Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who recently got married to Anand S Ahuja, has revealed that she looks up to parents Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor for some major relationship goals.
The Veerey Di Wedding star took to social media to share an adorable picture of Anil and Sunita and wrote alongside, "#relationshipgoals"
The Fanney Khan star, who has completed 45 years of marriage with wife Sunita, had recently revealed, via a social media post, how their love story began. Speaking candidly about his endearing love story to Humans of Bombay Anil spilled the beans about how it all started with a mere prank call.
The 61-year-old also talked about how he feels that they have just started dating, and how she motivates him to go to work every day.
“A friend of mine gave Sunita my number to prank call me––that’s when I first spoke to her & fell in love with her voice! Soon after, we met at a party––there was just something about her. We started talking & became friends. We used to discuss this other girl I liked - you know, if I like her or she likes me? Then suddenly that girl vanished, leaving me heartbroken – our friendship strengthened because of that! Little did I know that Sunita was the one all along – we started dating organically. It’s not like in the movies––I didn’t ask her to be my girlfriend––we both just knew. She was from a liberal family––a banker’s daughter with a modelling career & I was bekaar! She didn’t care who I was or what my profession is - none of it mattered! I lived in Chembur & she lived on Nepeansea road – it took me an hour to reach by bus. She would start screaming, ‘No come fast by cab!’ & I’d say ‘Arrey I don’t have money’ then she’d say ‘Just come na’ & pay for my cab! We dated for 10 years––we travelled and grew together. She was always clear that she won’t enter the kitchen. If I said ‘cook’ I’d get a kick! I knew I needed to become something before asking her to marry me. I went through the struggle of not getting work, but she supported me unconditionally. So when I got my first break, ‘Meri Jung’ I thought, now house will come, kitchen will come, help will come...I can get married! So I called Sunita & said, ‘Let’s get married tomorrow – it’s tomorrow or never’ & the next day, we were married! I went for shoot 3 days later & madam went abroad on our honeymoon...without me! Honestly, she knows me better than I know me. We’ve built our life; our home together. We’ve raised 3 kids & been through ups and downs. But I feel like we’re finally dating now – romantic walks & dinners have just begun! We’ve been together 45 years––45 years of friendship, love & companionship. They don’t make people like her anymore. She’s the perfect mother, perfect wife & the reason I wake up every morning, motivated. You know why? When I ask her, ‘Arrey, yesterday only I gave you so much money’ she says, ‘Woh sab khatam ho gaya...it’s all finished!’ and I jump out of bed & run to work!”
On the professional front, the father-daughter duo is all set to come together on the silver screen in their next Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The movie also stars Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla in pivotal roles.
