In his words, “So, we travelled together. Generally, you feel like you can go mad, you can have fun, only when your friends are there, not with your partner. You think of fun, you think of your friends. But, even if we go to a hospital for a regular check-up we are crazy together, we are crazy together. So I felt like this is the right combination, I can be myself and I can have fun.”

Shaheer also revealed how he can be himself in front of Ruchikaa and can express his emotions freely. Talking about how she understands him, he stated, “People who know me, know the kind of person I am. For the world, I'm this person who keeps to himself and keeps quiet and someone who doesn’t really express. But, people who know, me who are good friends, know I am a mad man. I am a person driven by my emotions so I go crazy sometimes. So I can be that in front of her, I can be myself. During those trips, I realized yes, this is it. It felt perfect.” (Also Read: Late Wajid Khan's Wife, Kamalrukh Kahn Reveals That Wajid Threatened Her With A Divorce)
