Moms are the first love of their son, and they hold a special place in their heart. A father might teach all the techniques of how to be a strong man, but it is a mother, who teaches him how to be soft to impress girls. There is a beautiful connection shared between a mother and a son even before he enters the world. A mother not only feeds her son with the yummiest food but she also feeds him the art of living life and treating everyone with kindness. That is the reason why she remains the first love of his son. And television actor, Nakuul Mehta shares an exactly similar bond with his mother, Shail Mehta.

Nakuul Mehta, who reached another level of popularity with his best beta character (Shivaay Singh Oberoi) played in the show, Ishqbaaz. Everyone drooled over his looks and the love he has shown for his family and siblings in the daily soap. And in real life also, Nakuul is a lot like Shivaay, who loves his family. We remember in an old video shared by Star Plus' official Twitter handle, Nakuul had stated that his mother is beautiful in her own space and subconsciously he thinks he is exactly like her.
On February 26, 2020, Nakuul's mother turned a year older and the actor shared a special birthday post for her on his Instagram handle. Nakuul posted a throwback picture from his wedding with his mom, and wrote, "Pyaar Number 1! Happy birthday Ma @shailmehta58", followed by a heart emoji. Take a look at it below:
Nakuul's wife, Jankee Parekh Mehta also shared a heartfelt birthday wish for her mother-in-law. She posted a picture and wrote, "Happiest birthday to the kindest, compassionate and the most loving Mother-in-Law in the whole wide world! I love you Ma". Check it out below:
Talking about Nakuul's love life, it was on January 28, 2012, the actor had tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Jankee Parekh in a proper Hindu traditional wedding. We still remember how in his millions of interview, the actor had shared that marrying Jankee was his best decision. In an interview with Humans of Bombay, Nakuul had talked about he had met his love of 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 added, "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."
In the same interview, Nakuul had revealed how Jankee expressed his love for him, and had stated, "6 months later, when I went to the US, she realised that she missed me. When I came back, I knew that it was moving somewhere, but she wasn’t forthcoming. So I suggested not speaking for a while. But we’d already planned to watch Devdas, so we went for it, sat together, didn’t speak and then went our own way. In a week she called me & said ‘I like you too.’ I replied, ‘What makes you think I like you still?’ I was just playing, but for a day, she went through what I went through for 6 months!"
