Payal Rohatgi, Sangram Singh to marry in Agra; wrestler recalls their first meet

Sangram Singh, wrestler and fiancée of actor Payal Rohatgi, said the two will be married in Agra in July. In a new interview, he also took a trip down memory lane and revealed how they first met on a highway near Agra in 2011. Although they then exchanged numbers, they never contacted each other; it wasn’t until the end of the reality show, Survivor India (2012), that they started talking.

Payal and Sangram got engaged in 2014 and have been together for 12 years. The couple will be married on July 9 in an intimate ceremony. Sangram is looking to tie the knot at a temple in the city, and the couple plans to host a reception party in Mumbai, according to the report.

In an interview with Times Of India, Sangram said: “We planned to have our wedding in Rajasthan or Payal’s hometown, Ahmedabad. However, we have shut down Agra as a location. It is convenient for everyone including my family in my hometown of Rohtak (Haryana). It takes them about four hours to reach the destination.”

Sangram recalled their first meeting and said, “I was returning from a kushti (wrestling) and Payal from a shoot in Agra. Her car broke down on a highway near the city. We stopped our car and gave her a lift. I remember I was covered in mitti (mud) because of the fight and Payal said ‘Gaadi toh badi saaf hai (Your car is quite clean)’ and I replied ‘Aaj toh aur dinon se tab bhi zyada saaf hai (It’s cleaner than other days)” (laughs). We exchanged phone numbers, but never called each other. It wasn’t until the end of the reality show, Survivor India (2012), that we got talking. And now we’re becoming men and wife.”

Payal was last seen on the reality show Lock Upp, where she was one of the finalists. The show was won by comedian Munawar Faruqui, after getting more than 18 lakh votes. Lock Upp, produced by Ekta Kapoor, was presented by actor Kangana Ranaut. Besides Payal and Munawar, Poonam Pandey, Kaaranvir Bohra, Ali Merchant, Zeeshan Khan, Mandana Karimi, Nisha Rawal, Sara Khan, Babita Phogat, Swami Chakrapani, Tehseen Poonawalla, Siddhartha Sharma, Prince Narula and Chetan Hansraj were part of the show.
