Back in 2013, singer Palak Muchhal and composer Mithoon collaborated for the music of Aashiqui 2, which went on to become a massive success. Little did they know that nearly a decade later, their professional relationship would culminate into a personal one. With an elaborate three-day celebration in Mumbai that comprised of haldi, mehendi, sangeet, shaadi and reception, Palak and Mithoon formalised their relationship yesterday in the presence of their family members and friends.
While the two have known and worked with each other, it wasn’t cupid, but their parents who brought them together. Mithoon, who has composed music for films like Half Girlfriend, Kabir Singh and Radhe Shyam, among others, says, “Even though we have known and collaborated with each other on multiple occasions, there was never any kind of social connect between us. It was only in the last one year that I felt a strong connection. So, I spoke to my parents about it a few months ago, and soon they spoke to her parents. Then they had a formal meeting, after which we started interacting more to understand each other.” Palak shares, “When the rishta came, my parents were very happy. Personally, I have always admired and respected him. All these years that we have known each other, we only met for professional reasons and always focused on our work. So, this thought (of spending our life together) never occurred to us, but now it feels like it was meant to be.”
Palak and Mithoon, who tied the knot yesterday, say that they complement and complete each other. Palak says, “I can say that he adds peace to my excitement.” While Mithoon adds, “She has added so much to my perspective of life. She helped me discover various facets of my personality that I was not aware of. I met myself once again through Palak (smiles).”
Talking about keeping their wedding a simple and close-knit family affair, Palak says, “Our wedding celebration was a reflection of our personalities. The idea was to celebrate everything with people who mattered to us a lot.” Mithoon added, “The wedding ceremony was an emotional affair, and the reception party was a celebration of our Indian traditions. We both are very proud of our culture, and right from the décor and clothing, to the food, we tried our best to celebrate our heritage. Though we kept the celebrations low-key, I learnt that in Indore (Palak’s hometown), there were people who joined in the bandwagon by bursting crackers on the streets. They (fans) were really excited about this development in Palak’s life. Yeh jo apnapan hain na, agar aap ne gairon ko bhi apna hone ka ehsaas de diya, toh phir aapse bada insaan koi ho hi nahi sakta. She inspires people, and I am also inspired by her.”
Mithoon says that he feels blessed to receive so much love and warmth from Palak’s mother. He adds, “I have developed a beautiful relationship with her family. Palak’s mom has been very protective of her. She has always been by Palak’s side. The day she gave Palak’s hand to me, I felt blessed. She showed trust in me, and now I hope that I live up to that responsibility.”
Though Palak and Mithoon are busy with work commitments and are yet to plan their honeymoon, they will take a much-needed break soon. “I feel we have always been clear about our priorities. For us, family time is very important. We have been able to take our time out for things that matter to us. Striking a balance between work and personal life comes naturally to us,” signs off Palak.
