During a conversation with IANS, the actress revealed, “We met because both of us were stepping in for other actors. So, from Bombay (Mumbai), we met in Delhi to perform and hardly spoke throughout. On our way back, we were seated next to each other. It was a 5 a.m. flight, so obviously the plan was to doze off. But we started talking and that was that.” Now isn’t that cute? Chaitanya proposed at a place called Cuckoo Club, which is a common place for performances in the city. Incidentally, they both share a common love for theatre. He said, “He wanted to do it on stage because that’s how we met — for a play. He had told me he has a new play, so I went to see that… But it was the proposal.” Also Read - Real Life 'Kaagaz'?

Chaitanya, who reportedly has a tattoo of Shweta’s name delivered a monologue in front of a room filled with theatre enthusiasts about the journey that led to the new journey that they’re about to take ahead. “They say you fall in love, and I fell hard, from about 36,000 feet! Up in the air, into her heart and she already had mine. Relations start from the ground upwards, mine started in the sky. We spoke about whales and the ocean and everything we know. She found me, and I found Nemo,” he said, adding that the wedding is expected to take place in Goa with only their closest friends and family in attendance.
