In an interaction with the Humans Of Bombay, Vidya averred, “Life was bringing us together a lot at that time. We ended up at a party together at Karan’s place. Karan has played Cupid in this relationship. He invited me to a party at his house and I was a bit [surprised] because I didn’t really know him. I [felt] how sweet.”
She further continued, “I went to his house and I didn’t really know most of the others. I was a bit shy and Siddharth walks in and because we had just watched [a] play together, we ended up having a chat. That’s when probably something happened that night. Later of course, I got to know that Karan had wanted us to meet. This was an intentional invitation. And it worked.”
