Wedding bells are ringing for TV actress Prachi Tehlan, seen in TV shows such as Diya Aur Baati Hum and Ekyawann. She is all set to tie the knot on August 7, 2020. The actress will be getting married to businessman and wildlife conservationist Rohit Saroha, and pre-wedding festivities are already in full swing, revealed the actress in her conversation with India Today Television. The wedding will be attended by 50 people due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The actress will exchange rings and take wedding vows on the same day; the festivities will be wrapped in a day’s time on August 7 in a farmhouse. Prachi said, "On August 2, we had Gauri Puja. On Raksha Bandhan, we did 'bhaat nyotna', which is a custom where we go to our maternal house with the invitation. Due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, we are not keeping a destination wedding. Around 50 people will attend the wedding. Engagement and wedding, both will happen on August 7. Engagement will happen in the morning and wedding at night."
Spilling the beans about their love story, she shared meeting Rohit eight years ago at her cousin’s wedding. "We met at my cousin's wedding. He was from the girl's side. My bhabhi is his childhood friend. He saw me at the wedding for the first time and liked me. We started talking in 2012 but at that time we both were ambitious. We spoke for about three to four months but it didn't work out. We started talking again during the lockdown and everything felt just right. The old spark reignited in this lockdown. While talking to each other, we realised that the feelings we had then are still there and things started to fall in place,” she added.
Her parents met his parents and their Roka ceremony took place on July 4, though the couple was set to tie the knot on November 24, however, due to the pandemic, the couple preponed the date, she said, "My parents went to his place to meet his parents. On July 4, the roka ceremony took place. Earlier we were thinking of getting married on November 24 but then we thought things are going to be the same so why not get married now and spend some time with each other."

Gushing over her Mr. Right, Prachi said, "We both are Jats, so our cultural background is the same. This is what connected us back then and now. I like his smile. He loves me more than I love him. He is taller than me, which is very very important. I am 5 feet 11 inches while he is 6 feet 1 inch. He is very adventurous and fun-loving. He likes to explore life and is multi-talented. He is a wildlife conservationist and has immense knowledge about animals and the jungle. Honestly, the list is quite long about the things I like about him. He makes me feel secured."
