As they recall their initial meeting, Arjun says, “We met through a common friend at a party. I found her sweet-looking and innocent. The best thing I like about her was her simplicity; that’s mainly what attracted me to her.”
Neha says this about the first meeting with her beloved husband, “For Arjun it was love at first sight. However, it wasn’t the case for me since I was shy and reserved. After a few meetings, we became good friends. Then we started meeting often, and finally started to go out.”
After a few meetings, which were casual, Arjun proposed to her perfect girl who took a while to say yes. Wedding bells followed their 8-year long courtship and the couple tied the knot on 20 May, 2013.

Their journey from partners to parents

On becoming a father, a very emotional Arjun exclaimed, “He (my son) is one lucky charm for me. Ayaan was born in January, and I signed ‘Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi’ in March and now it is ‘Naagin’. I guess I’m doing something right. He has brought in so much positivity into my life.”

And, the story continues...
Arjun is a shopaholic and Neha believes that he can shop till he drops. Arjun is also a romantic at heart. The self-confessed romantic says, “I am a born romantic. I see romance in everything. I can just come out of the shower and if Neha is just sitting and watching TV, I will sprinkle water on her or when she is cooking I will just swirl her. These kinds of actions are called typical filmy but it is such things that we all enjoy.” Also Read: Sonu Nigam Wanted A Housewife, Madhurima Happily Became One, Love Story Of Sonu Nigam And Madhurima
The couple has been together for a very long time and it is reasonable that they have their take on the things that they like and hate about each other.
There are many things you can do to make your marriage successful and happy! Here are some of them.
When asked about the same, Arjun says, “I love that Neha is caring but this also has a downside. Because she is good-natured as a person, she tends to think the same about others. So she never makes herself the priority.”
Neha, on the other hand, points out, “Arjun’s best quality is that he is always ready to help people. One annoying habit has to be that he watches only news channels when he is at home.”
Arjun and Neha are irrevocably in love with each other and we love them in return, for giving us some serious relationship goals. They are enjoying marital and parental bliss to the fullest. We hope that their relationship grows stronger each day!
