Tring Tring wearing the “RING” – Yes its official – I am engaged. I wanted it to happen first and then blog which is why I’ve been maintaining a silence. But the press always beats me to it! The media attention can sometimes get to you, but have to admit that they looked more excited than my parents and some looked genuinely happy which was very endearing. If this was the reaction for the engagement, I am dreading the wedding. Ha ha! It’s been a time of both - joy and sorrow for me, the joy is obvious because Raj and I feel happy to take our relationship to the next level, but as most of you know my sister Shamita is still in the Big Boss house and could not attend. She doesn’t even know. The date was decided a week ago and we all came to the consensus that we should go ahead because another good mahurat (auspicious time) was a long way off – and considering Raj’s parents and relatives were down from London for a week… so it seemed convenient as I leave after a week to shoot for “Desire” to complete the film in Hyderabad. Raj leaves for the IPL workshop in Bangkok which I’ll miss because of my shoot – Hence we thought it best to go ahead with this date under these circumstances.
As much as I wanted to have Shamita there during this special moment, I had to be considerate towards Raj’s family too… so for all those who wanted to know WHY I went ahead without Shamita – it was a difficult decision but this is the answer. I know Shamita will be shocked (she’ll kill me) but still be happy, that’s what family is about, and our LOVE is unconditional. Missed her more than words can describe but I’m sure she’ll understand! Can’t wait to show her my ring!! Didn’t have the heart to get her out as she’s doing so well in Big Boss! I’ve never commented on what I think of her in there, but just want to say she’s been the pampered baby in our house, it made our whole family so proud to see her have no airs and do all the chores with no qualms. She’s never cooked in her life and I saw her make ROTIS!! Felt terrible watching her cry on TV, but I am amazed to see her growth on this show, this will definitely make her a stronger person. Speaking out of experience I know how difficult living in the BB house is! But so proud of the way she’s conducting herself with so much dignity.
Anyway the engagement was strictly a family affair – just his and my family and two of my friends – kept it simple and traditional. A lot of people asked me if I was nervous - I guess I would have been if I wasnt sure. But I have to admit I had a sinking feeling in my stomach just when I was reaching Raj’s house, but as soon as I saw Raj’s face, I had a smile on mine. PHEW!
I know everyone’s eager to know about the wedding date. All I can say is YES it’s been finalized and will make an official announcement as soon as I know when Shamita’s coming out!
To all my relatives, friends and fans – thank you for all your good wishes. Need them badly . Can’t wait to tell you when the big day is as I’ve promised, will definitely keep you posted on my blog – so till then watch this space!! Love to all
