Speaking about sharing their lives as equal partners, Nakuul Mehta said, “When we started dating, she used to drop me home, and then she used to drive home. Whoever had the money on the particular date used to pay. In unspoken ways, Jankee has taught him to be an equal partner.” Nakuul Mehta expressed that when he first met Jankee, he knew that if he marries her, his life would be “sorted.”

Although the actor is very close to his wife, he shared that he has never cried in front of Jankee

Nakuul revealed, “I internalized my failures. My wife, Jankee, is the person closest to me, yet I couldn’t share my bad day with her”. Nakuul and Jankee married in 2012. In 2021, they welcomed their first child, a son named Sufi.

Nakuul Mehta gained a lot of recognition recently for his roles in Bade Achhe Lagte Hain’s second and third seasons. In the interview, Nakuul also spoke about his role as Ram Kapoor, whom he believes was a feminist character. “In the show, Ram Kapoor portrays a character with feminist values, and I believe that much of it reflects the lessons I’ve learned, which I integrate into my own characters.”

In 2012, Nakuul Mehta made his acting debut as Aditya Kumar in the popular show Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara. He rose to prominence after playing Shivaay Singh Oberoi in Ishqbaaaz. He has also been part of web shows like Never Kiss Your Best Friend.
