The lockdown has been full of depressing news like the demise of Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor and of late, Chiranjeevi Sarja. There have been some surprise announcements as well. Singer Monali Thakur in a recent interview to The Times Of India revealed that she has been married since 2017. She tied the knot with Switzerland-based restaurateur Maik Richte. She told The Times Of India, "I haven't made it official anywhere on social media yet, but people had already guessed it. A couple of times when my ring was mistakenly visible in my Instagram photos, a lot of people commented, asking if it was my wedding ring. That said, Maik and I have successfully been able to hide our marriage for three years."
The singer said her disclosure will come as a shock to friends from the industry. It seems no one was invited or even aware of the wedding. She told the publication, "The news of my marriage will come as a shock to many as none of my industry friends were aware or invited. We kept delaying the ceremony and announcement and three years just passed by. The award-winning singer says she is aware of the backlash that she will get from her friends. She said, "Mujhe pata hai bahot gali padne wali hai logon se, but I think when we have our wedding ceremony and invite people for the celebrations, they won't be upset anymore."
The singer met, Maik Richte in Switzerland and they clicked instantly. It seems he proposed to her on Christmas Eve 2016. It was the exact spot where they had met for the first time. She has sung hit numbers like Zara Zara Touch Me from Race, Sawaar Loon from Lootera, Badri Ki Dulhania from Badrinath Ki Dulhania to name a few.
