It was Ragini who confessed her feelings to Nain and the lad realised it later. But once they knew about their feelings for each other and became sure of their love, the two became inseparable. Recently, the duo visited the famous Lal Baugh's Ganpati together thereby putting all the speculations regarding their relationship status to rest. Ragini claims that the credit for her glowing skin and beauty that she has been receiving compliments for, recently, goes to Yashdeep. He takes care of her diet and exercise routine. Parul finally confesses it loud and clear. We can just hear Yash everywhere.
We caught up with a blushing Ragini and got her to spill the beans about her relationship.
How did you guys first meet? How long have you guys been dating?
I met Yash at the inaugural episode of Perfect Bride, a reality show that he has participated in. The episode had the contestants being introduced to the viewers and I was performing in that episode. We met for the first time during this shoot and exchanged customary greetings. Months later, in December, I met him at Oberoi mall and that is when things actually kick started between us. We started calling each other and love blossomed eventually. It's been four months of courtship.
In a time when most actors try to keep their relationship under wraps, you have come out in the open and admitted to it. What made you take this step?
I have never believed in hiding my relationship status. If I am dating someone the world will come to know of that special someone. I was quiet till recently as we were just exploring our relationship and when we were sure of our feelings, we came out in the open. It wasn't a concious decision to announce it during our visit to ganpati at Lal Baugh, but it was destined to happen. I was asked to go for darshan by a channel and I thought of taking Yash along as I wanted Ganpati to bless both of us. Naveen bhaiyya and his wife along with Vivek bhaiyya and his wife too accompanied us. One has to be sure of his/her relationship before announcing it to the world.
Did you watch Yashdeep in Perfect Bride? What did you think of him?
Oh! yes, I did follow the show. He came across as a very sorted and refined person to me. The best thing about him is that he is a mature guy and still harbours a kid inside him. But he knows how to react to a situation and circumstance. He is very caring and loving.
Who is the romantic between the two of you?
Both of us are equally romantic. We love going on long drives and dinners. He has to just hear my voice on phone to know what emotions I am going through. If I am tired or upset, he will come to meet me on the sets and take me on a long drive followed by a cozy dinner. I have started watching movies because of Yash. I was never a movie buff, but he used to take me to every movie because it would help me as an actor.
What’s the best and most annoying quality in Yashdeep?
His only weakness is that he is short-tempered. He is a perfect boyfriend and a partner any girl can dream of. If he is upset he won't take my calls and then I will have to pamper and pacify him. Hi best quality is that he is very caring and loving.
Any memorable incident that you would like to share?
I would like to confess that I had initiated this relationship. I always used to tease him by saying 'I love you' which he would always ignore. Finally one day, on our way back home from dinner, he confessed his feelings and for the first time said those three magical words. Its been four months of our courtship and never for once he has addressed me by my real name. I have been rechristened by him as baby (laughs).
What does Yashdeep think of you as an actress?
He thinks I am perfect (laughs). Yash feels that I am a complete actress.
Do you give him any advice about acting as he too is venturing in to the same profession?
Ironically, he is better than me at this. He knows his shortcomings and strengths already as an actor. Infact, he advises me too. Yash easily points out the scenes where he thinks I have erred. And watching the scenes, I have no choice but to agree with him as he is right in what he says.
What according to you is the foundation of a strong relationship?
Trust, love and ability to nurture the relationship.
Will you become the perfect bride in real life anytime soon?
(laughs) That's a tricky question. Our respective families know about us but it's still time to solemnise the relationship. We haven't planned marriage as yet.
