Her pictures went viral on social media on Wednesday. Talking to us, she says it is an arranged match. “I met Urvish (Desai) a few months ago, my parents had been searching. When I met him, everything was great, we clicked as we are very similar in nature. We spoke for a few months, but it wasn’t a very typical arranged marriage process. We decided to take the leap only after we got to know each other well. He is a gem of a person and been absolutely amazing,” she gushes. The wedding is set for later this year. “We want a winter wedding, but the dates aren’t finalised yet,” she adds.

Khara was last seen in the 2016 film MS Dhoni- The Untold Story, and had taken a big break from acting both before and after that. She is currently working at a law firm, “I was abroad for an exchange programme, after studying law in Hyderabad for four years. I came back in 2021. I left acting because you know how important class ten is in India, you have to pay a lot of attention to your studies. I was a very studious child, and good in studies. Acting requires dedication, and I wanted to study further. Being a full time actor and managing studies as a child was easy, but as you move ahead, it becomes different.”

Khara is still offered films and shows, but she is “happy” switching her career to law. “As much as I miss acting, I am really happy with the transition. I do get offers all the time, I did read a few scripts here and there, but for some reason, didn’t end up doing them. Earlier, it was university which I wanted to give priority to. Now I am working in a law firm. I have moved on slightly from acting. But if I do come across interesting scripts, I will try if I can go ahead with it,” she ends.
