In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Anil Kapoor had talked about his marriage with Sunita and choosing between love and career. On being asked what the story behind their marriage is, Anil had quoted as saying, “I fell in love with her voice first. I thought ‘oh God, what a beautiful voice yaar, kya English bolti hai, pronunciation is so well’. I met her for the first time at Raj Kapoor’s house. She was so attractive, and if I may say, sexy also… she wore these gogo glasses, which are big, round and rimmed. Then we started chatting on the phone, and our friendship grew. First, it was a very platonic friendship, which developed into love. I started missing her when she wasn’t around. I had to speak to her, I felt a vacuum. I would travel by buses to meet her.”
In the same interaction when Anil had asked if he ever got dissuaded to get married as a young actor, he had replied, “I was dissuaded, (people said) it was hara-kiri for me to get married. I came to a situation where I was at crossroads — career or love. I had started getting work, but everyone said ‘you are doing well, and your career has just started. You are climbing the ladder of success, and now that you are getting married, you are going to come down.’ I had to make a choice — either come down or get married. I said I don’t mind coming down, but I will not sacrifice… she’s more important for me. It’s a fact, I am not faking it.” (Also Read: Nushrat Bharucha Reveals With Whom She Wants To Spend The Rest of Her Life, Hinting At Her Mr Right)
