Currently, popular television actress, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia is seen in the show, Bigg Boss 16, this weekend, she once again became the show's captain. The gorgeousness rose to fame with her stint in the popular television serial, Choti Sarrdaarni. Afterwards, she was also seen in many other TV shows, including Naati Pinky Ki Lambi Love Story, Shakti - Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki, Ishq Mein Marjawan 2, Udaariyaan, etc. However, she has always kept her rumoured relationship with her boyfriend, Mahir Pandhi, under wraps until in Bigg Boss 16 house when she confessed to dating someone. Now, the actor opened up about the same.
For the unversed, Nimrit is head over heels for her Choti Sarrdaarni co-star Mahir Pandhi. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, he was asked why the couple preferred to keep their relationship private. To this, Mahir threw light on all the drama that gossipmongers used to spread after knowing about someone's relationship status and said:
“I’m the one who keeps my private life private. I’ll still keep it private. But for the one who raised the topic it would be better if you clear it with that person about who it is. That’s a little better if it comes out from the source you will get accurate information. It’s her life her decisions you know once you’re you’re on a public platform uh you have to do certain things in a way that you wouldn’t do in reality. That’s what I would you know say, because I know people tend to get into your private life too much.”
Further, he mentioned that since the media constantly scrutinise celebrities for each of their actions, Mahir and Nimrit wanted to skip all such drama. However, adding that now Bollywood actor and host of Bigg Boss 16, Salman Khan has also acknowledged Mahir and Nimrit's relationship on national television, they can no longer keep it private. He added:
“Sometimes when you are an actor, since everything is on display there are certain things that we prefer to keep private. But we actors do not have that liberty. It happens with many actors as they step out for dinner or lunch, and their dating rumours hit headlines. In fact, their marriage date is also set when they are quite unaware of all the drama. So you don’t want that drama happening. I believe that’s her priority, if she wants to keep her private life private that’s her decision. But now everything is okay she has a boyfriend that was you know the nation knows it even Salman Khan said it, so it’s out there.”
At the end of the conversation, Mahir also revealed that their first interaction outside their work was when Nimrit was having an issue with eye lenses. And as Mahir is already skilled in wearing contact lenses, he helped Nimrit and this way, the duo formed a bonding. He was also asked about their marriage. To which he said that marriage card is nowhere in their near future. He concluded:
“The first time I met Nimrit was on a mock shoot and we soon became good pals and were chilling around. The first interaction with her was because her lens got stuck in her eye. She was supposed to wear coloured lenses and I guess it was the first time she wore them and couldn’t take them out. I wore specs from my childhood but had gotten operated on so was wearing lenses. I helped take them out and also taught her how to wear lenses that’s how the friendly zone started otherwise it was just professional and then we ended up working together on her show.”
Earlier, the actress was also seen facing mental health issues in the controversial reality show, Bigg Boss 16. In one of the episodes of Bigg Boss 16, Nimrit was also seen baring her heart out in a conversation with Bigg Boss in the confession room. When Bigg Boss asked the actress about her health and well-being, she got emotional and talked about the health issues she has been facing inside the Bigg Boss house.
