Mumbai, Dec. 8 -- Actor Shamin Mannan, known for her work in television shows such as Sanskaar, Yeh Hai Aashiqui and Pyar Tune Kya Kiya, recently married her boyfriend Atul Kumar in Dibrugarh, Assam. 
 
Talking about the wedding, Shamin says she didn't expect the wedding to be so much fun. "We were never keen on marriage, as we believe in being soulmates and our commitment to each other has been strong ever since he proposed his love to me. But my parents wanted us to get married, so we did."
 
She adds, "It was a lovely exchange of different cultures, languages and also religions, in our case. Everyone was very warm and welcoming towards each other's culture and traditions. It was a threeday event, and we had haldi, mehendi, sangeet, and a small nikah, followed by a grand reception. It was super fun. Marriage won't change much between us, as we've always treated each other like soulmates and that bond matters the most."
 
Speaking about her bond with Atul, Shamin says, "We met in our first year of college and instantly became best of friends, which very soon turned into love. We've always felt like we have known each other from some other lifetime. There was a magical connection between us even before we became friends. During my days of struggle in Mumbai, Atul stood like a rock beside me, giving me support and encouragement. Holding his own dreams back, he always gave priority to my dreams, which is rare these days. We are protective of each other and would fight the world for each other."
