“Let me be honest - I checked her out as she looked resplendent in a saree. What got us together is the fact that we are both thinkers, hardcore travellers and fitness freaks. It’s always good to be with someone who adds value to your life, and she inspires me. What’s attractive about her is that she is pretty and dignified,” he had told Times of India in an interview.

On being asked about what attracts her to Abhinav, she told Hindustan Times in a 2017 interview, “I call him a Pandora’s box – he is full of surprises. He is so creative that each time, he’ll surprise you with magnificent creations that your interest in human beings just grows. And whenever I see him do something new, I get all the more attracted towards him. I feel blessed that I’m leading my life with a person who knows how to live each and every day preciously.”
