“The Way Neeti & I Met And fell In Love Is Full-On Filmy,” Says Nihar Pandya

Actor Nihar Pandya , to be seen  very shortly in the historical  Manikarnika, is  all set to   tie the  knot with  singer Neeti Mohan. 

Speaking on  the whirlwind courtship romance and wedding for  the  first time  Nihar says,  “Yes after some relationships that  simply didn’t work out, I am finally getting married,  to Neeti Mohan on 14 and 15 Febuary. In fact I speak to you from a  pre-wedding pooja at Neeti’s place. The pre-wedding rituals will be on 14 Feb and the actually wedding  on 15 Feb.”

Nihar says he still can’t believe he has  finally found the love of his life. “As you know  I’ve been in some aborted  relationships. In  fact it had come to a  point where I wouldn’t share my relationship status with my family because I was scared  it wouldn’t work out. Every time my mother would run to the temple  with  a pooja ki thali to ring the auspicious  bells for her son’s wedding. Then  nothing happened.”

So Nihar chose not to reveal his feelings  for Neeti Mohan to his  family.  “Not until we were sure of our marriage.There  had been so many deadends earlier I felt my family stop believing I was  actually in love .”

Just how Nihar met and fell  in  love with Neeti is a chapter straight of a Yash Raj  Film.

Chuckles the  groom-to-be, “Yes, fully filmy it was. I met Neeti at a common friend (musician)Jimmy Felix’s wedding.   Jimmy and Neeti used  to be part of  the music band Aasma and he  kept talking about this  girl he wants me to meet. But he  wouldn’t actually get down to introducing me  to Neeti. I finally asked Jimmy,  ‘Yaar tu mileyega  ya sirf baatein banayega?’  He promised  to introduce  us at his wedding. And he kept his promise.”

It was love at first sight  for Nihar.  “It took me  no time at  all  to  decide Neeti was  the  one I wanted  to  spend  the rest of my life with. Luckily she felt the same way.We decided to get married soon after  we met.And now, as the day approaches  I am  more and  more convinced this is the best  thing  to have happened to me.”

 Nihar will soon be seen in a  major role in the controversial historical Manikarnika.  “My acting debut has taken  its time. And  it also took me  a long time to find  the woman I  love. I am a late bloomer.”

He has  only good wishes for Deepika Padukone. “She is  happily married and there is no bitterness in my heart  . In time  all that one  remembers is  the good things .I wish her  all the best in her married  life.And I am sure she  misses  the same  for me. I  only wish the headlines announcing my wedding wouldn’t refer to me  as ‘Deepika Padukone’s Ex’ . I’d like to think  I have an  identity of  my own.”
