Television actress Pavitra Punia, who plays the negative role of Nidhi in "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," is all set to tie the knot in real life. The actress, who got engaged to businessman Sumeet Maheshwari in October 2015, is planning to get married this year.

Pavitra and Sumeet met at a Reiki course in Amby Valley, Maharashtra. After being introduced by common friends and followed by a brief friendship, the duo started dating. "Yes, I am engaged to Sumeet. I had met him in Amby Valley through a common friend, where I had gone for Reiki. I absolutely loved the place and fell in love with him there," Pavitra told India Forums.

Showering praise on Pavitra, Sumeet said it was love at first sight for him and that he loves everything about her. "It was love at first sight. I saw Pavitra and fell in love with her. I love everything about her... she is a pure soul and I just love her nature," he said.

Besides Pavitra, "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" lead actress Divyanka Tripathi and co-star Vivek Dahiya, who got engaged in January, are also planning to get married in July or November this year. 

Meanwhile on "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein," Nidhi is leaving no stone unturned to wreck havoc in Raman (Karan Patel) and Ishita's (Divyanka) lives . It has been reported that in the upcoming episodes, Shagun (Anita Hassanandani), being the surrogate mother of Raman and Ishita's child, will deliver the baby prematurely. However, the family's happiness will be short-lived when Nidhi plans to kidnap the baby in order to get what she wants.

Not just that, after the show takes a leap, Aditi Bhatia, who will play the role of grown-up Ruhi, will grow closer to Nidhi. Ruhi will grow up to be a tomboyish and rebellious teenager, who hates her stepmother Ishi-ma. Nidhi will be seen renaming Ruhi and calling her Ruhaan.
