Girlfriend/MarriageIf rumours are to be believed, Anas Rashid aka Suraj of Diya Aur Baati Hum is dating Rati Pandey. He has always maintained that Rati and he are just good friends and there is nothing brewing between them. About marriage plans he said, "I am shooting for 30 days a month. My character needs to be there all the time. There are days when I have to cancel my one-day off and come on set to shoot. So taking 15-20 days off to get married is impossible. Getting married isn't easy. As for me, I would want to personally go back home and invite all my relatives, sit back and enjoy the entire festivities with them. It's a long tedious process which I cannot commit to right now."

AwardAnas Rashid was felicitated by the UP Government for his achievement in the acting profession. He said, "I am feeling very ecstatic for receiving this award. It's a mixed feeling.

It's very important and a big challenge for a hero to sustain the value of the award and live up to the expectations of the people rather than just receiving an award. It's a big challenge for me to prove it worthy."
