"He put the wedding garland on her"
After much deliberation, Mika Singh has finally chosen his wife.
The singer reportedly chose Akanksha Puri as his wife on the reality show Swayamvar: Mika Di Vohti.
The singer made the choice on the glitzy finale episode, which will air on July 25, 2022.
After Rakhi Sawant and Rahul Mahajan, Mika is the latest celebrity to choose his life partner with a swayamvar/The Bachelor-style show.
He had earlier said that he was serious about finding a wife and settling down.
About the finale results, a source told The Indian Express: “While Mika did not marry Akanksha on the stage, he put the wedding garland on her to signify his choice.
“He shared that he wants to spend quality time with her away from the cameras before they take the nuptial vows.
“Mika also met Akanksha’s family and sought their blessing as he decided to embark on this new journey with her.”
After the announcement, Akanksha even took to Instagram to show off her henna-decorated hands.
Akanksha was in the running with co-contestants Prantika Das and Neet Mahal.
She was Mika’s friend for many years but entered the show as a wild card after she felt jealous about other girls getting attention from him.
Akanksha was earlier in the news for dating Paras Chhabra. However, he broke up with her on Bigg Boss 13 after he fell for co-contestant Mahira Sharma.

In a March interview with the Times of India, Mika Singh said that earlier he was not ready for marriage, because of his work commitments.
But after consulting with his elder brother Daler Mehndi, Mika felt it was time to settle down.
The singer said: “I was not ready earlier. I have said no to at least 100-150 rishtas in the last 20 years, and my work was really important to me.”
The show is hosted by Shaan, who said in an interview with Hindustan Times that Mika Singh is indeed serious about finding a wife.
He said: “I am not sure about how serious the earlier celebrities were or were they looking at it just to gain popularity.
“At this point in life, Mika doesn’t need something like this for popularity. Whenever we meet, even during our last meeting, he expressed his wish to settle down. I know he is serious.”
The Bollywood singer also shared some advice for Mika Singh.
Shaan said: “He is very possessive about the people he loves. He also has a very vulnerable side, which he hasn’t shown to the world.
“I would just tell him to let go and let the girls on the show see that. If you cannot be true and open, they will not be able to understand you genuinely. And then you too will not be able to tap their real side.”
“While these dates will be good to impress, for a long life together, one has to be honest with each other.”
Karan Wahi, Niyati Fatnani, Pankhuri Awasthy, Ishaan Dhawan, Hiba Nawab, and Shaheer Sheikh were also seen gracing the reality show.
