Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT - Monika Rawal Kukreja monika.rawal@htlive.com

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.
