neither went down on my knees nor gave her a ring in one fancy restaurant. Our
relationship was a natural progression and before we knew what was happening,
we began to meet each other’s families. I kept asking her to marry me and when
she saw that I was adamant with my request, she asked me to demonstrate my
seriousness by going to inform her family about my intentions and that I did.”

If I want to judge by who said the first word to the other, technically, she
made the first move. I was promoting my first show in front of her hostel. I
was with friends and she strolled past and said, ‘Basket mouth, I love your
jokes,’ and walked on. Then I ran after her and the rest is now history.

Initially, I thought he was not real. But
when I saw the serious look on his face, I knew he wasn’t joking and I thought,
‘Oh my goodness, how do I handle a celebrity?’

3. Don’t break friendship bond

There is a level of friendship where the
duo knows a proposal is not necessary. The closeness transcends to the aisle,
especially when you have viewed each other ‘living together ever after.’

“There was no proposal from me to my wife.
There is a way you bond together and then, you start thinking of getting
married and moving in together. We were business partners and registered our
companies together before we got married. I believe we were meant to be.”

5.Don’t lose your

not overdo your proposal. Keep it simple, yet special and sweet. According to, be creative, and be
yourself. Be who you are, and in your own special way, ask if she will marry

I started the proposal by painting a very sordid picture of my background.  I told her that my family was very poor and my
village was a terrible and poverty ridden one. Then, I told her that we would
be living in my poverty ridden village for the rest of our lives. At the end of
my story, I asked her if she would marry me. She just smiled and said, ‘yes’.

I knew he was going to propose that day. While he was telling his story, I
listened, waiting for him to say the word. 
Immediately he asked, ‘will you marry me?’  I simply answered, yes.  He was surprised at my answer and asked me if
I was just going to say yes without praying about it. I told him that I had
been praying since the period I started seeing him coming towards me.”
