Singer and Indian Idol host Aditya Narayan is all set to get married to his long-time girlfriend and actor Shweta Agarwal.
Aditya was rumoured to have been in a relationship with singer Neha Kakkar. However, he has refuted the rumours and expressed his happiness for Kakkar who is reportedly getting married to singer Rohanpreet Singh.
“There was no truth to those rumours. Neha is a dear friend and I am happy for her,” Aditya said. “I have known Rohan since he was the second runner-up of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs way back in 2008 that I hosted. I am thrilled that two of my good friends are getting married.”
In a recent Instagram post, Neha made her relationship to Rohanpreet official—she posted an image with a caption, “You’re Mine @rohanpreetsingh #NehuPreet.” The couple received several congratulatory messages in the comments.
Aditya, who is the son of playback singer Udit Narayan, met actor Shweta on the sets of their film Shaapit 10 years ago. He is said to have fallen for her instantly.
“I met Shweta on the sets of Shaapit and we hit it off instantly. Slowly and gradually, I realised I was head-over-heels in love and started pursuing her. Initially, she wanted to be ‘just friends’, because we were both very young and needed to focus on our careers,” Aditya told the Times of India.
“I remember a few years ago, how people had assumed that Shweta and I had a big spat on the street and had broken up. After that, it was so difficult for me to even go out with her. I accept that there can be issues in a relationship, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road. Marriages break easily these days, so we were both taking our time to know each other. Now, after a decade, I feel it is the right time to take the plunge,” he said.
Shweta has acted in movies such as Tandoori Love (2008) and Miras (2008) and the Telegu film Raghavendra (2003) with actor Prabhas.
