Actor Manish Raisinghan and ‘Ek Shringaar-Swabhiman’ fame, Sangeita Chauhaan got married last year in lockdown. The couple had a virtual mehendi and sangeet and had gone for a private Gurudwara wedding on June 30, 2020, with their close family members, relatives, and friends. In a joint conversation with ETimes, the couple laughed at the rumours on Manish having a secret baby with ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ co-star Avika Gor.
In a conversation with ETimes, Sangieta said she would be keen to raise the rumoured baby. “Sambhal ke kahin rakha tha… kahan hai? Mil nahi raha hai, yahin kahin hoga (I had put it somewhere safe. Can’t find it now. Must be here somewhere),” Manish said in the interview. At this, Sangieta asked him about a pair of Crocs shoes she spotted at their recent trip. “Kahan chupaya hai tune ye baccha (Where did you hide this kid)?”
Later Manish said, “I don’t know how the absurd thing even came in and it’s really ridiculous. We have been laughing about it. You cannot even acknowledge such a question. Baccha? Abe woh khud bacchi hai yaar. I mean ab badi hogai hai (A child? She is a child herself. I mean, she is older now). She must be 24-25. But secret baccha rakhege kahan? Lockdown mein kidhar chupaege (But where would we keep a secret child in lockdown)”
In a previous interview Bollywood Times, Manish clarified, “Avika will always be a close friend. She is in a happy relationship now with Milind Chandwani and it has been more than a year since I got married in June 2020. Sangeita and I laughed about these rumours.”
