Actress Kim Sharma’s Spanish boyfriend, musician Carlos Marin, proposed to her when she least expected it. Carlos reached her doorstep on the afternoon of Valentine’s Day and took her shopping for a ring.
“I was not expecting it,” says Kim. I was at home on V Day and planned to spend the day alone or with a spinster friend. I spoke to Carlos a day before and he said he’d be working on his concert. I was stunned when he landed at my doorstep. The ring was an added delight to his visit.”
The couple met at an airport and instantly hit it off. “We looked at each other and that was it. Incidentally, we sat next to each other in the flight, and spoke throughout. We exchanged numbers, but never thought we’d end up being where we are today,” says Kim. “One doesn’t realise when a relationship gets so strong.”
Although happily engaged, Kim says a wedding is not on the cards anytime soon. “I want to be with him all my life, but a wedding will not happen just yet. Eventually, yes.”
The actress adds, “Being career oriented people, I don’t think our relationship will ever come in the way of our work.”
Asked where the duo plan to settle down, Kim replies, “It will be both in India and Spain. We love the fact that we are from different cultures. He loves India and its ethnicity. The cultural difference gives a broader aspect to our relationship!”
Ask her about the persistent rumours linking her to cricketer Yuvraj Singh and she responds, “Do I even need to say anything?”
