I have a karmic connection with Shakeel: AmritaMarch 5th, 2009 - 3:14 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, March 5 (IANS) Bollywood actress Amrita Arora, who tied the knot with businessman Shakeel Ladak Wednesday, says she knew he was the one for her as soon as they met since they have “a karmic connection”.
“The minute I set my eyes on Shakeel I knew he was the man I wanted to marry. It’s like a karmic connection. I just felt it. I had never felt this before. Shakeel is everything that I want my husband to be. And I’m determined to make our marriage work. I’ll do whatever it takes,” Amrita told IANS just before her Christian wedding ceremony.
The couple is very clear about their wedding plans - a sangeet Thursday will be followed by the nikaah Friday. However, they haven’t decided where to go for their honeymoon.
“The problem is both Shakeel and I are so widely travelled that we have no place that we can claim as our private honeymoon spot. There doesn’t seem to be any place that neither of us hasn’t visited,” said Amrita.
“I guess we’ll just hold each other’s hand, close our eyes and point to any part of the globe and pick our honeymoon spot. It doesn’t matter where we go as long as we’re together,” she added.
Talking about the exchange of wedding vows, the actress said: “We were supposed to have a church wedding but there were some security hassles so we quickly moved the venue to Olive. But there were no hassles because we had a standby ready.”
Amrita gives her sister Malaika all credit for the arrangements.
“I know nothing about the wedding arrangement. It was all done by my sister who put her own life on hold to look into my wedding details. I’m blessed to have such a supportive family,” she said.
