Actor Nihar Pandya, who will be seen performing in Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, doesn’t want himself to be addressed as ‘Deepika Padukone‘s ex’. As reported by Masala magazine, the actor is soon going to get married to singer Neeti Mohan and he wants the media to at least not use the prefix while reporting about his wedding news.

Nihar and Neeti are reportedly getting married on February 15. The actor says that he has no hard feelings for Deepika in his heart but he is fed up of being referred to as her former love. Nihar asserts that he has his own identity and he is constantly working hard towards maintaining that.

Both Nihar and Neeti initially decided to hide their wedding. However, things couldn’t get materialised. The pre-wedding functions of the two will be done on February 14, on Valentine’s Day. On the work front, Neeti is popular for her Hindi film songs like Ishq Vala Love (Student of The Year), Nainowale Ne (Padmaavat), Galat Baat Hai (Main Tera Hero), and Jiya Re (Jab Tak Hai Jaan) among others. For Nihar, Manikarnika is his launching pad in Bollywood.

Nihar and Deepika dated for a brief period during their initial days in the industry. The two however went separate ways soon when the actress began her career in the Hindi film industry. She is now happily married to actor Ranveer Singh. The two tied the knot on November 14 and 15 last year in a lavish wedding ceremony at Italy’s Lake Como. The couple is regarded as one of the most loved Bollywood couples. Their statements in the media for each other and about their relationship keep surfacing and seem absolutely love filled.
