Bigg Boss 8 Ex-Contestant Praneet Bhat aka ‘Shakuni Mama’ Ties The Knot


Wedding season is here, and even the celebrities cannot remain unaffected by the same. Now, it is the television actor, Praneet Bhat (Shakuni Mama) who has tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Kanchan Sharma.


Praneet is known for his role as Shakuni mama, in the recent television remake of Mahabharat, and was also a contestant of the reality show, Bigg Boss 8. The two had been dating for five years before they tied the knot.


The wedding ceremonies took place in Lucknow and Jammu, and each function was a private affair, with only close friends and family members of the couple in attendance.


While Praneet is a known face in the world of Indian television, Kanchan is a stylist by profession. They met each other while doing theatre. Praneet was bowled over by Kanchan right there. She is a passionate theatre artist as well, according to Praneet.


Praneet said in an interview with Times Of India:

It was love at first sight for me and I proposed to her. It took her over a year to accept it as she wanted to be sure of my intentions. I told her that it wasn’t a fling for me and that I wanted to marry her. She is a passionate theatre artiste and a stylist. In fact, she has contributed to my wedding trousseau, too.
