Pulkit Samrat, whose big ticket to fame was Ekta Kapoor's "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi", married longtime girlfriend Shweta Rohira on 3 November in Goa.
Rohira, who is Salman Khan's rakhi sister, was a freelance journalist when she first met Samrat. Elaborating on their love story, the "Fukrey" actor told Zoom TV that his relationship with Rohira is not the first, but is definitely the last.
"She is a Sindhi girl from Mumbai who is running her own boutique, but when we first met, she was a freelance journalist who had come to interview me while I was doing Kyunki... We became friends and then started seeing each other. Marriage is only a certificate. We are already married for life," he said.
Attended by Salman and his family, the actor went on to narrate the story of how his life-partner went on to become the superstar's sister. As a kid, Rohira apparently gate-crashed "Kick" actor's house and said she would want to tie a rakhi.
"Bhai came down and asked her, 'Are you serious about tying a rakhi?' His only condition was if you want to tie a rakhi, you will have to tie it for life, as he believes in keeping relationships going. He said to her, 'If you can't do that, don't do it.' Since then, she ties him a rakhi every year," revealed the groom.
