For those of you do not know, Jay and Pooja had an arranged marriage and it was Jay’s parents who found his life-partner. Pooja is a footwear designer by profession and hails from Gujarat. The couple got married in a close-knit ceremony on February 18, 2014. Earlier, speaking to a leading portal about his choice of arranged marriage, she revealed, “The only reason why I opted for an arranged marriage is that I want a simple girl who would lead a happy life. I also want to settle down and career will take its own natural course.”
For Jay, it seems that the traditional path of marriage seemed the most appropriate. Before his marriage, he was quoted as saying, “Our parents set up this meeting but once we spent some time together it felt like I have known her for years.” In October 2013, the couple got engaged. Speaking to the Deccan Chronicle, about their second meeting, Jay earlier confessed, “When we met the second time for a lunch date, that’s when dono ke dil mein ghanti baji and we decided to take it forward.” Somewhere Pooja also felt that there was so much between them the second time they met. She said, “The first time we met, there wasn’t that much of a connection.”
Since their marriage, the couple has been enjoying their marital bliss a lot. And their love and friendship are so evident when we look at Jay’s Instagram handle. For example, on Pooja’s last birthday, Jay posted a beautiful picture of the two and captioned it even more beautifully, “I feel a part of my soul has loved you since the beginning of everything. Maybe we're from the same star happy birthday love @poojaysoni.”
We wish Jay and Pooja a very happy parenthood, and cannot wait for their little munchkin to arrive.
