Patralekhaa and Rajkummar Rao’s eight year long love story is absolute relationship goals

It is known that Citylights stars Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa have been together for a while now. While most couple’s do not accept their relationship, these two have always been open about their relationship. But, no one actually knew how it all began. Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa’s love story began with mutual admiration and love for each other.

Patralekhaa and Rajkummar Rao's eight year long love story is absolute relationship goals

Speaking to Humans of Bombay, Patralekhaa opened up about her eight-year-long relationship with Rajkummar Rao.  However, it was not love at first sight as Patralekhaa initially thought he was a weird guy.

Here’s the post:

“I saw him for the first time in LSD. I thought the weird guy he played was actually what he was like. My perception of him was tarnished! He told me later, that he first saw me in an ad & thought, ‘I’m going to marry her.’ It was so ironic!

Once we began working together–it was magic. The kind of passion he had was powerful & I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then!

We spoke about our work, love for cinema, passions… I saw him through his struggles, never giving up. How could we not fall for each other? We didn’t officially go on dates, but we’d go for drives, movies, or just sit at home. We accompanied each other for auditions, just for support. All we needed was that understanding.

He’d often go out of his way for me. Once he was late to see me, so he ran all the way from the airport to Juhu! Not only that, but when we weren’t earning much, he gifted me my favorite bag–it was so expensive!

Years later, someone stole it in London! I called him sobbing–for me, it was about the memories. He’d bought it for me when he didn’t have much. Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realize how lucky I am for him.

And the best part is, he always says he’s the lucky one. Isn’t that what a relationship needs? To remind each other how grateful we are?

He told me once that after I met his mom, she said, ‘I have a feeling she’s the last one I’m meeting.’ She was right–we’ve been together for 8 years.

We’re equals–when an article said, ‘Rajkumar with his girlfriend, Patralekhaa’, he retweeted–‘Patralekhaa with her boyfriend Rajkumar.’ I can tell you this, when you find the one–through the fights, hurdles & chaos, you should never forget to let them know you love them. It doesn’t have to be with expensive gifts & dates–it can simply be with the way you hold them while they need it & when they don’t. For us, we don’t know what the future holds, but this, being together, is enough.”
