Patralekha recently wished Rajkummar Rao on his birthday with a loving note and the actor’s standing photo. According to her, she finds it difficult to express her feelings on a public platform. 'Happy birthday, my most precious, my dearest @rajkummar_rao. It’s so difficult to translate my feelings into words especially on a platform like this. I wish nothing more for you, but, a life that is filled with peace, prosperity,learning and growth.'
Rajkummar Rao knew that Patralekha was the 'one'
Unlike couples of the past, Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha have always been vocal about their love story and relationship. The two saw each other for the first time through their work. While Patralekha watched his first film ‘Love, Sex Aur Dhoka’ Rajkummar Rao watched her in a television commercial and instantly knew that she was the one he wanted to marry. When they started working together, Patralekha fell in love with him for his passion for work. He did not only worked on his part but also wanted the best for everyone else. Working together brought them even closer.
They are always there for each other
Since Rajkummar and Patralekha saw each other through struggles and ups and downs, they knew they were meant to be for each other. They would not go on typical dates but spend quality time at home. They were there for each other and often accompanied one another to the auditions.
Rajkummar Rao always goes out of his way to make Patralekha feel special
According to Patralekha, Rajkummar Rao always went out of his way for her. He once ran all the way to Juhu to see her. In their struggling days, he got her an expensive bag that she loved. When she lost the bag much later in London and started sobbing for losing a cherished memory, he got her a similar bag right away. According to Patralekha, he makes her feel special which is important in a relationship. Her mother knew it since she met Rajkummar Rao that he was there to stay in his daughter’s life.
According to Patralekha, no relationship should be taken for granted. When you find the ‘one’, you should always make them feel special and let them know how much you value their love. While they mostly come across the marriage question, the two think that being together is enough for them. They don’t think beyond it.
Rajkummar Rao knows the balance between experimental and commercial cinema
Rajkummar Rao is one of those actors who did not follow the conventional acting stereotyped for a hero in the Indian Film Industry. He completely smashed the mold by doing roles that were completely different from the regular roles in the films. Born as Rajukmmar Yadav, the Gurgaon boy, drew his inspiration from Shah Rukh Khan who made it big in the Hindi film industry despite being an outsider. As a Film and Television Institute graduate, Rajkummar Rao moved to Mumbai to fulfill his acting dreams and never looked back. Although he started his career with Love Sex Aur Dhoka in 2010, he rose to fame with Kai Po Che in 2013. Apart from the experimental cinema, Rajkummar Rao has also given commercial successes like Bareily ki Barfi, Newton and Stree.
