Uttaran couple Rashmi and Nandish Sandhu fell in love with each other on the sets of their television show, and tied the knot recently on February 12, as per Hindu traditions. The wedding was held in Nandish's hometown in Dholpur, Rajasthan.

Legally, however, the couple had gotten secretly married last February, under different names in Ghaziabad.

The love was inevitable. After all, the couple spent long hours with each other shooting on the sets of Uttaran. Nandish was always there to give Rashmi a helping hand whenever she needed it.
Later, he proposed in a very romantic way too. He booked a yacht and decorated it with lights and flowers. Then he blind-folded her, and brought her to the venue. After reaching the yacht, they set sail.
