‘Tangaballi’ aka Nikitin Dheer to marry Kratika Sengar
‘Tangaballi’, the popular character of ‘Chennai Express’ is all set to marry TV actress Kratika Sengar on September 3. Nikitin is currently taking part in ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 5’. The groom’s father Pankaj Dheer is behind the nuptial.
Says Nikitin, "I am not in the frame of mind to go out
looking for a girl. I trust my father's choice and my intuition. Kratika is
homely, yet independent. We must have met 10-12 times before the decision was
made." The couple first met in January this year, when Kratika auditioned
for a short film directed by Pankaj. The senior actor developed a special
fondness for her and told her that he would want her to become his
daughter-in-law. Kratika says she realised she was in love when Nikitin
recently went abroad and she couldn't reach him over the phone. "I was
worried and that's when I realised that I was in love with him," says she.
"It's because of his family that we came together. My father is happy to see the bond I share with my would-be father-in-law," adds the actress.
6'4" tall Nikitin can make it difficult for any girl to match his height. Says Kratika, "I am 5'5" and have never worn heels. My male friends are not that tall and I used to tease them saying I cannot wear heels when I'm with them. Now, destiny has brought me together with somebody who is very tall. But Nikitin knows I have a back problem and insists that I continue wearing flats."
Kratika, an well-known face in television who played lead role in shows like ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’ and ‘Punar Vivah’, has been dating film actor Nikitin Dheer of ‘Jodha-Akbar’ and ‘Chennai Express’ fame for few months.
Kratika refuses to divulge any details about the wedding. If on one hand, Nikitin geared up for Colors’s show ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 5 then his would-be-better-half Kratika is gearing up for the release of her debut film ‘My Father Godfather’, directed by Pankaj Dheer.
