Asha and I want to get married, but not anytime soon: Rithvikhttp://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/hindi/tv/news-interviews/Asha-and-I-want-to-get-married-but-not-anytime-soon-Rithvik/articleshow/29806415.cms
Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi, winners of Nach Baliye 6, spoke to LT after winning the reality show. Just four months into their relationship, the popular pair from Pavitra Rishta say they are contemplating marriage, but not yet.
A lot of TV stars are said to fake relationships to participate in reality shows like Nach Baliye. There were similar rumours for you two too...
Rithvik: I know what a reality show can do for you. Reality shows are a big support for an actor. And at this time, a reality show Asha ki zaroorat thi. I have already done Jhalak Dikhla Ja, but Asha didn't want to do a show alone. Even when Jhalak season 6 came, I told her I am recommending her name for it. But madam ko lagta tha ki woh yeh nahi kar payengi. This was when we were only friends. And when we became a couple and this show was offered to us, Asha refused it again. I accepted it and forced her to do it, for her good. But there was no question of faking our relationship.
Asha: In fact, we are so scared of our parents that declaring our love for each other on a reality show was a very big step for us. I think why we accepted this show was because Rithvik wanted people to know me as Asha Negi, and not just as Purvi from Pavitra Rishta. My parents knew about Rithvik, but we come from a middle class family. It is not normal for a girl from such a background to announce her relationship on national television.
How are you feeling after the win?
Rithvik: The feeling has not sunk in yet. I am still waiting for the rehearsal call to come. But I am sure it will sink in. When it does, we are gonna be like 'OMG! We are the winners of Nach Baliye season 6'.
Asha: Oh my God! I don't even know what to say at this moment. Somewhere we knew we could win. Bahut achhi performances di hain. We are so excited. Haan, dil mein tha aisa ki hum jeet sakte hain but overconfident nahi thay. Aisi feeling nahi thi ki hum hi jeetenge.
How are you planning to spend the prize money?
Asha: We are gonna buy a home with the prize money. Rithvik is buying a home for his mom.
What plans for the future?
Rithvik: We want to get married, but not anytime soon. Right now we are only 23 and 24. Who wants to get married at 24? I don't! We have known each other for a year only.
Asha: I am not ready for marriage. I am too young for it. It isn't that I don't want to get married to him, definitely, I want to. He will be my life partner, for agle saat janam tak. But thankfully, there is no pressure just now from our parents, which we were earlier thinking ki hoga.
TOI :We plan to go on a holiday soon: Rithvik - Asha http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/hindi/tv/news-interviews/We-plan-to-go-on-a-holiday-soon-Rithvik--Asha/articleshow/29771566.cmsSmall screen stars Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi came in limelight with Pavitra Rishta, became friends on the sets and have been dating for sometime.

Now, I can say I'm hands on with few dancing styles.Which couple was a tough competition for you

: Oh my God! I don't even know what to say at this moment. Somewhere we knew we could win. Bahut achhi performances di hain
. We are so excited. Haan, dil mein tha aisa ki hum jeet sakte hain but overconfident nahi thay. Aisi feeling nahi thi ki hum hi jeetenge. Rithvik

: During our journey in Nach we spent 3-4 months together. We have understood each other emotionally now. Aise time par yeh khush ho sakta hai aur aise time par isse gussa aa sakta hai. Yeh teen mahine mein humne ek doosre ko itna jaan liya hai jitna log teen janmon mein nahi jaan paate hain.Rithvik

At least three or four years more. We are 23 and 24 and too young to get married.On the decision to participate in a dance reality showAsha:
It was Rithvik's decision to participate. I was super nervous. Rithvik is a superb dancer, and I am a complete non-dancer. Mujhe yeh tha ki main iski beizatti na kara doon. Mujhe apne par bharosa nahi tha.
Rithvik had great faith in me and he convinced me.Rithvik:
I wanted everyone to know what Asha in real life is. Asha has never participated in a reality show. I thought it would be quite helpful for her career.On the initial apprehensions
There were apprehensions. Our relationship was new and fresh and I didn't want to jinx it. But this opportunity for Asha has worked really well for her career. Nobody knew about our relationship and even our parents weren't aware. But now they are cool about it. When we told them that we are dating, they were like "OK, nice". We were very surprised by their reaction.On their journeyAsha
: Initially when we started the journey, Rithvik was quite energetic and I was dheeli
. Even Terence Lewis (one of the judges) called me very dheeli
. But we both worked hard on it. Rithvik had to tone down his energy because we were dancing as a couple. Kahin na kahin usse bhi manage karna padha.
I also did a lot of hard work to improve myself.Rithvik:
It was very difficult for Asha to cope with two shows. I am a workaholic and can do four things at a time. However, this period of torture was completely worth it.On making their relationship publicAsha
: We were dating but we didn't want people to know about it. Only our close friends knew. We didn't want people to say "They are a part of a TV show and they are dating. They are just another couple." We wanted it to be very subtle. When this offer came, we were confused. We thought that everyone, including our parents, would get to know. But now it's all cool and our parents are quite happy for the both of us.On getting injured during the showAsha
: It was very stressful for me. Rithvik wanted the trophy, so we never thought of quitting the show. Rithvik was scared when I got hurt and we both had to get stitches. Us samay toh ho gaya tha ki ab toh paseene ke saath khoon bhi baha diya toh
we have to win.On her career plansAsha
: Now I love dancing. I would like to even give anchoring a try.On getting to know AshaRithvik
: She's such a kid, who is very lazy when it comes to doing hard work. She gets cranky when she doesn't get enough sleep. We got to see so much of each other that we can be together with each other for the rest of our lives.
