It seems that wedding bells is not going to stop ringing in telly town soon this year. Recently, we got the news that Kritika Kamra got engaged with Uday Singh Gauri in a hush-hush ceremony and now we here that Karmaphal Daata Shani actress Kajol Srivastava is also set to tie the knot next year with Ankit Khare. But before that, they will be having an engagement ceremony on November 24. He is an IT engineer and the ceremony will take place in Kajol's hometown Banda, Uttar Pradesh. Basically, Kajol's marriage has a 'didi-tera-deewana' twist as Ankit is Kajol's sister's brother-in-law. The duo met during her sister's wedding last year in April.
Sharing about their love story, Kajol told Bombay Times, "My sister had asked me to help my jiju (brother-in-law) with shopping. I, along with my family, went to Pune 20 days before the wedding and that’s when I first met Ankit. I hated him initially, because he came across as arrogant. However, I soon realised that he was an introvert, who took his time to open up to people. He is a genuine and loyal person. We kept in touch after the wedding and became friends by November. What helped us bond over was our love for travelling and the fact that both of us are family-oriented. Soon, we realised that what we shared was more than just friendship. In the meanwhile, their families also felt that they are a perfect pair. The rest, as they say, is history."
The lovebirds have been dating each other since four years but have been in a long-distance relationship. However, this has strengthened their relationship. “The challenges are trust issues and time difference. However, he made sure to keep in touch with me through phone and video calls. We trust each other blindly, and would constantly update each other about whatever we were doing. Ankit has put in a lot of effort to make it work,” revealed the actress.
Kajol and Ankit plan to take marriage vows early next year but Kajol won't be shifting to Denver after marriage. She told the same, “That is impossible, I can’t quit the industry. I love acting and Ankit knows how passionate I am about my profession. I feel lucky to have him in my life, as he has told me that he would relocate to Mumbai if I take up a show, or I could travel to the US if I want to take a short break.”
We can't wait to see pictures from their engagement.
