We have all grown up watching Yash Raj love stories, and read those stories of 'hopelessly in love' couples in novels, but when a real life love story reels out before you (whether your own or someone else’s), then all you can do is smile and wipe a tear or two. Here is exactly what this couple’s story does to us.
Warning: The groom is fantastically filmy!
This cute love story is of actor Ruslaan Mumtaz who entered into Bollywood with Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar and his better-half, Nirali Mehta.
Here is their beautiful wedding video that will leave you mesmerized!
Ruslaan says that he never noticed Nirali despite being in the same dance class for about a month. But, till when could he possibly have escaped the vivacious Nirali’s charm? Nirali, on the other hand, gushes about her man, without containing her excitement, as someone who was a Bollywood actor, with an image of a ‘Casanova with an entourage of girls around him’.
He was certainly someone who did not seem to be like her type! So, how did things work out for these two? Well, it is an interesting tale!

Ruslaan recalls that he used to stand before a tree outside the dance class with his friends, which is when he saw his ladylove, Nirali. She turned her head, he saw her and voila, he instantly fell in love with her! As filmy as it may sound, this love-struck Romeo did not shy away from admitting how it was ‘love at first sight’ for him.
They both locked their gaze, did not look away and almost instantaneously, even before saying a ‘hi’ or a ‘hello’ or introducing himself, Ruslaan complimented Nirali saying:
“Hey you are looking nice today!”
Well, who could have thought that this would bloom into a love story!

They kept their relationship under wraps, but their dance guru, the legendary Shiamak Davar could sense love brewing between the two! He played the cupid and paired them together in the class. Even after Ruslaan discontinued with his classes; Shiamak would often invite him for dance shows, to keep the two of them close.
Every couple has that one special song that they relate to in their relationship and for this couple it was Shahrukh and Anushka’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi song!
This goes back to the day when while the two were watching the movie together. Nirali thought Ruslaan was being too filmi and sounded rather corny when he asked Nirali, “Doesn’t this song remind you of us?” But, he really meant it!
He said that of all the songs this one was their special song because she is somebody who is that pure for him. He would in fact play it out for Nirali, especially the chorus where the song goes like Tujhme Rab Dikkhta Hai, Yaaraa Main Kya Karu. Can you beat that!
Ruslaan and Nirali, the two dancing lovebirds finally got married in a grand style, in the presence of their close friends and family on March 2, 2014. It was a star-studded Gujarati wedding with many celebrities from the television industry and Bollywood attending the event. The couple and their close friends danced in full vigour. Nirali and Ruslaan's performance was enjoyed and loved by all.
It was a gala affair with mehendi, sangeet and wedding happening in a grand style. The couple had officially tied the knot on February 14, 2014 to make the day of love more special. They tied the knot again as per Hindu rituals on March 2. The couple's best friends, Rithvik Dhanjani and Nakuul Mehta started singing Ruslaan's debut movie's song, Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar Hai Ye, when the couple was exchanging the garlands.
The happy groom shared:
"So finally I'm a married man. N I must say if ur a rock star before marriage ull be one after it too."
His cupid, Shiamak Davar also shared his happiness, blessing the couple:
"Finally!!! congrats god bless my Nirali and Ruslaan."
We cannot stop smiling because the happy faces of this adorable couple are stuck in our heads. All we can do right away is, wish this cute couple a life full of happiness and more love! May they find every reason to leave no stone unturned in making their love story a happily ever after!
