Actress Kajal Aggarwal broke many hearts as she announced her wedding in October via social media. Announcing that she would soon wed a Mumbai-based businessman Gautham Kitchlu, the ‘Maghadeera’ actress kept teasing her fans and followers with pictures from pre-wedding festivities.
However, the story behind her wedding and how she met Gautham remained a mystery for everyone. While a few speculated it to be an out-an-out arranged marriage set by the parents, Kajal Aggarwal in an exclusive interview with Vogue shared that she was love stuck almost a decade back.
In her interview, Kajal revealed that she had met Gautam through a mutual friend ten years back and has progressed in every stage of being friends to Mr & Mrs. “ It was during the lockdown we grew fond of each other. when we didn’t see each other for a few weeks—at best, we would catch a glimpse behind a mask at a grocery store—we realised that we wanted to be together,” shares Kajal.
“We dated for three years after we turned close friends and then Gautham proposed marriage in a very emotional conversation which I couldn’t deny,” she said. In April 2020, Gautham went to meet the South star’s parents. Two months in, the couple got engaged in an intimate ceremony at home.
