One more popular onscreen jodi has declared they are â€˜loversâ€™ in real life too. They are Romit Raj and Shilpa Shinde, who were seen paired opposite each other in Maayka (Zee TV).â€œYes, we are seeing each other,â€ confirms Romit, â€œall I can tell you as of now is that we are very good friends and are a couple.â€Romit and Shilpa met each other on the sets of Maayka. Romit adds, â€œI saw her first in 2003 but we met each other on the sets of Maayka. Slowly, we became friends and now we are together.â€
Surprisingly, it has been only about three months since they started going around. The actor says, â€œWeâ€™ve been really good friends for a long time but our relationship grew only after she left the show. After she left Maayka, we realized that we were in love. Normally, people fall in love while they are working together but in our case it has been the completely opposite.â€
How does he spend time with Shilpa now that sheâ€™s no longer shooting for the show and he is?
â€œIt actually gets very difficult but I am glad I donâ€™t have any other show to do as of now (laughs). But we do manage to find time for each other,â€ says Romit.
When asked about marriage, the actor says they havenâ€™t thought about it yet. He adds, â€œWe havenâ€™t approached our parents but one thing I can tell you is still there is time. Filhaal toh we are getting to know each other better. Our families know that we are great friends so when the appropriate time comes, we will soon approach them.â€
Shilpa Shinde, who is presently relaxing at home, says, â€œYes, we are very good friends and he even comes over to my place frequently. Romit is a very nice person and thatâ€™s the reason we are still in touch. But we havenâ€™t thought about marriage as of now, we will let you know once everything gets finalized.â€
