Sambhavna told IndiaForum, “Yes, I got engaged to him against my parents’ will. I have been trying to convince them for a long time now. However, they haven’t agreed on it. Their prime concern is that Avinash, when he started off wasn’t financially settled. But, that is how the industry works. Success isn’t a quick thing, one has to struggle towards it. I, myself have struggled for a long time till reaching that ‘settled’ status. So, I understand my parents concern that me, being the female in the union, am more financially sane than him and that becomes a problem. However, I have never been a materialistic person and such things never matter to me. Besides, Avinash is not someone who wants to sit back home and relax. He is a talented man and is working his way up slowly.”
She added, “It’s not that I took this take immediately. Its been five years and my parents asked me to meet prospective grooms for marriage. Respecting them, I even met a couple of them. But, when they uploaded my profile on matrimonial sites, I realised its time to make them realise that Avinash and I cannot live without each other.”
We are not giving up on trying to convince them. I know it sounds a filmy thing, where such a union only seem to happen in filmy stories, but, trust me, it happens in real if the people involved are totally honest. I love my parents and will keep convincing them,”she said.
The couple got engaged on February 13 this year but announced it yesterday by posting a picture on Twitter. According to reports, Sambhavna’s parents were not happy with her relationship with Avinash, she has got engaged without her parent’s consent.The reason is that Avinash is not financially well off.
