I would go to his restaurant almost every day with my friends, and he would join us. At that time, I didn’t know that he owned the restaurant. Later, he tried connecting with me on social media, and I found it awkward. In fact, I blocked him for a few days. However, I didn’t want to appear rude and later talked it out with him. We became friends and fell in love six months later. It happened naturally; there was no official proposal.”

He is very hardworking and passionate. He keeps me grounded; he has always told me to be independent and pursue whatever I am passionate about.”

Ankit is very understanding. We make time for each other. I spend all my off days with him. While I shoot from 9 am to 9 pm, he usually works at night. So, we meet for dinner after my shoot. We are very secure about each other. So, there is no space for any trouble. We trust each other and I have not given him a chance to feel otherwise.”
