As far as arranged matches go, this one is quite a story. Singer-composer Ankit Tiwari – famous for songs such as Galliyan and Sunn Raha Hai – is all set to tie the knot on February 23 in Kanpur. The woman is Pallavi Shukla who met the singer’s grandmother on a train and the two hit it off. Ankit’s granny liked Pallavi so much that she immediately decided that she is the perfect match for the singer, according to a Mumbai Mirror report.

That was late in 2017 and the wedding is now on the cards. Pallavi and Ankit will get engaged on February 20 and the wedding is scheduled three days later with a reception on February 26. After Ankit wraps up his work commitments, the family will hold another reception in Mumbai, the report says.

Talking to the tabloid, Ankit said, “Once dadi announced that Pallavi would be the family’s daughter-in-law, everyone agreed. I’m happy that the family is happy and a little nervous too. She is a very sweet and simple girl. During our first meeting there were 10 others seated between us.” He revealed that Pallavi is a mechanical engineer and is based in Bengaluru.
