TV actress Parul Chauhan started her career when producer Rajan Shahi introduced her as Ragini in his cult series Bidaai. The show gave Chauhan instant popularity and success. Years, later Shahi and Chauhan reunited for the former’s superhit daily Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, which has been going on for years now. The two share a bond, which is more than of a mentor-protegee. Possibly, that is the reason when Parul was taking a big step in her personal life, one of the first person to know about it was her family equivalent producer Shahi. Chauhan is soon going to tie the knot with TV actor Chirag Thakkar who is also a good friend of her. In an exclusive conversation with BollywoodLife, Rajan Shahi, the head honcho of Directors’ Kut, shared his feeling for the upcoming wedding and revealed how his show Yeh Rishta, played a major role in it.
Shahi, says, “I’m extremely happy for her, we’ve had a long association since Bidaai. I have seen her work, her progress and the way she has lived her life. She has worked hard to reach where she is today. Most importantly, she has humility, despite all of this. The TV world is taxing! There are high times and not so good times as well. So, to find stability in a partner who is more of a friend and a companion, the entire journey becomes blissful.” The producer reveals that he didn’t really have much idea about the relationship. Reminiscing the time when Chauhan informed him, he says, “One day I got a call from her when she was in London. She said she wanted to meet me and tell me something urgent. There I had a feeling, that something major is happening in her personal life for sure. Then when she returned, she told me that she wants to get married. She further added that she won’t disclose this to anyone before I meet him (Chirag).”

Talking about the to-be groom Chirag, Shahi says, “I met him for the first time in Ganesh Chaturthi. It was an auspicious day. He came on the sets (of Yeh Rishta) and we had a brief chat. I found Chirag very sensible and honesty in him. Most importantly he really loves Parul.”
Parul is currently playing Suwarna in the Star Plus’ popular daily. The producer reveals that Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has played a major role in her upcoming wedding. “I remember, when she entered the show, some actor told her that ‘now even you’ll get married soon’. As a lot of people have got married while working on the show; be it Lata or be it Pooja Joshi. So, it feels good to hear this!”
Shahi, reveals that he hasn't planned anything special for the wedding yet since it has some time. Parul will get hitched to Chirag in December, in her homet0wn in Uttar Pradesh.
“My only advice to them is that in this industry there would always be tough times. There would be times when there will be work, no work and pressure. The first few years, people tend to overlook a lot. But the main test starts after those initial years. So, I have told them to be always there for each other and understand each other,” he concludes
