Rajkummar Rao shares a special message on his 'most awesome girl' Patralekhaa's birthday
Rajkummar Rao and Patralekhaa’s love life has been like an open book. The duo has never shied away from confessing their love for each other either through social media posts or media interactions. The pair, who have been together for 5 long years, even shared the screen space on Hansal Mehta’s Citylights in 2014. As Patralekhaa rang in her 29th on Wednesday, the Newton actor decided to make it special by sharing the sweetest message for her.
The actor posted a stunning picture of his lady-love and called her ‘the most awesome girl’. “Happy birthday my most beautiful and kindest,” he wrote alongside his post and also added a heart, kiss and hug emojis. The picture shows her donning a furry jacket and looking at herself in the mirror. She is also seen carrying a black studded sling bag. Needless to say, the post must have made the birthday-girl’s day! Check it out below.
Not very long ago, a post shared by Humans of Bombay revealed the couple’s love story. In the post, Patralekhaa was quoted as saying that she saw him for the first time in Love Sex Aur Dhokha and thought the weird guy he played was actually what he was like. But once the two started working together, ‘it was magic’ for her.

He told me later, that he first saw me in an ad & thought, ‘I’m going to marry her.’ It was so ironic! Once we began working together–it was magic. The kind of passion he had was powerful & I couldn’t respect him any more than I did then! We spoke about our work, love for cinema, passions… I saw him through his struggles, never giving up. How could we not fall for each other? We didn’t officially go on dates, but we’d go for drives, movies, or just sit at home. We accompanied each other for auditions, just for support. All we needed was that understanding. He’d often go out of his way for me. Once he was late to see me, so he ran all the way from the airport to Juhu! Not only that, but when we weren’t earning much, he gifted me my favorite bag–it was so expensive! Years later, someone stole it in London! I called him sobbing–for me, it was about the memories. He’d bought it for me when he didn’t have much. Later, at our hotel, the exact same bag was waiting for me. These little things make me realise how lucky I am for him. And the best part is, he always says he’s the lucky one. Isn’t that what a relationship needs? To remind each other how grateful we are? He told me once that after I met his mom, she said, ‘I have a feeling she’s the last one I’m meeting.’ She was right–we’ve been together for 8 years. We’re equals–when an article said, ‘Rajkumar with his girlfriend, Patralekhaa’, he retweeted–‘Patralekhaa with her boyfriend Rajkumar.’ I can tell you this, when you find the one–through the fights, hurdles & chaos, you should never forget to let them know you love them. It doesn’t have to be with expensive gifts & dates–it can simply be with the way you hold them while they need it & when they don’t. For us, we don’t know what the future holds, but this, being together, is enough.” __ HoB with Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga bring you unexpected & heartwarming love stories which show that love is love & the world would be a better place if we #LetLoveBe
When asked if marriage is on the cards, Rajkummar, in a recent interview, said that marriage will definitely happen but not right now as both of them are busy focusing on their respective careers.
