One of the most evergreen couples of Bollywood, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor’s awe-inspiring love story will surely melt your heart.
Speaking candidly about his endearing love story to Humans of Bombay, the ‘Judaai’ star revealed how it all started with a mere prank call.
“A friend of mine gave Sunita my number to prank call me–that’s when I first spoke to her and fell in love with her voice! Soon after, we met at a party–there was just something about her. We started talking & became friends,” said Anil.
Eventually, he realised it was not just friendship, but something more special and they started dating. He added, “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.”
Further, talking about his struggling days as an actor, Anil mentioned how Sunita was there with him through thick and thin.
Anil said, “She was from a liberal family–a banker’s daughter with a modelling career and I was bekaar! She didn’t care who I was or what my profession is – none of it mattered! I went through the struggle of not getting work, but she supported me unconditionally. We dated for 10 years — we travelled and grew together.”
It was after Anil’s first break ‘Meri Jung’ that he proposed Sunita to marry him the very next day! “I called Sunita and said, ‘Let’s get married tomorrow – it’s tomorrow or never’ and the next day, we were married!”
Finally, cherishing the 45 years of togetherness, Anil said it’s been years of friendship, love and companionship. “She’s the perfect mother, perfect wife and the reason I wake up every morning, motivated,” he added.
On the work front, Anil will next be seen in ‘Fanney Khan’ a one of its kind musical comedy, revolving around a father who wishes to fulfil his daughter’s dream of becoming a singer.
Helmed by Atul Manjrekar, the film also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao.
It is slated to hit the screens on August 3.
