In an interview with The Times of India, Monali dropped a bomb and revealed that she has been married to her boyfriend, Maik Richter since 2017 and nobody knows about it.

Monali admitted that she knows her friends and colleagues will be upset knowing the truth of her hiding the news of her marriage from them.

Monali also spills the beans about her romantic proposal and shared “I met Maik during my trip to Switzerland and we clicked instantly. Not just him, I made a connection with his family, too.

When Maik was asked about what made him fall for her, he had said, "I love the way she prepares dal. I can eat it anytime." Monali had then intruded, "He is more Indian than I am when it comes to food. Once, we went to eat pani puri in Juhu and the guy at the counter was dishing out really bland pani puris. Maik was like, ‘Give me more spice’, and the chaatwalla told me, ‘Madam, inka pet kharab ho jayega.’ I just burst out laughing!” (Don't Miss: Chiranjeevi Sarja's Cousin, Suraj Shared A 'Miss You' Note With His Brother's Last Post Before Death)
