Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh got engaged to Rukmini Sahay in Juhu on Tuesday. The ceremony was attended by close family and friends of both the sides. It is an arranged match and the wedding is slated for 2017.
The roka ceremony took place at a five-star hotel in Juhu. Talking about his daughter-in-law to be, Neil’s father Nitin Mukesh says the family is “ecstatic” that Neil will finally settle down. “Neil is quite old school in his ways and is a firm believer in the traditional school of thought when it comes to the sacred institution of marriage. He left the decision of finding his soulmate in his parents’ trusted hands and there couldn’t have been a better match for him than Rukmini,” Nitin Mukesh said in a statement.
Rukmini is Mumbai-based and both the families know each other well. Nitin Mukesh added that Rukmini had “already won the hearts” of the Mukesh family “with her simplicity and upbringing”.
“She reflects the values and traditions that Neil has been raised with and compliments him in every way possible. The celebrations to the final countdown have already begun.”
