Ashmit told Bombay Times that he initially wanted to propose to Maheck in Paris but that plan couldn't materialize. From what Ashmit told the daily, the Spain proposal sounds pretty romantic too. "Maheck has a habit of having dessert after dinner, and I had decided to propose then. However, on that night, she did not ask for any dessert. So, I excused myself and asked the waiters to get some strawberries dipped in chocolate. I then placed the ring on the plate with strawberries, under a bowl which was placed upside." Maheck told Bombay Times: "I was so surprised, that I laughed out loud. Since we were not sure which finger - right or left - the ring should be worn on, we paused for a while. He then went down on his knees and the entire restaurant cheered for us. It was a very romantic proposal."
Ashmit Patel said that they may get married by the end of the year and while he wants a destination wedding abroad, Maheck's parents want their wedding to be in India.
