Talking about how the word ‘unfaithful’ doesn’t exist in their dictionary, Namrata had stated, “The thought of being unfaithful doesn’t even occur to either of us. Mahesh is so shy, he doesn’t even speak to his heroines after a shot. And it’s all about trust, believe me. I trust him completely, and I respect the fact that he trusts me. But yes, you’re right. I do envy my own marriage sometimes. Because there are so many marriages going wrong around me.” (Also Read: Anita Hassanandani And Rohit's Wish To Have His Late Father Back Fulfilled, To Name Their Baby This)
She recalled how she had to wait for four years to get married to Mahesh as she had to win over his family. Recalling her anxious days, Namrata had stated, “It was very important for Mahesh to convince his family that I was the right wife for him. For four years, I just had to wait. We hardly met during those four years. All I had to do was wait for Mahesh to win over his family. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have my bouts of anxiety during those four years. But I was sure I wanted to marry only Mahesh. If not him, then no one else. And he was sure of it too.” (Also Read: 'Kaisa Yeh Pyaar Hai' Fame, Iqbal Khan's Wife, Sneha Wishes Him On His Birthday With A Cute Nickname)
