She had tried this in the past… She is looking at this photo, and I come home and see the picture and say ‘she is quite pretty’. Next thing I know is that she is telling me you have to meet her. I made a deal with her. I told her, I will go and meet this girl but on the condition that you will stop all this. She was like, OK done.”

The first thing I noticed was that she was wearing flat chappals, simple linen pants, simple top, her hair tied up loosely with that stick and no make up. I was like waah confidence ki daat deni padegi. She is not dressed up, she just came and sat in front of me and said, hi, sorry I am 10 min late.”


Vivek Oberoi claims pulling up a filmy prank to woo Priyanka Alva

He further recalled pulling off a totally filmy prank to impress his ladylove. In his words:

“So next day, I rented a convertible, put a nice jacket one, 11 am in the morning I was there. There she was, completely shocked to see me, and I said let’s go for a drive, and we took off and it was a day of just conversation and I don’t know what happened. At the end of the day, I dropped her home and I told her ‘Look, you are a lady, it’s your privilege to decide yes or no but if I am ever in my life going to get married its going to be with you. If I don’t marry you, I won’t get married at all. Rest is up to you. You take your time and decide’. And then I made my exit and that was it.”
