When Sanjeev Kapoor met Alyona on a train journey

Sanjeev Kapoor and his wife, Alyona Kapoor sat for a conversation with Amrita Rao and RJ Anmol on the YouTube channel, Couple of Things. Talking about the start of their love story, the couple shared that they knew each other through Alyona’s sister, Vandana, who was also a chef like Sanjeev. Once, Alyona and Sanjeev were travelling on the same train and were sitting on opposite sides of the aisle. Due to the full air conditioning, Alyona’s hands started getting very cold, so Sanjeev offered her to hold his warm hands. Sanjeev recalled:

“Her hands were getting cold, my hands were warm so I just offered her my hand and she held it.”

To this, Alyona recalled that Sanjeev would leave her hand anytime anyone had to pass through the way and would hold it again. In her words:

“It was a long train journey. We were both sitting on the aisle so anytime anyone had to pass through, our hands would separate but then we would hold hands again.”
