TV actress Sheetal Pandya, whom we saw in shows like Udaan, Chidiyaghar and Tu Suraj Main Saanjh Piyaji is all set to tie the knot. Sheetal will marry her long time beau Abhishek Bhattacharya on November 20 and she is all excited for it. Talking to us exclusively, Sheetal not only revealed her wedding details but also shared her love story with us.
Bride to be Sheetal shares, "The marriage is happening on November 20 and I am marrying Abhishek Bhattacharya who is a doctor by profession and we know each other since our school days. He is based in Leicester, United Kingdom and we were supposed to get engaged earlier this year but he couldn't come to India due to the pandemic, so we had a zoom call engagement with both our families. It was one of a kind and a lot of fun in itself."
The couple will have a traditional Bengali wedding with limited people due to COVID-19. "Considering the current scenario, we are having an intimate wedding with our family. Since he's a doctor himself he is very particular about not violating rules and maintaining social distancing, in fact, he keeps reminding me all the time to wear my mask properly. It is going to be a traditional Bengali style wedding by the poolside at the Westin Mumbai Garden City. Once things get better, we'll have a lavish celebration with frnds and loved ones," said the actress.
Sheetal, who is all soaked in love further shares, "It is a love marriage. We went to school together but we were hardly friends. He was the topper while I was more into cultural activities like dance and drama. Years later, he saw me on TV in one of my episodes and pinged me on Facebook, that's how we started talking and eventually became friends.We started catching up often if I packed up early & gradually I started confiding in him.We share a lot in common & he is a good writer too. I thought of him to be a nerd but he's not one in actuality. One of the things he loves and I absolutely hate is his Xbox for he can't stop playing it."
The actress will not be leaving her profession behind for settling down in personal life. Sheetal discloses, "I will most certainly keep working after marriage too for I love to work and I feel incomplete if I'm not in front of a camera. I've been working since I was 18 yrs old. I would just say work is a part of me & who I am as an individual. I am grateful Abhishek is extremely supportive of me & my work. Although I won't be in India post marriage, I will continue to create dance videos and content online. I would keep working on digital content and films."
