It was literally love in the air for Amit Dolawat who first met his fiancee, Cheshta Sharma, on a flight, where she was an air hostess.
The “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” actor Amit himself announced it to his fans via a tweet and a post on his Instagram account.
The duo will be tying the knot on the day of love, i.e. Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2017.
alking about his romance, Amit recalls, “Most of our romance happened mid-air, as I would travel to different cities to meet her.”
And what’s a love story without adversities? It took the couple a long time to win their parents’ support. Says Amit, “I’m a Rajasthani Brahmin and Cheshta is a Punjabi. Our families were against the match because we’re from different castes. In fact, I never thought our relationship would culminate into marriage, because I would never have gone against my parents’ wishes.”
It was his ladylove’s dream to get married on Valentine’s Day. “Cheshta also wants to have not seven, but eight pheras. During the eighth phera, I have to lift her and vow that I will take her nakhras all my life like I have in the past,” he adds.
The haldi and sangeet will take place on February 12 and 13, while the reception will be held on the 14th. Amit says, “Unlike most receptions, Cheshta and I won’t sit on a stage. We will walk around and meet everyone. The idea is to dance and enjoy.”
