Neil Nitin Mukesh gets engaged to Rukmini Sahay

Bollywood actor Neil Nitin Mukesh got engaged to Mumbai-based Rukmini Sahay in a hush-hush ceremony attended by close friends and family. The ceremony took place at a Juhu hotel on the occasion of Dussehra on Tuesday, October 11. The wedding is set for early next year.  

Rukmini works in the aviation industry. Both Neil and Rukmini’s families have known each other for years and it is an arranged marriage. The duo courted for a month before deciding to take the relationship to the next level.

For the engagement ceremony, Neil sported a black sherwani with a red jacket and beige stole, while his bride-to-be flaunted a traditional look in a pink and blue heavily embellished lehenga. A simple gajra enhanced her look. The couple looked excited on their special day, in some photographs that surfaced on internet.

Neil is the grandson of legendary singer late Mukesh and son of singer Nitin. In a statement, the ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ actor’s father said, “Neil is quite old school in his ways and is a firm believer in the traditional school of thought when it comes to the sacred institution of marriage. He left the decision of finding his soulmate in his parents’ trusted hands and there couldn’t have been a better match for him than Rukmini.”

Nitin added that Rukmini reflects the values and traditions that Neil has been raised with and compliments him in every way possible. She has won the hearts of the family and everyone is “ecstatic” that Neil will finally settle down.

Neil is known for his work in films like ‘Johnny Gaddaar’, ‘New York’, ‘Jail’, ‘Players’, ‘David’ and ‘Wazir’ among a few more.
