Patralekhaa Shares Her Love Story With Rajkummar Rao

Jahnavi Patel , 24 Jan 2019


I am the kind of person who is a sucker for love stories. I have a wide smile on my face when tales of how two people met and fell in love shows on my timeline. So when I stumbled upon this piece of Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa on Humans Of Bombay, I couldn’t help but read it. And now, I want to share it with you guys too.
Patralekhaa saw Raj for the first time in his film, LSD and thought he was just like his ‘weird’ character. But for him, it was love at first sight. “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 shared. From sticking together during their struggling day to today, eight years later, the lovebirds have come a long way.

“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! 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. 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 favorite 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 to have 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 equals–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.” __ HoB with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga bring you unexpected & heartwarming love stories which show that love is love & the world would be a better place if we #LetLoveBe
