An elated Vikas said, “Our parents met and we did the roka ceremony at my residence in Delhi. My parents and Gunjan’s parents are aware of the kind of comfort and love we share, and they suggested that we get engaged now.”
The couple will tie the knot early next year.
Vikas Manaktala who was last seen in the show Main Naa Bhoolungi, is passionate about Wing Chun, a Chinese form of martial arts.
The actor, who has been trying to master the art for the past five years, is hoping to get his professional degree in it soon. Vikas said, “Wing Chun was also practised by the great Bruce Lee. I get up at 5.30 in the morning to pursue this form of martial art. Due to work pressures I could not get a degree in it earlier, hopefully I will get it soon. The most important lesson the art has taught me is to respect my body and be more focussed in life.”
But now that they have known each other for a-year-and-a-half, Vikas says he has found his soul mate in Gunjan. “I first met her fleetingly at an event management company a year ago. But at that time, nothing happened. Then one day, I bumped into her at Lokhandwala market and we exchanged numbers. But for a long time, we were just friends. There were no ulterior motives to go beyond or date each other. As time passed, I realised that there was certain positivity about her. Slowly, we discovered that we had common interests and became good friends. For a long time, we remained like that. Then, I realised that I was attracted to many of her qualities. Also, we were both spiritually inclined. Gunjan is caring, considerate and very sorted. Gradually, we fell in love.”
