Patralekhaa and Rajkummar Rao have been dating for 11 years, and to promote it to the next level, they got married. Nothing seems more perfect than tying the knot with your best friend. However, Rajkummar had first seen Patralekhaa in an advertisement and had fallen head over heels for the actress. A month later, fate had played the Cupid's role and boom! They were united!
The couple, Rajkummar and Patralekhaa finally had their dreamy engagement ceremony in Chandigarh on November 13, 2021. The duo had looked gorgeous in their white ensembles. While Rajkummar had worn a white kurta-pyjama with a jacket, Patralekhaa had donned a white and silver thigh-slit gown. On November 15, 2021, the duo had tied the knot for once and all! And since then, they are spending the best lives as Mr and Mrs.
On January 4, 2022, Rajkummar Rao took to his IG handle to share a short glimpse from his wedding diaries. The video is from his wedding night where the actor can be seen singing 'Maaeri' with his friends. In the video, we also get a glimpse of Rajkummar's lovely wife and actress, Patralekhaa. Sharing the video, Rajkummar penned a beautiful note in the caption that can be read as:
"Humari shaadi ki yeh suhaani shaam. Sing for the people you love. Kehte hain gaana aaye ya naa aaye gaana chahiye specially jab woh ek impromptu singing session ban jaaye. Thank you @tusharjoshiii you super talented boy, for letting us sing one of our favourite hindi songs. With the most wonderful @anishjohn83 @vinraw @nowitsabhi."
As soon as he shared the video, Rajkummar's friends from the B-town, Ayushmann Khuranna to Siddhant Chaturvedi dropped in the comment section to praise the actor for his singing. While Ayushmann wrote with a heart emoticon, 'Khoobsoorat', Siddhant commented with a love emoji.
In a conversation with the Humans Of Bombay, Patralekhaa had revealed her first notion of Rajkummar Rao after she had seen him in the movie, Love, Sex Aur Dhoka. However, for Rajkummar, it was love at first sight, as he had been determined to marry her after seeing her in an advertisement. She had said:
"I saw him for the first time in LSD. I thought the weird guy he played was actually what he was like. My perception of him was tarnished! He told me later, that he first saw me in an ad & thought, 'I'm going to marry her.' It was so ironic! Once we began working together–it was magic. The kind of passion he had was powerful & I couldn't respect him any more than I did then! We spoke about our work, love for cinema, passions… I saw him through his struggles, never giving up. How could we not fall for each other?"
In the candid interview, Patralekhaa had revealed how her and Rajkummar's love story was not all about expensive dates, rather they would take a casual stroll or sit at home. In her words:
''We didn’t officially go on dates, but we’d go for drives, movies, or just sit at home. We accompanied each other for auditions, just for support. All we needed was that understanding. He’d often go out of his way for me. Once he was late to see me, so he ran all the way from the airport to Juhu! Not only that, but when we weren’t earning much, he gifted me my favorite bag–it was so expensive!''
