A controversial marriage and two teenaged girls later, Boney Kapoor has decided to get romantic! Breaking his silence on his married life, he admitted he fell in love with Sridevi the first time he saw her. In an interview to a daily, the portly filmmaker revealed how he wooed the diva!
Boney revealed that he first saw Sri in a Tamil film during the late 1970s and was curious to know more about her. In fact, he even flew down to Chennai just to meet her but was disheartened as she was shooting in Singapore.
Even though Sri doesn't like talking about their love life, Boney has decided to go full steam ahead and divulge their love secrets! Recollecting their first meeting he says, "I watched Sri's 'Solva Sawan' (1979). I desperately wanted to meet her. I wanted her to work with me. One day, I went to meet her on a set. Sri is an introvert. She doesn't talk to strangers. She talked to me in half broken English and Hindi and just said that her mother takes care of her professional matters."
But he didn't give up and continued to pursue her until she agreed to star in his filmAnd the rest, as they say, is history!
