Rupali revealed her hubby, Ashwin never formally said ‘I Love You’

In one of her earlier interviews with ETimes, Rupali Ganguly shared anecdotes about her real-life love story with husband, Ashwin. The actress talked about their first meeting and remembered how the latter saw her dressed as a 60-year-old lady for one of her shoots. This look of hers extracted an unusual compliment from him, as Ashwin wanted to grow old with Rupali. Adding how there wasn’t really a formal ‘I love you’ moment for them, she said:

“And then I was dressed up as a 60-year-old, as a wife. Suddenly, when I came out as a 60-year-old with white hair and everything, the first line Ashwin said was I wouldn’t mind getting old with someone like you. There was never ‘I Love You’. We directly got married.”
