The couple has been giving major relationship goals through their public appearances and special gestures towards each other on their special days and occasions. However, in her recent interview, Vidya revealed how she managed to keep the spark alive in her marital life with her husband, Siddharth, for the last 8-years of their marital life.
In an interview with ETimes, during the annual event, IMPACT 2021 organised by Indian Merchants Chamber Ladies Wing, the actress talked about her marital life with her husband, Siddharth Roy Kapoor and revealed how she managed to keep the spark alive in their marriage for the last 8-years. The Shakuntala Devi actress stated that it takes a lot of courage and hard work to make a marriage successful, which goes till the end of time. She said, "Marriage involves a lot of work, I agree because you are living with a person you haven't grown up with. It is so easy for you to take the other person for granted, and that is a terrible thing to happen. And that is when the spark goes away in marriage."
Going further in her interview, Vidya Balan also revealed the biggest thing she had learned in all these years from her marital life with her hubby, Siddharth Roy Kapur. The actress stated that no one should take their partners for granted, even for a second. The actress clearly stated that it requires a lot of commitment, and she loves doing things to keep that spark alive in their marriage. She said, "What I have discovered in these eight years is that the work involved is the effort not to take the other person for granted, and therefore it's been joyous. If you slip up there, it's not as exciting, just becomes mundane. I love the work that is required to be put in to keep the marriage strong and exciting." On the professional front, the actress is going to be seen next in Amit Masurkar's Sherni, which is based on a forest guard's life.

Once in a throwback interview, Vidya Balan had revealed how her husband, Siddharth Roy Kapur had proposed to her and how serious it was. Talking about the same, she had retorted, "When Siddharth proposed, I couldn't believe it initially. Since we were together, I knew we would talk marriage at some stage. And then, he popped the question and did not even wait for a reply. It was taken for granted! I could have gone on living without marriage, but I do not believe in live-in relationships because it may be difficult when you want a child. When he proposed, I was like, 'Okay, so now we need to talk about it.'" (Also Read: Preity Zinta Wishes Her Husband, Gene Goodenough On His Birthday With A 'Chilling In Pool' Picture)
