On 5 June 2021 TV actor Ankit Gera Secretly tied the knot with Rashi Puri in Chandigarh in the present with their family and friends. Rashi Puri is an NRI from Nigeria. In an interview with ETimes TV, Ankit Gera spoke about his secret marriage. He said, “It’s an arranged marriage. We are family friends. Our parents were looking for suitable partners for us and that’s when they suggested that we should talk. We started talking in April and soon developed a liking for each other. She flew down to India around three weeks ago before the wedding to meet me. Even though it was a short span, we got to know each other better and decided to take the plunge”.
He added, “We are poles apart in every aspect. Rashi had no clue about my work as an actor. She liked me for who I was as a person and not for my profession. That’s what made me fall in love with her”.
This wedding happened in a low-key ceremony with only 10 people in attendance. Ankit Gera was never in favour of a lavish wedding. He says, “Our families had zeroed in on a date in December as they wanted us to get married as soon as possible. Kab Covid jaayega, kab sab normal hoga. I will be turning 34 in September and it’s an ideal age to settle down. So, I decided to have a lockdown wedding, which was attended by people who matter to us”.
Gera was often been in the news for his personal life, He said, “Everybody has a past. It’s very easy to judge the other person. Rashi doesn’t care about the past. She believes in living in the present.”
