Ac­tor Anas Rashid of TV show Diya Aur Baati Hum fame says he gave a nod to his mother’s pro­posal to marry Pun­jab-based girl Hina (in­set) with­out even see­ing a pic­ture of her. Hina is 14 years younger to 38-year-old Anas. The wed­ding will take place later this year. “I had told Ammi that it’s her re­spon­si­bil­ity (to find him a bride) since I don’t have time. She told me about Hina, and asked if I’d like to see her pic­ture. ‘I said no. I wanted my de­ci­sion to be based on how her fam­ily is, rather than how she looks. The hope in my mother’s eyes was enough for me to agree. After I said yes, I saw her pic­ture and then a for­mal meet­ing was ar­ranged,” shares Anas. So, how was the meet­ing? “It was so awk­ward for us. We were made to sit to­gether... I was just look­ing at her. She was shiv­er­ing. It all hap­pened in a typ­i­cally tra­di­tional way,” says Anas, adding, “Hina car­ries her­self well, I was im­pressed the first time I met her.”

Does their age gap bother any­one in the fam­ily? “Hina had no idea about my age, nei­ther did her fam­ily. They thought I’m 25 or 26. Pun­jab mein agar kisi ko pata chalega ki I’m 38, toh yeh hi bolega that I’m very thin. I am young at heart. Hina is so sen­si­ble, even at 24,” says Anas.

Fans have been won­der­ing why not a bride from the TV in­dus­try. “For my fam­ily, the fact that I’m work­ing in this in­dus­try is enough... Agar bahu bhi kaam karegi, toh ghar pe kaun ra­hega?” laughs Anas.
