Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul are all set to get hitched next month in Kashmir. After openly dating for a couple of years, the duo got engaged last month (July, 2018). In a recent interview with Mid Day, the Permanent Roommates actor shared how he first met his lady love Ekta Kaul. From being able to converse for hours on a common interest topic to being illogical in love, here's all Sumeet Vyas has to say about his future wife Ekta Kaul!
This Is How They First Met
Sumeet said, "We actually met six years ago when we were shooting for a pilot of a television show which never took off. I met her again on a show I was hosting, where she was a contestant. We kept in touch. I called her for a play a few months later; I just wanted to impress her."
He Couldn't Beat Around The Bush With Her
"I don't have one-liners, just the straightforward approach worked. At the core of it, she is ambitious, kind and her values are intact. I love that she isn't filmy. Sadly, films are all I used to talk about, my friends and family are from this industry. I discovered the art of conversation with her."
Ekta Became Sumeet's Home
"We don't discuss common people we know or criticize projects that aren't good enough. She became the home I could come back to and disconnect from work. I love that we both are desi. It was a moment of sheer astonishment when she said she likes me too. That's love, it requires no logic and no reason.
Ekta Supported Him Through Rough Times
Talking about his days post divorce from ex-wife Shivani Tanksale, Sumeet said, "The bad days were terrible - I had a drinking phase for seven months. It wasn't easy for Ekta, because I wasn't fully present in the first few months of our relationship. My guard was up. Writing kept me going. Anything I experience is a story waiting to be told. It's a blessing as an artiste, but the person is killed a stab at a time."
On His Divorce
"We were intelligent people, who knew after a point, that we can't make each other happy. In the effort to sustain a marriage, we were losing out a friendship. I moved out of the house and lived alone for the first time in my life."
