Reports of Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao and his long-time girlfriend actress Patralekha planning to get married have being going around for a while. According to some of the reports the couple was planning to exchange vows on November 10-11-12.
The duo has been dating since 2010. They have also been living together for quite some time. Now, according to a report by Pinkvilla, Rao and his ladylove are expected to marry in a traditional ceremony in Jaipur.
It will be an intimate affair with near and dear ones. The invitations have already been sent and preps are in full swing.
Patralekha had earlier revealed that she first saw Rajkummar on screen in Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’, which released in 2010. “I thought that the weird guy he played in the film, was actually what he was like. My perception of him was already tarnished,” she said.
However, when Rajkummar first saw Patralekha in a TV commercial he was left spellbound “He told me later, that he had first seen me in an ad and thought, ‘I’m going to marry her.’ It was so ironic!” the actress revealed.
Talking about how love blossomed between them, Patralekha said, “Slowly we started talking about work, our love for cinema, our passion – everything. I saw him through his struggles, never giving up. How could we not fall for each other? We wouldn’t officially go on dates, but we’d go for long drives, movies, or even sit at home and eat our hearts out. We’d even accompany each other for auditions – silently seeping in support. It’s all we needed – that understanding.”
The duo shared the screen for Hansal Mehta’s ‘CityLights’. According to her, working with him was “magic”. “The kind of passion he had was powerful – he’d bring everyone along with him like a tornado. He made sure that not only him, but everyone did their best, and I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then!” she said.
