This year saw some of the interesting things happening in the lives of our beloved celebs. Some walked down the aisle, some got engaged and some welcomed tiny humans into their lives. And now a wedding is taking place in the Kapoor family and the Kapoor’s can’t hold the excitement and will celebrate it with posh and pomp.
Yes, you heard it right Kareena and Karisma’s cousin Armaan Jain has gotten engaged to his longtime girlfriend Anissa Malhotra who happens to be a lifestyle blogger and stylist. Armaan and Anissa have been dating for quite a long time now so when Armaan popped the question to Anissa she couldn’t refuse but say a big yes to him. The first pictures from the engagement were shared by Karisma Kapoor on her Instagram handle. In the pictures, the much in love couple can be seen lost in each other’s eyes. Take a look:
For those who don’t know, Armaan is Karisma and Kareena’s bua Rima Jain and Manoj Jain’s son. Armaan made his Bollywood debut with the film Lekar Hum Deewana Dil in 2014. Unfortunately, the film was a flop at the box office. Talking about his debut film Armaan had once shared that he had realized the mistakes and had learnt a lot from his debut movie.
In an interview with a leading daily sometime back Armaan had talked about the Kapoor family and how they are synonyms to food. He had said, “In Kapoor family, we talk only about food, not about acting. Every time when the family is together, we pull each other’s leg. There is only noise and food pollution in the Kapoor family. It is a mess, but it is lot of fun. No one talks about acting or films. But everyone is acting by screaming, jumping and doing melodrama.”
In the same interaction when he was probed further to tell is he feels pressurised coming from a family of actors, he had replied, “I am very proud, it is an honor to be promoted as Raj Kapoor’s grandson. I feel I am lucky to be associated with this name and the family. I do get scared at times of this name. I hope I get it right. But I don’t take it as pressure. I will do all the hard work and give my best.”
Talking about his upbringing Armaan had shared, “While I was growing up there was nothing related to films. I hardly saw movies. I think it (surname) can give you an opportunity to meet people. After that everything is in your hands. We are very close-knit family we all love each other. I don’t see any disadvantage in being associated with a film family. My high was to entertain people, make them laugh. I felt the best platform to make people smile was to either become a joker or get into movies.”
In an interaction with Times of India Armaan had once talked about the time when he had decided that he wants to be in the films. He had said, “After school, I went to Regents College in London for my under-graduation to take a business degree. While I always knew in my heart that I wanted to be in films, I didn’t have the guts to tell my parents that, then. I topped my class in the first year but felt that I was wasting time and money there.”
He had further added, “I actually wanted to come back and start working in films. In between my semesters, I got the opportunity to meet Karan Johar in Mumbai, who was then directing My Name Is Khan. I went to him and he took me as an assistant director under him. I told my parents that I wanted to drop out of Regents. I went around in circles in front of my parents telling them that, but, surprisingly, they were fine as long as I was going to give my 100% to what I was going to do. I assisted for three years in Dharma and worked on I Hate Luv Storys, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and finally SOTY. I got passionate about direction and was struck by camera. While assisting on SOTY, Abhishek Varman and me became really good friends.”
Here’s extending our heartiest congratulations to Armaan and Anissa on getting engaged!
