Sameer, who was extremely interested in striking a conversation with Shilpi sent her a Facebook friend request, which she did not accept as she did not have the highest of regards for him then.

Shilpi said:

“After consulting my friend I came to know that Sameer is a bit flirty. Being with him was certainly not a choice and thus the request remained unaccepted. According to me there wasn't going to be a story but destiny had different plans”.

Surely, destiny did have bigger and better plans as exactly 3 months later, the two came face-to-face by ending up in the same office. And in just a span of six days, Shilpi was drawn towards Sameer’s charm, developing a strong sense of liking towards him.

Shilpi added:

“Somewhere in my heart, it felt that our souls have known each other forever. It was Magic!’’
