Eleven years ago, an actress had visited a radio station to promote her film and there, she met her interviewer, who later became the love of her life. A story that began with an interview, never ended and it has been eleven years since they’re together and five years since they got married, the charm and love in their relationship has just grown stronger with each passing day. Setting the bar of marriage proposals really high, the RJ had proposed his ladylove on radio and realizing their compatibility after a few years of dating, they had tied the knot within a week’s notice. That is a sum-up of Amrita Rao’s journey of Ishq Vishk to Vivah to Life Partner with RJ Anmol.

Despite social media, paparazzi culture and constant media scrutiny, some celebrities have proved that it is possible to keep their personal life away from the limelight. Amrita Rao and Anmol are proofs of the same. Amrita and her RJ hubby, Anmol had not only kept their relationship and marriage a secret but their pregnancy too. It was on November 1, 2020, when Amrita and Anmol had embraced parenthood for the first time with the arrival of their little prince. Congratulating Amrita and Anmol on the birth of their son, director, Farah Khan had tweeted, “Many congratulations to @AmritaRao &@rjanmol on the birth of their baby... happiest news in a long time.”
It has been close to four months since Amrita Rao and Anmol’s son, Veer’s birth, and the couple is making the most of their parenthood phase. In an interview with The Times of India, Amrita spoke about how motherhood has been treating her, a change in herself she had seen post becoming a mother and her comeback plans. To begin with, Amrita spoke about how the past three months were being a mother, “Firstly, I still cannot fathom the phenomena. I look at Veer every day and feel, 'Is he for real?' The first thing a baby teaches you is time management and discipline. Motherhood is like a mix of emotions. Each day there is wonderment, excitement, exhaustion, love, frustration, joy, entertainment and so many emotions in one jar.”
Revealing the one change she sees in herself post becoming a mother and the ‘hot’ compliment she received from her husband, Anmol, Amrita Rao said, “I never thought I would be such a hands-on mom. I could have an entourage around him if I wanted, but I don’t even have a nanny. Thanks to our profession’s flexibility, Anmol and I are doing everything ourselves, right from bathing the baby, massaging to nappy changing, and playing with him. And, yes, in the mirror I still look like that girl who’s come back home from college (laughs!), just a bit fuller though. Anmol tells me from cute I’ve become hot after I’ve had the baby. I think every woman looks hotter after she has had a baby!” (Also Read: 4 Months Pregger, Neeti Mohan Poses With 9 Months Pregger, Harshdeep Kaur, Flaunt Their Baby Bumps)
Sharing her thoughts on how things have changed as marriage and motherhood is no longer an impediment for actresses, Amrita Rao stated, “I already returned with Thackeray in 2019, and now, there will be no more breaks. Currently, I’m looking at a movie script along with one for the OTT space. Also, I’m super excited about associating with some brands that have approached both me and Anmol together. Interestingly, many actresses in the 50s, 60s and 70s were married, they became mothers and continued romancing on-screen. Nutan ji and Sharmila Tagore ji are the biggest examples. Sadly, it changed somewhere in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s, but thanks to many actresses of my generation who set the right precedent by marrying in the sunshine of their careers, now things are far better.”
On February 19, 2021, Amrita Rao and Anmol had recalled their trip to Koh Samui, Thailand as the couple was all set to experience an adventure together. Anmol had posted a picture with Amrita before the couple had experienced the thrill of ziplining at Skyhawk Adventure Zipline Samui. Giving a hilarious take to the picture, Anmol had written in his caption, “My Husband - ‘Numero Uno’ ... that’s what you were saying na @amrita_rao_insta?! #throwback #thisdaylastyear #kohsamui #holiday.” Answering Anmol’s caption, Amrita corrected him and had written by reposting the picture on her IG handle, “Yes Sweetheart Numero Uno LAZY #Repost @rjanmol27.” (Also Read: Anita Hassanandani And Rohit Reddy Reveal Their Newborn Son's Unique Name With Baby Arrival Hampers)
