Euphoria gripped the entire nation as item girl Rakhi Sawant created history when she made her decision on her Swayamvar. After weeks of speculation and amidst high drama she chose Toronto based Elesh Parujanwala as her life partner at her glittering swayamvar ceremony.
True to the spirit and grandeur of a Swayamvar, the atmosphere around breathed an air of royalty from every aspect ranging from the ambience to the cuisine. Rakhi looked her best in a pink and gold Neeta Lulla creation, adorned herself with invaluable Jewellery set in gold designed especially for her by Farah Ali Khan.
Rakhi made her decision amidst the presence of hundreds of people ranging from close friends to the who's who of the television industry like Saroj Khan, Ravi Kissen, Apurva Agnihotri, Shilpa Sakhlani, Karan Patel, Sudha Shivpuri, Raju Shrivastav, Anjori Alagh, Sayantani Ghosh and likewise.
An ecstatic Rakhi said, ''Elesh made an impact on me since day one of my Swayamvar. He came across as a genuine and caring person on and off camera. He is everything that I look for in an ideal life partner and I am glad to have found him on the Swayamvar. Swayamvar means finding a Jeevansaathi and I have found Elesh.''
While all eyes were eagerly looking forward to see Rakhi tying the nuptial knot, the much touted Swayamvar took a turn when the drama queen Rakhi appeared to clarify, ''Today is my engagement though I am ready to get married now, but we need to understand each other better, off camera. I thank God for helping me take this crucial decision in my life.''
Although delighted Elesh said, ''I am thrilled that Rakhi considered me worthy enough to be her life partner. I wish to honor her decision with a life-long commitment to her. I hope to live up to her expectations and give her all the love and happiness that she truly deserves. We have decided to get engaged today, but before we take this further we both need time to know each other better off camera, and I want her to understand my family and lifestyle back in Toronto.''
Looking at all the hype & hoopla created about the marriage on TV and her new decision of 'only getting engaged' for time being, now we are all the more eager to know as to when our damsel Rakhi Sawant will tie the knot after selecting a groom from the Swayamvar held!
