It was love at first sight for Babul. He then spoke to her and asked her for her number. Thereafter, they started talking to each other frequently and started dating soon. They got engaged in June this year after dating each other for around 2 years.
After his engagement, the singer had opened up about his relationship in an interview to a magazine, and he said:
“For the last two years, my fate seems to have been circling in the air. Strange things are happening 30-35,000 ft above the sea level. Seems like someone is sitting up there and writing the script of my life.”
This is Babul’s second marriage. He earlier got married to Rhea in 1995, but they separated in 2006. He also has a daughter from his previous marriage, Sharmilee.
