Talking about their love story, in a joint interview with The Times of India, Zaheer and Sagarika had talked about their love marriage in detail. Sagarika had shared how she had fallen in love with him and had said, "I met him three years ago. It was weird that every time I met him, my friends would tease us for some reason. We would be cordial with each other and stick to the regular 'Hi' and 'Hello'. But there were people, like my close friend, who thought we should be together even before we thought about it."
Zaheer had revealed that he was the one who had tried to change their status from friends to in-relationship. He had shared, "One person had to take the lead, and it was me (smiles). Things started to get serious when I actually told her about it. Before that, we would always meet as part of a group. We would enjoy each other's company, but I wasn't sure if she liked me or not. So I just told her, "I would like to take you out for dinner, but it should be just you and me, not with the gang." She thought I was joking about it! We always felt there was something between us, but didn't say it. We have different personalities but are similar in a lot of ways, as well. She is quite choosy about who she hangs out with, and so am I. We take our time to open up to people. We both are introverted to a certain extent."
