‘Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu’ singer – Ankit Tiwari got engaged to Pallavi Shukla on February 20 in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. It is an arranged match for Ankit, wherein, his paternal grandmother played cupid for him. Ankit’s grandma met Pallavi on an express train while boarding it from Kanpur to Delhi.
The engagement ceremony will be followed by a traditional haldi, sangeet and mehendi ceremony. Later, they will get married in a typical North Indian style in Kanpur on February 23. The duo will host a reception on February 26. The families will also host a reception in Mumbai once Ankit returns from his Delhi, Chandigarh and Kolkata tours by the month-end.
“Usually weddings in our family last 10-12 days, but Ankit doesn’t have the time. His shows are booked months in advance and we worked around his dates,” Ankit’s older brother Ankur, who also manages his work, told Mumbai Mirror, adding that his conservative in-laws don’t wish to share a pic of the bride-to-be before the pheras.
The couple will dance to the tunes of Ankit’s award-winning Aashiqui 2 track ‘Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu’ as well as his other chartbusters, ‘Galliyan’ and ‘O Yara’. The groom describes his first meeting with Pallavi in Mumbai as a “private and personal affair”. “Once dadi announced that Pallavi would be the family’s daughter-in-law, everyone agreed. I’m happy that the family is happy and a little nervous too. She is a very sweet and simple girl. During our first meeting there were 10 others seated between us,” Ankit laughs.
Pallavi hails from Bangalore and is a mechanical engineer by profession. “I’ve introduced her and her family to my work and life in Mumbai where she will live after marriage,” Ankit told the publication.
