Mumbai: Actor politician Raj Babbar’s younger son Prateik has been struck by the cupid. The 31-year-old actor has got engaged to girlfriend Sanya Sagar on the auspicious occasion of Basant Panchami in Lucknow on Monday.
Sagar, who is a writer-director-editor, has known Prateik for over eight years but she started dating him after returning from London last year in January.
During an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Prateik while talking about his engagement said, “Sanya and I, along with our families, decided that something as pure as love should be solemnised on an auspicious day and what better day than Basant Panchami. She’s the best partner I could have asked for. It didn’t take me long to figure out that she was the one for me. I know it sounds clichéd, but I can’t stop counting my blessings and thanking God for all the good that is happening in my life.”
Prateik took to his Instagram page to share an adorable pic to announce his engagement.
However, Prateik and Sanya haven’t yet decided the wedding date. In fact he wants to enjoy the courtship period and opt for a temple or a beach wedding a year or two later.
“We haven’t thought about the wedding yet, but if I had my way, I would love a beach wedding or a simple temple wedding,” Prateik said.
The actor who was launched by Aamir Khan in his home production Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na in 2008, is quite prepared to get married.
Talking about his respect for the institution of marriage, Prateik said, “I’ve been mentally ready for marriage for a while now as I believe it gives a relationship substance. Nothing will change, life will only get even more beautiful.”
Here’s wishing Prateik and Sanya hearty congratulations for their engagement.
