Anas Rashid of ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ reveals marriage plans

Television actor Anas Rashid aka Sooraj Rathi of popular soap ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ seems to be ready to tie the knot and settle down with a girl of his family’s choice. Recently, there were rumours that the actor got engaged when he went to his hometown Malerkotla, Punjab, to celebrate Eid.

When Anas was asked about it, the actor refuted the rumours of him getting engaged, but revealed that he will get married after his show ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ is over.

"Every time I go to my hometown, this rumour starts. Yes, it's true that my parents are keen on finding a girl for me and dinner table conversations are only about my marriage these days," Anas told The Times of India. "I am not really sure when my show is going off air, but I will tie the knot soon after it gets over," he added.

Earlier, Anas was rumoured to be in a long-term relationship with Rati Pandey of ‘Hitler Didi’ fame, but the couple allegedly broke-up in February this year following disagreements over marriage. However, the duo never admitted to their relationship and always maintained that they were just friends. In fact, Anas had even mentioned that he will never marry an actress.

Meanwhile, ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’, which was supposed to go off air in August, has been extended and will now go off air in September. But the show will reportedly, return with a second instalment, but Anas and leading lady Deepika Singh, who plays Sooraj’s wife and IPS officer Sandhya Rathi, will no longer be a part of season two of the show.
