TV couple Tanaaz and Bhakhtyar Irani's romance is always talked about. The couple who are married for the past 14 years now has kept the spark alive, or at least the latest incident suggests so. The couple was holidaying in Phuket when the Bhakhtyar decided to get Tanaaz's face inked on his back to fulfill his long-standing wish.
Talking to Bombay Times Bhaktyar said, “Getting Tannaz’s face inked on my body has been a long-standing wish. In fact, when I was in college, I had decided that I would get a tattoo of my wife whenever I get married. However, till now, I never got a chance to do it. We didn’t even go on a honeymoon. So, recently, when we suddenly decided to go on a trip, I decided to fulfill my dream. It took seven hours for the tattoo to be completed and the pain was unbearable. I had tears in my eyes and for the first time, I hated Tannaz’s curly mop and wished she was bald (laughs!). The machine was literally grazing my body, as the tattoo was too intricate and detailed.”
However Tannaz reaction was quite shocking on this she mentioned, “He has my name on his calf and our kids’ names Zeus and Zara on his arm, but the latest tattoo left me shocked. The real me obviously looks better. But it’s interesting to see how my face becomes wider when he flexes his muscles and narrow when he contracts them. He has me delivering different expressions all the time on his back (laughs!).”
She confesses, "After years of marriage, couples often forget about romance and women are generally expected to keep it alive. However, in my case, Bhakhtyar has taken the complete onus of it. He is a die-hard filmi romantic. He still craves for my attention and sulks if I don’t spend time with him."
On revealing what makes their bond stronger Bhaktyar says, “After having children, women tend to focus solely on their upbringing. But we make sure that after following up with our children’s schedules, we make time for each other. We make a conscious effort to keep the spark alive. I have always been passionate about my relationship, wife and kids. I am still very possessive about Tannaz and get angry when she doesn’t give me enough time.”
Tannaz also agrees with him as she went on saying, “We get caught up with mundane stuff and often put romance on the back seat. But I would give full marks to Bhakhtyar for his efforts. He is an emotional person and still writes long letters to me after watching a romantic film or a movie on marriage. I am not overly romantic, so it has taken years of conditioning to understand his romantic side. He even tells the kids that though I am their mother, I am his wife first.”
