Marriages are truly made in heaven and so are the two people gripping the love rope on both ends. Have you ever heard the ancient tale of the Moon Fairy? It is said that during your birth, the fairy ties a string from your ankle to your partner’s ankle and as time passes, you end up coming nearer and until you finally meet him/her, feel a strange connection with one another and you become all set to call him/her, all yours! In terms of this celebrity couple, it was Bharat Takhtani, who had realised the presence of the string quite early but his now dear wife, Esha Deol took her own sweet time.

Although Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani studied in different schools, the duo would often cross paths in inter-school competitions and the like. And that is how, since the very sight of Esha, Bharat had developed feelings for her. After striving hard, little did he know that one day they would call each other ‘mister’ and ‘missus’. Yes, their friendship soon blossomed into love and before they knew, the most beautiful thing on this planet had happened to them on June 29, 2012. ‘Marriage’, as we call it.
Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani had gotten married on this date, 7 years ago and their love and affection towards each other only seems to be increasing with passing day. Together, they embraced parenthood and became proud ‘mommy and daddy’ to two daughters, Radhya and Miraya Takhtani. What’s looks like it, Bharat and Esha couldn’t have asked for better gifts on their anniversary as they recently welcomed their little munchkin, Miraya and were already blessed with Radhya. And thus, wishing her hubby on her official Instagram handle, Esha took to Instagram and shared an elegant black and white picture of the duo looking beautiful together. Sharing the picture, Esha wrote, “As we hold onto each other ever so tight.... through eternity “ Happy (anniversary which she had explained through a series of heart emojis) to us... @bharattakhtani3 #gratitude.” Here’s the picture:
And guess what? There's no better gift than your little kiddies showering their love upon you with the sweetest of gestures! And thus, Esha Deol took to her Instagram story and posted an adorable picture of the gift that her two teeny-weeny daughters, Radhya and Miraya had gifted their parents on their wedding anniversary. Esha shared a picture of a beautiful peach and red rose bouquet with a note that could be read as, "Darling Amma & Dadda, Happy anniversary! Love, hugs and kisses, Radhya and Miraya." This is the picture:
Esha Deol had always wanted a love marriage instead of an arranged affair, but not without her parent’s approval. In her words, “If you find someone with whom you’d be able to spend the rest of your life, someone whose face you wish to see before going to sleep and on waking up, then it’s beautiful. I can’t understand the arranged marriage concept; I had to fall in love to get married.” (Must Read: Bride Wore Exactly Same Sabyasachi Lehenga That Anushka Sharma Wore On Her Wedding, Looks Gorgeous)
Esha Deol, in an interview, had shared an interesting incident from her engagement ceremony. She had shared, “When we were getting engaged, I told him, ‘Baby, you’ll have to go down on your knees and then slip the ring on my finger. Bharat asked, ‘Really?’, and went down in the presence of papa, Sunny bhaiya and Bobby bhaiya- right there.”
Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani had known each other since childhood. Talking about the same, Bharat had once revealed, "I studied in Learner’s Academy in Bandra and she in Jamnabai Narsee School in Juhu. We often met at inter-school art competitions. I developed a huge crush on her. There was a certain freshness and cuteness about her. We began seeing each other."
And then something happened, post which Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani stopped talking with each other. About the same, the star hubby had once shared, "Though I didn’t keep in touch with her, I remained friends with Ahana (Esha’s younger sister). So somewhere the connection remained. I always nurtured a soft corner for Esha. After all, she was my first love." After 10 years of staying away from each other, Bharat and Esha connected again, this time to never part ways. And thus, the two got married in a grand style on June 29, 2012.
About their long gap, Esha Deol had shared, “There was a time when Bharat came back into my life after a long gap. It was a long nice gap where movies happened and then he came back at the right time. So, settling down, being someone's daughter-in-law, someone's wife and all of that, so, I am the kind of person who wants to give her 100 per cent into a relationship to make it work. But Bharat and my-in-laws have always been supportive of my work." (Also Read: Dipika Kakar Is Super-Happy As Shoaib Ibrahim Helps Her Enjoy On A Hammock, Calls Him The Sweetest)
Esha Deol had once shared her views about getting married to someone outside their industry. She had stated, “I realised that he’s someone who’ll be mine and remain loyal. I’ve always been a protected child but now I feel even more protected. I don’t feel like a lost soul anymore. There’s more purpose to life, something to look forward to. There’s a companion to hold my hand, haath pakdne wala koi hai. Bharat’s outgoing yet traditional. In a way, he’s like Papa; he knows how to keep his family together. If he can love and care for them, he won’t let me down either. Also, he’s comfortable with my celebrity status. He doesn’t view me as Esha Deol, he knows me as Esha, his friend."
Here’s wishing Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani, a very happy 7th wedding anniversary!
