Comedian-actor Balraj Syal has bid good bye to his bachelorhood, he tied the knot to singer Deepti Tuli in a hush hush wedding. The actor nuptial took place on August 7, 2020 in Jalandhar. In conversation with Times Of India he shared of his Mrs. Right was just 15 minutes from his home, but took almost a year to find her and go down on his knee, when she gave a nod to his big question. It was somewhat like love at first sight for Balraj.
Balraj recalling his first meeting shared of meeting her for the first ever time in July 2019 in Chandigarh, later he kept on contacting but no response. He said, “We met in July last year, during a shoot in Chandigarh. I was hosting a show, while she was performing in it with her band. I developed an instant liking for her, but I guess, she didn’t like me much or else she would have responded to my text messages (laughs!). Later, I went to shoot for Fear Factor: 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' and kept texting her, but didn’t get a desired response.”
But during one of his international trips, the conversation finally began and then he popped the question. “It was during my trip to Turkey and Greece that we started having long conversations. I met her a couple of times after I returned, and proposed marriage to her on my birthday (January 26), during a getaway in Goa. She was taken by surprise and didn’t respond immediately. Then, 'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge' came my way. After coming out, I spoke to her again about marriage and she agreed.”
Adding further he mentioned that their families met and took it ahead, “The families met just a few days before the lockdown in March and our horoscopes, too, matched. The interesting part is, she lives 15 minutes away from my home in Jalandhar. Woh faasla cover karne mein itna time lag gaya,” he added further.

When asked what he likes in his Mrs. Right, he said, “It was an easy decision for me. She understands my silence, and the way she took care of me when I fell ill on my birthday sealed the deal for me.”
Speaking about this lockdown wedding ceremony, he shared, “During the initial months of lockdown, I didn’t want to have a social wedding owing to safety concerns. Then I considered a registered marriage, but agni ke saamne phere lena zaroori tha. Finally, our parents asked us to come home once the flights resumed and our wedding date was fixed. The shaadi happened with all the rituals.” ALSO READ: Balraj Syal Who Participated In Shehnaz Gill's Swayamavar Finally Finds True Love - PIC Inside
