There’s never going to be a perfect age to get married. It totally depends on our will and when we want to do it. One of the finest actresses of the telly world, Surbhi Tiwari decided to do the same and broke all age stereotypes about a ‘perfect age’ to get married. Surbhi entered the bond of holy matrimony on February 10, 2019, at the age of 38, with her pilot hubby, Praveen Kumar Sinha.

Theirs was a fun-filled wedding affair with very few close friends from the industry and family members by her side. For the uninitiated, Surbhi Tiwari is a dilli wali bahu, for the actress’s sasural is in Delhi. The actress’s mother-in-law had hosted a wedding reception for the couple in Delhi sometime back and as per a SpotboyE report, she had gifted her bahu a silver crown, which she wore amidst the guests that evening. She had also sported a red lehenga with traditional jewellery for her reception and looked amazing!
While you are still gushing over the pictures, let us tell you that it was Surbhi Tiwari’s husband, Praveen Kumar Sinha, who had put together his wife's stunning reception ensemble. To top it all, the beautiful Konark’s Sun temple printed red-lehenga took the doting hubby over 8 months to complete! In a recent interaction with Bombay Times, Surbhi shared, “All I did was pick the colour, Praveen took care of the rest. He designed the lehenga and was working on it for the past eight months. The chakras in the lehenga are inspired from Konark’s Sun Temple.”
Proudly calling herself a ‘dilli ki bahu’, Surbhi Tiwari stated, “I used to come to Delhi three-four times every year, ab main Dilli ki bahu bann gayi hu now I will be coming here often. I am really happy that my sasuraal is here, Dilli ka charm hi alag hai.” (Must Read: Gul Panag Shares Unseen Pictures From Her Unique 'Bike Doli' On Her 8th Wedding Anniversary)
While marriage and belongingness has its own set of charm, but there’s something post marriage which Surbhi Tiwari is finding difficult to get accustomed to. Want to know what it is? The Shagun actress revealed, “To be married to someone you love is the most beautiful feeling. Now I have someone who waits for me at home. It’s wonderful. The only thing that I am still not used to is sharing the bed. All my life, I used to sleep alone and now suddenly after all these years, considering I am getting married late, sharing the room with someone is a little awkward. I have to remind myself ki beta Surbhi shaadi ho gayi hai ab teri.”
The couple had their mini-honeymoon in Goa right after their wedding and is looking forward to a dreamy Switzerland-moon in May. Speaking about the same, Surbhi Tiwari stated, “My mother-in-law wanted us to go for a mini honeymoon before we got back to work. Humari sab rasmein baad mein hui, we went to Goa immediately after the wedding. Now for our second honeymoon, we will go to Switzerland for 14 days in May. I am a big Yash Chopra and Sridevi fan, I will definitely wear chiffon saris and pose for pictures there.”
Almost a month after her wedding, Surbhi Tiwari, in an interview with SpotboyE revealed the reason as to why she opted for a late marriage, “I didn’t want to marry anyone from the industry. It gets very monotonous when you belong to the same professional field. You come back home and end up discussing work. I did have many proposals from channel heads, actors and producers but turned them down. Waited for the right man in my life and here I am, married to Praveen.”
In yet another interview, Surbhi Tiwari shared about how she met the love of her life, Praveen, “Our common friends arranged our meeting in October, 2018. Praveen is from Patna, but he has been working in Delhi for the past 18 years. He will shift base to Mumbai after marriage. Despite belonging to an affluent family, he is simple like me. Another thing we have in common is, we both don’t like partying. However, unlike me, he is calm like still water, and he has brought calmness to my life.”
Surbhi further went on to add, “He is the anchor I was looking for so long. He has been extremely supportive of my career and loves me the way I am. At a time when most people expect their suitors to be in shape, he didn’t mind me being overweight. I have had health issues because of which I put on weight, but he doesn't mind it.”
Do you know, Surbhi Tiwari had rejected her now hubby, Praveen after a few meets? Revealing the details about the same, the Ek Rishta Saajhedari Ka star shared, “He is too shy. In fact, I had to make that first call and he immediately decided to marry me. However, I insisted on meeting him. When we met, I found him too simple and lied to him that our horoscopes don’t match. However, he outsmarted me by matching them before our meeting and told me that there had to be another reason for me to reject the proposal (laughs!). After a few more meetings, I realised that he is a thorough gentleman with a pure heart.” (Also Read: Brahmastra Director, Ayan Mukerji Teases Alia Bhatt And Ranbir Kapoor, Says There's Been Lot Of Love)
