Rakhi Sawant’s ex-flame Abhishek Awasthi is all set to tie the knot with his girlfriend Ankita Goswami on February 6 in Mumbai.
The wedding will be followed by a lavish reception party that is scheduled to take place in Abhishek’s hometown, Kanpur.
Abhishek and Ankita got engaged on February 5, 2017, in the presence of their friends and families. They also did their pre-wedding shoot in Greece.
Talking about his marriage plans, Abhishek stated to a leading daily, “I’ve always wanted to get married a day after the first anniversary of my engagement. Also, we didn’t have a roka. Maine bas ladki ko rok kar rakha tha (laughs). I decided to get married in Mumbai as many of my industry friends would not be able to come to Kanpur. A reception will be held in Kanpur later for my relatives.”
On being asked about his performance at Sangeet ceremony, Abhishek said, “I am going to perform to Tenu Leke Main Javanga (Salaam-E-Ishq), as it’s my favourite song. I will also pull in Ankita to shake a leg with me.”
Ankita is a budding chef. Talking about her, he said, “She will enrol in the course in April this year. I want her to become a chef as Ankita khaana kamaal ka banaati hai. My friends and I are big fans of her culinary skills. Meri paanchon ungliyaan ghee mein hai aur sar kadhaai mein.”
When asked about his honeymoon plans, Abhishek concluded by saying, “We plan to go to Italy. However, we will have to postpone it by a couple of months as I will be shooting and we also have a close relative’s wedding to attend.”
As we all know, Abhishek was in serious relationships with Rakhi Sawant. He was in a relationship with Rakhi for about three years. They had even participated in Nach Baliye 3 as a couple and were runners-up on the show.
He also went on to admit later that dating Rakhi was the worst decision of his life. “She is a shameful past and the biggest mistake of my life.” he said.
Prior to Ankita, Abhishek was engaged to Kalpana Sonawane, and they were to get married by the end of 2014.
