‘DDLJ ruined me…’

Producer Guneet Monga, who is known for films like The Lunchbox, Masaan and Gangs of Wasseypur, announced her wedding in true filmi style on Twitter.

Guneet, who will marry Sunny Kapoor on Monday, December 12, in Mumbai, narrates her love story:

‘DDLJ ruined me…

Like every girl growing up in the 90s, I too have been on a constant lookout for my Raj ever since I was 18. Anyone I dated, I ran to my friends to tell them this is it, I found my partner for the rest of my life.

Some even indulged me a couple of times, but mostly rolled their eyes and wanted to say, “Guneet, please just take your time”. I never wanted to take my time, my magical forever started from Day 1. I was ready to commit from Day 1!

Everyone would always tell me, at the right time the right person will come into my life, and this irritated me the most! Why on earth has my time not come? Ab toh chaalis saal hogaye, actually 39 but a round figure sounds better na.

And every time an extended family member would ask me, “Beta shaadi nahi ki“, I would reply, “Koi dhoond do, kal karloongi“, and they would have no answer. Just “Beta hum kahan se dhoondhein… tum toh film industry mein ho na“. Now that is also my fault.

Honestly, I have cursed my body, my intelligence, my way of talking, my education, my middle-class life and even my job designation to be able to find someone!

Wait, did I tell you, I have also tried missing the last Euro train but wahan pe door automatic shut hotey hain and no one keeps their hand out to pull you in! Haath kat jayenge behenon!

My dear girlfriends, can I tell you, when the time is right and when that person comes into your life, you just know it. When he shows you how much YOU mean to him. That kind of love is everything.

Aur phir meri real life ki picture main, mera real hero aagaya!

And while he is sure of me, this time I am in self-doubt. Really, you love me? Do you want to spend the rest of your life with me? Someone who is in the film industry, living in Bombay and half balding.

With tears in his eyes, Sunny said, “you are perfect and I am so lucky that you are mine and the universe made you wait for us!”

Today marks a year of our roka and we now count down to our wedding which is exactly seven days from now.

As cliche as it sounds, when the time is right, the universe makes it happen. I’ve found my Raj! Bade bade deshon mein chhoti chhoti baatein, hoti rehti hain…’

Just who is Sunny Kapoor?

His Instagram bio reads that he is a fashion entrepreneur of a shopping and retail brand called Meenakshi Creations and is a marathon runner in hibernation.
