Television diva, Sreejita De has proved her acting prowess in many television serials, over the years. Now, she is leading the headlines for her engagement news. Sreejita officially announced her relationship with Michael Blohm-Pape through an IG post on Holi, 2021.
Prior to this relationship, Sreejita had a past relationship with an IT engineer with whom she had broken up in 2017. In an interview with The Times of India, the actress had talked about the bitter breakup she had. She had said:
"When I started dating him, I didn't know that I'll have to change myself completely to win his love. He too, felt that once I fall in love with him, I will be exactly the way he wants me to be. He had issues with my profession and even changed the way I dressed."
Sreejita De and Michael were holidaying in Paris when he had proposed to her. What can be more romantic than having a proposal in front of the Eiffel Tower? The actress was taken aback when Michael went down on one knee to propose her. Sharing it, the actress exclaimed in an interview with Hindustan Times, "It was like a dream." Sreejita revealed:
"I've only seen this in films. I never expected it to happen to me. I don't think anything can describe that beautiful moment."
Further explaining how it happened, the actress described the most romantic evening of her life. She said:
"It was in the evening, at around 7.30 pm. We were walking, and it was cold. He suddenly stopped and started telling me how much he loved me. The next moment, I realised he was on his knees. I was so shocked that I started crying. I couldn't stop my tears."
The actress felt so overwhelmed that she had asked him to repeat the whole proposal scenario once again. And, thus on December 21, 2021, they had finally got engaged officially! The pictures from the same speak broadly about how madly-in-love they are. Sreejita and Michael have even planned to stay in Mumbai for the next 5 years.
While sharing their wedding plans, Sreejita mentioned that they were talking about tying the knot in 2021 but couldn't go forward because of COVID-19. Now they are planning to tie the knot this year. The actress said:
"By the end of this year, we'll definitely tie the knot. We will have a traditional German white wedding. It will be followed by a traditional Bengali wedding."
In a throwback interview IWMBuzz, a close source to Sreejita had revealed about Michael. The source had mentioned:
"Sreejita met her man Michael at a cafe and that is where they got to know each other. The two of them are seeing each other and are certainly serious about taking this relationship further."
Later, the portal had contacted Sreejita to confirm the news. The actress had given her consent but didn't disclose anything about marriage at that time. She had said:
"Yes, I am seeing someone. He is a non-Indian and not an actor. Frankly we have not thought about marriage yet. It is true that we like each other. However, the feeling of taking our relationship to the next level has not hit our minds yet."
We wish Sreejita De and Michael BP our heartiest congratulations on their engagement!
