Sushmita Sen’s brother Rajeev Sen marries actress Charu Asopa


In a court marriage, former beauty queen and actress Sushmita Sen’s brother Rajeev Sen tied the knot with television actress Charu Asopa.

The newly married couple shared picture of their court marriage on their social media handle. The groom was dressed in a white kurta pyjama while Charu donned a bright red saree and they looked awesome together.

Rajeev captioned the post, “I Rajeev Sen take Charu Asopa as my lawful Wife”, whereas Charu wrote, “I Charu Asopa take Rajeev Sen as my lawful husband.” The couple added the emoticons of heart, evil eye & lock.. 

Charu and Rajeev will get married in a traditional ceremony on June 16, 2019. Charu had earlier confirmed her wedding date during an interview with the Bombay Times. She had stated, "It will be an intimate affair with just 20-25 people each from our respective families in attendance. Our families had originally zeroed in on a date in December, but Rajeev, during a conversation with me, said that it’s too far. That’s how we advanced the date to June 16. Forget others, even our families were surprised to learn about our decision. We will have a reception in Mumbai depending on the availability of our families and friends."

She also revealed about her wedding plans, and had shared, "I have always dreamt of having a white wedding. So, we plan to have a Christian-themed engagement and I will wear a white gown for it. The idea is to start with white — the colour stands for peace and purity — and then add colours to our functions and costumes, with us in red on our wedding day. We will be colour-coordinated for all our functions. While the pheras will happen according to Rajasthani and Bengali rituals, the theme for the wedding will be royal Rajasthani. I am in a shopping mode now. I haven’t taken up any new project, as I want to spend time with Rajeev after marriage."

Charu shared a great equation with Rajeev's sister, Sushmita, and had revealed, "You won’t believe that I impersonated Sushmita Sen, when she was crowned Miss Universe, at a fancy dress competition in my school. I was very young then. I showed her the picture and she said that I looked adorable in it (smiles). Imagine the stroke of luck, she will be my sister-in-law soon. She told us to never sleep over a fight, and resolve our differences without any delay. Of course, like any other couple, Rajeev and I, too, have our share of fights, but we also resolve it in no time. He is very mature. We respect each other and we are good friends before anything else. Sushmita didi told me that jab aap bohot comfortable ho jaate ho kisi ke saath then you should know that he is the right guy for you. In my case, it’s Rajeev, because we are extremely comfortable with each other."

Here's wishing Rajeev and Charu a happy married life!
