Well, that was reel life. We further asked Vidyut about his first memories of love and romance in real life. He says, “I remember there was this girl whom I really liked. I was about 19. She used to live in Lucknow. And in those days, you had to travel by train. So, I took a train and reached Delhi station, and told her that I coming.”
He continues, “There were only landlines in those days. And dads used to sit next to landlines only. I called and told her when I crossed Delhi. Then, I reached Lucknow station and every time I dialled her number, her father picked up the phone.”
“Finally, I told the father if I could speak to the girl and he said she is not there,” he reveals. “I returned without meeting her.”
But that was not the end. Vidyut says, “I fell in love with her even more after that.” AWWWW!
