The Engagement was pre-planned – Kunal Khemu on proposing to Soha Ali Khan

Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu surprised their friends with their sudden engagement in Paris that was announced by Soha on Twitter earlier this week.

Kunal says it was all planned. “It had to be! I had to take (my) friends into confidence in Paris to get me the ring, etc. But I managed to keep my proposal plans completely hidden from Soha.”

The couple was on a month-long European holiday when the thought of proposing to the love of his life occurred to him. “We were on a 26-27 day holiday in Europe. We went to several cities including London and Rome. Paris was not a part of our travel plan. I added Paris to our holiday destinations, so I could propose to her in the most romantic city in the world.”

Soha would often find Kunal smiling to himself as they travelled to Paris. Says Kunal, “I had to use all my acting skills to hide my Parisian plans from Soha. But all the effort was finally worth it when I saw her face after I proposed to her.”

About Soha taking to Twitter to announce their engagement Kunal says, “We both are basically very private people. We don’t like to put our lives on any social media platform. However Soha took to Twitter to announce our engagement only so that she would be able to say exactly how she wanted to, and how. This is a very special occasion for both of us. And Soha wanted to choose all the right words personally.”

The announcement has, however, opened up questions from family and friends as to why they weren’t taken into confidence.

In the couple’s defence Kunal says, “We didn’t plan my proposal. I decided on Paris for the proposal on an impulse. And I am glad I did.”

Kunal denies any family pressure to make the relationship official. “Neither Soha’s mother nor my parents have ever shown any anxiety about the profile of our relationship. They’re happy to see us happy.”

Kunal didn’t feel any pressure about marriage until now. “When I proposed to her I only did what seemed natural. Only now do we feel that we’ve taken our relationship to another level through the proposal.”

He says there is no immediate marriage plans. “Soha and I are like a married couple. We already feel married. We live together and share everything like a normal couple. We see no reason to make our relationship any more official than it already is. However this may change any time. I didn’t know I was going to propose to Soha until I actually started planning it all of a sudden as a surprise to her. Likewise, we may surprise ourselves by getting married, who knows? But like I said there’s no parental pressure to get married.”

Kunal’s next film is titled Guddu Ka Gun. He was named Hardik in his last release Go Goa Gone.

So what’s with the phallic references in his career? Laughs Kunal, “Even I want to know why all this happening to me.”
