The Sawaar Loon singer Monali Thakur met her husband Maik Richte in Switzerland and they ‘clicked instantly’
In a sweet surprise, singer Monali Thakur revealed that she has been married for the past three years to a Switzerland-based restaurateur Maik Richte.
In a recent interview with The Times Of India, Monali revealed that she got married to Maik in 2017.
“I haven’t made it official anywhere on social media yet, but people had already guessed it. A couple of times when my ring was mistakenly visible in my Instagram photos, a lot of people commented, asking if it was my wedding ring. That said, Maik and I have successfully been able to hide our marriage for three years,” she said.
The playback singer, who is known for her superhit songs such as Moh Moh Ke Dhaage, Sawaar Loon, Aga Bai, Zara Zara Touch Me, and several others, said that she chose to keep her marital status a secret as they did not have a conventional wedding.
“The news of my marriage will come as a shock to many as none of my industry friends were aware or invited. We kept delaying the ceremony and announcement and three years just passed by,” Monali was quoted by the newspaper.
The 34-year-old singer further revealed that she met her husband Maik in Switzerland and it was an “instant click”.
“Maik proposed to me at the exact spot where we had met for the first time, under a tree, on a freezing Christmas Eve 2016. My reply was an instant yes,” Monali added.
On Valentine's Day, the singer posted a picture with her husband without revealing his identity. The caption said, “That’s my Valentine this year.... and the next year.. and the next year.. and the next year.. and blah blah blah blah..!! Hope you guys have a heartfelt Valentine’s Day too.”
