Niti Taylor and Parikshit Bawa’s lesser-known love story became public after the childhood sweethearts got engaged in a lavish ceremony on Tuesday (August 13). Interestingly, the Ishqbaaz actress and the Indian Army Captain, who started dating only a few months ago, first met each other in school. At that time, they were good friends.
It was only when Niti and Parikshit re-connected on Instagram that the two realised they share a lot of common qualities and fell in love.
“I knew Parikshit from school and back then, we were good friends. A few months ago, we reconnected on Instagram. When I started to know him better, I realised that he is a gem of a person. I met him in Delhi. My parents met him too, and they also liked him a lot. The best part about having Parikshit in my life is that we share the same qualities,” Niti said in an interview with Bombay Times.
Niti, who last played the role of Mannat in Ishqbaaz, however, isn’t planning to tie the knot immediately.
“We don’t plan to get married this year. Hopefully, it should happen next year. My fiancé’s job takes him to different places, while I am currently based in Mumbai,” said Niti.
