In fact, in his debut film ‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ where he is seen awestruck looking at the actress, Ameesha Patel at the traffic signal in the second half of the film, it is said to be inspired by their real life story. After dating for a year, the superstar who gained immense love and fame from the audience right after his debut, tied the knot with Sussanne… while many of his female fans were shattered with his decisions.

But, their story couldn’t find the pace for a long time as they none of them could find the courage to talk about their feelings with each other. While, she had a crush on him she kept ignoring the Andhadhun actor for a year. Whereas, the actor was a complete shy boy who used to head home as soon as the class used to end. Post a year, the duo discovered about their feelings and soon started dating each other following by their marriage in 2008 and are now the proud parents of two kids. Recently, the amount of love, care, support and strength that he showed for Tahira to overcome a deadly illness… inspired many of their bond and strong relationship.
