Babu Bhaiya of superhit film series ‘Hera Pheri’, Paresh Rawal is one of the finest actors of the Bollywood. He showed variety in his acting by playing comedian as well as villain-centric roles in the Bollywood films. He has become 63 years old now. He was born on May 30, 1955, in Mumbai.
His upcoming film is ‘Sanju’ in which he is playing the role of Sanjay Dutt’s father i.e Sunil Dutt. It is about his professional life but how much you know about personal life? You will get shocked to know that he was married to the hottest wife in 1987. She was a former Miss India.
We are talking about Miss India 1979 Swaroop Sampat. They both met in 1975 for the first time. The couple has always been theatre enthusiasts and this is what connected them strong. Paresh saw Swaroop for the first time when they were in the college. He instantly told his friend that he is going to marry this girl which Swaroop chose to ignore.
Swaroop Sampat about her first meet said that:
“I was wearing a pink saree and I was handing out brochures. And Paresh walks in with his friend and he says, he is going to marry me. But you know he is so dumb, he didn’t talk to me for nearly a year.”
Swaroop didn’t notice Paresh during their first meet, but couldn’t take her eyes off him when she saw his performance at an intercollegiate play. Swaroop gushed:
“I saw him in a play, it was an intercollegiate play, and he was awesome. I mean to see Paresh Rawal on stage is something else. The intercollegiate competition was on, I was in another college, and this play comes on and Paresh is there. It was filled with violence and bad language. When the play got over, the whole audience was just sitting like that, because they don’t know what hit them. And then, everybody just got up and walked out.”
She went backstage to congratulate him for his brilliant performance and the couple hasn’t looked back since then. They got married in a very simple affair and blessed with two sons Anirudh and Aditya.
