While several reports claim that stand up comedian Bharti Singh had a secret roka ceremony with long time-beau Haarsh Limbhachiyaa – writer of Comedy Nights Bachao. Bharti, however, is quite miffed with the rumours.
In an interview with HT, she said “It was a housewarming ceremony, as Harsh has bought a new house in Andheri. Since there was a puja and havan, we couldn’t offer drinks after a religious ceremony, so we took our friends out for a party.”
Bharti says such reports are extremely demeaning and she doesn’t like them at all. “If I partied, drank and posted pictures, it’s assumed that I got engaged. Tomorrow if I shoot for an episode and wear a bridal outfit, they’ll declare my wedding also. If I bought a car, they’ll say it’s a gift from Haarsh. If I flaunt my ring, they’ll assume he has put it on my finger. Why? Am I not making enough money? I slog so hard to earn and then to read such demeaning things is so unpleasant. We went to Dubai for a show and people said we have gone out for a pre-honeymoon. What is that supposed to mean?” she added.
She does admit that they do have plans of taking their relationship to the next level, but there’s still time for it. “No date has been fixed as yet. It would be either the end of this year or the beginning of next year. Also, contrary to the reports that I and Haarsh have been dating for two years, I’d like to clarify that we have known each other for seven years and this is our eighth year together as a couple,” she revealed.
