There were times when their love story had hit rock-bottom, with minimalistic chances of them resurfacing, but when some things are meant to be, no hindrance can deter you from reaching your goal!

She looks amazing, isn’t it? They say, a woman’s look changes when she gets married and embraces her suhaag ki nishaani. We can’t agree more in the case of Sheena Bajaj! The newbie bride is making the most of her newly-wedded phase and was seen looking resplendent in a red sharara, chooda, sindoor, red bindi and her dapper sunglasses, with her hubby, Rohit Purohit by her side who too, has a touch of red in his outfit. She captioned the pictures as, “Tere hath me mera hath ho,sari jannnaten mere sath ho...@rohitpurohit08.” Before you checkout the pictures here, do take a single ‘Swag’ wala picture of Sheena where she beautifully merges traditional with contemporary! Here you go:
Earlier confirming the news of her wedding with Rohit Purohit and revealing their pre-wedding plans, Sheena Bajaj shared with The Times of India, "The Wedding is on the 22nd and the pre-wedding functions, including mehndi, haldi, sangeet and engagement, will be held on the previous day. All functions will be held in Jaipur.” Rohit had further added, “We plan to follow both the traditions- Marwari and Punjabi."

Sheena also shared that she has always been sure of Rohit, "I get really affected when Rohit and I fight, which results in unpleasant rumours. The only thing I have always been sure of is that I want to be with Rohit at any cost. He made the decision of getting married early and here we are.”
Sheena is 24, and Rohit is 29. Did their age-gap pose a hindrance for their wedding? Rohit had answered, “The age factor doesn’t really matter. In fact, in my case, my parents felt that I was ready for marriage when I turned 22. So, in that sense, I am already late (laughs!). Sheena and I have been together for five years and it felt right to take the plunge.” About their honeymoon plans, Rohit went on to reveal, “As a couple, we don’t plan anything. We will decide where to go on a honeymoon after the wedding."
Do you know, breaking all stereotypes, it was Sheena who had proposed to Rohit, and not the other way round? In the same interview, she shared, “We met on the set of Arjun and I developed a liking for him. We stayed in touch even after the show went off air and started dating six months later. I proposed to Rohit, as he is not the kind to confess his feelings. I went with flowers, chocolates and a cake and told him that I want to see him every day of my life. He simply replied ‘okay’, which I took as a yes."
On June 2018, rumours mills were rife that Sheena and Rohit have parted ways after they unfollowed each other from their respective Instagram profiles. The duo refused to comment on the same back then, only to announce the news of their wedding thereafter! About their alleged break-up, Sheena had replied, “It wasn’t a break-up. Like every normal couple, we too have our share of fights because we are poles apart. So, differences are bound to happen. We just took time off to give each other some space. I am fine with fights, but I won’t let that affect our relationship. I don’t want things to get escalated by a third party after our marriage.” Rohit intervened and added, “Rumours are hazards of this profession, but I have never responded to them. We have become so understanding as a couple that such rumours don’t affect us. Chhoti-moti ladaiyaan har relationship mein hoti hain.” (Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor Can't Take Eyes Off 'Muse' Alia Bhatt At Umang 2019, Lovebirds Happily Pose For Camera)
