Just like most of the Bollywood movies, Sanjeev Kapoor and Alyona met on a train. The duo did not know each other personally. It was Alyona’s elder sister, Vandana who had acted as a mediator between Sanjeev and Alyona's first meeting. Vandana was Sanjeev’s colleague, and both of them worked at the ITDC Hotel in Delhi.
Once they all had travelled together in a train to Banaras. During their train journey, Alyona had felt the chills of the cold weather. On seeing this, Sanjeev Kapoor had held her hand to keep Alyona warm. The beautiful time they had spent on the train journey had sparked love between the two. This is how their love story began.
On Sanjeev Kapoor’s youtube channel, the couple had revealed some special things they had done for each other in the past when they were just dating. Sanjeev had shared that when he was working in New Zealand and had come to India for a few days, Alyona had decided to surprise him in Singapore and had booked a seat next to Sanjeev’s seat. What was special is that Alyona had never boarded a flight before that trip. She had especially travelled to meet Sanjeev halfway.
The lovebirds also wrote letters to each other while Sanjeev was working in New Zealand. The couple had shared that they would mark the date on the calendar when they did not meet. For them, those dates did not exist. Alyona had also revealed that Sanjeev would often call her from there and would spend half of his salary on his phone bills since an international call was costly at that time.
