Kajol and Ankit exchanged rings on November 24, 2018, in her hometown Uttar Pradesh in an intimate ceremony. The actress looked every bit of royal in a pale blue lehenga choli and diamond jewellery. On the other hand, the groom-to-be wore a dark blue suit with a pocket square. (You May Also Like: Inside Aishwarya Rai And Abhishek Bachchan New Rs. 21 Crore Apartment In Mumbai, See Pics)
Not just the couple, even the venue looked stunning as it was beautifully decorated with flowers and lights. From dancing to posing happily for the camera, Kajol and Ankit’s engagement snaps are a treat to watch. Here, take a look at the pictures and videos:
In an interview with Bollywood Life, the actress shared that she was unsure about tying the knot so soon, but it was her fiancé’s confidence that motivated her to do so. Kajol was quoted as saying, "I am feeling really happy. I was not really sure about marriage initially because I wanted to get married after like five years as I was not prepared for it. But Ankit's confidence and his efforts made me realise that we can take this ahead. Otherwise, I was sure that I won't get married before 30 years and I think I have taken the right decision."

The couple has made their relationship work despite the different fields of work and time differences. She further said, "I really feel it’s a personal choice, in my case I love acting, and I just can't quit because I know how I have built my career. But people have their perceptions. I know some people who think that after getting engaged an actress won't get a big role even if she's very young.” (Also Read: Saina Nehwal And Parupalli Kashyap's Wedding Invitation Card Is Very Unusual And Unique, Pic Inside)
She further went on to add, “I am sure if I will keep giving auditions and keep doing serials, people will get it that I am not quitting the industry. But yes people normally think this. I think that male actors don't leave then why should female actors quit the industry after getting married? Nowadays we talk about equality so in my relationship status we both follow this. We give importance to our careers equally."
Sharing her love story, Kajol had earlier revealed to the Times of India, “My sister had asked me to help my jiju (brother-in-law) with shopping. I, along with my family, went to Pune 20 days before the wedding and that’s when I first met Ankit. I hated him initially because he came across as arrogant. However, I soon realised that he was an introvert, who took his time to open up to people”.

She further added, “He is a genuine and loyal person. We kept in touch after the wedding and became friends by November. What helped us bond over was our love for travelling and the fact that both of us are family-oriented. Soon, we realised that what we shared was more than just friendship. In the meanwhile, their families also felt that they are a perfect pair. The rest, as they say, is history”.
Congratulations Kajol and Ankit on your engagement!
