Vidya Balan is one of the leading actresses in Bollywood who has surprised us by portraying brilliant strong female characters time and again, and she’s considered as one of the pioneering female figures in the industry to shun body image issues. Her husband, Siddharth Roy Kapoor, works on the other side of film making – the marketing and production side. Their love story started by chance when they first met at the back stage of an award ceremony. Even though she works in front of the camera and he works from behind, they bonded instantly.
Their first date happened when the Cupid of Bollywood, Karan Johar, noticed a spark between them and took the initiative to arrange a date for them. Over time they got serious with each other and finally in 2012 Siddharth proposed to Vidya and she agreed! However, their love story was not a rosy one.
Vidya’s family was apprehensive of their union, because Siddharth had been married twice. Even for Vidya the decision of getting married at the peak of her career was a difficult choice to make. But she was determined to face every challenge, in her career or from her family, to be with the one she loved. So on 14th December, 2012 Vidya and Siddharth got married in a private ceremony with both North Indian and South Indian rituals.
Six years later they are doing great in their careers and giving couple goals for every working married couple out there.
