"From now on I will always be there for you, I will do whatever I can to keep you happy,” said Vijay, a Dharamsala-based model, after Mallika chose him as the king of her heart on the final episode of the TV show, which aired on Life OK.

Vijay, 24, pipped Karan Sagoo, an NRI restaurant owner from London, to woo Mallika, who is over 10 years older to him.

In the final round of wooing the internationally known Bollywood actress, they performed different acts. While Karan performed on "Teri jhuki nazar", Vijay did a romantic act on "Tere naina". Even Mallika took to the stage and danced with the finalists on the soothing number "Raabta".

After announcing Vijay as the winner of the show, Mallika said of her choice: “I have known Vijay only in front of the camera but I want to know him without the cameras now."

Mallika, known for films like “Murder” and “Hisss”, seemed confident of her choice. When the show, hosted by actor Rohit Roy, had begun, Mallika had clarified that she was only looking for a companion via the show and that she was not promising to settle down with the man she chooses finally.

“The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika” started five weeks ago. Based on the internationally popular format of "The Bachelor", the show focused on finding a match for the actress from among 30 contestants, who came from different parts of the country and abroad.

For the finale, the tall and fit Mallika was dressed in traditional wear. She looked vibrant in a purple lehenga choli by popular fashion designer Anita Dongre.

Several celebrity guests including Pooja Gor, Aman Verma, Hiten Tejwani, Vishwajeet Pradhan, Viraf Patel, Sana Seikh and Sukriti Kandpal marked their presence for it.

Vijay Singh too young to marriage, says family

Model Vijay Singh, 24, won Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat's heart on reel, but in real life he is too immature to choose a soulmate, said his elder sister.

"He is still too young to think about marriage," Vijay's eldest sister Usha said.

Vijay was chosen by Mallika as the winner of Life OK's dating reality show "The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon Ki Mallika" on Friday from among 29 other contestants. She had set out to choose her soulmate through the show, but for Vijay's family it's too early for him to make such decisions.

"Choosing a soulmate at this point is too immature. That was on screen only, not in real life. He still has miles to go," Usha, who is settled in this Himachal Pradesh town, said on being asked about his marriage plans.

Vijay, the youngest among seven siblings, said in the final episode of the show, "From now on I will always be there for you. I will do whatever I can to keep you happy."

For now, he has no plans to visit his hometown. "He has hectic shooting schedules. His parents are with him in Mumbai. They will return here by next week," the model's sister said.

Before working for this reality show, Vijay, who did his graduation from a local college, was an anchor with a channel.

"Since his school days, he has an interest in modeling and fashion designing. He is also self-conscious about his body. He prefers to spend most of his time in a gym," she added.

Vijay, whose father retired from Himachal Pradesh's directorate of health, passed his class 12 in non-medical.
