Bollywood actress Vidya Balan in a new interview spoke about her love story with husband Siddharth Roy Kapur and revealed how Karan Johar played cupid in their relationship.

The Begum Jaan actress further stated she and Roy instantly hit off during their first meeting.

Speaking with Humans of Bombay, Balan stated, “Karan Johar has played Cupid in this relationship. He invited me to a party at his house, and I didn’t really know him, so I thought, ‘How sweet’. I didn’t really know most of the others, and I was a bit shy. And then, Siddharth walks in, and because we’d just watched the play together, we ended up having a chat. And that’s when something happened. Later, I got to know that Karan had wanted us to meet. This was an intentional invitation, and it worked.” ALSO READ: Karan Johar REVEALS He Played Cupid For Vidya Balan-Siddharth Roy Kapur; Filmmaker Says, ‘I Hosted Dinner For The Two’

She went on to state that it was during the shoot, when someone told Vidya that Siddharth was married, and she thought that was the end of that. But later, she found out that he was divorced. 

“It was one of those flash thoughts, it’s not something I wanted or chased or planned. But life was bringing us together a lot at that time,” the 44-year-old actress added.
