TV actress Tina Philip who was last seen in Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna has decided to take the plunge. The actress is all set to exchange the rings with Nikhil Sharma. Interestingly, Nikhil played Tina's on-screen brother in her debut TV show 'Ek Aastha Aisi Bhee' ('EAAB'). Although the two played siblings on the screens, their bond off-screen remained quite different. According to a report in Bombay Times, the two will get engaged on August 4, in Nikhil's hometown Delhi. "My parents, who are based in the UK, will reach on August 1. We plan to get married early next year, and it will mostly be a destination wedding."
Tina was also asked on how she fell in love with her on-screen brother to which she replied, "In my defence, we barely had scenes together because he shot on another set. During the only scene that we shot together, he had to lift me after I fainted. Though it wasn’t mentioned in the script, he kissed me on my forehead. I was in utter shock (laughs!). Having said that, I, too played a prank on him on the first day of his shoot; he had joined the show midway. However, he took it really well. I fell for his simplicity and sense of humour."
On his part, Nikhil said, "Tina is a pure soul and has a beautiful heart. Mujhe logo ki pehchaan ho jaati hai and I realised that she is the one for me."
Tina also revealed how Nikhil tried wooing for four months and the two only started dating post their show EAAB ended. "I was quite upset when 'EAAB' ended, as it was my first show. Nikhil ne mujhe sahaara diya aur maine phir usko pakad liya hamesha ke liye. Jokes aside, we weren’t dating during the course of the show. Love blossomed months after the it ended. We stayed in touch and one day, he asked me out for a film. I had already watched it, but decided to accompany him. Later, I learnt that he, too, had already watched it. He just wanted us to spend some time together. Tired of chasing and wooing me for four months, he directly proposed marriage to me. I refused, as I wanted to go for an arranged match. But as they say, best things are unplanned. I met his family last year on Diwali, and fell in love with them. What I like about him and his family is that all 33 members stay together in one house, which is rare in today’s day and age. They are so loving and despite coming from two different cultures, religions and even countries, our families have supported us from day one," Tina revealed.
