Standup co­me­dian Bharti Singh (above) de­nies en­gage­ment ru­mours with beau, writer Haarsh Limb­hachiyaa.

Talk­ing ex­clu­sively to HT City, she says, “I’m sur­prised peo­ple have started con­grat­u­lat­ing me 15 days ahead of my en­gage­ment. I’m get­ting en­gaged but only by the end of this month.” Rub­bish­ing the re­ports that they had a pri­vate cer­e­mony last Sun­day, Bharti adds, “It was a house­warm­ing cer­e­mony, as Haarsh has bought a new house in And­heri. Since it was a re­li­gious cer­e­mony, so we took our friends out for a party.”

Bharti says it’s wrong to as­sume and spread ru­mours. “If I par­tied, it’s as­sumed that I got en­gaged. To­mor­row, if I wear a bri­dal out­fit for an episode, they’ll de­clare my wed­ding. If I buy a car or ring, they’ll say Haarsh gifted me. Why? Am I not mak­ing enough money? It’s so un­ple­sant to read such de­mean­ing things.”

Though Bharti laughs off at th­ese re­ports, she says her fam­ily does get af­fected. “My mom hasn’t read the news yet; she’ll get to know. I don’t have a fa­ther, so she gets wor­ried. I’m still the same small town girl from a mid­dle class fam­ily in Pun­jab.”

On her par­tic­i­pa­tion in re­al­ity show Nach Baliye, Bharti con­firms, “It’s true. I’m keen but Haarsh isn’t agree­ing. I’m try­ing to con­vince him. He doesn’t want to get em­bar­rassed on na­tional tele­vi­sion.” And what about the Novem­ber 2017 wed­ding? “No date has been fixed as yet. Maybe this year end or start­ing of the next year. Also, con­trary to the re­ports I’ve been dat­ing Haarsh for two years, I’d like to clar­ify that we’ve known each other for seven years and this is our eighth year to­gether as a cou­ple,” she says.
