I started shooting for the show in September 2015 and started dating Varun a few weeks later. We have been together since and our families knew about it from the beginning. They were very supportive and never forced us to take the plunge. I think it was after COVID-19 our families became a bit restless as times have been so uncertain. They met on Diwali last year and decided to zero in on a date for the wedding.”
