Actor Rajkummar Rao has taken to social media to share a lovely birthday wish for his lady love Patralekhaa. The actress is celebrating her 29th birthday today, on February 20 and her boyfriend is of course, on the seventh sky. The Stree star posted a beautiful picture of Patralekhaa calling her ‘most awesome girl’. He wrote in the caption, “It’s a special day for the most awesome girl. Happy birthday to the beautiful and kind @patralekhaa. May your special day and everyday that comes hereafter be filled with happiness and joyous moments .❤😘🤗” (sic)

Earlier, he wished Valentine’s Day to the actress in another adorable post. Rajkummar posted a stylish photo of himself posing with his girl and wrote, “Happy Valentine’s day @patralekhaa. Thank you for being in my life and for making it so beautiful. Here’s to more travel, films, fun, friendship & unlimited & unconditional love ❤️” (sic)

Together, Rajkummar and Patralekhaa make for one of the most loved Bollywood couples. They have been dating each other for over eight years now. In a heartfelt interview recently, the two stars opened up about their love story. Talking to Bombay Times, they revealed all about their first meeting, when the cupid struck and how content they feel in each other’s presence now.

Patralekhaa was quoted by the daily saying, “I saw him for the first time in LSD. I thought the weird guy he played was actually what he was like. My perception of him was tarnished! He told me later, that he first saw me in an ad & thought, ‘I’m going to marry her.’ It was so ironic! Once we began working together–it was magic. The kind of passion he had was powerful & I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then!”

The kind of passion he had was powerful & I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then! We spoke about our work, love for cinema, passions… I saw him through his struggles, never giving up. How could we not fall for each other? We didn’t officially go on dates, but we’d go for drives, movies, or just sit at home. We accompanied each other for auditions, just for support. All we needed was that understanding. He’d often go out of his way for me. Once he was late to see me, so he ran all the way from the airport to Juhu! Not only that, but when we weren’t earning much, he gifted me my favorite bag–it was so expensive! Years later, someone stole it in London! I called him sobbing–for me, it was about the memories. He’d bought it for me when he didn’t have much. Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realise how lucky I am for him. And the best part is, he always says he’s the lucky one. Isn’t that what a relationship needs? To remind each other how grateful we are? He told me once that after I met his mom, she said, ‘I have a feeling she’s the last one I’m meeting.’ She was right–we’ve been together for 8 years. We’re equals–when an article said, ‘Rajkumar with his girlfriend, Patralekhaa’, he retweeted–‘Patralekhaa with her boyfriend Rajkumar.’ I can tell you this, when you find the one–through the fights, hurdles & chaos, you should never forget to let them know you love them. It doesn’t have to be with expensive gifts & dates–it can simply be with the way you hold them while they need it & when they don’t. For us, we don’t know what the future holds, but this, being together, is enough.” __ HoB with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga bring you unexpected & heartwarming love stories which show that love is love & the world would be a better place if we #LetLoveBe
