One of the perks of marriage is that you have someone to share your thougths with and someone to come back home to, says singer Mohit Chauhan who had a hush hush marriage with journalist Prarthana Gehlot in a quiet corner in Himachal Pradesh.
‘I didn’t take the plunge for a long time. Now I am glad I did. I now have someone to share my thoughts and my creative ideas with. Most importantly, I now have someone to come back home to in Mumbai,’ he said adding that he is planning a ‘reception for friends’.
Mohit tied the knot with Prarthana 29 June at a hotel in Barog, near Kasauli hills in Solan district, Himachal Pradesh. Born to Krishana Rana and BK Rana, the singer belongs to Nahan in Sirmaur district.
Now he is looking forward to new phase in his life as well as his new album.
‘My wife is part of the album. The whole idea of doing a non-film album is to make it a personal statement,’ he said.
The singer says it is a love-cum-arranged marriage. ‘Prarthana and I have known each for some years. She was my friend, and then we thought we should take our friendship to another level,’ he said.
‘Getting married is definitely a very comforting feeling,’ said the singer.
On his new album, Chauhan says, ‘There will be one song in the English language. I’ve also dedicated one song to my roots in Himachal. I’ve composed all the tunes. My wife is part of the album. The whole idea of doing a non-film album is to make it a personal statement.'
