Finally Yukta Mookhey is making some positive news. The former Miss World title winner will tie the knot with New York-based businessman and financial consultant Prince Tuli on Sunday according to sources.
Actually after her Miss World win way back in 1999, she hasn't really made any news for the right reasons. She's been a Bollywood struggler for long relegated to B and C grade flicks like Pyaasa, Memsahib, Kathputli etc. so unlike other beauty queens like Sushmita Sen, Aishwarya Bachchan, Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra. Even the likes of Neha Dhupia, Diya Mirza etc had been better.
But her bridegroom-to-be who had met Yukta at a dinner party some months ago and had fallen for her at-first-sight doesn't have any issues at all. He's a consultant with the leading New York-based J.P. Morgan company and is the nephew of Nagpur's leading hotelier Mohabat Singh Tuli. He also owns two companies in the US megapolis, but plans to shift his business to Delhi. He said their diverse backgrounds wouldn't be a problem.
He said, "With both families readily consenting, we decided to tie the knot at the earliest rather than spending time in dating and stuff like that. What I liked most in Yukta was that her Bollywood background has not taken away from her the innate simplicity and respect for elders and the Indian culture that she imbibed while growing up. In fact her interest in the hospitality industry will be of immense help to me."
The marriage will be solemnised in traditional Punjabi style at the Kamptee Road Gurudwara Sunday noon. A reception will be held at Tuli International Hotel the same evening.
They plan to go for their honeymoon in the Maldives after spending some time in Colombo where Prince owns two houses.
