The theme of the engagement ceremony was all-white with elegant decorations and somber tones. Rajkumar Rao looked dashing in a stylish white suit while Patralekhaa beamed in a white and silver gown, with a long train and a slit.
The couple has kept their relationship private and out of the eyes of the public but has never backed down from expressing their love for each other. Patralekhaa talked about her love story openly in 2019 while sharing an instance from their relationship.
In a post uploaded by Humans of Bombay in 2019, she said, “He’d often go out of his way for me. Once, he was running late to see me, so he stopped the cab near the airport and ran all the way to Juhu! Not only that, but when we were earning very little, he surprised me with my favorite bag, which was ridiculously expensive! Years later, when we were in London, someone stole it! I remember calling him, sobbing, while he tried to calm me down. For me, the bag was all about the memories – he had bought it for me when he didn’t have much. That meant so much to me! Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realise how lucky I am to have him.”
