In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Dhanashree Verma had revealed the details of her love story with Yuzvendra Chahal. Sharing how it had all started, Dhanashree had said, “It started off as a student-teacher relationship in April. He had seen my dance videos on YouTube and knew about my work. During the lockdown, Yuzi decided to learn a few new things, including dance. So, he got in touch with me and we started our classes. Slowly we became friends and sort of felt a connect.” When asked who popped the question, Dhanashree had retorted, “He did and I happily agreed.”
Revealing that lockdown had given them quality time to know each other better as companions and speaking of what she likes in her fiancé, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dhanashree Verma had remarked, “Yuzi is humble, down-to-earth, friendly and a total family guy. His humility bowled me over. The kind of values I’ve been brought up with, I actually wanted someone like him as my life partner. We both are ambitious and are supportive of each other’s profession. We both are fun loving, so there’s never going to be a dull moment.” (Also Read: Gauahar Khan's Mother Got Emotional On Her 'Chiksa Rasam', The Family Danced Off At 'Dhol' [VIDEOS])
