In an interview with the Humans of Bombay, Nakuul had talked about how he had met the love of his life. He had said, "My first thought when I saw Jankee was, ‘How amazing would life be, if she agreed to marry me.’ I was only 18 but my instincts told me, she was the one. We were both training with Shiamak–I saw her there for the first time. I was also interning at BSE & remember travelling from there to Andheri, strategising an opening line."
He had further elaborated on how he had gathered the courage to start a conversation with her. He had said, "Finally, I gathered the courage & asked her, ‘Do you have a name?’ Her look said, ‘What do you mean, do you have a name?’ But she just said, ‘Jankee’. After that, it took me 2 months to get her number! We talked every night for 6 months before I asked her out. I went to her house with a bouquet & a card–cheesy, I know! But all she said was, ‘I’ll call you.’ Then she called & said, ‘I don’t see you like that.’ It was a no go–but I continued to be her friend despite how hard it was."
