On February 10, 2019, real-life princess, Mohena Kumari Singh exchanged rings with the love of her life, Suyesh Rawat amidst family and friends in Goa. While Mohena looked the prettiest on her engagement in a beige-coloured lehenga with floral embroidery, her fiancé Suyesh colour-coordinated with his bride-to-be in a beige-coloured sherwani.
Ever since the reports of Mohena Kumari Singh’s engagement emerged in media, there have been rumours about her bidding adieu to her show, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Mohena had finally revealed the same in an interview with the Times of India and also talked about her October wedding with fiancé, Suyesh Rawat. Speaking about quitting the show and leaving Mumbai post-wedding, Mohena said, “Post marriage, I will say goodbye to acting and Mumbai. My life is all set to take a 180 degree turn. I am excited and nervous at the same time. Even my industry friends were taken aback with my decision, but that’s the kind of person I am. I follow my heart. I have taken several leaps of faith in my life and this is the biggest so far.”
When asked her if the decision is also because she doesn’t want to play an older mother on the show, Mohena Kumari Singh replied, “As an actor, I don’t worry about the age of my character. Keerti (her character) is an integral part of 'YRKKH' and she is already a mother. Though the show is set to go in for a leap and my child will grow up, there is scope for me to perform. I am hungry to act and as long as the graph of my character is good, I wouldn’t mind working. However, I had to take this decision because I am getting married. I have to start shopping for my wedding and will be travelling to various countries for it.” (Also Read: Disha Patani Can't Take Her Eyes Off Tiger Shroff As He Happily Poses For Media At 'Bharat' Premiere)
Mohena Kumari Singh shared that she came to Mumbai to participate in a dance reality show, become a choreographer and then an actor. And after ticking all the boxes on her wishlist, the last one remains is to live on a mountain. Elaborating on the same, Mohena said, “Since childhood, I have wanted to live on a mountain. I didn’t come to Mumbai to become a superstar; I wanted to dance, choreograph and act. I have fulfilled those dreams, and I am leaving the city fully satisfied. Having said that, I won’t stop working after marriage and will keep my hustle on.”
Do you know that Mohena Kumari Singh’s marriage will be even more special as it is after 100 years that a princess is getting married in the royal family of Rewa? Revealing details about her wedding, Mohena stated, “The sangeet is on October 13 and the wedding will take place on October 14 in Haridwar. A reception and my bidaai will take place on November 9 and 10 in Rewa.”
Revealing that her marriage with Suyesh Rawat is an arranged one and his family, who has several ashrams across the globe, met Mohena’s ménage on a trip to Rewa, Mohena Kumari Singh said, “My brother told his brother about me. The families liked each other and here we are. I have always wanted an arranged marriage. I would have never got married to someone in the industry, as I don’t think that I would have found a like-minded person.”
Mohena Kumari Singh was all praises for her hubby-to-be, Suyesh Rawat and revealed what has strengthened their bond. She shared, “He is very honest and never puts up an act. We always have deep and meaningful conversations. What strengthens our bond is our love for mountains, animals and the fact that we are both vegetarian.” Speaking about enjoying the best of both worlds, Mohena continued, “I have always lived a dual life — one in Mumbai and the other in Rewa, but I enjoyed both worlds. I have got immense support from the Rewa royal family, as everyone is artistically inclined. However, it was only me who pursued it professionally and since I have broken some rules, I call myself the rogue princess (laughs!). During my time in Mumbai, I have had maharanis texting me, saying that they are proud of me. I have always been a family person and I had to come back home, as I had started feeling that I was moving away from my loved ones in Mumbai.” (Also Read: Sara Ali Khan Posts A Heart-Melting 'Eid Mubarak' Wish With Mommy, Amrita Singh, Look Mesmerising)
