Actor and comic Balraj Syal has married singer Deepti Tuli in a private ceremony. The wedding took place on August 7 in Jalandhar but it’s only now that he has spoken approximately it publicly.
Provided the constraints of social distancing, the wedding took place in the presence of just 30 people. The couple is planning a wedding reception at a later date in order that they may be able to party with all their friends.
The actor, who also appeared on the show Mujhse Shaadi Karoge, revealed that he and Dipti met in July final years all the way through a shooting in Chandigarh. Speaking to Times of India, he said he used to be anchoring a show where she used to be also performing. “I went to shoot for Fear Factor: ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and kept texting her, but didn’t get a desired response. It used to be all the way through my go back and forth to Turkey and Greece that we started having long conversations. I met her a few times after I returned, and proposed marriage to her on my birthday (January 26), all the way through a getaway in Goa. She used to be taken by surprise and didn’t respond immediately,” he said in the interview.
It used to be after the wedding-based reality show ended that their families met every other and the wedding used to be finalised. “All through the initial months of lockdown, I didn’t wish to have a social wedding owing to safety concerns. Then I regarded as a registered marriage, but agni ke saamne phere lena zaroori tha. In spite of everything, our parents asked us to come home once the flights resumed and our wedding date used to be constant. The shaadi happened with the entire rituals,” he added
