Actors Sachiin Joshi and Urvashi Sharma tied the knot recently. The couple is still reeling under the excitement of marital bliss. Interestingly, it was on Valentine’s Day that Sachiin popped the question to Urvashi. The excited bride tells us, “I called and asked about his plans on V-Day. He said that a cozy dinner would do. In fact, he even said he was busy and unsure of making it for dinner.”
Urvashi says they finally made it to a restaurant for dinner, when out of the blue, in typical filmi style, Sachiin got down on his knees and fished out a huge diamond ring and proposed marriage. “Imagine my shock! He was pretending the entire time. It was the best day of my life and I will never forget this year’s Valentine’s Day,” says Urvashi.
Sachiin adds, “She thought it would be a usual date. She was zapped at the proposal. It was an emotional moment.”
Sachiin and Urvashi first met through common friends at a party. Reveals Sachiin, “We soon began going out. One day, I asked her if she was serious about a relationship with me. It’s been over two years since we’ve been together, so marriage was the obvious next step.”
Urvashi says Sachiin has always made her feel secure. “I used to long to be with him. He is sensitive too. That is one quality I really love about him,” she says. As for Sachiin, it was Urvashi’s innocent and straightforward nature that swept him off his feet. “I like her honesty. Urvashi is very transparent, very caring and very giving. It is these qualities that make her beautiful in my eyes.”
Come March 2, and Sachiin and Urvashi are set to have a grand wedding celebration. “You could call it a party or a reception. Besides family and friends, we have invited our well-wishers too. We want everyone to be a part of our joy.”
