We at WeddingBazaar are suckers for proposal stories. We love when two people are so madly in love that they want the world to know that they belong together. Maybe that’s why when news of Instagram personality Sufi Malik proposing to her girlfriend Anjali Chakra came out, we were in complete awe of the couple.
Scroll below to read everything we know about the adorable proposal of the duo!
Introducing Sufi Malik & Anjali Chakra
Meet Sufi & Anjali
Sufi and Anjali are a couple based out of California. While Sufi is an artist and teacher, Anjali Chakra is an event planner and producer. The duo connected seven years back when they followed each other’s Tumblr blogs followed by a meeting in New York in 2018. And, ever since then the grass has been greener for them. The queer couple also is interfaith — Malik is Muslim-Pakistani while Chakra is Hindu-Indian.
The couple is trending on Instagram, thanks to a photoshoot that they did back in 2019. According to Anjali, "Sufi and I were attending two weddings that weekend, so we did a photoshoot with the brand in exchange for free outfit rentals to wear to the wedding. The photos took off on Twitter, and then we actually hit news websites, papers, and TV within a couple of days in India, Pakistan, and the UK!"
