Another celebrity couple is ready to say ‘I Do’. After a surprise engagement last year in Spain, actors Maheck Chahal and Ashmit Patel are planning to tie the knot by the end of this year. And in keeping with the current fad of destination wedding, the couple is also set to have a low-key ceremony outside of India, a la Virushka.
“It will be a destination wedding. I am born and raised in Norway, so my whole family is in Norway, and half of Ashmit’s family lives in Europe. Our wedding will take place in the second half of this year. We are yet to zero down on the date,” Maheck reveals.
The couple have known each other for more than 12 years and started dating a few years ago. Maheck says the concept of a grand wedding ceremony with extended families no longer makes sense in today’s scenario and that is why most couples these days are opting for destination weddings with close friends and family.
“Even Anushka had a small, intimate wedding. Everyone is doing that. It makes more sense.”
“We will have a small intimate wedding attended by family and close friends. I don’t want to get all worked up in my own wedding. Even Anushka [Sharma] had a small, intimate wedding. Everyone is doing that. It makes more sense to have a small wedding and go for a grand honeymoon,” she adds.
But Maheck is yet to get into the bride mode as she is busy with the renovation of the couple’s house. The actor says before getting married, she wants to get their home ready so that it is an easy transition.
“People get married and then renovate their houses; we are doing it the other way around. We want to spend good money in our house because we are going to live it.”
Both Maheck and Ashmit were seen in the recently-released film Nirdosh, which also stars Arbaaz Khan and Manjari Fadnnis.This is the first time that the couple has worked together in a feature film; they have earlier participated in a TV reality show (Bigg Boss).
“I want to work with him again. I want to do a period film or a story set in a village or small town in which we will get the opportunity to be in a completely different zone and in different characters,” says Maheck.
