This could be perhaps one of the best Public Relations Management, Suhel Seth has used for himself.
He was recently in news when multiple women narrated stories of sexual assault against him. Since then Suhel’s twitter account, which mocked Congress and its President very often, had stopped buzzing. However, he is back in the news today for apparently being engaged to model Lakshmi Menon. Seth is said to be dating her over a year now.
Suhel who is 55-years-old exchanged rings with the 37-year-old model at his Gurgaon DLF Magnolias residence, as per a report by Mumbai Mirror. The engagement was attended by his mother, brother Swapan Seth along with 10 close friends. It is also rumoured that Suhel took off along with Lakshmi to Goa and Switzerland after the engagement.
Reports are rife that the two could marry while on their vacation itself and return to host a gathering in Gurgaon. Suhel has also sent out an invite for dinner stating ‘Save-the-date’ which is signed by both of them. He plans to host a dinner for friends on 25th December Christmas Day.
Lakshmi hails from Bangalore and has been in the fashion industry since 2008. She was earlier in a relationship with photographer Prabuddha Dasgupta, until his death in 2012.
Suhel has lost out on most of his professional contracts after several women including model Diandra Soares accused him of sexually harassing them. TATA Sons terminated his contract, Coca-Cola said their long-standing association with Seth stands dissolved. While Adani group too did not renew his contract after September 2018, Mahindra group and JSW group too have disassociated themselves with him.
While none of the women have officially filed any complained against Seth, the tag of #MeToo will follow him for a long time and perhaps no corporate will assign any contracts to Seth for his alleged misconduct.
Here’s wishing the couple all the best for a new journey!
