We all know at least one person whose love story has begun after a conversation on social media. If you don’t, you will know one story now. Sushmita Sen and Rohman Shawl have been in a relationship for a while now and they aren’t afraid to show it to the world too. But do you know how they started talking? No, it wasn’t at a fashion show, like the reports suggest, they started their conversation on Instagram!
In an interview with film critic Rajeev Masand, the former Miss Universe revealed how she started dating Rohman Shawl. “It’s a very very beautiful serendipity story. He sent me a direct message on Instagram and I didn’t check direct messages because I wasn’t sure if you check it you may be allowing that person to start communicating with you,” she said.
So I had too many of these direct messages and I had not opened any, and there it was. Touch screen phone ki jai ho because I had gone to the DM to look at what all had come and I was scrolling through and a boy broke something in the room and I went talking to him and when I came back I had obviously opened one of the DMs and it was a message from him (Rohman) and I was like ‘Oh my god, how did I do that, god I should never be talking when I am near a phone’.
The first thing Sushmita Sen did was read the message and it was from a very ‘compassionate, warm person’ as she says. It was a very sweet message, so the next thing she did was open the profile of the person. She came back to the message and replied saying, “Thank you so much. Your message made my day, I wish you all the happiness in the world. Take care, bye-bye.”
Sush then continued with the story saying she was on her way to the USA where she saw a reply to her message which read as, “I am jumping from one room to another, I cannot believe you responded.” That brought a smile to her face and once she was back from her month-long trip, she met him. “When I met this person, I just felt like I had known him my whole life,” she said.
