Our initiative Love Actually is a photo series that captures the most beautiful moments between couples in picturesque locations across Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai. It features couples who actively seek ideas and inspiration from WeddingSutra as they celebrate their eternal journey together.
Here’s inspiration to hit the gym. Popular television actress Navina Bole better known as ‘Tia Kapoor’ on Star Plus daily Ishqbaaaz noticed fellow actor Karran Jeet staring at her in the gym, “but we never really spoke,” she says. However, it was just a matter of time before they cheekily said hello to each other and started talking. It took Navina a little while to realize that Karran had a massive crush on her, “He even loved following my daily soap,” she grins.
But Karran was being wary. He’d just come out of a bad relationship and wasn’t ready to jump into a new one. “Our relationship grew gradually,” Navina explains, “We eventually became the best of friends. When he confessed that he was not open to the idea of a relationship because of his bad experience, I didn’t want to pressurize him.”
Leaving it to destiny did the trick. After three months of knowing each other, they both realized this was more than a friendship. Karran was shy and so Navina decided to gently suggest a step forward, “It was not a formal proposal but I thought that we could give this a try.” There was no looking back! “He is the best thing that happened to me!” she smiles.
Navina’s all about the thoughtful gestures and cherishes Karran’s reaction to a very special birthday present, “I had a box customized for him with messages from his near and dear ones. The cover of the box was inscribed with the name ‘Gooey’, his pet and the apple of his eye. I remember, he was so overwhelmed and happy when he got it. It was truly a magical moment for me.”
With the wedding just a month away, the lovely couple is busy putting finishing touches to their wedding decor and dividing responsibilities equally between both families.
With the lovely actress’s rigorous shoot schedules, the pre-wedding shoot at Jade Garden in Worli was the perfect mini-getaway for the lovebirds who got to spend some quality time together. “It was a wonderful shoot and very well- coordinated. What made it extra special was that it was on Valentine’s Day! And let’s not forget that hanging out on the expansive lawns and lush greenery at the venue made everything seem calm and relaxed.”
And the couple adored photographer Dev Purbiya. “He was so much fun to shoot with,” Navina enthuses, “He got the best candid moments between us. Special shout out to make up artist Kajol Paswwan too who did a fabulous job and made us both look simply beautiful!”
As they looked into each other’s eyes, fingers entwined, each touching the other’s platinum love bands, Navina said, “Our relationship is eternal and platinum love bands are beautiful proof of this. We really thank WeddingSutra for such a lovely experience.”
WeddingSutra wishes Navina and her beau Karran all the love and happiness forever.
