Actor Rubina Dilaik, who’s in a committed relationship with actor Abhinav Shukla , says the reason why they share a close bond is that they’re travellers at heart. “We both love to explore new places, so that particular characteristic is so much imbibed in us that we believe in the beauty of the journey,” says Rubina. Is marriage on their mind? “Marriage isn’t the ultimate destination. We’re enjoying this journey at the moment,” says the 27-year-old, who was earlier in a serious relationship with actor Avinash Sachdev.
On whether this new relationship has helped her overcome her past, Rubina says that was never the intent. “For me, a relationship is not about two people coming and completing each other. I believe that a beautiful relationship grows between two people who are individually secure. So only when I was fully prepared and fully out of my past — emotionally and spiritually — that is when I took this step forward.”
While there are “endless things” she adores about Abhinav, one thing that got her hooked on to him was his creativity. “I call him a Pandora box – he is full of surprises. He is so creative that each time, he’ll surprise you with magnificent creations that your interest in human beings just grows. And whenever I see him do something new, I get all the more attracted towards him. I feel blessed that I’m leading my life with a person who knows how to live each and every day preciously.”
Completely smitten by her boyfriend, Rubina adds: “Abhinav has helped me open my wings. He motivates and inspires me. A relationship is not looking into each other’s eyes and spending days. It’s looking forward and setting up a goal as a couple and that’s what we are doing.”
