Former Bigg Boss participants and Power Couple Ashmit Patel and Maheck Chahal have known each other for over 12 years as friends
Bollywood actor Ashmit Patel surprised Maheck Chahal, his girlfriend of more than 10 years, by popping the question during their recent European vacation.
Both Ashmit Patel and Mahek Chahal shared the same picture on their Instagram profiles, but with different and adorable captions. While Ashmit wrote, “She said YES!!! @maheckchahal #downonmyknee #engagement #ring #butwhichfinger #partnerforlife #bae #yesididit #aboutlastweek,” Maheck captioned it as, “He stole my heart, so I’m going to steal his last name. I said YES! @ashmitpatel ❤❤❤#engaged #love #isaidyes #marbella #happiness #ring #romance #suprise #ashma.”
In an interview to Bombay Times, Ashmit Patel said, “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.”
While talking about the proposal, Ashmit Patel told the newspaper, “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.”
Mahek shared “It was a surprise for me and I was left speechless at the moment. We were holidaying and he was carrying the ring all this while secretly. He arranged for a romantic surprise and blew me away completely. It was a beautiful moment, and even though it’s yet to completely sink in, we both are enjoying the phase. From friends to girlfriend-boyfriend and now fiance, our relationship has grown and I am so proud of that.”
Ashmit also added that the couple will marry in another six months; and while he wants it to be a destination wedding abroad, Maheck wants to get married in India.
Ashmit and Maheck have been former Bigg Boss contestants. While Ashmit was a part of the show in its fourth season, and was linked to Veena Malik, Maheck made it inside the house in its fifth season. The two began seeing each other after their Bigg Boss stints, and later participated together in Power Couple. While Mahek was last seen in TV show Kavach… Kaali Shaktiyon Se, Ashmit made an appearance in Salman Khan film Jai Ho.
