Never been more sure of anything like this: Aashka on marriage
Aashka Goradia is set to marry her American beau Brent Goble this winter and the TV actress says they may have had a short courtship period but she is sure about settling down with him. Aashka met Brent, a weapons instructor, at a Calvin Harris concert in the US, and the two hit it off immediately. They got engaged in a hush-hush ceremony in December last year.
"My family knew about Brent popping a question before I did, my parents believe that Brent is a blessing. On learning about us the first time, my father completely supported me. We are tying a knot this winter and I have never been more sure of anything like this," said Aashka.
The two are currently being seen on dance reality show 'Nach Baliye'. The actress says it is a big challenge to perform a new dance form every week but with a partner like Brent, who is a "better dancer", things become a little easy. When asked about her reason to participate on the show, she said, "The way our story has shaped up over the course of last year, our relationship is one big joyous adventure.”
Glad to have got a break from work: Manasi
Manasi Joshi Roy has made her TV comeback with 'Dhai Kilo Prem' after a decade and the actress says she is glad to have had that break as she got to spend a lot of time with her daughter.
"I'm making a comeback after ten years which is happening by default. I hadn't planned on taking a 10-year break from facing the screen. I was, however, working behind the scenes as my husband and I started a production house in 2006," said Manasi.
"And we were producing a lot of non-fiction shows and movies together. Even though the break happened by default I am glad it happened as I was able to be a full-time and hands-on mom to my daughter Kiara during her growing years," she said.
Manasi says she may have started working again but Kiara will always be her topmost priority as she and her husband, Rohit Roy cannot compromise when it comes to their daughter. "Kiara is and has always been our number one priority. I have her calendar marked out, and Rohit and I plan our stuff around it as much as possible,” she said.
