Sushmita Sen’s brother reveals details of his wedding, says ‘my sister is extremely fond of Charu’
“You don’t really take a ‘plunge’ when it comes to a decision on marriage,” begins Rajeev Sen, brother of actor Sushmita Sen, who is all set to get hitched to television actor Charu Asopa in June. Sushmita was the first one to break the news on her Instagram account on May 4, with a picture of the beaming couple.
The duo will first do a court marriage on June 7, and then, Charu says, “We will have a destination wedding in Goa on June 16. The theme of the wedding is ‘Royal traditional’ so everything will be in that style. Functions will be engagement on 14th, followed by sangeet and mehendi on June 15 and haldi and wedding on June 16. We are getting married in both Bengali and Rajasthani style and rituals as Rajeev is a Bengali and I am a Rajasthani.”
While Sushmita remains a popular name, not much is known about Rajeev. Ask him why he stays away from the limelight, the businessman says, “I have always been a very private person, I value my privacy but having said that I have had my own share of limelight.”
The two met, through a common friend, Charu tells us. What made them rush into marriage suddenly? “I was very sure this is the right time to do it , in other words my heart & mind were fully ready for it.. she is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me,” Rajeev says.
There were rumours that Sushmita wasn’t happy with Rajeev’s relationship with Charu. However, her Instagram post put all of them to rest. On that, Rajeev says, “Rumours will always be rumours, this has been a part of our life since many years. We have always sweetly ignored it with a smile. My sister is extremely fond of Charu and I couldn’t be more happier!”
In fact, she has been the one working hard for the preparations. “My sister is the most excited for my wedding with Charu. She has been working very hard day and night to make things happen, as we don’t have much time at all. June 16 could only happen because of my sister , mom and dad. It’s never easy to do things at the last minute. I am very blessed,” he adds.
Charu too shares a warm equation with her future sister-in-law. “She is a beautiful person inside out and has been very loving and respectful. Jitni khoobsurat who baahar se hain, uss se kahin zyada woh ek khoobsurat insaan hai. I feel very lucky and blessed to have her as my sister-in-law,” she says.
