Disha Parmar: Rahul and I haven’t locked a wedding date yet, we are waiting for the COVID-19 situation to get better
Bigg Boss 14 runner-up and singer Rahul Vaidya left for Cape Town to participate in Khatron Ke Khiladi (KKK), and his actress girlfriend Disha Parmar is now hoping to get back to work, too. In a quick chat with Bombay Times, she reveals the reason behind her not taking up any acting assignments, their wedding plans and the importance of being social media savvy as a celeb. Excerpts:
Rahul was away for around six months when he was in Bigg Boss, and now he is busy again with another reality show, KKK. Will that be tough on you?
I would not say tough, but definitely a bit hard as I was hoping that we would spend more time with each other. I never knew he was an adventure junkie, but, of course, work comes first. If he has chosen to be part of another show, I am sure he will give his best and shine like he did in Bigg Boss. I am happy that he is working, because work is worship for both of us.
Viewers haven’t seen you on television for almost two years now… Yes, I was a baby when I did Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara. I took a gap and came back on television with Woh Apna Sa. I wanted to start work last year, but the pandemic struck and I chose to stay at home. I did not want to take up just about any role, I preferred to do something meatier. Now, I am hoping that something interesting comes my way as there’s really been a long gap. It could be a TV show, film or a web series. Besides, I don’t follow television shows and have no clue about the content on TV.
Rahul and you put up a lot of videos, doing fun things together on your Instagram accounts. Do you feel there is pressure on celebs to keep their fans updated with their activities on social media?
I think with time people have to evolve and accept the new changes. There may be pressure on celebs, but I don’t take any pressure to update my social media. I only put up things, which I want to or feel good about. Also, I make it a point to not let anything on social media affect my mental health.
Finally, many couples are tying the knot in a simple way, some are even opting for a court wedding. When are you and Rahul planning to have your wedding?
Rahul and I have decided to wait and haven’t locked on a date for the wedding. We want our closest friends to be present at our wedding, so we have decided to wait. Even if you cut down people, I would like a minimum of 50-70 guests at our wedding, so we are hoping that things will get better and the pandemic will go away from our lives.
