TV actress Drashti Dhami began her career with a music video called Saiyaan Dil Mein Aana Re following which she went onto feature in shows like Dil Mil Gaye, Geet Hui Sabse Parayi, Madhubala–Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani and then now finally in Star Plus’ Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil, in which she is seen essaying the role of a modern woman. She broke millions of hearts when she tied the knot with her long term beau, businessman Neeraj Khemka on February 21, 2015. The couple completed two years of marital bliss this year following which rumours of her expecting her first child started doing the rounds. In a recent interview with Bollywood Life, the actress refuted all the rumours saying that it’s far from the truth.
She is very fond of her husband and in laws who have always been very supportive of her career and never pressurised her in any way. In an earlier interview with Rediff she confessed how her life became much easier post marriage thanks to her new family who has always been very open minded with respect to her career.

“Before marriage, while I was dating, I used to be really stressed out thinking that I had to spend time with family and meet Neeraj (husband). But now it’s a little relaxed because no matter what time I go back home, I get to spend time with him and his family. I meet my mom very often too. There are times I reach home late and if my father-in-law doesn’t meet me for three days, I get a message from him “Missing you, haven’t seen you for three days. My mother-in-law loves me very much, whether it’s onscreen, offscreen or pulling her son’s hair (laughs). But my mom is very critical of me. I received a message from my mother, saying, ‘I am so proud of you and impressed that you have become such a good actress.’ This was the real compliment because she can really cribs about me (laughs) [sic],” Drashti told the entertainment portal.
Drashti and Neeraj dated each other for almost six years before getting hitched. The two had a lavish wedding in Mumbai with the who’s who of the television industry in attendance. It’s heartwarming to see their love grow for each other with every passing year. They are also spotted taking off on mini vacays together.
