She said “jo sach hai woh sach hai”. That what she’s done is entirely her personal matter and really doesn’t need to be talked about by the public, or openly in front of the media. While she said that yes, they are public personalities, and their entire lives are in front of the media, this is their public space and nobody has permission to enter that space. She said that she was happy and proud of what she had done, because she did it for their happiness. That her family supported her through and through with this and they did not intend on hurting anyone’s sentiments. Having said that, she wasn’t budging from the fact that it is her decision and that’s what makes her happy.

 

 

She faced immense amount of backlash from Indians and Hindus across the board

The two really seemed to have found love within one another, and the world should really be happy for them

Because, look at that, wouldn’t you want to be this in love with someone?

Regardless of who chooses to follow whatever religion, it is their choice at the end of the day. What do you think of this heartwarming story of the triumph of love?
