Well, as the most cliched line suggests, opposites attract; this is what happened with television’s favourite couple, Gautami Kapoor and Ram Kapoor. Television has a long list of celebrities who fell head-over-heels in love with their co-stars while working on a project together. And one such example is of Ghar Ek Mandir fame couple, Ram and Gautami. (Also Read: The Beautiful Love Story Of Indian Television's Famous Couple Gautami and Ram Kapoor)
At the launch of Ram Kapoor’s show Zindagi Ke Crossroads, he was questioned about how his wife, Gautami contributed in shaping his career. And without much ado, the doting husband credited his wife and stated, "The reason why I am doing so well professionally is Gautami; it's only because of her. I am really lucky to have a wife from the industry who understands how it works here, who understands the pros and cons of the industry. She never asks me why am I working late night or travelling a lot. She just understands me so well."
Ram Kapoor further continued, "She has taken on the home front so well, she manages the kids so well and that lets me put my best in my career. I couldn't have done it without her." Gautami was last seen in Sony TV’s show, Parvarrish - Season 2 and while all her fans are eager to see her back on the small screen, her husband says she has become very fussy in picking scripts. Ram was quoted as saying, "Now she has become very spoilt and very choosy. If something comes across her way that she loves, even then she will be picky about the timings, etc because she has to manage the kids too."
Ram and Gautami last worked together in Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan starrer movie, Shaadi Ke Side Effects. When asked if there are any chances of seeing them together again on any project, Ram revealed, "Well, I don't know because if both of us are tied up with work then the kids will get neglected and our kids are still young. So, maybe when they are a little bigger we may come together on-screen, you never know." (Also Read: 13 Television Couples Who Have Been Married For Over A Decade And Reinstate Our Faith In Love)
Earlier, Ram Kapoor was also in the headlines for his drastic weight loss after he posted pictures on his Instagram sweating it out in the gym. Revealing the reason behind the weight loss, Ram shared, "See, I just want to get healthier for my children. I obviously am not doing this to look younger. I am 44 and I do not need to change the way I look. The country has accepted me the way I am and I feel lucky. But there comes a time in your life when you want to do things for your children and I am doing just that. I quit smoking 2 years ago for my daughter and getting fit is the next step. You will soon get to see a healthier me." (Also Read: 15 Popular Indian TV Actresses Who Got Married A Second Time)
AltBalaji's Karrle Tu Bhi Mohhabat star further added, "I have never felt that pressure. In fact, with this physique I have been working for 18 years. In this industry having a career for that long is bliss. There are star kids who get launched easily but don't end up with long-term careers. I feel extremely blessed."
For the uninitiated ones, Ram Kapoor married Gautami Gadgil 15 years ago on the Valentine’s Day i.e on February 14, 2003. Gautami and Ram are blessed with two kids- a daughter, Sia, and a son, Aks.
