The cat is out of the bag! Shakti Arora and Neha Saxena have made it official that they are married! Although while spilling the beans, the couple said that they got married on April 6, 2018, yet for those who have been following SpotboyE.com, would know that we brought the news of their wedding back in June 2017.
Well yes, Shakti and Neha actually got married in 2014 in a private ceremony at Goregaon Sports Complex, Mumbai. The wedding happened a week or two before Ekta Kapoor's Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi launched on Star Plus in June 2014.
The reason why the duo maintained that they are just engaged (in spite of being married that time) was that Shakti did not want his real life equation to affect the couple's on-screen chemistry in the show.
In fact, during his wedding in 2014, Shakti spotted a few media persons trooping into his occasion which he wanted to keep a secret because of which the bridegroom then started sweating and made some calls to the higher-ups to drop the story.
Even Ekta did not know about Shakti and Neha's nuptial
knot for the longest time, we guess. Shakti was heard telling people during the
shaadi that nobody should tell Ekta about the shaadi since he and Neha were
going to be romantically involved in the show.
We had also told you at that time, they might have a second wedding to make it official for fans.
So here it is! The couple put out a wedding photograph with their statements this morning. Now whether this picture is of 2014 or from an actual ceremony which took place on April 6, we don't know. But we're glad that the lovebirds have made their status official now.
While talking to a leading daily about their hush-hush
wedding, Sakti Arora said, “We had the haldi ceremony in the morning and pheras
in the evening. It was a private affair with only our immediate families in
attendance. Both of us have been relatively free over the past few months and
so, decided to take the plunge. It seemed like the perfect time, as I am
planning to take up something soon and will become busy.”
He further added, “The feeling is yet to sink in and I don’t feel like a married man yet. Abhi tak kuch samajh nahi aa raha, but it’s a nice feeling.”
When asked about the speculations that they got married
two years ago and he says, “I can’t change that because being public figures,
we are bound to be judged and speculated upon all the time.”
Well, we wish the couple many congratulations.
