CityLights actress Patralekhaa doesn’t know about her future with her boyfriend and actor Rajkummar Rao, but says being together is enough for them.
“I saw him for the first time on-screen when I watched LSD (‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’). I thought that the weird guy he played in the film was actually what he was like. My perception of him was already tarnished. He told me later, that he had first seen me in an ad and thought, ‘I’m going to marry her’. It was so ironic,” Patralekhaa said while looking back at the time when she met him for the first time.
“And once we started working together, it was magic. The kind of passion he had was powerful. He would bring everyone along with him like a tornado. He made sure that not only him, but everyone did their best, and I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then,” she added.
Patralekhaa opened up about her love story through a Facebook post on Humans of Bombay — through their alliance with the makers of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. A Fox Star Hindi project, the film will highlight the complexities of being a homosexual in India. It stars Sonam K Ahuja, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla, Abhishek Duhan, Seema Pahwa and Brijendra Kala. Directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar, it is co-produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Fox Star Studios. It will release on February 1 next year. Patralekhaa says they connected when they started talking about “work, our love for cinema, our passion”. (IANS)
