duo, age is just a number, and mentally they're young and full of life. She had explained:
"Ashim isn't mentally 34 and I'm not mentally 43. So, we're somewhere in between and that's where we connect. Most people worry about age differences because of the assumption that the older half of the couple will slow down in life because of aging. While that is true, there are trendsetters in all age groups and that makes me think that everything is a state of mind. You won't slow down if you don't want to slow down."
Congratulations to Mreenal and Ashim for their court marriage!
