Remember Jagya from Balika Vadhu, the TV show that covered the topic of child marriage in an extremely melodramatic way? Well, that young boy, Avinash Mukherjee is 21-years-old now and runs a digital marketing agency called AM Media. In a recent interview, the actor had some great news to share! He revealed that he is engaged to actress and Tiara Miss India winner, Saloni Luthra and the two, who can't stop gushing over each other have actually been dating for a year-and-a-half!
Avinash told a newspaper that he met Saloni through Instagram and the two fell in love. "I had messaged her on Instagram as I wanted someone to create written content for my company. We knew each other since college and I knew that she writes well," Avinash said.
Saloni gave a few recommendations for content writers but, Avinash insisted on working with her. "I recommended him a few more names for content writing, but he said he just wanted me... Well soon, we realised with time that we were meant to happen and gradually fell in love, deep in love," Saloni revealed.
Avinash also revealed that his mother and Saloni get along quite well, "My mother understood what was brewing between us and they bonded well." They say timing is important in love, and Avinash took it quite seriously! "I proposed to her at 4 am. So, actually, that time is known as the BrahmaMuhurta when Lord Brahma wakes up and I thought that was auspicious to propose to her. And guess what It was an instant Yes from her side too. So, it all worked for me," he said.
Can you believe that Saloni had no idea that Avinash was popular? "I was dumbfounded and quite embarrassed when she said she knew nothing about Jagya and Balika Vadhu. I was expecting her to know at least something about me and my work," said the actor.
The two went on to share what they love the most about each other and Saloni was quick to say that she loves how old school Avinash is, "Avi is absolutely old school and that is what I love about him, despite being in the modern era, his thoughts are rooted and he is very clear on his thoughts." Avinash, on the other hand, said, "But I am in love with her eyes."
This couple looks awwdorable together! Here's hoping we hear the wedding bells soon.
