Popular TV Actor Manish Naggdev, known for his stint in Popular shows like ‘Udaan’, got engaged to Actress turned Air Hostess Malika Juneja on 25th July in Pune, at Malika’s residence. Manish earlier dated Ex Bigg Boss contestant Srishty Rode.
Manish confirmed the news to a leading daily and revealed that the couple will tie the knot after the pandemic. “I first met Malika in August last year, through some common friends. Gradually, my mother grew fond of her and one day, she told me that Malika would make a great life partner. With time, I, too, realised that she was extremely loving and caring. So, I told my mother to speak with her family. Fortunately, they were fond of me (laughs!). So, here we are. I would call it a love-cum-arranged marriage. We started dating in January. Engagement aur shaadi pandemic ke baad hoga.”, He told TOI.
Naggdev was earlier dating TV Actress Srishty Rode and was engaged to her, but the couple parted ways after a 4-year long relationship. It was reported that Srishty ended their relationship in 2018, soon after her stint in ‘Bigg Boss 12’. But failure in that relationship haven’t disillusioned him about love.
“Look, I have realised that no one loves anybody unconditionally. Today, love, for me, means respecting and valuing the person in your life. Obviously, I was bitter in the beginning, as I hadn’t got closure. I would get anxiety and panic attacks, and had trouble sleeping. Unable to take it anymore, I finally bared my heart and soul on social media. That helped get a huge weight lifted off my chest,” He concluded.
Here’s congratulating both Manish and Malika !
