Ever since Anas Rashid, the lead actor of the show, Diya Aur Baati Hum, announced the news of his marriage, fans have been curious to know more about his to-be wife, Hina. In an interview, Anas revealed that his fiancee, Chandigarh-girl, is 14 years younger to him. The 38-year-old Anas, who shared this picture of Hina with Hindustan Times, says that right now the family has planned to have a small ring ceremony and the wedding is most likely to take place by the end of this year.
When asked about why he didn’t choose a girl from the (television) industry, Anas said that he always wanted to get married to the girl of his family’s choice. “Everything happened very quickly. I’m working in this industry; aur agar bahu bhi kaam karegi, toh ghar pe kaun rahega? (And even if my wife works here, who will be at home?) For my family, the fact that I’m working in this industry is enough,” he told us in an earlier interview.
In fact, Anas hadn’t even seen Hina’s photo before he agreed to marry her. His mother had informed him about Hina and her family and that was enough for him to say yes. The actor says that they are still getting to know each other, which is why, he doesn’t want to rush for the wedding.
Anas was rumoured to be in a relationship with actor Rati Pandey, and the two parted ways in February, last year.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Anas hadn’t taken up any new show post Diya Aur Baati Hum (the show ended in September last year), as he wanted to concentrate on settling down in his personal life.
