After a grand engagement, Mahhi Vij had a quiet wedding. Here she talks to Roshni K Olivera about life as Mrs Jay Bhanushali
BOMBAY TIMES (February 25, 2012)
Mahhi Vij, best known as Nakusha from Laagi Tujhse Lagan, had been dating actor Jay Bhanushali for a long time. There were talks of the two being secretly married too. But then they had a lavish engagement ceremony last year putting to rest all rumours. And just when everyone was wondering about their wedding date, we got to know that Mahhi and Jay had tied the knot. So when did it happen? And why was it so low-key, we ask the petite actress. Excerpts from the interview…
So Jay and you are married? Yes, we are.
When did you tie the knot? And why such a low-key wedding after a grand engagement? We got married this year, and it was a court marriage with just our family present. I had a big engagement ceremony and I got my chance to wear a lovely ghagra and jewellery. After working continuously for two years, I have just lost all patience and I didn’t have any patience to go through a reception! So we decided to keep it low-key.
Jay was okay with it? Yes, he listens to me (smiles).
Is it the same even now after marriage? Yes it is. He is a good husband.
And what about you? I give myself 100/100 as a wife. Now that I’m at home, I have been taking good care of him… his food, his gym routine etc.
On the work front, are you hoping to get back soon? Sure, if I get a good show. Though I doubt if anything can beat More >
Paresh Rawal is ready with his TV serial, Lagi Tujhse Lagan, which is inspired by a real-life incident. It is the story of a good-looking girl Nakusha, whose mother makes her look ugly to shield her from unwanted attention from men. In the process the girl gets ill-treated by everyone because she is dark and ugly.
Paresh had witnessed a similar situation with a relative’s maid, when he was 13 years old.
Talking about the incident which he has translated onto the small screen, Paresh says, “I wanted to tell this story for a long time. I remember this maid who was working with a relative of mine. She was not good-looking and everyone made her life miserable because of it. She was not allowed to get married as they feared she would go away and they would have no one to work at their home. Although my relative had four daughters, they were too lazy to do housework. I am intrigued that in our country where Lord Krishna is not fair-complexioned, why does everyone want to look fair? And why is the definition of good looks only associated with fair complexion? Being dark is one of the biggest stigmas in our country. I wanted to tell this story to the world and bounced the idea to my production partner Hemal Thakker. Although I could do nothing to help the poor maid, as I was 13 then, I now want to tell her story to the world.”
