Both Gurpreet and Bhagwant Mann know each other for a long time now. While there is not much information provided about Gurpreet Kaur, it has been reported that she often visited CM's house in the past.
Reportedly, Bhagwant Mann's wife-to-be is said to be a Sikh. The wedding is going to take place in Chandigarh on July 7. If reports are to be believed then AAP leader Raghav Chaddha has been given the responsibility for the preparations.
Speaking of the Punjab CM, Mann, a former actor, and comedian, now leads the cabinet ministry of Punjab after being inducted as the CM of the state. On 18 January 2022, he was chosen as the AAP candidate for the Chief Minister of Punjab in the 2022 Punjab Legislative Assembly election, based on a public poll in which AAP claims 93 per cent of the voters wanted Bhagwant Mann as the chief ministerial candidate.
