He also shared the story of their first meeting while shooting a commercial.
He said: “We had hung out for a few months and I remember, one day I sent her [Anushka] this message. ‘You know, when I used to be single, I used to do this and that…’
“She’s like ‘What do you mean you used to be?’
“I had already decided in my mind and heart that we were dating. That was again a little awkward.”
