On valentine's day, Preity Zinta and her husband, Gene Goodenough had enjoyed themselves by making small efforts.

Along with the video, she had attached the song, I Love You Always Forever by Betty Who and had written:

"Valentine's Day walk. Happy Valentine's Day to my forever Valentine and to all of you!"


Preity Zinta had settled in the US with her husband, Gene Goodenough after their marriage. In an interview with The Telegraph, Preity had once revealed how her husband, Gene had reacted to her popularity. She had said:

"The attention I get in India is very awkward for Gene. He's very chilled-out and he's not used to such huge crowds. And when his pictures come up with me on Instagram, there are comments like, "Why doesn't he smile?!' Poor guy! He's not the monkey in the circus na, it's not his deal! But the last time he came, we went for two days to Salman's (Khan) farm (in Panvel) and it was the best time for us. Gene and Salman get along very well and it was just us. Gene told me later that it was his best trip ever! He likes the fact that people in India are close. When his parents were here for our wedding, Shah Rukh and Salman went and spoke to them and he loved that!."
