According to a Mumbai-based daily, Sanya and Prateik got engaged in a private ceremony at Sanya’s farmhouse in Lucknow. The entire menu was decided by Sanya - a seven-course Lucknowi meal that included Prateik’s favourite rajma, it added.

Speaking to the daily, Prateik said: “Sanya and I, along with our families, decided that something as pure as love should be solemnised on an auspicious day and what better day than Basant Panchami. She’s the best partner I could have asked for. It didn’t take me long to figure out that she was the one for me. I know it sounds clichéd, but I can’t stop counting my blessings and thanking God for all the good that is happening in my life.”

Prateik is the son of late actress Smita Patil and Raj Babbar while Sanya has studied filmmaking from Goldsmiths University.

Prateik will next be seen as an antagonist in "Baaghi 2" alongside Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani.
