I can’t wipe the smile off my face: Parul Chauhan

Hindustan Times (Ranchi) - Live - - Entertainment - Kavita Awaasthi ■ [email protected]

Parul Chauhan can’t con­tain her ex­cite­ment as her wed­ding day is draw­ing closer. The Sapna Babul Ka- Bi­daai ac­tor will marry ac­tor Chi­rag Thakkar, after hav­ing dated him for three years. “My wed­ding will be a sim­ple one. We will have me­hendi and haldi func­tions on De­cem­ber 11, with just my friends. I will have the tra­di­tional wed­ding in a tem­ple on De­cem­ber 12 and a court mar­riage, too, on the same day. Then, there will be two re­cep­tions — one on De­cem­ber 16 in my na­tive place, Lakhim­pur Kheri, Ut­tar Pradesh, for my fam­ily and one in Mum­bai for my friends. I have been run­ning er­rands and tak­ing half-day offs from my shoot to make ar­range­ments for my in-laws, and it has been quite hec­tic.”

The ac­tor, busy shoot­ing for her daily se­rial, is adamant on hav­ing a wed­ding as she had al­ways imag­ined it. “I am not only de­sign­ing saris for my trousseau but have also got spe­cific jew­ellery pieces that brides tra­di­tion­ally wear in my com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing nose ring, toe rings, ban­gles etc.

I have gone mad shop­ping and I can’t wipe the smile off my face. I am look­ing for­ward to this new phase in my life,” she says.

Parul ad­mits her par­ents would of­ten bring up the topic of mar­riage, but she would tell them it would hap­pen when it does. “To­day, I am get­ting mar­ried to my best friend. What I love the most about Chi­rag is that he not only re­spects me but re­spects women in gen­eral,” she says.
