Seems like the world is on an engagement spree! The vibe from Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s engagement, puja and roka ceremony still hasn’t settled down, when we have a news of another celebrity engagement. Here, we are talking about long-time, much-in-love couple, Deeksha Kanwal Sonalkar and her beau, who is soon-to-make his Bollywood debut in the film, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, Jason Tham.

The couple had met on the set of a same show that they were working and one of their co-stars had played cupid. In an interview with TellyChakkar, Deeksha had shared, “Yes, we are in love, but had kept it hush-hush. The love story started when he was doing &TV’s Agent Raghav and I was doing a cameo in one of the episodes. My friend Aahana Kumra was also part of the show. She played Cupid in our love story.”
The couple who had kept their relationship away from the public eye finally revealed to the world about their relationship and how! If you happen to scroll through their social media pictures, you will realise how much the couple are in love with each other. But we have a bigger news for you! It was reported sometime back that Deeksha and Jason are quite serious with each other and have decided to introduce each other to their families. But guess what? The couple not only made their relationship official to their families, but also had an intimate engagement ceremony yesterday (August 22, 2018)! Sharing a picture of a cute lip-lock, the couple announced the news to the world. Want to take a look at the images and videos from the engagement ceremony? Here you go! (Don't Miss!

Aren’t all the pictures breathtaking? It was the beautiful Deeksha’s birthday sometime back and the super-cute actor and filmmaker in-the-making, posted two beautiful pictures and a heartfelt note for his to-be Missus. The note could be read as, “Happy birthday to the most gorgeous woman I know! May you shine brighter than the sun and all your wishes come true ! Hopefully this year and the coming years be extraordinary!! Waiting for a lot more trips with you!!! Happy birthday love!!! You deserve all happiness and success #happybirthday #deekshasonalkar #love #sweet #wish #happy #couple #america #brooklynbridge #photograph #camera #picture.” Here are the snaps:
And do you know how Jason had proposed to the Maharana Pratap star? The former had taken Deeksha to meet his family! And yes, Deeksha herself shared about the same and revealed, “On 5 April, he took to me Delhi to meet his family. I spent a lovely time with them. So, we both were chatting and he told me that he loved me. I was ecstatic.” Isn’t that super-sweet? But you still want something sweeter? The couple regard themselves with two names that the both of them had given to each other. Deeksha further revealed, “I call him Mushu and he calls me Babs and Chonu-Monu.” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Shows Off Alleged Beau Ranbir Kapoor's Jersey Number With A 'Pyar Ka Izhaar' Message)
Now that the couple is engaged, is marriage anytime soon on the cards for them. Speaking about marriage plans, Deeksha had opened-up in an earlier interview and said, “Both the families know about the relationship but marriage would have to wait. We are young and would want to build our careers first.”
Jason and Deeksha, tonnes of congratulations and love to you for your engagement! We wish you truckloads of happiness in the future.
