It's been quite a crazy time for Bollywood weddings right?! Starting from Anushka and Virat's dreamy Tuscan shaadi at the end of last year to Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's #everydayphenomenal extravaganza. But the wedding that took us all by shock was Neha Dhupia tying the knot with Angad Bedi in an intimate ceremony with only friends and family in attendance.
The entire thing was a hush-hush secret and only revealed once the couple actually made it official and became man and wife. So we never actually knew what transpired between the two and how their love blossomed.
Shedding light on the same, Neha opened up to Humans of Bombay and shared their very filmy prem katha. Guess what? It all started at the gym when she was 20-years old and Angad saw her and said to his friends, "I'm going to get to know her one day." And now they are having a freakin' baby together!

Neha started the story and said, "He tells me that he 1st saw me at the gym when I was 20 & told his friends, ‘I’m going to get to know her 1 day.’ When we moved to Bombay, we met at a mutual friend’s party–it was just us standing in the balcony. I saw a different side of him–beyond the jokes & wit, there was a sensitive man. We were both away from home in Mumbai, so I always relied on him for support. He lived a bachelor life & the 1 place he could always get home food was mine."
This affection for each other grew into a close friendship and the two would share their highs and lows together. The Lust Stories actor continued saying, "We became close friends–there was no façade & no attempt to impress one another. Well, no attempts on my part! In fact, he was the 1st call after a major heartbreak & he talked me through it–I’m sure there was a hidden motive!
He wasn’t low key about his feelings for me. I was shooting in Punjab & told him about a role for him. He didn’t ask for any details. He only cared about spending time with me & flew down immediately. After that shoot, he showed up at my parents’ doorstep & asked for my hand in marriage….I had no idea about it! This was when I was dating someone else! When Angad met my boyfriend, he was nice to him, but wasn’t subtle about his love for me!
Finally, at a party, Karan Johar took us aside & screamed, ‘Can you not see this?! Are you blind?’ You should’ve seen the look on Angad’s face. He had ‘I told you so!’ tattooed on his forehead."

The proposal was nothing romantic, there was no prince on one knee but an eager Angad Bedi ready to make Neha his wifey. "When we finally decided to get married, he didn’t go down on one knee & propose. He told me I’d already wasted 4 years & declared ‘Chalo Dilli!’ to meet his parents. Then he said, ‘Before you change your mind, pick an outfit because we’re getting married in 2 days!’ Earlier, I loved the set life. I wouldn’t give it up for anything. But now I look forward to coming home to him. I couldn’t imagine myself as someone who runs to the door, but when it’s time for him to come home, guess what I do?
He’s currently shooting both day & night. When he comes back at 7 am, he makes me breakfast & then goes to sleep", revealed the mommy-to-be.
She ended by saying that life has its own plans so trying to fight that is useless and that they're taking every step as it comes. Neha said, "We’re still figuring it all out & don’t expect to have it all together. Everytime we’ve planned our lives, they’ve fallen apart–so we’re sticking to the unplanned! The wedding, the baby, the parenting..we’re winging it all!"
Awww... isn't this love story adorable? We're sending all our love to the parents-to-be. This is going to be one lucky child. ❤
