Shubhi Mehta, one of the ‘Chak De!’ India girls recently got married in Delhi, and her ‘Chak De!’ India co-stars came to attend her wedding. Shubhi married fellow experiential educator Apoorv Bajpai, and they are now based in Gurgaon.
Telling us their love story, she says, “We met at a conclave for educators in Bangalore in 2014. We met a couple of weeks after the conclave and while we were both interested in each other, we wanted different things in our lives at that point and decided it was best to just stay friends. Apoorv then left for an experiential life-skills learning camp to Andaman after we, sort of, parted ways. After a few days he called to tell me that he knew that I was the one for him and that had to be the most romantic thing I had ever heard.”
She informs that though her husband had seen ‘Chak De!,’ he couldn’t place her exactly in the film when they met and his friend had to tell him about her endeavours on the big screen. The newly-weds are planning a trip to the US this summer for their honeymoon.
