Sameksha who has starred in many daily soap operas in the past was last seen in a larger-than-life character where she portrayed the role of a queen Olympias in Sony TV's historical drama Porus. However, much to everyone's surprise, the actress is now married. That's right. Amidst the lockdown, Sameksha tied the knot with Singapore-based industrialist and singer, Shael Oswal on July 3 in Singapore. The actress said that the wedding was done in a simple ceremony and it was virtually attended by their families, as reported by Times Of India.
Sameksha first met Shael in September 2019, during the shoot of their music single, Makhmalii Pyaar. She even spoke about the wedding to the portal where she was quoted saying, "That date is auspicious for us, as it marks the birth anniversary of Shael’s father, who passed away in 2016. We opted for a simple ceremony at a local gurudwara (in Singapore), which was attended virtually by our families.”
She also recalled the time how she fell in love with him who was already in love with her. “He had approached me for the song after seeing my photographs. While he says that he fell in love with me almost instantly, I had no feelings for him. During the course of the song, however, we got talking and grew closer. He is the biggest blessing in my life. I came to Singapore in February 2020 for the shoot of another song with him, titled 'Tere Naal', and bas uske naal hi reh gayi (laughs!)."
Sameksha also revealed that she has no plans in coming to Mumbai and has said goodbye to the industry. And now she will get into scriptwriting, direction and production, and want to revive the production house set up by my father-in-law.
It’s a second marriage for both Sameksha and Shael, talking about the same, she told that after their first marriages failed, they were certain they wouldn’t get married again. Nevertheless, Shael has two children — Sohanaa, 17, and Shivam, 16 — from his first marriage while Sameksha has a 10-year-old son from her first marriage when they parted ways in 2018.
