But as reality holds it, both Sakshi and Mahendra’s fathers worked at MECON Ranchi and the two families were quite close. After a while, the Rawats shifted to Dehradun and the two children had to part their ways only to meet each other again and write a tale of love together.

It was then that the two collided again, after almost a decade.
Sakshi’s manager Yudhajit Dutta introduced the two to each other and all smitten by Sakshi’s beauty, Mahendra asked for her number from Yudhajit and texted her several times.
