I’ll buy you a drink”. Neha remembers that when they met, Kunal was wearing a cap and reading glasses and she couldn’t see his face properly. They sat at a corner table and talked for 3 hours. For Kunal, it was love at first sight. For the next 9 days that Kunal was in Delhi, they spent every day together. At the end of his India trip, Kunal was clear that he wanted to take their relationship forward. He asked Neha to come to LA and 3 weeks later, Neha was in LA.
