It is often believed opposites attract but that doesn’t mean that similarities do not! What matters is accepting each other as who they are, you take them as who they are and they take you as who you are. Do you know why opposites attract? So that they complete each other and with their imperfections, they both strive to be ‘perfect’ together. Like most celeb love stories, Indraneil Sengupta and Barkha Bisht had met and fallen for each other on the sets of the show, Pyaar Ke Do Naam: Ek Raadha, Ek Shyaam. Though it wasn’t love at fist sight for Indraneil and Barkha but it was surely the beginning of a happily-ever-after.

While reserved by nature, Indraneil Sengupta had preferred his aloofness, Barkha Bisht was his complete opposite and as soon as their reel-life journey had come to an end, they had realised how much they need each other in real-life. Sure, the show had played Cupid for Indraneil and Barkha as it marked the beginning of their friendship and planted the seed of love in their hearts. In 2007, Indraneil had proposed Barkha on her birthday by going down on his knees, pulling out the ring and popping the question. And obviously, Barkha was more than happy to accept the proposal. A year later, in 2008, Indraneil and Barkha had tied the knot in an intimate wedding. One glance at Indraneil and Barkha’s social media handles, and you’ll see how deeply in love these two are even after 12 years of marriage!
On September 8, 2020, Indraneil Sengupta turned 46 and to make his birthday super special by ensuring the smile stays on his face throughout the day, Barkha Sengupta penned a heartfelt message for her husband. Sharing two ‘truly, madly and deeply in love’ black-and-white pictures with Indraneil, Barkha wrote, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY @indraneilsengupta I still remember meeting this man who wouldn’t even smile at me... always on his own, wouldn’t talk much... till we started talking... and we talked endlessly and it was magical... And then he smiled... the rest as they say is history! HAPPY BIRTHDAY @indraneilsengupta u make my life so very beautiful! I love u so very much! You’re the one constant I always always want in my life! P.s. how are u not ageing???” On her post, Indraneil commented, “And I am still smiling! @barkhasengupta” followed by a heart emoticon.
When it comes to expressing feelings with just perfect words, then no one can beat Barkha Sengupta. If you don’t believe us, scroll through her IG captions and you’ll know it. For instance, to mark her twelfth wedding anniversary with Indraneil Sengupta, Barkha had posted an array of black-and-white pictures with her better-half, and had captioned it, “I might be the better half, but I’m still just half without you! Happy 12th anniversary love! You complete me in more ways than one! @indraneilsengupta.” Indraneil too, had posted a selfie with Barkha to wish her on their twelfth wedding anniversary and had captioned it as “12 YO ... blended to perfection Happy Anniversary my love @barkhasengupta.” (Also Read: Tahira Kashyap Wishes 'Hot And Amazing Couple', Aparshakti And Aakriti On Their Wedding Anniversary)
A few days back, Indraneil Sengupta had posted a silhouette of Barkha Sengupta, posing with her back facing the camera as she had stood in her balcony. Dressed in a black lacy mini-dress, Barkha had made heads turn with the hotness level of the picture. While Indraneil had captioned it as “Neighbours’ envy, owner’s pride @barkhasengupta”, it didn’t go well with her fans as he was slammed for the patriarchal caption. One of the Instagram users had commented, “Was looking for the leash on her neck from the owner...Intellectual captions are rare, definitely onida had it... sadly not all does!” Replying to the comment, Indraneil had written, “Hahaha I knew the ‘owner’ would draw some flak, but it’s just a fun use of the popular line.”
Reacting on being trolled for objectifying his wife, Barkha Sengupta, Indraneil Sengupta in an interview with the Hindustan Times had said, “The caption which I had put, was in fact, suggested by Barkha herself. She is the woman in the picture and she sees the humour in it. She does that many a times. I click pictures and she is witty with captions. So, it’s all fun.” Agreeing that social media has become a toxic place, Indraneil revealed that he and Barkha don’t take it seriously and maintain their distance from trolls. Indraneil had continued, “One can deal with it. There are negatives and positives of social media and you decide how much impact they can have on you. If tomorrow social media shuts down, and you ask what will happen to us — nothing will happen to Barkha and me. It’s just a small part of our lives and nothing important.” (Also Read: Charu Asopa Shares A Steamy PDA Video With Hubby, Rajeev Sen Post Uniting With Him After Months)
