Manish has gained immense popularity with his acting stint in Sasural Simar Ka. His jodi with his co-star, Avika Gor was loved by many and people were sure that something was brewing between the two. But Manish's heart was already taken by actress, Sangieta Chauhaan. Yes, that's true and now, the couple is all set to make their relationship official by tying the knot on June 30, 2020, at a Gurudwara in Andheri, Mumbai.
Recently, in an interview with SpotboyE, Manish revealed the decision of tying the knot and said, "It may surprise you but the decision of getting married to each other was taken in a day's time. During this whole lockdown, I was extremely busy with my song and one day at the breakfast table, I told my father I am planning to take a day off today and in a quirky way he said, 'off le raha hai to shaadi bhi karle.' It was a joke but it hit my mind. I instantly called Sangieta and said let's get married, tell your parents to speak to my parents and she was shocked and said, 'Achanak se kaise baat karu?' Things don't happen like this' but I convinced her and said let's make them meet on Zoom call today at 4 and she somehow agreed. They met via the video call and discussed things and by evening the wedding date was also zeroed down."

Manish further revealed how the wedding will pan out without the presence of their parents. He said, "My mom doesn't keep well and I don't want to risk her health by taking her out in this pandemic. Similarly, Sangieta's parents are also old and hence we decided that we will go ahead without their presence. Will get married, come home and take their blessings. They also agreed to the decision."
Talking about their love story, Manish spilled the beans on how he fell in love with Sangeita. He shared, "We had done a show together called Swabhiman Ek Shingaar but never interacted much. Later there was a party at Suchitra Pillai ma'am's house, where we met again and started talking to each other. Then we become good friends, best friends and then a couple. It's been a year and half that we are dating but before that it was just friendship which gradually got converted into love."
For those who don't know, Manish's wedding date also has a connection with his best friend, Avika Gor. In the same interview, the actor stated, "Coincidentally, on both these days it's my best friends' birthdays. On June 15 it's Jassi's birthday whereas Avika's is on 30. Both told me to get married on their respective birthdays. Obviously, June 15 was way too close, so we couldn't, which left us with June 30, Avika's birthday. Now, she has promised whenever she gets married she will marry on my birthday." Aww, Manish and Avika are friendship goals!
