Finally, the Fukrey actor Pulkit Samrat is ready to tie the knot with his fiancée of many years, Shweta Rohira.
Shweta is Salman Khan’s rakhi sister and that is the reason why the superstar has been throwing his weight behind Pulkit and promoting him since his debut in Bittoo Boss. Pulkit’s last release O Teri was produced by Salman’s brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. Incidentally, Pulkit already calls Salman his ‘brother-in-law’.
We hear that Pulkit and Shweta have planned a wedding in Goa in November this year. The Khan family has been kept in loop, and Atul Agnihotri is already said to be coordinating things on Pulkit’s behalf. The couple will reportedly also host a two-day celebration in a south Goa hotel.
Pulkit Samrat, a Delhi boy, first made his mark on the TV show Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. It was in those days that Shweta, a trainee journalist then, met him to do an interview. The acquaintance turned into friendship and friendship into love. The two eventually got engaged and Pulkit has actually been calling Shweta “Mrs. Samrat” all these years.
Well, she’s officially going to be “Mrs. Samrat” this November.
INTERSTING TITBIT: How did Shweta become Salman Khan’s rakhi sister?
Shweta is a Sindhi girl from Mumbai and as a kid was a great admirer of Salman Khan. One day she gatecrashed Salman’s residence and requested his mother Salma to let her tie a rakhi to Salman. Salman was called and agreed to Shweta’s offer on one condition: she would have to tie him rakhi throughout life. Shweta readily agreed. She has been the superstar’s rakhi sister since then.
