New Delhi: Vidhu Vinod Chopra's latest film 12th Fail, featuring Vikrant Massey, is based on the love story of IPS officer Manoj Sharma and IRS officer Shraddha Joshi.
Recently, the couple opened up about their love story.
Based on Anurag Pathak's bestselling novel with the same title, the movie has performed successfully in theatres.
According to media reports, Manoj expressed his firm belief that “one cannot live without love.”.
When he discovered love with his current wife, Shraddha, he was determined to present himself as the ideal life partner for her.
Despite the academic demands, Manoj dedicated his efforts to winning Shraddha's affection.
They first crossed paths at a UPSC coaching centre in Delhi's Mukherjee Nagar.
A teacher at the institute had suggested that Shraddha meet Manoj due to her interest in Hindi literature.
Recalling the moment of their introduction, Manoj revealed that he was captivated by Shraddha's name alone.
He said, “Ek toh naam Shraddha, uppar se sheher Almora (one, she is Shraddha, and second, she comes from a city called Almora).
That day only, I felt that there was something special about her.” In time, he developed feelings for her and confessed them to her.
However, she declined to reciprocate, saying, "Are you mad?"
But Manoj persisted, determined to convince Shraddha that he was the ideal partner for her. (UNI)
