After the engagement ceremony, the wedding invitation of the two also did rounds on social media.

Rajkummar and Patralekhaa first met during an ad shoot and have been dating since then.

Speaking to Humans of Bombay in 2019, Patralekhaa had opened up about her relationship with Rajkummar. She said, “I saw him for the first time in LSD. I thought the weird guy he played was actually what he was like. My perception of him was tarnished! He told me later, that he first saw me in an ad & thought, ‘I’m going to marry her.’ It was so ironic!”
