After a grand engagement, Mahhi Vij had a quiet wedding. Here she talks to Roshni K Olivera about life as Mrs Jay Bhanushali
Mahhi Vij, best known as Nakusha from Laagi Tujhse Lagan, had been dating actor Jay Bhanushali for a long time. There were talks of the two being secretly married too. But then they had a lavish engagement ceremony last year putting to rest all rumours. And just when everyone was wondering about their wedding date, we got to know that Mahhi and Jay had tied the knot. So when did it happen? And why was it so low-key, we ask the petite actress. Excerpts from the interview…
So Jay and you are married?
Yes, we are.
When did you tie the knot? And why such a low-key wedding after a grand engagement?
We got married this year, and it was a court marriage with just our family present. I had a big engagement ceremony and I got my chance to wear a lovely ghagra and jewellery. After working continuously for two years, I have just lost all patience and I didn’t have any patience to go through a reception! So we decided to keep it low-key.
Jay was okay with it?
Yes, he listens to me (smiles).
Is it the same even now after marriage?
Yes it is. He is a good husband.
And what about you?
I give myself 100/100 as a wife. Now that I’m at home, I have been taking good care of him… his food, his gym routine etc.
On the work front, are you hoping to get back soon?
Sure, if I get a good show. Though I doubt if anything can beat Nakusha…
Your show Laagi Tujhse Lagan was doing quite well at one point, but started slipping rapidly and eventually went off air…
I felt it shouldn’t have shifted to the afternoon slot but then I speak from an emotional point of view. I’m sure a decision was taken keeping in mind the practical aspects. I loved being on the show and as they say, all good things come to an end.
