After a whirlwind romance and a long courtship where they were also living in together Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan have finally decided to tie the knot on January 25, 2015. Kunal had proposed marriage to Soha earlier this year in Paris and the actress had said ‘yes.’ According to a report, the couple has decided upon the date and wants a simple wedding with only close friends and relatives in attendance. A source close to the couple is however quoted in the report as saying that a simple wedding is what the couple wants but since the royal family is known for their opulence it would be very difficult to keep things simple.
After a whirlwind romance and a long courtship where they were also living in together Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan have finally decided to tie the knot on January 25, 2015. Let’s take a look at their love story…
Earlier this year Soha took to micro blogging website Twitter to share the good news with her fans. “It gives me great happiness to share with you all that Kunal proposed to me in Paris with the most perfect ring in the world and I said yes” While we are waiting to lay our hands on a picture of Soha’s perfect ring let’s run you through things we bet you didn’t know about the couple’s love story.
Sharmila Tagore’s 9 crore gift to Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu: Though Soha Ali Khan got her big romantic proposal in true filmi style in Paris with a huge rock we assume her mother apparently splurged on their wedding gift two years back. In 2012 news websites were abuzz with Sharmila Tagore buying an apartment for her daughter Soha in a posh area in Mumbai. Soha soon moved in with her boyfriend Kunal Khemu in the Rs 9 crore house gifted by her mother back then. The two have been living together in the plush apartment that comes with an exclusive car park for two years now. According to an article, this gift by Sharmila was touted as Soha and Kunal’s wedding gift and a wedding was rumored to be just round the corner.
Jab they met: Everyone knows that Soha and Kunal have been living together for quite sometimes now. However the manner in which the couple met and fell in love isn’t known to many. Like most other celebrity love stories Soha and Kunal met on the sets of Dhoondte Reh Jaaoge and 99 and sparks flew. In an interview Soha opened up about her relationship with Kunal and said that she didn’t think they would be friends when they first met each other let alone being in a relationship. In the same interview Kunal said that he thought of her as this Oxford graduate and she was even writing an article for Oxford University’s magazine and didn’t know that they’ll click. But as they say love conquers all and soon the two were drawn to each other.
Meet the parents: Meeting each other’s parents is quite a big deal and it becomes a bigger deal when you have celebrity parents. In an interview back in 2012 Soha said that she told her mother Sharmila Tagore about Kunal but could never broach the subject in front of her father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi. Soha said that the first time her mom met Kunal was on the sets of their film 99. However unlike the perfect meeting they would have ideally wanted Kunal was doing a scene where he had to be in a bathrobe and that’s how he met Sharmila Tagore for the first time! Soha adds that her mother instantly liked Kunal.
Soha and Kunal are very comfortable with each other and balance each other out in their relationship. While Kunal sometimes cooks for Soha she takes charge when it comes to planning their holidays together. In the interview Soha mentions that she once decided to cook for Kunal but first had to ask him how to turn on the gas! On who has to make up after a fight Kunal Khemu says he always makes up with Soha who finds it hard to accept that she has done anything wrong.
