Heena was love at first sight for Anas Rashid

Ac­tor Anas Rashid broke many hearts when he got hitched to Heena Iqbal in Septem­ber, last year. It was an ar­ranged match. The ac­tor says that he re­alised that Heena was the one for him, when he met her for the first time, in March 2017.

To cel­e­brate their first Valen­tine’s Day to­gether, Anas has planned a sur­prise hol­i­day with Heena.

“We are in Ben­galuru and from here we will go to Ooty and a few other des­ti­na­tions. It’s a week-long hol­i­day for us. We’ve been talk­ing about vis­it­ing these places for a long time. But, ini­tially Heena had no idea about it, as I had told her that we will go to Chandigarh [to visit rel­a­tives]. Only af­ter we reached the air­port, she came to know about it and was sur­prised,” he says.

The Diya Aur Baati Hum ac­tor says that his life has changed for good af­ter meet­ing Heena. “Love is faith. With Heena around, I’ve de­vel­oped more re­spect to­wards var­i­ous re­la­tion­ships in my life.” he adds.

We tried get­ting in touch with Heena to find out if she has any thing planned for Anas, too. But the lat­ter in­formed that she is not com­fort­able talk­ing to me­dia. “Heena is not a part of show­biz, and prefers stay­ing away. But at the same time, she un­der­stands what my pro­fes­sion de­mands and how things work here.”

The TV heart-throb adds, “Pre­vi­ously, she used to get sur­prised when peo­ple would sur­round me and recog­nise me as Sooraj Rathi (his char­ac­ter in Diya Aur Baati Hum), but now she has got used to it.” And how does she re­act to his fe­male fan fol­low­ing? “Heena finds it nor­mal. She is like... ‘yeh to hoga hi aur hona bhi chahiye… achhi baat hain (it will ob­vi­ously hap­pen, and it’s good)’,” he laughs.
