Aamir Ali and Sanjeeda Shaikh
are all set to get married in March 2012. When asked about marriage
plans, Aamir says, "It's true. When Sanjee and I started dating six
years ago, we knew we were destined to get married. It was just a matter
of time. Today, we're ready to take the plunge together."
Aamir adds that his proposal left Sanjeeda speechless. Describing the
moment, he says, "I asked Sanjeeda to marry me in November. I bought her
a customised diamond engagement ring - which took me a month to decide
on! - and took her out for a romantic dinner date. I finally proposed
after dinner by going down on one knee, and Sanjee didn't know how to
react. There were 10 expressions on her face - ranging from surprise,
incredulity and joy! When she finally accepted the ring, the moment was
so intense that both of us had tears in our eyes."
wedding has been confirmed for March 2012, the exact date is still being
finalised. The couple plans on going the whole hog with the wedding,
ensuring a grand sangeet and mehndi ceremony. "I want it to be a
fairytale wedding for Sanjeeda, as we have waited a long time for it,"
For her part, Sanjeeda says she doesn't have words
to express how she's feeling currently. "It's so special... it's amazing
that our relationship is culminating in marriage now. I wasn't
expecting a proposal that night, and in such a romantic manner! I was
rehearsing for my show when he called and told me get dressed for
dinner. When he went down on his knee at the restaurant and proposed,
that was THE moment of my life! My parents are extremely happy. They've
been waiting for this day. Initially we were thinking of a simple
wedding, but then Aamir said we're only getting married once so we
should have our very own fairytale wedding!"
