Actress Kajal Aggarwal has begun a new phase of her life this year as she tied the nuptial knot with her long-time boyfriend Gautam Kitchlu. Kajal and Gautam got married on October 30 at the Taj Hotel, Mumbai in the presence of family members and close friends. Gautam is an entrepreneur and owns an interior designing company that sells furniture and décor items.
Kajal’s wedding came as surprise to her fans as the actress never talked about her relationship status in the past. And now, when she is married, she has opened up about her lesser-known love story. Gautam and Kajal were friends for 7 years and dated each other for 3 years before getting married. The couple met through common friends a decade ago. Kajal revealed that they used to see each other quite often, but during the pandemic, things became hard and that’s when they realized that they want to spend their lives with each other. Kajal says, “Whether it was a social party or an important professional endeavour, the other one would always show up. So, amidst the lockdown, when we didn’t see each other for a few weeks—at best, we would catch a glimpse behind a mask at a grocery store—we realised that we wanted to be together.”

She further shared details about Gautam’s proposal to her. She said, “Gautam is understated when it comes to romance. He’s not the filmy sort, and I am grateful for it because I have enough of that in my films. So, it wasn’t a proposal with all of the jazz, but it was an extremely heartfelt, emotional conversation between us. He was so authentic about his feelings and the way he expressed how he wanted to have a future with me; I couldn’t be more sure about spending my life with him!”
Gautam met Kajal’s parents in April 2020. The couple got engaged in June during a small ceremony at their home.
