Love between the duo started blooming during their school days as they both were in the same class. While he was flirtatious, she was a quiet and studious kind of a girl. Despite the dissimilarities, they had a great bonding and used to share everything from their lunch box, games to good times.
Remembering those days, Sanyukta said:
“I hated it when my mother would make me stay home and share my mechanics set with Manish or play word games when I wanted to be with my friends.”

Joining her in the conversation, Manish adds:
“We know each since our kindergarten days. She used to do my homework during my school days while I used to flirt around (beams).”
There was nothing romantic between them. In fact, when Manish was in 11th standard, he used to flirt with other girls. By now, she had developed insecurity and possessiveness for him, but never expressed it. Here’s what she said:
“Manish finally told me he liked me in Class 12.”

But, she refused his proposal, fearing she might lose him as a friend in the bargain. Later, despite joining different colleges, they would meet bunking their respective classes. She recollects:
“We were so used to being together that even when we wondered about what it would be like to date other people, it never went beyond that.”
The real importance of one is felt, with distance coming in between a couple. This is what happened with Sanyukta too. After a while, Manish had to shift from Delhi to Mumbai as he took the assignment of a VJ with Zee Music. She started feeling how close they are as she was staying away from each other for the first time. Slowly, it became impossible to bear the physical distance and the solution came in the form of the decision to get married. In an interview, Sanyukta said:
“I was a little apprehensive as we come from different communities, but since our families have also known each other for so long, it was easy.”
After dating from 1998, the pair tied the knot in 2007. As the families were known to each other, it was an easy sail.

Manish is not just humorous, but a thorough gentleman and doesn’t bring his ego in uttering a few humble words. Appreciating his wife’s presence in his life, in an interview he said:
“I was nothing before I tied the knot with Sanyukta. She made all the difference. It was only after our marriage that I became serious about my career.”
He further added:
“We have come a long way. She has lived my dreams along with me and has been ecstatic at every little ladder that I have climbed. She was and has remained my confidante till today. I know that whenever I'll look back, I'll find her standing steady, to give me any support that I may need...she's the wind beneath my wings!”
They were blessed with a baby girl, beautiful Saisha on January 9, 2011. Calling parenthood a great responsibility, Manish said:
“I hope I can become a good father like my dad. I know as a father I can never impose anything on my daughter. I will let her live her life and follow her dreams. I love her a lot and can never scold her.
After four years on 16th June 2016, their second baby arrived and this time, it is a baby boy. Recently, he gave us all a glimpse of his l'il boy. He posted this picture on Instagram:

Just before his arrival, Manish expressed how excited he is about his fatherhood for the second time. In an interview with a leading daily, he even said:
"It's a heady feeling, one which is inexplicable to someone who has not experienced it. Just when I thought I had mastered the art of parenting with my daughter Saisha, I have a new challenge to face, more so because now I will have to share my toys with him."
