Wedding bells are ringing!

Wedding bells are ringing!
Actor Yogesh, better known as Yogi, was all of 15 years when he decided to choose Sahitya as his life partner.

The couple is all set to tie the knot on November 2 in the city. Yogi’s house is already abuzz with relatives and close friends trooping in and the excitement is no less in Sahitya’s home as well.

The couple will tie the knot in a traditional ceremony in the presence of family and friends. The grand reception in the evening will have the who’s who of the Kannada film industry. “I have invited Puneeth, Sudeep, Darshan and Yash. I know Chiranjeevi and Dhruva from my college days, so they will definitely be there. While the engagement had only family and close friends, we have invited everybody for the wedding,” says Yogi.

The couple has also made efforts to match their outfits for the reception. While Yogi has designed his suit himself, Sahitya will wear a heavily embroidered ‘ghagra choli’ . “I will be wearing a grey suit. I saw a couple of designs and I have mixed them up to create this,” he says.

Little more than a decade into the relationship, Yogi says that he still feels like he has just fallen in love. Asked how their relationship began, he says, “I studied at NSKV school in Jayanagar and Sahitya lived nearby. I would see her every day and I decided that if I ever get married, it will be to Sahitya. She didn’t agree immediately when I proposed to her, but she didn’t take too long to say yes either.” He confesses that he has found a supportive spouse in Sahitya.

“We make good companions. She understands my work and also knows how passionate I am about it,” says Yogi. He adds, “In fact, she motivates me to perform better and give my best shot to everything that I do.”

What’s the secret of the couple’s strong bond? “Mutual trust”, says Yogi without a second thought. “If a couple trust each other then nothing can break their relationship,” he adds.

The actor says that he has learnt how to value the institution of marriage and understand the importance of mutual love and respect from his father. “I grew up watching my parents’ love and trust for each other. They always make time for each other no matter how busy they are. They have small fights but are quick to settle differences and come together,” he adds.

After the wedding, Yogi intends to take a month off from work. “We don’t intend to travel anywhere. Sahitya and I wish to spend time with the family before we return to our respective jobs. We hope to go on a vacation early next year,” he says.
