Just seven days after my arrival in Mumbai on May 7, 2016, I realised that I was in love with Shubhi. Her absence of six days made me realise her importance in my life. Earlier, I wasn’t sure if I had time for love as I wanted to focus on work. It’s very easy to feel tempted, especially in this industry and with so many beautiful faces around. But, I have never given into it, as I can’t put a lifetime of happiness at stake for anything frivolous. Shubhi was with me when I needed her the most. She has not only supported me emotionally, but also financially.”
