Prateik Babbar is set to begin this new year on a happy note as the actor has decided to get hitched to his girlfriend Sanya Sagar, with the engagement due this month. Having known each other for eight years, the couple has been dating since early 2017, and have now decided to tie the knot. Sanya Sagar is a budding writer and the daughter of a politician from Lucknow. The engagement will be held on January 22 and will be a close-knit affair, held in Lucknow.

Elaborating on the same, a source tells a leading daily, “The engagement will be a close-knit affair. Their families are tight-lipped about it, as Prateik wants to go a little easy and stay away from the limelight unless it’s work-related. While they have decided to get engaged in Lucknow, the date is subject to change as the families are yet to finalise a few things.” Now isn’t that great news?

It is more importantly for Prateik, who last August poured his heart out while talking openly about his drug addiction problems. Coming clean after long years of being hooked to substance, the actor is ready to start anew, and things are now looking on the up for the actor. He had said back in August, “Addiction is not a moral failing, it does not make you a bad person even if you have made a poor choice. People still think I got hooked because it was ‘cool’ for a celebrity to indulge in recreational drugs. But for me, it was more of an escape from reality. My childhood was complicated and there were a lot of questions I didn’t have answers to so I looked elsewhere for solace.” Here’s congratulating the two on their engagement! On the work front, Prateik will also be making his comeback to Hindi cinema with Tiger Shroff – Disha Patani starrer Baaghi 2.
