Popular television actor Romit Raj married Media professional Tina
Kakkar Prasher on March 28 in Pune. Romit Raj was in the news a few
months ago, when he hosted the popular show ‘Lux Perfect Bride’. He
has acted in the films Humdum and Yatra and popular TV serials like
Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyann (as Yuvraj Garodia) and Maayka (as Jeet
Khuraana). Tina Kakkar, a management graduate from Symbiosis works
with Radio One in the marketing function.
Romit and Tina are both Punjabis who studied mostly in Kolkata. They
met on the internet and kept in touch only on email for almost two
years. They then decided to meet up and the rest as the cliché goes is
The Wedding was held at the Taj Blue Diamond, Pune. The couple chose
Pune because Tina’s parents live there, and many of Romit’s family
members also reside in Pune. The wedding functions included the
sangeet at the O Hotel, a traditional wedding at the poolside of Taj
Blue Diamond and an evening reception at the Banquet Hall.
Pankaj wore a heavy cream sherwani for the morning wedding and a white
sherwani for the reception. Both the creations were designed by
designers Pankaj and Palak Arora who design his wardrobe for
television. Tina picked her wedding wear from Ritu Kumar.
Says Romit: “Though the wedding was in another city, me and my parents
didn’t have to sweat the small stuff because most of the wedding
planning was done by Tina and her parents, and my uncle Jitendar Mohan
who lives in Pune." Adds Romit, who is a non-smoker and teetotaller,
but whose big weakness is good food: "My only special request for my
wedding was that the food for all the functions, should be superb. I’m
a big foodie, and I live to eat. The catering teams of both O Hotel
and Taj Blue Diamond served a fantastic spread of amazing food.”
After the wedding, Romit and Tina spent a week at the Fort Aguada in
Goa. They are now back to their usual work routine. Tina and Romit
live alongwith his parents in Malad.
