It’s raining weddings and engagements in tinseltown. And the latest couple to jump onto the bandwagon of commitment is Ashmit Patel and Maheck Chahal. The two have known each other for more than a decade now, but began dating only two years ago. After being steady ever since, the love birds have finally exchanged rings in a rather dreamy manner.
Both Ashmit and Maheck shared the same picture on their Instagram profiles, but with different and adorable captions. While Ashmit wrote, “She said YES!!! @maheckchahal #downonmyknee #engagement #ring #butwhichfinger #partnerforlife #bae #yesididit #aboutlastweek,” Maheck captioned it as, “He stole my heart, so I’m going to steal his last name. I said YES! @ashmitpatel ❤❤❤#engaged #love #isaidyes #marbella #happiness #ring #romance #suprise #ashma.”
Talking about the romantic engagement, Maheck in an excited tone told indianexpress.com, “It was a surprise for me and I was left speechless at the moment. We were holidaying and he was carrying the ring all this while secretly. He arranged for a romantic surprise and blew me away completely. It was a beautiful moment, and even though it’s yet to completely sink in, we both are enjoying the phase. From friends to girlfriend-boyfriend and now fiance, our relationship has grown and I am so proud of that.”
Ashmit on his part told us, “It was so difficult to keep it all a secret from her while on the trip. We are both quite open to each other and making calls and chatting with friends secretly irked Maheck but thankfully she did not know what I had in my mind. The moment was so beautiful and it will always be etched in our memories. It was also quite a funny time for we didn’t know which hand and finger should the ring be put on. The entire restaurant was cheering for us and it was an esctatic moment.”
When asked what qualities in Maheck made him decide to spend the rest of his life with her, the Murder actor said, “I think we really complement each other. The shortcomings that I have is made up by her strengths and vice versa. I think we are the ideal people to stay together. It’s been a long time that we have known each other and it will be all the more special to be together forever.”
Though the couple is yet to fix up a marriage date, the actor said that it will happen soon. “We’ve met the families and everyone is super excited. We are yet to sit down and discuss on the dates but it will happen sometime in the next six months. We have been together for a long time but now we will be one, staying under the same roof. It is a bit scary but we both are excited about our bond to become much stronger. We both believe that marriages are for keeps and we will definitely make ours a wonderful one.”
When asked if she is flaunting the ring around, Maheck laughed out to state, “Of course! But on a serious note, we girls today do not like to wear such heavy jewellery all the time. Ashmit’s mom has been telling me that I have to wear it all the time now and I too want to keep it close. It’s a very happy time for both of us and also our families.”
