Why The Secrecy About The Wedding, Rajkummar Rao?



Rajkummar Rao and patralekha

Rajkummar Rao was dating the Bengali  actress  Patralekhaa  Paul  from the time when he was Rajkumar  Yadav. They were a  couple before their careers took off and were as good as married for all practical purposes.

 Once when I  asked  Rajkummar Rao (this was when he spelt his  name  with one ‘m’) when  he  intended   to marry Patralekhaa and he  said, “No marriage for a long time. She has just started her career. And I am not ready for the institution of marriage. I respect the institution. But it’s not for me. We are happy to be together.”

 When  I had asked him how they met Rajkummar Rao had said, “She is a wonderful girl and I didn’t have to  pretend  to be  smart and  witty  to  win her.  I  was just being myself. Our relationship grew with time and it was a very organic process for us to fall for each other. We took around a year to know each other before we started dating.”

  When  asked  about marriage more recently, Rajkummar Rao had  said, “ Of course we’ll get married eventually . But we haven’t given this matter that much thought. Marriage would be just an extension of our relationship. We’ve been together  for many  years. We  don’t talk about  marriage. We don’t see the need. When we do we will get married. I  do believe in the institution of marriage. And we will get married when we are ready.”

Well, the  time to get married is finally here. Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa will tie  the knot today Monday October  15 at a  private  function in Chandigarh attended  only by  the bride  and groom’s immediate  family and  close friends.

The couple  wanted to wait for  Patralekhaa’s career  to take off  before  getting married. They decided  not to wait any longer. We wish the couple many more  years  of bliss togetherness. But I can’t help wondering  about the  unnecessary  mystery about the wedding. For a couple that’s always been open  about their relationship, why the  sudden secrecy?
