Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan - The open secret opens up officially

Wonder if brother Saif Ali Khan going gaga over his relationship with Bebo gave some boost and kick to Soha to get candid about her affair too!!!Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan’s love affair had always been an open secret. Thoguh the couple never denied their linkup, they never officially admitted it. However, recently the duo felt that there was no point in denying a known fact anymore and so, the two came out candid on their relationship when they were spotted together during the Delhi Couture Week.

Explaining why they chose to open up their affair now, Khemu said that they were not hiding their relationship earlier on either. “It just didn’t make sense to talk about it until we were sure of our feelings. When people were speculating about our relationship we were just hanging out together. We did two films together but we weren’t in a relationship then.”

“Now we’re sure of one another. We’re both private persons. Relationships are complicated. They need space to grow. In any case, I am not the kind to wear my heart on my sleeve,” he added.

Kunal admits to have met Soha’s family twice. He says, “I was in Delhi, so I met them. I’m a big fan of both Sharmila Tagoreji and Pataudi Saab. They represent the pinnacle of the two religions of our country: cinema and cricket.” Not to be left out, Soha has also met Kunal’s parents. “She comes home for dinner sometimes. I told them about Soha. And they left it at that.”

However, he stresses on the fact that marriage is not on their cards right now. “I am not saying no to marriage. But I don’t know about the future. I don’t plan beyond the next two days. I didn’t plan my career. At the moment, I’ve signed no new films.

It’s very important for an actor to be associated with films that will get completed and released. Recently, recession had put a lot of actors out of work. It’s better to be honest about our work.

Both Soha and I need to focus on our careers. I got to do Zakhm when I was a child. I don’t know if I’d ever get a role like that again.”

Soha, too, candidly admitted her relationship and said, “I am seeing a wonderful actor called Kunal Khemu. And he is lovely. It’s not a secret, but it’s not something that I am going around announcing either. You know, we both are young and both are in films, both are exploring films, and we enjoy spending time together. I feel life is incomplete without having someone to share it with. Your happiness is doubled and your sadness, halved, when you share it with someone. It really helps in both situations - happy and sad.”
