How the couple met?
The couple met later – first Neil was introduced to Rukmini, he said, in an interview. A common family friend talked to Neil about Rukmini but he didn’t give her much of a thought. Later, his father insisted that he meet her at least once. So he did and he found that he could really get along well with her.
He said that he instantaneously felt that she was the one for him. He said that he had been looking over throughout the world for his “special someone” and she was right beside him. It was a chance coincidence that Rukmini happens to live right next to his Andheri pad. Even though their families were close, he had never met her.
About the bride-to-be
Rukmini Sahay has studied in Aurangabad. She has completed a course in the aviation industry and is a professional at it. Her family and Neil’s family are quite close. Hence, when they approached the duo with the idea of marriage, neither of them objected.
Rukmini is interested in education and environment. She has been thorough with what she likes. In fact her soon-to-be father in law is quite in awe of her. He said that she reflects the same values and ethics that Neil has been brought up with and she fits in the family perfectly. He didn’t fail to mention that he “complements” Neil in every way. No wonder, both the families are now counting the days till the final knot gets tied.
Neil does not have any linkup rumors with any costars he has worked with. The would-be couple dated for a month before they decided to tie the knot. Neil has now moved in to his Andheri pad which he specially designed for Rukmini.
Neil is obviously very happy with this affair. He took to twitter to thank fans and to express his happiness over the entire affair. He mentioned “means a lot” that his fans wished him well. Sophie Choudhary and Abhishek Bachchan are among the ones who congratulated him.
Arranged marriage: why?
Neil expressed that he is very old school when it comes to choosing the life partner for himself. So he left the decision to his parents to find him the perfect soul mate. So when his family approached him with Rukmini’s marriage proposal, he thought it best to go ahead with their choice. He thinks that “there couldn’t have been a better choice than Rukmini” for marriage.
