Finally, the day has come when the couple who dated each other for 12 years got engaged. We can say a season of marriages and engagements is going on in tinseltown. And the latest couple to jump into this is Ashmit Patel and Maheck Chahal. Every one of us was wondering when these lovebirds will give a commitment to each other. And now the wait ended as this couple has finally exchanged rings. And this was done during their European holiday and we can say that it was one of the romantic proposals from Ashmit’s side.
In an interaction with Bombay Times, Ashmit pointed that, “I never told Maheck that I was carrying a ring with me. We were supposed to meet her family in Norway and I wanted to propose to her in Paris, the city of love, but it did not happen that way. We were at a cozy restaurant in Marbella (Spain), which had a fantastic view, and I decided to propose.”
And as expected, when Maheck was talking about this romantic engagement with indianexpress.com she told,“It was a surprise for me and I was left speechless at the moment. We were holidaying and he was carrying the ring all this while secretly. He arranged for a romantic surprise and blew me away completely. It was a beautiful moment, and even though it’s yet to completely sink in, we both are enjoying the phase. From friends to girlfriend-boyfriend and now fiance, our relationship has grown and I am so proud of that.”
Further, the best thing was that the lovebirds shared the same image on their Instagram profiles with different and lovable captions. While Maheck wrote, “He stole my heart, so I’m going to steal his last name. I said YES! @ashmitpatel #engaged #love #isaidyes #marbella #happiness #ring #romance #suprise #ashma.” Ashmit captioned it as, “She said YES!!! @maheckchahal #downonmyknee #engagement #ring #butwhichfinger #partnerforlife #bae #yesididit #aboutlastweek,”.
With the progressing discussion Ashmit on his part said, “It was so difficult to keep it all a secret from her while on the trip. We are both quite open to each other and making calls and chatting with friends secretly irked Maheck but thankfully she did not know what I had in my mind. The moment was so beautiful and it will always be etched in our memories. It was also quite a funny time for we didn’t know which hand and finger should the ring be put on. The entire restaurant was cheering for us and it was an esctatic moment.”
When he was asked what qualities of Mahek made him decide the same, he replied, “I think we really complement each other. The shortcomings that I have is made up by her strengths and vice versa. I think we are the ideal people to stay together. It’s been a long time that we have known each other and it will be all the more special to be together forever.”
Yet the marriage date isn’t fixed but the actor mentioned that it will happen soon. “We’ve met the families and everyone is super excited. We are yet to sit down and discuss on the dates but it will happen sometime in the next six months. We have been together for a long time but now we will be one, staying under the same roof. It is a bit scary but we both are excited about our bond to become much stronger. We both believe that marriages are for keeps and we will definitely make ours a wonderful one.”
And when Mahek was asked if she is flaunting the engagement ring she broke to laugh and replied, “Of course! But on a serious note, we girls today do not like to wear such heavy jewellery all the time. Ashmit’s mom has been telling me that I have to wear it all the time now and I too want to keep it close. It’s a very happy time for both of us and also our families.”
Let’s check out more images of them.
The lovebirds meet as friends at common parties, went gyming together and eventually struck in a sweet connection. They had also participated in Big Boss and later in Power Couple. Ashmit was seen in Salman Khan film “Jai Ho” while Maheck made her appearance in TV show Kavach, Kaali Shaktiyon Se.
Congratulations to Ashmit Patel and Maheck Chahal.
