Besides all the chaos and drama at the current season of the reality TV show, Bigg Boss, fans are also geared up and swoon over the dreamy romance between Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla. Rubina and Abhinav got acquainted back when they were shooting for the TV show, Chhoti Bahu. At this point in time, they did not engage with each other in any romantic sense. Rubina was instead involved with the Chhoti Bahu’s lead, Avinash Sachdev, who she later broke up with after she caught him in an affair. The spark between Rubina and Abhinav began when they met during a mutual friend’s Ganpati, where he fell head over heels in love with her.
Here’s Abhinav talking about what attracted him to Rubina during a candid interview with Times of India: “I met Rubina at a friend’s house during Ganpati last year. Let me be honest – I checked her out as she looked resplendent in a sari. We had known each other for a year and a half, but started dating only a few months back. We had also worked together earlier in Chhoti Bahu, but didn’t interact much back then. What got us together is the fact that we are both thinkers, hardcore travelers and fitness freaks. It’s always good to be with someone who adds value to your life, and she inspires me. What’s attractive about her is that she is pretty and dignified.”
Here’s what Rubina said happened next: “It all started with a photo shoot. He commented on one of my pictures–will you give me the privilege to shoot you? And I was wondering, whos this guy?” One photo shoot, led to the next, things getting steamy, and then the two started dating. Rubina revealed that she approached Abhinav for a relationship.
As Abhinav mentioned, the couple are fitness freaks, travel junkies, and talented photographers. As a photographer, his favorite muse is none other than Rubina herself. Check out some of her bikini pics that he shot.
