This jodi’s marriage story has all the spice to make it to the 70mm. They fell in love on the sets of Colors’ Uttaran and later got secretly married under different names in Ghaziabad on 9 February. (wow, super cool we must say). After a lot of hullaballoo, they went on records and in a press conference announced about their marriage (well, in this marriage there was no shehnai, but still it hit the right notes). They said that the wedlock was not a secretive affair but they exchanged garlands as Nandish’s nani’s last wish was to see them married. Well, we all want to thank nani. The hot couple, whose chemistry burnt down many television screens, deserves to be together. Furthermore, Tellychakkar.com also reported that in the coming year they plan to get married as per proper Hindu rituals.
