The ceremony took place at Surat in the presence of family and friends.
Speaking about the same, an elated Sanjay said, “The engagement happened at Surat. We opted for getting engaged at Surat since my family resides near Surat. All my relatives are either from Surat, Navsari, Baroda and Ahmedabad and we chose to get engaged in Surat, since it would be convenient for them to attend our engagement party. Poonam’s family flew all the way from Delhi to Surat to attend and celebrate with us.”
The couple looked spectacular at the ceremony. Sanjay said, “I wore an navy blue Indo-Western outfit that I designed and Poonam opted for an outfit by Nimrat Gill & Jyoti Gill.”
Besides family, many close friends also made it for the ceremony. “A lot of our friends from Mumbai drove down specially to Surat to attend our engagement party. Friends like Vahbiz Dorabjee, Pankit Thakker, Shivya Pathania, Kinshuk Vaidya, Zaan Khan, Nupur Sanon, Aditi Rathore, Abhishek Bajaj, Abhishek Kapur, Ruhi Chaturvedi, Arhaan Behl, Shalu Shreya, Malhar Pandya and Priya Patidar attended the celebrations,” he ends.
Sanjay and Poonam have been together since the last couple of years. “It’s been six blissful years, since we met. We met on Facebook for the first time. I added her on Facebook when I happened to bump into her profile and the rest is history,” he says, adding, “In person, we met at the airport for the first time when she travelled all the way to Mumbai from Delhi after we became friends through Facebook. This was followed by phone calls and SMSs.”
Ask him if it was love at first sight, and he says, “Yes, it was love at first sight for me. I felt the world stood still and she was walking towards me in slow motion, when I saw her for the first time at the Mumbai airport.”
The couple haven’t zeroed down a date to get married as yet. “There are no plans for the wedding as yet because I’m busy shooting for my show Kundali Bhagya at present. Poonam also would soon start shooting for her next show soon, so currently we both are focusing on our careers. We are going with the flow and we believe the wedding will happen whenever it’s destined to,” he says.
We cant wait for Sanjay and Poonam to take nuptial vows soon!
