For some, it takes months or years to decide if they have chosen the right one or not as their life partner and for some, it takes just a few meetings or moments to know that he/she's the one. Known stars of the television world, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein fame, Karan Patel and Kasautii Zindagii Kay fame, Ankita Bhargava have never met each other before their 'awkward' meeting on Lohri or shared the screen space. Karan had worked with Ankita's father, Abhay Bhargava on YHM and when the cast of the show had visited the Bhargava house on Lohri, it was then when Ankita noticed Karan and his friends, Aly Goni and Sangram Singh checking her out. Though Ankita remembered the incident as an 'awkward' one, Karan had confessed his feelings for her to Aly, who played Cupid between the two.
While Ankita Bhargava had told her father that she didn't like Karan Patel at all, he, on the other hand, followed her on Twitter and often discussed her with Abhay Bhargava. It was Aly, Karan's 'brother, confidante, friend, and co-actor', who brought the two families together and arranged a formal meeting of the Patels and the Bhargavas. It was a 'chat mangni, pat byaah' for Karan and Ankita and finally, on May 3, 2015, the couple became husband and wife. Stepping onto the next phase of their lives, Karan and Ankita embraced parenthood in 2019.
This day, six years ago, Ankita Bhargava and Karan Patel's sangeet ceremony was held and on the special occasion, the couple shared a video, created by a fan page comprising of their beautiful moments from the function. For the sangeet ceremony, Ankita had opted for an orange and turquoise-coloured lehenga with minimal jewellery and makeup. Karan had picked a blue-coloured Jodhpuri-western suit. Sharing the video on his IG story, Karan wrote, "And she made his life beautiful… @ankzbhargava love you baby… forever!" Ankita reposted it on her IG story and added, "Our anniv is not today haan BTW! FYI @karan9198."
It was on May 03, 2015, when Karan Patel and Ankita Bhargava had entered the bond of holy matrimony in a big fat Gujarati wedding with days of celebrations including their roka, bachelorette, sangeet, cocktail and finally, marriage. It was on May 01, 2015, when Ankita and Karan had their sangeet as well as the ring ceremony at Novotel Hotel, Mumbai. Prior to which, was their cocktail. While most of their pictures are there on the internet, Ankita had taken to her Instagram handle in 2019 to give us a flashback of one of the most memorable days of her and Karan's life.
Ankita Bhargava had posted two sets of pictures from her different pre-wedding festivities. The picture from her sangeet night had Ankita and Karan dance crazily with each other and had a blurred black-and-white background. She had captioned the picture as "This Day That Year! When we burnt the dance floor with our 'Govinda' Moves! #cocktailnight #fouryearstrong #2015." The next set of pictures were from her sangeet-cum-engagement ceremony, wherein the couple had looked very much in love with each other as they danced with their parents. Sharing the pictures, Ankita had written, "This Day That Year!! #sangeetnight." On March 14, 2019, Ankita had posted a picture of her mehendi-adorned hands (probably from her roka ceremony), with her hubby, Karan Patel’s initials inscribed with henna.
Four years into marriage, Karan Patel and Ankita Bhargava welcomed a little angel in their lives, Mehr Patel. It was a few days after Mehr's first birthday when Karan had given a partial glimpse of his daughter's face and it had melted our hearts in split seconds. In the picture, Mehr had excitedly and admiringly looked at Karan's face as it was covered with his hoodie. Karan had captioned the picture as "Even with my eyes closed, all I see is only you my love .... #DaddyDaughterThing #RabDiMehr #MehrKaranPatel." A day after this post, Ankita had finally introduced Mehr to the world with a family picture and it was adorable beyond words. She had written, "THIS IS US I just recovered from the Mini Heart Attack I got yesterday when @karan9198 took me by a 'Shocking Surprise' and posted Mehr's picture! However, I think I needed that one jolt to gain some mental strength to start over coming my inhibitions! Starting slowly yet steadily now! I Thank you all for your Blessings, Patience and Kindness all throughout this year! Here She Is.... Rabb Di Mehr" in the caption.
We wish Karan and Ankita many more years of togetherness and love!
