"Mana and I had been seeing each other for nine years before marriage, and whenever my mom brought up the topic of marriage, I would tell her, ‘You know I am seeing someone. If I marry someone else, I will ruin the lives of two girls. So it is better that I don’t marry. I won’t go against you, but I also won’t marry.'"

When Suniel Shetty said he fell for Mana the minute he saw her

Earlier, in a conversation on Ranveer Allahbadia's podcast, Suniel Shetty talked about falling for his wife, Mana Shetty. He revealed that it was love at first sight for him. However, the journey to becoming one forever wasn't easy. He discussed how his parents were strictly against their marriage, but Mana's parents loved the actor. In his words:

"I fell in love with her the minute I saw her. But I used to be called the gunda because I used to have a bike, long hair and that physique and women around me all the time, friends, but you know how it is… and what the impression is when it goes out. I used to meet Mana at four o’clock in the morning on Christmas and New Year but she didn’t once complain. The minute we met, you know, everything about her seemed so caring and so loving. One year, two years, three years, four years and nine years and my parents kept saying no. Her parents loved me from day one, we got along. Her mom and me were a riot together."
