These days, many handsome hunks of Bollywood are surprising us with the news of their arranged marriage. After Shahid tied the knot with Mira Rajput in an arranged marriage setup, another B-town hottie announced his wedding and that too an arranged one!
We are talking about the very handsome, Neil Nitin Mukesh. The actor announced the news of his marriage to a girl named Rukmini Sahay in October last year. The couple met through an arranged marriage setup by their parents. Neil thinks that there is nothing shocking about his arranged marriage. He shared:
“There’s nothing shocking about it. Sometimes we overlook things, which our parents don’t and it’s coming together of two families. And when you look into detailing, it makes more sense. It’s a strong foundation."
Neil and Rukmini are tying the knot in a big fat destination wedding in Udaipur in February. When he announced his wedding on social media, he got mixed reactions from fans. He said:
“People would often come up to me surprised, ‘Neil you are having an arranged marriage!’ Initially, I got defensive but now I just laugh it off.”
For the actor, choosing a life partner has got nothing to do with what his fans expect from him. He further added:
“I love the idea of fans thinking about their actors to have a fairytale life, which is beautiful. But somewhere for me, I have made sure that I draw a line between my personal and professional life.”
So, was Neil worried about his bride-to-be getting intimidated by his celeb status? He said:
“She was slightly concerned initially about the whole ‘actor thing’, but when she met me, she was very comfortable. Right now she is meeting my friends and family. It will take her time to get used to the industry we belong to. I am sure that they (industry people) will make her feel extremely welcomed and warm. Whoever has met her has loved her and she has liked them too. It’s like meeting new friends and bonding with them.”
We wish soon-to-get-married couple Neil and Rukmini a very happy married and blessed life. May they get an ocean full of happiness in life. All you guys, stay tuned for all the updates on their grand wedding in Udaipur!
