After Harbhajan Singh- Geeta Basra, Yuvraj Singh – Hazel Keech, now Zaheer Khan and Chak De actress Sagarika Ghatge are next in line to get hitched. The two made headlines with their dating rumors and soon got engaged. Now that their wedding date is nearing, the couple revealed some of the cutest moments of each other. From how they met to how they convinced their parents for the same, Sagarika and Zaheer told it all to the media. Sagarika also shared of the stresses that come along with weddings.
Sagarika Ghatge, known for her role as a hockey player who was dating a cricketer in Chak De! India, will soon be getting married to Indian cricket Zaheer Khan in real life. The actress finds an irony in the whole plot, and says planning a wedding is exciting but stressful too.
“Like everybody who is getting married, I think there is always stress, yet there is a lot of excitement because it’s a wedding that you are planning. So, we have all those emotions going on right now,” said Sagarika.
Interestingly, in Chak De! India, Sagarika’s character was engaged to a cricketer. Of the connection with the role, she said, “When I think of it, there is an irony in that, but it’s definitely not planned. I don’t know how to look back at it, but we can definitely call it ironic,” adding that now, people connect the film to her personal life. “More than me, a lot of people think of it like, ‘Oh my God, she is actually marrying a cricketer because she dated a cricketer’. But that was a movie, this is my real life. So, I don’t know how I can associate both,” Sagarika told IANS.
Sagarika says it is very important that she believes in the project before she takes it up. “I think every project that I have done has always helped me grow as an actor. So, that’s why I chose a Marathi film after a film like Chak De. because I knew doing that Marathi film would help me grow as an actor because I got to work with somebody like Atul Kulkarni, who I respect a lot in terms of the kind of body of work that he has done. So, I choose my projects in whichever way it helps me bring out something new in me. So, maybe that has made me do selective films, but I hope to do a lot more films now.”
At the moment, she has a bilingual film called Haadsa in her kitty. “It will be releasing early next year. That’s pretty much it,” she said.
The actor got engaged to Zaheer in April. There are reports that they will get married in November, and will hold a reception on November 27.
