It was only a while ago when it was confirmed that actor and comedian Balraj was not only in a relationship but also engaged. It did come across as a major surprise where little was known about his love life before his declaration.
And now, in yet another hush-hush affair, Balraj is now a married man as he has tied the knot with singer Deepti Tuli.
In fact, they got married in Jalandhar back on 7th August 2020. Finally opening on his story about meeting his dream woman and how it happened, a lot of interesting things were revealed. In an interview with Bombay Times, Balraj said, “We met in July last year, during a shoot in Chandigarh. I was hosting a show, while she was performing in it with her band. I developed an instant liking for her, but I guess, she didn’t like me much or else she would have responded to my text messages (laughs!). Later, I went to shoot for Fear Factor: 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' and kept texting her, but didn’t get a desired response. It was during my trip to Turkey and Greece that we started having long conversations. I met her a couple of times after I returned, and proposed marriage to her on my birthday (January 26), during a getaway in Goa. She was taken by surprise and didn’t respond immediately. Then, 'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge' came my way. After coming out, I spoke to her again about marriage and she agreed. The families met just a few days before the lockdown in March and our horoscopes, too, matched. The interesting part is, she lives 15 minutes away from my home in Jalandhar. Woh faasla cover karne mein itna time lag gaya.”
When asked if he would have preferred to have a wedding when things would return to normalcy, he said, “During the initial months of lockdown, I didn’t want to have a social wedding owing to safety concerns. Then I considered a registered marriage, but agni ke saamne phere lena zaroori tha. Finally, our parents asked us to come home once the flights resumed and our wedding date was fixed. The shaadi happened with all the rituals.”
Finally, when asked as to why did he choose to be mum about his marriage, he said, “We could only invite 30 people. I have a large circle of friends and it wouldn’t have been possible to invite everyone. I plan to host a huge reception once the situation is back to normal.”
We wish the newlywed couple loads of congratulations and a blessed life ahead.
