BOLLYWOOD: Much speculation has been on since Diya Mirza postponed her marriage with filmmaker Sahil Sangha in December after the invitations were sent off.
There are rumours of differences between the couple doing the rounds of the film industry.
However, a close friend of Diya shoots down these rumours, saying, “Diya and Sahil are for keeps. As far as they are concerned they are already wedded in their hearts and minds. The formal ceremony is being sorted out as there are two families involved.”
Diya and Sahil are not just soul-mates they’re also joint partners in a production company which is currently producing Bobby Jasoos with Vidya Balan in the lead.
While so far the pretty actress has remained tight-lipped over the suspension of the marital vows, she finally broke her silence, saying, “We will take a call on the wedding date once we complete the principal photography of Bobby Jasoos at the end of January.”
Diya admits there are health issues in Sahil’s family that has led to the postponement.
When I asked Diya if it’s possible for a real-life couple to collaborate on professional interests, she countered, “Is that really an issue? We’ve managed as a couple and production partners for five years now. Our production company Born Free would always remain our collaborative brain-child. We’re both strong personalities. But there are no ego issues at all.”
Adds Sahil Sangha, “We had to postpone the wedding because my uncle is not well. Once his health is under control our families will work out a new date.”
