In picture: Miheeka shared this throwback picture of hers with her father on the occasion of Father's Day and wrote alongside, "Happy Father's Day daddy!! Thank you for being the best father a girl could ever want.. You've been my shoulder to cry on. My light in dark times. My smile on sad days. My guiding torch. My teacher. My friend. My confidante. Thank you for always slowing down to hold my hand and walk beside me, I know what a big deal that is for you! Thank you for always being there... I will always be your little girl!"

Well, Miheeka may not be directly part of the film industry, but she has loads of friends from the fraternity. Sonam and Rhea Kapoor are Miheeka's close friends. When Rana announced about his relationship with Miheeka on social media, Sonam Kapoor welcomed the Baahubali to the family. "Congratulations my darling baby, Miheeka. I love you, doll. You deserve the best. Rana Daggubati better makes you happy. Love you both! Welcome to the fam, Rana," wrote Sonam.
Due to her profession, Miheeja keeps shuffling between her hometown Hyderabad and Mumbai - the city of dreams. In fact, it's been over 10 years now, but both the cities feel like home to the young entrepreneur.
Talking about Miheeka Bajaj's hobbies and passions, Food is her biggest passion, and so cooking is one of her favourite hobbies. She loves reading books, too. Miheeka writes occasionally.
A distinct hobby of Miheeka is gifting. She loves everything about gifts, from the presentation to look out for the most perfect gift that fits in the person's likes. You would be surprised to know that Miheeka plans on starting a company dedicated to luxury gifting in the near future.
Coming back to the couple, interestingly, Miheeka Bajaj celebrates her birthday on December 19, just five days after her fiance Rana Daggubati's birthday. Speculations were rife that the couple may tie the knot in their birthday month itself.
Talking about his fiancé and why he feels this is the right time for him to get married, Rana was quoted saying earlier, "I think I am growing up and it's time to get married. My fiancé Miheeka lives 3 km away from my house and we're in the same vicinity. Sometimes, you know when things are going smoothly. And I don't question it when things are going correctly. She's lovely and we make a great pair. We draw positive energy from one another."
While fans were super happy for the couple, they were curious at the time to learn whether a wedding is on the cards, even before December, considering Rana is pretty good at being secretive about his personal life. And that's exactly what happened! Rana announced.
Daggubati had also spoken about how it felt after meeting Bajaj. He stated, "For the first time, I thought we should do it quickly. So, she must have done something. When things are good, I don't ask questions. I just went with the flow. The girl was right. I can't put it in words. I met her and felt I can do this long term with her. It happened quickly and in the most simple manner."

Rana and Miheeka are all set to get hitched on August 8, 2020. Miheeka's mother Bunty had shared some details about the wedding functions in an interview earlier. She shared, "All functions will take place with our traditional Telugu and Marwari customs. We wanted all the functions to go on just like every other wedding. We don't want our kids to miss out on anything. The only difference would be the reduced guest list. Miheeka and I have designed the entire theme for the wedding and we got a team from Delhi to execute it. I want to keep the theme a surprise so I won't reveal what it is yet, but it will be truly special."
