‘I have mar­ried Ankita thrice’

Ac­tors Sushant Singh Ra­jput and Ankita Lokhande are all set to tie the knot in De­cem­ber next year. How­ever, Sushant in­sists that for him, it will just be a feel­ing of deja vu, on the D-Day. “I have got­ten mar­ried to her three times on our TV show, so it will just be an encore of the same thing,” he says.

Ask him why they took so long to get mar­ried, when they have been see­ing each other for six years, and he says, “My dad told me when I was very young, that I should not get mar­ried be­fore 30. His only ad­vice to me was to live my life,” says the 29-year-old, but clar­i­fies, “My de­ci­sion to get mar­ried next year has got noth­ing to do with my age. It just hap­pened nat­u­rally. I am hon­estly not sure. I mean for the past few months, I have been very con­fi­dently say­ing that our mar­riage will hap­pen in 2016, but Ankita may sud­denly say no to get­ting mar­ried next year. You never know.”

In fact, Ankita, he says, wasn’t happy that Sushant made the an­nounce­ment on his own. “She (Ankita) called me one morn­ing and for the first time she asked me why I was an­nounc­ing our mar­riage plans with­out even ask­ing her.”

We hear that Ankita wants to have an elab­o­rate big-fat wed­ding. Ask him what he wants, and he in­sists he is happy to do what­ever she wants. “When I say big, fat wed­ding, I mean I will be in­vest­ing 10 days of my life to the oc­ca­sion. I don’t mean it in the scale of the wed­ding or the num­ber of peo­ple in­volved,” he says, adding, “My side of fam­ily is very chilled out. They will be fine even if I de­cide to have a court mar­riage. She wants to get mar­ried in a palace in Jodh­pur, and I am fine with that.”

I have got­ten mar­ried to her thrice on our TV show al­ready ... so it will be just an encore of the same thing ... a sort of a deja vu
