The wedding season is far from over. This morning, pictures of Mariam Khan – Reporting Live actress Sheena Bajaj and Porus actor Rohit Purohit’s Haldi ceremony did the rounds of social media. And now, here’s another TV actress who is all set to tie the knot. Laado 2 actress, Palak Jain, who played Avika Gor’s sister on the show, will wed longtime boyfriend Tapasvi Mehta next month.
Sharing her excitement Palak told Bombay Times, “I have always dreamt of a fairytale and elaborate wedding. So, I will have every possible function leading up to the D-day. There will be a pre-wedding celebration on January 28 in Mumbai for my industry friends and family. The haldi, mehendi and sangeet will be held in Indore on February 7, 8 and 9, respectively. I am excited about getting married in the month of love, and we will take off to New Zealand for our honeymoon.”
She adds, “I could have got married in Mumbai, but I have my own reasons for choosing Indore. Firstly, it’s my hometown and secondly, I want people to take two days off and consider it as a short holiday. I don’t want them to stress about work. My father jokes that he shouldn’t have a seating arrangement for the bride, as she won’t be sitting at all. I am part of almost every dance performance at my functions.”
Interestingly, both Palak and Tapasvi have been child artistes and the actress claims she was the latter’s biggest fan ever since she saw him on his show Ishaan eight years ago. She spilled the beans on their love story and said that Tapasvi left for Australia to learn filmmaking after his show Parvarrish (2011), in which he played Shweta Tiwari's son, wrapped up. The two didn’t meet for five years. Palak told the leading daily, “There was no connection with him, but he returned to Mumbai for 10 days in February 2016 for the casting of his film, and that’s when a common friend suggested that I join Tapasvi in the production. I don’t know whether it was my love for production or him, but I immediately agreed. We grew fond of each other, but didn’t get enough time to bond over. A year later, I left for Australia for three months to work on the film’s production and that’s when things started rolling. One day, I proposed to him, going down on my knees, holding the ‘Will you marry me?’ card. I waited for him at his home and cooked his favourite dish, paav bhaji, and decorated the home with candles and flowers. I popped the question when he was least expecting it. I never thought that he could decline the proposal. I had given him no option (laughs!). He came to India in December 2017 and we told our respective families about our relationship a month later. I never believed that my first crush would be my husband, eventually.” Congratulations for the new beginnings, Palak and Tapasvi!
