It’s going to be a winter wedding for lovebirds Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan. The couple, who got engaged this April, will be mostly tying the knot by the end of this year.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, the actress revealed, “It could be towards the year end or a little earlier. We have shortlisted a few days but are yet to zero in on D-day.”
The couple have been travelling quite a lot lately from Jamaica to New York and Dubai. While earlier it was just professional commitments that let Zaheera travel to places but after getting engaged, he and his fiance have been travelling the world for pleasure! “I have always enjoyed travelling and now it’s even better because the most important person in your life is with you. Zaheer has travelled a lot too, but only to cricket venues. Now he’s exploring the other side of the world not related to cricket,“ stated the actress.
The couple met through common friends and began dating. They have been together for two years and Sagarika can’t stop gushing about him. “Zaheer is so easy to be around and so grounded despite achieving so much. I have so much respect for him,” she says, insisting they are like any normal couple on a beautiful journey together.
The 30-year-old actress is also completely gaga over her soon-to-be husband. She told HT that the reason why she feels so connected with Zaheer is that he completely understands her. ” Definitely, he’s a friend first, and everything [else] later. I feel that’s the most important thing one needs in their partner,” she said.
While she sounds like an excited bride-to-be, she will continue working as an actress! Sagarika states, “Definitely, I’m just looking at doing some good work.” She also confirmed that she would love to do more roles and hopes to bag good offers in the coming days. “Big or small, the medium doesn’t matter. I did a Marathi film (Premachi Goshta in 2013) because it helped me grow as an actor. I’m guessing priorities will change after marriage but Zaheer is supportive of my decision knowing I love being on the sets,” she concludes.
And Zaheer, on the other hand, though now retired from international cricket, will continue to focus on the game, she revealed.
