Actor Sagarika Ghatge and her cricketer fiance, Zaheer Khan, have set their wedding date for November 27.
Sagarika, who rose to fame after starring in Chak De! India (in which her hockey player character was dating a cricket star), confirmed the news to Indian Express.
The couple announced their engagement in May this year. “I am very very happy that I am going to spend the rest of my life with the right person. Quite excited that he is the one, and I will be spending my life with him,” she said.
The engagement announcement on social media was very much planned, says Sagarika. “Zaheer proposing to me was quite unexpected. Though I definitely knew we were thinking it was going to be the next step, I didn’t know when he was going to do it. As for announcing it on social media, it was more for people to give their blessing, because it would’ve anyway got out in some way or the other — we didn’t want to sit down and answer those questions,” she says. “People kept asking us, ‘What’s happening’, and we thought that when we have something to say, then why not just say it.”
She’d previously told HT, “The wedding is definitely going to happen towards the end of this year. Though no date has been fixed as of now, I’m quite looking forward to getting married.”
After a very private betrothal, the couple had a star-studded engagement party soon after the Indian Premier League Season 10 ended.
