Actor Saleem Zaidi, who is seen in the show Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai produced by Benifer S. Kohli and Sanjay Kohli (Edit II), will be tying the knot with Delhi-based-girl Sahiba Zaidi on 8th April in Delhi. The actor says that the match is a culmination of an arranged set up, so much so that he hasn't even met his wife-to-be!
"I am getting married to Sahiba Zaidi from Delhi. The wedding functions will continue for a week with many rituals and ceremonies. The wedding festivities will kickstart with a mayoon (haldi) ceremony, followed by a mehndi night. Then, the main wedding function will include a Nikah after which there will be a Walima(reception) on the 10th of April in Rampur.
Finally, the celebrations will culminate with a chowthi ceremony on the fourth day after the Nikah which includes some fun rituals between the bride and the groom. It is a complete arranged match and we have never met," he says.
The actor says that he is lucky to have got the chance to meet his bride in this traditional manner. "I am extremely happy that in today's times and despite being a part of the glamour world, I have decided to marry the girl chosen exclusively by my sisters. They have taken care of me in every possible way since my mother's untimely demise when I was quite small.
Moreover, I want my friends, fans and well-wishers to bless me with all their love and support as I begin a new chapter in my life. They all are always in my heart and I am fortunate to have got so much respect and appreciation from all of them. I want them to continue loving and supporting me as they have always done," he says.
The actor is missing having his parents with him on this day. "I will deeply and truly miss my father on this occasion, who I am sure, along with my mother, will be watching and showering me with blessings from heaven up above. It is with their blessings only that I have got an elder brother like Adeel Zaidi who is a father figure in my life," he says.
