Incidentally, it was not love at first sight for Shakti when he developed feelings for Neha. In fact, during the shooting of the serial, Shakti had been going through a rough patch post-breakup and Neha was the one who stood with him through all his difficult times. It was precisely at that moment when the duo realised that they were meant to be together. Shakti once recalled that period and mentioned that up till then, they had shared a platonic relationship. In his words:

“We realised we liked each other. Yet, it took me around a year to actually convey my feelings to her. We shared a platonic relationship till then.”

The one quality of Neha which won Shakti’s heart

Moreover, he was charmed with her bubbly persona that could easily do away with any hesitation and awkwardness for someone who met her for the first time. In his words:

“I am in love with Neha. I love spending time with her. Her sense of humour is what I like the most about her and, of course, her cuteness!”

After their dating speculations were rife in the media, people soon enough started to guess that they would walk down the aisle anytime soon. While that did not happen, nevertheless, the couple did have a secret roka ceremony with their family and friends. Thereafter, while the couple was all set to tie the knot by November 2016, they were hit with the realities of the infamous demonetization. Such unforeseen calamity made them retract their plans due to monetary difficulties. In an old interview back then, Shakti Arora had opened up on his marriage plans getting affected by demonetization and mentioned:

“It will take me a long time to exchange the old notes with the new ones. I have no idea when we will get married now. It's definitely not happening this year. I had pulled back money to pay to the wedding coordinators, food providers and other staff as I needed to give them a progress. Be that as it may, they are declining to take the old money now.”
