Bigg Boss 12 contestant and ‘Yeh Ishq Haaye’ fame, Srishty Rode turned 27 on September 24 and as per a report in Times of India, her fiance Manish Naggdev, who also shares her birthday with her, went to Lonavala, where the Bigg Boss house is located, to surprise her. Though he didn’t get to meet her in person, he handed over a few gifts, some sweets and a letter to the team of the show.
“Srishty has a sweet tooth. So, I decided to go to Lonavala and deliver it myself. I also wrote a note to her and hope she likes the gift. I decided to gift her sweets, as I saw her craving for it in an unseen video from ‘Bigg Boss’. What’s in the note is a surprise for everyone, which will unfold on the show,” Manish told TOI.
When asked about his girlfriend’s performance inside the house, he said, “Srishty is quite emotional and she has been seen teary-eyed because she is feeling lonely inside the house. However, slow and steady wins the race and that’s how Srishty is playing. She is playing quite well. It’s not necessary that a person would befriend everyone right from day one or fake friendship on the show. She is being normal and herself”.
Manish also took to his Instagram account to share a lovely picture with Srishty. “Happy Birthday to us @srishtyrode24 Feels quite weird that i am celebrating our birthday without u, wishing u all the success in life my girl. #shinebright,” he wrote.
Recently, Srishty was seen joking about her love for snakes and her beau’s surname ‘Naggdev’. Reacting to the same, Manish told Spotboye, “Yea, I did see it and I was laughing throughout. Usne (Srishty) bezzati ki hai badi hi khushi khushi se (Laughs). But at the same time it was really cute. She has said this to me many a time before and my reaction is always the same, “Shut up! Aisa kuch bhi nahi hai.” Before she went into the house, I told her, “yeh baat andar jaake mat nikalna, Srishty” but usne baat nikal di. Don’t know why? But it’s good, I am proud to be a Naggdev (laughs).”
He, along with Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla, had given her a pre-birthday surprise party on September 9 before she entered the house.
For the uninitiated, Manish and Srishty have been together since three years. The lovebirds had a secret roka ceremony in February, 2017.
