Manmeets first love is singing but he enjoys acting too and has acted in Hindi soaps like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Shagun. Manmeet and his brother Harmeet recently launched a music album titled Boond and the duo hope to make their mark as playback singers soon.

How They Met

Manmeet saw Karishma on the TV serial Rishtey. He was instantly attracted to her and took her number from the director. …On first conversation, it appeared she had loads of attitude but after few brief meetings I realized I was wrong. We exchanged some SMS messages after which we went on a movie date. That was the beginning of our love story.

The Engagement
On June 16th 2002, exactly a year after their first meeting, Karishma and Manmeet got engaged at The Orchid, Mumbai. It was a huge gathering of over 300 guests who included their relatives, friends, and professional acquaintances like models and TV stars. Karishma wore a golden saree presented by her mother-in-law and Manmeet wore an Indo-western outfit by designer Anshu.

The Wedding Day Look
A few years back Karishma modeled for a Seema Roy show in Pune where she wore the final outfit in the last sequence. …It was a red bridal lehenga and wearing it was a scintillating experience. So I decided for my wedding I would again wear a red lehenga, designed by Seema aunty (Seema Roy).

Almost all of Karishmas and Manmeets outfits were designed by Seema Roy. …I left everything to Seema aunty, the shoes, jewellery and colors for my make-up. My needs were a little unique. I was marrying into a Sikh family and showing off skin was a no-no, so I wanted a mix of the trendy and the conservative. So Seema aunty gave the modern touches with transparent sleeves and for jewellery she helped me select kundan jewellery with coloured gemstones.
