Ashmit Patel


Being together for more than a decade, finally actor Ashmit Patel and actress Maheck Chahal got engaged. It was during a recent holiday in Europe that the couple got engaged. The engagement was a surprise for Maheck.

In a leading Indian daily, an elated Ashmit shared, “I never told Maheck that I was carrying a ring with me. We were supposed to meet her family in Norway and I wanted to propose to her in Paris, the city of love, but it did not happen that way. We were at a cozy restaurant in Marbella (Spain), which had a fantastic view, and I decided to propose.”

Adding further about the funny and romantic proposal he said,” Maheck has a habit of having dessert after dinner, and I had decided to propose then. However, on that night, she did not ask for any dessert. So, I excused myself and asked the waiters to get some strawberries dipped in chocolate. I then placed the ring on the plate with strawberries, under a bowl which was placed upside.”

On finding the ring underneath the bowl, Maheck said, “I was so surprised, that I laughed out loud. Since we were not sure which finger — right or left — the ring should be worn on, we paused for a while. He then went down on his knees and the entire restaurant cheered for us. It was a very romantic proposal.”

When asked about their wedding, Ashmit said, “We are meeting my parents today and will finalise a date soon. Hopefully, we should be married in six months. I want a destination wedding abroad, while Maheck prefers to get hitched in India.”

Being happy to share life with Ashmit whom Maheck believes to be a reflection of her, Maheck said, “I can be myself with him. He is more mature than me, so he understands situations better. The fact that we’ll soon be married is sinking in, slowly.”

“She has brought a lot of positivity to my life. Though I have been with her for a long time, it just feels like yesterday,” added Ashmit.
