Be it Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas or the royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, one thing common in their epic love stories is that they had totally hit a jackpot when it comes to having true friends. Because in both cases, it was their common friends who had set them up and played Cupid in their ‘happily ever after’. Being the perfect wingman, Ranveer Singh too, had set up a ‘meeting’ between the potential couple, Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan.

For those who have been living under a rock, here’s a quick flashback to begin with! When the entire nation was crushing hard on the Pataudi princess, Sara Ali Khan, she had self-proclaimed her crush on Kartik Aaryan and had admitted that she wants to ‘date’ him, on Koffee With Karan. Ever since, we have been rooting for the two to hopefully meet. ‘Kehte hain agar kisi ko dil se chaho, to poori kainaat use tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai…’ proved just right in Sara’s case and she not only went out with Kartik, but they were also roped in for an Imtiaz Ali film together.
Sara Ali Khan admitting her ‘crush’ on Kartik Aaryan had spread like wildfire in the industry, and her Simmba co-star, Ranveer Singh had played the Cupid between them at the 2018 edition of the Lokmat Most Stylish Awards held in Mumbai on December 19, 2018. A video clip that had gone viral, we could see Ranveer hugging and congratulating Kartik when he had stepped down from the stage after receiving an award. He had then taken Kartik to Sara and introduced them to each other saying, “I am glad that you met”. Ranveer also puts Kartik’s hand in Sara’s and makes a heart sign, winking and laughing, leaving Sara and Kartik in splits.
At that time, we all knew that if something brews between the two potential lovebirds, then who gets the credit. And now even Ranveer Singh has made sure that Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan don’t forget their Cupid! Recently, Kartik and Sara had wrapped up their shoot of Imtiaz Ali film, Love Aaj Kal 2, and wrote heartfelt notes on their respective social media handles to share their experiences and expressing their gratitude. But it was Ranveer’s comment on Sara’s post that has caught our attention. On Sara’s post, her perfect wingman, Ranveer dropped a polite reminder about how it all started and commented on it, "So cute! Bhoolna nahi sabse pehle kissne milwaya tha."

Acknowledging her director, Imtiaz Ali for making her dream come true and thanking co-star, Kartik Aaryan for making her feel comfortable and for always looking out for her, Sara Ali Khan had written along with the BTS pictures, “It's a WRAP!! 66 days & a million memories.

Making a reference to Alia Bhatt's character, Veera from Highway, Kartik Aaryan too, penned down an emotional post for the Love Aaj Kal 2 team, and expressed his wish to work with the 'princess' again and again and again. Kartik had captioned the BTS pictures as, “When Veera says "...Par yeh raasta, yeh bahut accha hai. Mein chahti hoon ki yeh raasta kabhi khatam na ho" This is what shooting with @imtiazaliofficial feels like. 66 days were wayyy too less. It's a wrap. A film i never wanted to end.

It was on March 20, 2019, when Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan had confirmed that they are working on Imtiaz Ali's film together. They both shared a sneak peek of their look from the film, wherein Sara can be seen resting her head on Kartik's shoulder. While Sara captioned her post as, “Honoured, grateful and uncontrollably excited to be a part of Imtiaz Ali’s next! Starring @kartikaaryan & @randeephooda releasing on 14th Feb, 2020.
