Hippie knew me through Instagram and wanted me to act in one of his short films hence he sent me a message and I accepted to meet him to discuss the film(I didn’t agree to do the film, btw). I went to meet him in Cafe Coffee Day. When I saw him I was perplexed because he had no mustache but beard(He later told me he did a character called Wazid in a short Film). This was in May, 2016.
We met twice to discuss the film he thought he’d change my mind. I was hesitant about the film, but we discussed a lot of personal things and relationships. We talked like we’d known each other for years.
I have an Instagram group that I regularly met back then and Hippie said he’d like to meet ’em and I was so unsure, I was like beda, yaake sumne. But then Hippie doesn’t give up easy, so he met my “Awesome Club”, that’s what we call our group and Hippie got along pretty well with everyone.
We hung out often. Once when we were at Hippie’s place watching Bajirao Mastani, I think, we were sitting so close and cozy, he kissed my hand and I was pleasantly surprised and happy. That night after movie, we were in the parking lot and I must have said “bye” a hundred times but didn’t leave. We for some reason ended up on the Terrace and yeah, there was our first kiss. Devre, I was in heaven!
It was already September when we were inseparable. We sat at our usual hang-out discussing where this was all going because few days before this discussion, I’d ignored Hippie. Frankly I was ignoring him knowingly, scared of the on-goings. I didn’t know if this was a serious relationship and if it was, where would it end. He made major attempts to meet me, we did at a Friend’s birthday dinner( PS He had made up his mind to stay away from me after having met me at The Dinner, thankfully things changed because of a phone conversation we had the next day). Coming back to the discussion we were having at our hang-out place: I told him if this relationship isn’t gonna see Marriage then I won’t be willing to go on. And to my surprise, he said he felt the same.
