The popular telly show on Star Plus, ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ actor Anas Rashid is all set to walk down the aisle with his alleged fiancee by the end of this year! Anas’s family has found a suitable match for him, and the girl is all of 24 and hails from Malerkotla, Punjab. But from past six years, Heena has been living in Chandigarh. Anas is happy with his family’s choice and said he is ready to marry the girl who is 14 years younger to him. Anas confirmed his wedding news to and said, “Yes, it’s true. I was clear that I wanted to tie the knot with a girl of my family’s choice and it’s finally happening with everyone’s blessings.” He further added saying,  “We are 14 years apart and, at the moment, are getting to know each other.” The actor shocked all his female fans when news of his secret engagement came out, and during the Eid holiday, the actor was in Malerkota in Punjab.

But recently, Anas invited trouble for himself when he was questioned by the tabloid, Hindustan Times that why he did not choose to marry someone from the television industry, to which the 36-year-old actor said, “Everything happened very quickly. I am working in this industry aur agar bahu bhi kaam karegi, toh ghar pe kaun rahega, (I am working in the industry and if my wife will also work then who will stay at the home). For my family, the fact that I am working in this industry is enough.”

He even revealed that his wife-to-be Heena works as an HR professional in the immigration sector and is a modern and independent girl. He even added that it is totally up to her whether she wants to continue working in the same field or change. Our sister publication, BollywoodLife asked the famous star who would he prefer as a life partner – a homemaker or a working wife, he said, “We have spoken about it. I have not imposed any clause on her. However, Heena called me and said she plans to quit her job to learn cooking. We barely knew each other when our alliance was finalized. It is her choice to leave her job. I am a good cook so she is scared (laughs out loud). She is worried that she has to adjust with me.”

Anas’s sexist comment on his wife-to-be Heena is just appalling, and we are totally shocked. Anas was last seen in Diya Aur Baati Hum wherein he played the character of Sooraj Rati who supports his wife to pursue her dreams. Earlier Anas was in a relationship with telly actress Rati Pandey and the two dated for almost eight years. But their relationship hit the rocks and the two broke up in February 2016.  In today’s time, people across the globe talk about women empowerment and understand that women are confined to doing household chores or looking after the family. We can only say that stop putting women down all the time and in the world of equality try changing your mindset for once and all.
