Looks like Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao who is currently riding high on success with back to back successful films, is also prospering in his professional front. The actor who has now become a sensation in recent years owing to his spending acting skills has been setting major relationship goals with girlfriend Patralekha Paul. The pair who has been open about their relationship for the very beginning is known to be much in love with each other and are often spotted spending quality time together.
Recently, actress Patralekha Paul opened up about her relationship with beau Rajkummar to social media blog 'Humans of Bombay' which retells the stories of Mumbai city's inhabitants. Narrating their love story, she said, she saw him for the first time in LSD while he saw her first time in an advertisement.
“I saw him for the first time in LSD. I thought the weird guy he played was actually what he was like. My perception of him was tarnished! He told me later, that he first saw me in an ad & thought, ‘I’m going to marry her.’ It was so ironic!" Patralekha said.
"Once we began working together–it was magic. The kind of passion he had was powerful & I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then! We spoke about our work, love for cinema, passions… I saw him through his struggles, never giving up. How could we not fall for each other? We didn’t officially go on dates, but we’d go for drives, movies, or just sit at home. We accompanied each other for auditions, just for support. All we needed was that understanding." she further stated.
Giving out little details of the much-celebrated love story, Patralekha said, "He’d often go out of his way for me. Once he was late to see me, so he ran all the way from the airport to Juhu! Not only that, but when we weren’t earning much, he gifted me my favourite bag–it was so expensive! Years later, someone stole it in London! I called him sobbing–for me, it was about the memories. He’d bought it for me when he didn’t have much. Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realise how lucky I am for him."
"And the best part is, he always says he’s the lucky one. Isn’t that what a relationship needs? To remind each other how grateful we are? He told me once that after I met his mom, she said, ‘I have a feeling she’s the last one I’m meeting.’ She was right–we’ve been together for 8 years. We're equaled–when an article said, ‘Rajkumar with his girlfriend, Patralekhaa’, he retweeted–‘Patralekhaa with her boyfriend Rajkumar.’ I can tell you this when you find the one–through the fights, hurdles & chaos, you should never forget to let them know you love them. It doesn’t have to be with expensive gifts & dates–it can simply be with the way you hold them while they need it & when they don’t. For us, we don’t know what the future holds, but this, being together, is enough.” 'Humans of Bombay' further quoted Patralekha as saying.
