Harsh once got me a bag worth ₹2 lakh: Bharti
Comedienne Bharti Singh and writer Harsh Limba chiyaa’s love story is straight out of a fairytale. They met seven years ago on the sets of comedy show TV show Comedy Circus — where Bharti was a contestant and Harsh was a script writer — and though it wasn’t love at first sight, there was an instant click between the two. More than a year later, a proposal followed and today, the two are happily married. On Valentine’s Day, today, as the couple is in Sri Lanka for a show, they get candid and answer some quirky questions about their love story.
How has the little more than twomonthold married life been so far?
Bharti: We don’t feel like a couple. Same maara maari chalti rehti hai!
Harsh: We were living as a couple for seven years. It’s just that now we have an official seal. Thankfully, the good morning and night messages is not over!
When you tied the knot on December 3, 2017, what was the first thing you said to each other?
Bharti: Trust rakhna aur mujhe khush rakhna. Don’t scold me in front of others. Harsh: I was so happy that I asked her, ‘Bharti, hamari
shaadi ho gayi?’
What’s your idea of love?
Bharti: I’m too practical. For me, going out, travelling together, isn’t love. I love staying at home with Harsh. Harsh: I don’t believe in surprising someone in order to show love. If I’ve to gift Bharti, I tell her beforehand that I would buy this for you.
What’s the first gift you have got from each other?
Bharti: Iska bas chale toh mujhe roz gifts de. I remember he got me a bag worth ₹2 lakh. I would never buy it because main bahut kanjoos hoon. Harsh: It was on my first birthday, after we began dating and she got me a gold ‘Om’ pendant.
The best VDay memory?
Bharti: He doesn’t do those typical guy things. But last year on V-Day, we went on a drive and the car’s rear seat was full of flowers. But, later, he confessed that he didn’t plan to buy them. He had seen a kid selling flowers at a signal and he bought all of them.
Harsh: We’ve never done anything special for V-Day. But last year, since it was the last before wedding, for the first time, we planned a proper date. We went for shopping, had lunch, enjoyed hookah, drinks and then dinner.
