Nainowale ne chheda mann ka pyaala… Chhalkai madhushala… Mera chain rain nain apne saath le gaya- ‘firsts’ are always memorable in everyone’s life. Especially when you get married, you and your partner enjoy the sweet little bliss of married life and to give it a further impetus, they observe Karwa Chauth every year. Little did we know last year that we will be writing a Karwa Chauth story for this reigning singer of Bollywood. Hence, here’s sharing the first Karwa Chauth of Neeti Mohan and her hubby, Nihaar Pandya. (Do Read: Mahhi Vij Celebrates First Karwa Chauth Post Motherhood, Hubby Jay Bhanushali Shares Pictures)
Neeti Mohan added ‘Pandya’ to her surname on February 15, 2019, when she got married to Manikarnika actor, Nihaar Pandya. The duo has been happily enjoying their married phase and celebrated their first Karwa Chauth post-wedding. Neeti took to Instagram and posted pictures of herself wearing a pink and golden saree for the puja, with traditional jewellery and a bun. Sharing the pictures, she wrote, “Waiting for my moon. Ahemmmm I mean @nihaarpandya #FirstKarwachauth #karwachauth #Blessed.”
While we at once wanted to share with you all how amazing Neeti Mohan looked at her puja right away, we wanted to wait until the duo posted dreamy pictures in the evening. And so they did! Neeti took to Instagram and sharing an array of pictures on Instagram, wrote, “Only cuz you like it cheesy here it is... “Tum aaye to aaya mujhe yaad ,Gali main aaj CHAND nikla.” The moon, sky and the city never made a better canvas for a picture. Breaking our first #karwachauth fast together was Sacred. Thank you being my fasting and feasting partner for life @nihaarpandya.”
Nihaar Pandya , who also fasted for his wife, shared pictures from their do and wrote, “@neetimohan18 Raymond's has contacted me. With you, it seems like now I'm "The complete man". The joy of fasting together #Karvachauth #cheesycaptions only coz you love them. #myfirstlovemygrandmother.” To this, his wife, Neeti Mohan posted an adorable reply, “BTW Mr Raymonds, Seasons has contacted me. I am going to be in Love with you in all SEASONS.” Also checkout some Instagram stories of both Nihaar and Neeti:
But did you notice something? Neeti Mohan, for her first Karwa Chauth, wore a replica of the Sabyasachi Mukherjee red Benarasi saree that Anushka Sharma had worn for her Delhi reception post her wedding with Virat Kohli. Also, what looks like it, Anushka too loved the way Neeti carried the same saree for she posted a 'love' emoji as one of the comments in the picture. Here's a look:
This is not the first time when Neeti Mohan has taken a cue from Anushka Sharma for traditional apparels. Her wedding lehenga too was almost similar to that of Anushka Sharma's trendsetting pink wedding lehenga. In case you missed the same, here's a juxtaposing of both of their attires and you can decide accordingly!
In an interview with SpotboyE, Neeti Mohan had revealed how love happened between her and Nihaar Pandya, “We both have strong values and quite similar ones. I think Jimmy knew that, and trust me, he was very sure that we would click. He introduced us at a wedding, where Nihaar was accompanied by his parents. They met me very warmly and there was an instant connect with not just Nihaar but also his family members.” She had also added, “After that, Nihaar met my parents. My Dad loved him almost instantly. He used to keep saying, "I have four daughters. Why is none of them getting married?” She also told the quality that attracted her towards Nihaar, and said, “Well, I am beyond gauging a person based on his looks. I try to gauge the inner core of the person, which I think is so prevalent in Nihaar.” (Must Read: Vivek Dahiya's Unique Karwa Chauth Gift To Wife, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya Will Make You All Jealous)
Neeti Mohan and Nihaar Pandya’s dating and wedding rumours came in at the same time earlier this year. A source had shared with a portal, “Neeti and Nihaar have been dating each other for the past four years now. They recently decided to take their relationship one step ahead. They would be tying the knot on February 2019 in Mumbai. Their family and friends from the industry will be a part of the celebration. While the sangeet, mehndi and the wedding is a close-knit affair, the reception invites will go to their friends from the industry." While another source had added, "Nihaar is currently busy with the prep for the wedding and is also gearing up for the release of his debut film Manikarnika. The movie hits the screens on January 25, 2019. Post that, he will dive deep into the last minute wedding prep."
It was only later when Neeti Mohan had finally confirmed that she is indeed getting married to Nihaar Pandya and shared her post-wedding plans. Speaking about her wedding functions back then, the Fakira star had shared, “All functions on February 14 and 15. Engagement nahin hui hai, but doni ki families have given a word to each other and blessed us.” Neeti also revealed how she will be moving in with Nihaar and his parents post their wedding, “I am moving into his house and will stay with his family. And trust me again, I am really looking forward to that.” Well, the couple isn't planning an immediate honeymoon after the wedding. Talking about the same, Neeti had said, “Not decided (about the honeymoon), but it will have to wait. I have a couple of assignments going on.” (Also Read: Nusrat Jahan Celebrates Her First Karwa Chauth with husband, Nikhil Jain And Looks Deeply In Love)
