Actor Karan Kundrra has been dating video jockey, Anusha Dandekar for three years now. While Karan doesn’t think he is an expert on love and relationships, he admits that he just follows his heart in such matters. “A successful relationship is a dish and every couple makes it their own way. There is no one mantra that can be applicable for every couple. You have to figure it out on your own. When you understand what works for you and what brings you together, that becomes your personal mantra, which is the case with me and Anusha. We are the best of friends and that’s the secret to our lasting relationship. We are very close to each other and things are extremely smooth between us.”

The couple manages to find time to spend together personally and professionally. They recently even hosted a reality show that revolves around love and young couples. The Kitani Mohabbat Hai actor is glad that as a couple, he and Anusha know what their priorities in life are. “We are aware of our commitments towards our work and our families. When I say that work ranks first on my priority list, followed by family, and love being the third, Anusha understands. For Anusha, her work and independence are her priorities. We haven’t raised each other’s expectations by saying that we will prioritise love before everything else in life. We are clear about that and that is why we have a peaceful relationship. People usually don’t listen to their partners and most of the youth today doesn’t know what their partners’ priorities are. I would say, don’t have high expectations from relationships. Be honest and true about yourself and do not lie to impress your partner.”

So, then has the thought of marrying Anusha crept up in Karan’s mind? “I don’t understand the importance of marriage. We don’t have nine-to-five jobs and we do want to settle down. We are doing well in our careers and there is no reason to get an approval certificate from the society. What difference will marriage make in our relationship? We are not considering marriage, but we do understand that eventually we will have to succumb (to the pressures of the society; laughs).”

Karan will soon be back to acting on the small screen with Ekta Kapoor’s new show, Dil Hi Toh Hai. Ask him if money was the reason for picking up a TV show and he says, “I have a construction company as well as an IT company, and there are a lot of ways for me to make money without putting in too much hard work. Money is important as I like to value myself. If you don’t value yourself the world won’t value you. I wouldn’t say money is the major reason for me to take on a show but television does pay a lot of money. However, I never choose projects based on money.”
