  • All About Aftab Shivdasani And Nin Dusanj's Dreamy Sri Lankan Wedding

    At a time when relationships around us are constantly crumbling, Aftab Shivdasani and wife Nin make you want to believe in love again. The actor, who has been happily married since 2014 recently decided to celebrate his relationship in a unique way – by tying the knot again!

    “We had registered our marriage three years ago but could never have a proper wedding,” laughs Nin, on the phone from Sri Lanka where the couple was enjoying their break. “We wanted to have a destination wedding but couldn’t zero in on a property despite visiting Thailand, Philippines, UK and other countries. Finally, on a trip to Sri Lanka on our anniversary, walking along the beach at Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort, we felt there was no better place than this for a wedding!” Thus began the efforts to organise a beautiful albeit intimate ceremony replete with band, baaja and baarat.

    THE LOVE STORY

    The Aftab-Nin story began a few years ago when Nin, a Hong Kong resident on a visit to Mumbai (her sister Parveen is married to Kabir Bedi), met Aftab at a book-signing event. “It was love at first sight,” says Aftab, “I didn’t know who she was but had this urge to meet her. A common friend introduced us and we went out for lunch. Soon we started meeting more frequently. The more I saw her, the more I realised the feeling was real. We started dating within a week!” (Note to cynics: If you thought love at first sight existed only in books and movies, this story should change your opinion!). “Yes even I started believing in it after experiencing it myself,” laughs Aftab.

    Within weeks, the actor was ready to pop the question. Once again, there was no filmy drama or grand proposal; he simply asked her to marry him and she said yes. Nin decided to move in with Aftab, leaving behind her life in Hong Kong. Undoubtedly, a difficult task but worth every moment. “The decision (to shift to India) wasn’t difficult, the process was. The lifestyle in India is very different. But I adapt easily."

    The couple lived in for a bit before deciding to make it legal and get their marriage registered though the thought of having a proper ceremony with rituals and traditions was always there at the back of their mind.

    THE WEDDING

    That dream finally came true in 2017, three years after their court marriage. Aftab and Nin took care of every detail to make it as special as possible and the two-day wedding rituals couldn’t have been more perfect!

    Breaking away from tradition, the free-spirited couple decided to incorporate local elements into their celebrations. Thus, from fire dancers at the mehendi to local drummers at the sangeet, a little bit of Sri Lanka made its way into an Indian wedding. They entered in a boat for the mehendi and were led to the beach. Another twist was having Aftab, who wore Troy Costa outfits for the big day, arrive with the baarat on an elephant while Nin – looking resplendent in a Yoshita Couture ensemble - demurely took the doli!

    Both Aftab and Nin were clear that they didn’t want a big, fat wedding. “The focus was on having a sophisticated event with like-minded friends and family,” they chorus. Incidentally, it didn’t even feel like a ‘remarriage’ says Nin. “Usually the bride and groom, when they get married without knowing each other well, feel nervous about their big day. But we were very chilled out. And that made it more sacred. The idea was purely to celebrate our love.” Post the wedding, the couple continued the honeymoon period and stayed back to bring in Nin’s birthday.

    KEEPING THE SPARK ALIVE

    We asked Aftab what it takes to sustain a relationship given the stresses that people go through. The actor has some simple, but very useful tips:

    * Keep ego out of the relationship.

    * Misunderstandings may happen, but look at the larger picture. Don’t get stuck in petty issues.

    * Respect your partner. “Nin didn’t know who I was when we met so that helped,” he says. “She fell in love with the person I was.”Read more at:black bridesmaid dresses | bridesmaid dresses melbourne

  • Anas Rashid on tying the knot with Heena Iqbal

    Diya Aur Baati Hum star Anas Rashid is a happy man today. The popular television star, who got married to Heena Iqbal on Saturday, can’t contain the happiness that his marriage has brought him. Talking exclusively to indianexpress.com, Anas shared, “I feel complete and content in my conjugal life. Heena is the right person that I was searching for. And now that I have her in my life, it is the most beautiful feeling.”

    The wedding that happened in Anas’ hometown Malerkotla was a grand affair. With families and friends by his side, the groom looked splendid. His producer Sumeet Mittal also traveled to celebrate the big day and even shared a post on Instagram.

    Talking further about the function, Anas shared, “Everyone kept complimenting us how great we looked together. Our wedding attire also received a lot of appreciation and we were blushing because of the praises. Being the eldest in the house, I was so elated to see my family happy. It was a feeling that I can’t even describe in words. I was nervous, happy, restless and what not. It was the best day in my life for sure.”

    On asked whether Heena has managed to mingle with his family, the actor shared with a smile, “It doesn’t seem that she is new in the family. Heena has already won over everyone and she has seamlessly blended with the family. Everyone loves and adores her and she too has been reciprocating it with equal love. As of now, she hasn’t cooked anything but my mother and sisters are helping her in understanding these things.”

    Lastly, the actor shared that the couple’s plans to come to Mumbai by end of the month. “We will have a party for all my Mumbai friends and associates once I am there. I want all of them to meet Heena.”

    Always wanting to get married to a traditional girl of his parents’ choice, the 39-year-old actor opted for an arranged marriage. Heena, who is only 24 years old, worked in the immigration sector but chose to quit her job to get married. The couple had got engaged earlier this year.

    Anas has been a part of shows like Prithviraj Chauhan, Kahin Toh Hoga and Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka in the past. He became a star with his portrayal of a man who helps his wife become an IPS officer in Diya Aur Baati Hum. Recently, the actor played a cameo in the show’s sequel Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji.Read more at:wedding dresses online australia | cheap wedding dresses brisbane

  • Here’s how Samatha Ruth Prabhu convinced Naga Chaitanya to make their relationship official

    Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya’s wedding is just a month away. They are ridiculously adorable together. The two have dated for quite some time and Naga recently opened up about how Samantha made him make their relationship official. At a press conference, Naga said, “We fell in love during the making of Ye Maaya Chesave in 2009 and the love affair continued very well in the following years. I was, however, delaying revealing to my parents about my love affair despite Sam’s insistence. One day, when we were chatting casually, Sam threatened to tie a ‘rakhi’ on me if I didn’t tell about the love to my parents. I was shocked by her threat and spoke about my love soon after to my parents and got their consent.”

    See now that’s how you make your guy introduce you to his family! Aren’t these two amazing? We love looking at the pictures of these two together. Though the two are getting married soon they revealed that the honeymoon will have to happen much later, courtesy work commitments. While Naga will be seen in Yuddham Sharanam, Samantha will be seen with Vijay in Mersal. Apart from that, the actress will also be seen in Mahanati and Rangasthalam.

    Sam and Naga’s engagement was one beautiful affair and their wedding will be even more beautiful. It’s going to be a three-day grand event in Goa. The two have planned a Church wedding followed by a traditional one. In fact, Sam will be wearing a sari that belonged to Naga’s grandmother for the traditional wedding ceremony. More than the couple, it’s their fans who are excited for their wedding. Replying to a fan, Samantha once said that she is already married to Naga Chaitanya which is why others seem more happy for them that the two.

    We know one thing for sure, Samantha is going to make one stunning bride. She looked so gorgeous at her engagement, we’re damn sure she is going to make heads turn on her wedding day.
