The actor went on to add that he never had the time to fall in love again. It just like coincidentally happened and he just went with the flow. “That’s why when you ask me what is love? or chasing love anything of that sort, so for me you see I’m an artist, and as I have said that it’s all about energy. When I paint it is cosmic for me it’s divine for me, so anything that has good energy is God for me and you don’t Chase God it just happens to you,” Bapat explained.
