Age is just a number – while you believe it to be just a cliché, some happy couples have proved that nothing matters when one is in love. Though a lot of couples have received flak for marrying someone with a significant age difference, without giving a damn about the world the lovebirds have proved that love is way beyond the differences, be it age, caste or religion and at the end, it is the compatibility that matters and sustains. Gauahar Khan and Zaid Darbar have given another example of a stable relationship from the entertainment industry, who prove that maturity is what makes them whole.

Beginning the wedding countdown 25 days before they become one, on December 1, 2020, Gauahar Khan and Zaid Darbar had revealed the date of their marriage with the pictures from their pre-wedding shoot. Zaid and Gauahar’s official statement could be read as “The year 2020 has been anything but ordinary and our love story through it all has been nothing short of extraordinary! It gives us immense joy to announce that we are tying the knot and embarking on a journey of forever. Keeping the current scenario in mind, we will be celebrating the big day with our family in an intimate ceremony. We seek your blessings & love & are eternally grateful for the constant support & the outpour of warm wishes we have received. We hope for every soul to find its mate and pray for every heart to find its reason to beat. All our love, Gauahar and Zaid.”
Reportedly, Gauahar Khan, 37, and Zaid Darbar, 25, have an age difference of 12 years but denying the number, the former revealed in an interview with Etimes that the number has come out wrong. Revealing that Zaid is a few years younger to her but 12 is not the number, Gauahar stated, “Let me clear this, the age difference that has come out is wrong. 12 years is wrong and it is very easy for people to make it a news. But it is wrong. Yes, he is a few years younger to me but 12 is not the number. He is way more mature than I am and he has brought the sense of balance in my life. Judging and passing comments that the age gap can act as a barrier in a relationship is very easy, but for Zaid and I we have a similar kind of understanding and maturity. So, age never matters or hinders in our relationship.” Elaborating on the same and answering if the age difference is a barrier in their relationship, Zaid continued, “No, I feel we both are mature. We are equal in that terms. There are a few things which she makes me understand. We both balance each other.” (Also Read: Anushka Sharma Nails A Headstand During Pregnancy With Help Of Her 'Very Able Husband', Virat Kohli)
