Pratigya actor Ankit Gera married Rashi Puri, an NRI from Nigeria on June 5. The wedding function attended by only 10 people was held in Chandigarh. The actor said it was an arranged marriage.
“It’s an arranged marriage. We are family friends. Our parents were looking for suitable partners for us and then they suggested to talk. We started talking in April and quickly developed a fondness for each other. She flew to India about three weeks ago for the wedding to meet me. Even if it was short lived, we got to know each other better and decided to take the plunge,” Ankit Gera told ETimes.
Sapne actor Suhane Ladakpan Ke also said he was never in favor of a lavish wedding. He said that while their families planned to set a date in December, he decided to hold a lockdown wedding “attended by people who are important to us.”
Speaking of his wife Rashi Puri, Ankit Gera said they are very different people. Interestingly enough, Rashi had no idea about his work as an actor and liked him as a person. The actor admitted that this quality made him fall in love with her.
Ankit Gera started his career with Mahi Way and has been part of shows like Maharakshak: Devi, Santoshi Maa, Agniphera and more recently Choti Sarrdaarni. He was also a contestant in Bigg Boss 9. The actor has been in a relationship with Adaa Khan, Roopal Tyagi and Sara Khan in the past.
