The couple was very nicely co-ordinated for the ceremony. Sanya wore a pink lehenga and Prateik complemented her in a white kurta-pyjama teamed with a pink brocade jacket. Sanya and I, along with our families, decided that something as pure as love should be solemnised on an auspicious day and what better day than Basant Panchami. She's the best partner I could have asked for. It didn't take me long to figure out that she was the one for me," Prateik said in a newspaper report.

Sanya and Prateik, who met through common friends, have known each other for over eight years but started dating only a year ago after Sanya returned from London. She has worked as a production assistant on the Danny Huston-starrer, "The Last Photograph," and as a production runner on the Salma Hayek short, "11th Hour." Prateik plans to hold separate functions in New Delhi, Lucknow and Mumbai post the nuptials in 2019.
