The wait is finally over… After weeks of speculation and amidst high drama Ratan Rajpoot, India’s chahiti bitiya chooses Delhi based Abhinav Sharma as her life partner at her glittering swayamvar ceremony hosted by Imagine TV at the Tulip Star Hotel in Mumbai on Sunday, July 3, 2011.
After all the hurdles and declarations of love, spiced up with a lot of drama, romance, laughter, fun, singing, dancing, eliminations and a host of surprises Abhinav reached his penultimate place by winning over Ratan heart.
True to the spirit and grandeur of a Swayamvar, the atmosphere around breathed an air of royalty from every aspect ranging from the ambience to the cuisine. Ratan looked stunning as a princess in a Rani Pink lehenga embellished with kundan, zardosi and swarovski, while she adorned herself with invaluable jewellery set in gold with intricate kundan and ethnic Indian jadau from Golecha Jewellers, the plush store located inBandra, Mumbai. Ratan made her decision amidst the presence of hundreds of people ranging from close friends to the who’s who of the television industry.
An ecstatic Ratan Rajpoot says ‘Marriage is like a metamorphosis for a girl. I’m readying myself to enter the second phase of my life. Though I’m nervous about it I am extremely excited about what the future will bring for us.”
A delighted Abhinav Sharma said, “I am thrilled that Ratan considered me worthy enough to be her life partner. I wish to honor her decision with a life-long commitment to her. I hope to live up to her expectations and give her all the love and happiness that she truly deserves. We have decided to get engaged today, but before we take this further we both need time to know each other better off camera, and I want her to understand my family and lifestyle back in Delhi.”
Wishing the couple, Nikhil Madhok, Senior Director Marketing and Communications Imagine TV said, “We are delighted that Ratan has found a life partner in Abhinav through this Swayamvar. We are pleased to have been a part of their journey of coming together. We wish them all the very best for their future.”
