I wouldn’t call it dating, we started interacting and started a friendship: Yami Gautam on her love story with husband Aditya Dhar


Yami Gautam gave her fans a pleasant surprise by announcing her wedding on June 4 in Himachal Pradesh. She tied the knot with her Uri: The Surgical Strike director Aditya Dhar in an intimate ceremony in presence of family members. A month after her traditional pahadi wedding, Yami opened up about her love story with Aditya. 

Talking to a leading daily, Yami told, "I’d say the start was during the promotion of Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019). That’s when we started talking. I wouldn’t call it dating. But yeah, that was a time when we started interacting with each other and started a friendship."

Yami also spoke about what made her realise that Aditya is the right person for her. She said, "You just know it in your gut. It’s not something that you can really describe. You just know it. When you start understanding the person’s value system, and what family he belongs to. You don’t have to have similarities or share common things in your interests, but have similarities in your value system and in your ethics. And we share that a lot. I have a lot of respect for Aditya and I had a lot of respect for him as a professional and as a person. I respect him for who he is."

For the wedding, Yami wore her mother's red saree, a pahadi nath and dupatta that her maternal grandmother kept for her. The actress did her own makeup whereas her sister Surilie Gautam did her hair.
