Indian cricketer Mandeep Singh is all set to marry Jasdeep Jaswal on this Christmas. The wedding ceremony will take place at a local Gurudwara near Phagwara followed by a glittering reception at Club Cabbana on December 30.
Confirming the news, RCB batsman Mandeep talked about how he met his girlfriend Jasdeep around three years back.
He told that Jasdeep’s cousin used to study with him in school and he also kept talking to her through social media. Finally, in 2013, the couple got a chance to meet for the first time at Amritsar airport.
Mandeep also talked about the incident when Jasdeep dodged her maternal uncle who came to pick her up at the airport to meet her. “Jasdeep informed her uncle that she was going to buy some chips and came to meet me at a corner of the airport. I was ready for the moment and as soon I saw her, I kneeled over and presented her a rose,”added the young cricketer. Her uncle might have been the only person present at the airport who did not see the rose act, he laughed.
When asked about her fiancée, Mandeep said that even though she was born and brought up in England, she is a true Indian by heart. “She cares for me a lot. She knows about my tough regime as a cricketer and gives me ample space to breathe in. She will leave her lucrative career in England to stay here with me in India,” said Mandeep.
When further asked, who proposed first and how?
“It was me who proposed first,” said the top order batsman. He said as they first met on August 11, he went to England on the same day this year and again kneeled over to propose her for marriage by presenting her a beautiful ring. “I am a simple Punjabi guy and I told her straight away – Chall hun Vyah kar hi layiye (Let’s get married now). She was shocked and excited and immediately said yes. Now, we are all set to tie the knot,” said Mandeep.
