MUMBAI: Abhishek Sharma, who played Hritik Roshan's younger brother Amit in his debut film Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, is now a TV actor and has been part of shows like Sasural Simar Ka and Yaro Ka Tashan. Abhishek featured in Miley Jab Hum Tum and entertained the audience with his web series Date Gone Wrong 2. He is all set to tie the knot with actress Kanan Sharma. The couple had an intimate ceremony in February and are looking forward to taking the plunge this year. Here is a peek at their story.
How they met
I knew Kanan’s sister-in-law and actress Malini Kapoor. I worked with her in Yaro Da Tashan and I knew her husband (Kanan’s brother). But I never met Kanan during the course of the show. So before lockdown, we happened to meet during an audition. And then a lockdown was announced. We were in touch as we were working on something together for a digital platform.
While talking and interacting, our love blossomed organically. We were eagerly waiting for the lockdown to lift so that we could meet each other. I knew Ajay and Malini but I didn’t tell them about being friends with Kanan. So once the lockdown lifted, we met and after a few meetings we started dating. Both our families didn’t know about us for a long time.
Telling the parents
Kanan posted about me on my birthday and that’s when everyone got to know about us. I was supposed to go to Jaipur to meet her parents and three days before, they asked me if I would like to take things ahead. Her father initiated it and arranged for a roka ceremony. Kanan and I didn’t even didn’t discuss. It felt like Shark Tank. We just looked at each other and it was like, ‘Chalo kar lo.’ It was a beautiful event. Her family arranged everything. My family couldn’t attend.
We haven’t decided on the D-date yet. My sister is abroad. The roka just happened. We want the wedding to be attended by all. We’ll decide on a date this year. Abhi roka ke baad kya bacha hai. Kanan is my best friend. We share everything. I share less because I forget things.
Kanan was seen in a dating reality show on the digital platform, which was hosted by Raghu Ram and Rajiv Lakshman.
