Gurdeep and Arjun first met each other in 2002 for their show, Sanjivani. While Gurdeep was happy in the company of her friends from outside the entertainment industry, it was Arjun who fell for this pretty and reserved girl.

From the awkward first scene where Gurdeep had to fall into Arjun’s arm, to going out for movies, Gurdeep and Arjun’s love story had a smooth run.

After work, they would often go out and that is when they realised that they are very similar. It was the similarities that brought them closer.

As Gurdeep recalls,

“We were working together and became good friends. We used to meet on the sets and talk about the industry, films and then we would end up going for a film. We got to know that we are so similar, our tastes are similar, the same kind of people, same kind of films. So, you know that the similarities are there and it happened. It is not that one particular day it happened. We just knew that we would be together.”

For Arjun, for whom it was love at first sight, it was Gurdeep’s compassion that touched his heart.
