Aarti Thakur and Prashant Pingle are all set to tie the knot. The wedding, according to previous reports, is slated for June this year.

Pingle says he fell in love with Thakur when he heard her speak at an event organised by the Human Rights Law Network.

At first, Thakur was hesitant to get into any sort of relationship. But when she realised that Pingle was always there for her, she had a change of mind.

The romantic love story between these two acid attack survivors reportedly began only a few months ago, during which they came to understand and appreciate each other.

"Call it love, attraction, being in awe of her. Aarti was talking about her grief but I could see that she wanted to fight on, that she was not ready to give up. I was drawn to her," says Pingle.

Prashant’s and Aarti’s past had been scarred by the acid attack.

Pingle reportedly suffered over 54 per cent acid burns in October 2015 while he was trying to shield his married sister from an acid attack by her stalker.

As for Thakur, she was allegedly attacked by her former landlord and family for rejecting the landlord's proposal. That was in January 2012. She reportedly suffered between 15 per cent and 20 per cent acid burns.

Her wedding is set to take place in June this year.

The traumatic memories of her past made her think twice before accepting Pingle's proposal.

"He had proposed marriage in January, but I was angry and bitter at the world. Of course, I will never forgive the attackers, but with Prashant by my side, I have learnt to smile again," she says.

The two have now decided to make things more official by having a wedding. Both their families have come together to support them and are looking forward to the big day in June.
