Even after so many years of marriage, they still complement each other. But do you know that the love of both started in a very different way.
While Sunita was from high society, Govinda was from small town. Because of this, initially there was a lot of fighting between the two. Sunita did not like Govinda earlier. Now we tell how Sunita, who did not like Govinda even an eye, fell in love with Govinda in the love story of both.
how did you meet
During his Struggle days, Govinda lived with his uncle for 3 years. Govinda’s uncle’s wife was Sunita’s sister. Sunita used to go to meet him. Both were very young at that time and used to fight a lot. The reason behind the fight is the opposite personalities of both. Govinda, who loved everything desi, found Sunita quite unfriendly. Govinda seemed clever with the way Sunita used to dress up and carry the dress.
how come then
The love that both of them had about dance, brought both of them together. Govinda’s uncle used to get dance competition between the two which Sunita refused because Govinda was from small town and Sunita from high society. Eventually, after many battles, the two began to be friends again. The friendship of both started turning into love again and both such fighters became lovers. According to Sunita, Govinda is emotional and due to this both of them started getting close to each other. After this both of them started sending love letters to each other.
sense of love
Govinda and Sunita used to send love letters and one day Sunita’s mother read that love letter. Interestingly, in the same letter, Sunita had written that she wants to marry Govinda as soon as possible. On the other hand, Govinda’s mother Nirmala Devi was very fond of Sunita and told the actor that she would marry Sunita one day.
Sunita told her heart
Sunita had told in an interview that when she fell in love with Govinda, she was only 15 years old. Sunita had said, I used to go to my brother-in-law’s house and my brother-in-law was Govinda’s maternal uncle. So Govinda stayed at my sister’s and brother-in-law’s house for 3 years and that’s where I met him for the first time. When we were young, we used to dance together and my brother-in-law used to motivate us. We then started dating each other and at the age of 18, I married Govinda.
kept marriage hidden from everyone
The two got married secretly among family and close friends. Govinda was told by his friends that he should not reveal his marital status publicly now as it will reduce his female fan following and this is not right for his career as Govinda was at the peak of his career at that time. Govinda obeyed him and kept the news of his marriage hidden from everyone for a long time.
The marriage of Govinda and Sunita was a love cum arranged marriage. Both of them got married in the year 1987 on 11th March. At that time Govinda’s age was 24 years. Please tell that Sunita was half Punjabi and half Nepali because her father was Punjabi and mother Nepali. Although Sunita does not have Nepali citizenship.
Support each other in sorrow
Govinda and Sunita have 2 children, a daughter Narmada Ahuja called Tina and a son Yashvardhan Ahuja. Everyone knows Tina and Yashvardhan, but very few people know that they had another daughter who died at the age of 4 months because she was a premature baby. Talking about these tragedies, Govinda had said, I have seen 11 deaths in my family which includes my first daughter, mother and father. Apart from these, my 2 cousins, my sister and brother-in-law also passed away. After this his company was also closed, so I also took care of his children. There was emotional and financial pressure on me.
Although Govinda’s wife Sunita has always been with him in every difficult time. He never let Govinda get weak.
Married again to Sunita
Govinda has always been sad that he kept his marriage with Sunita a secret. After this, he remarried Sunita on his 25th anniversary and performed all the wedding rituals. Apart from this, the last wish of Govinda’s mother Nirmala Devi was that both of them should get married again. Talking about this, Govinda said, it was my mother’s last wish that I should remarry Sunita.
At the same time, Sunita had said about this, the feeling of getting married again was already better. At that time the decision to hide the marriage was taken. I remember we also announced the wedding when Tina was born. So the second time I was more excited because this time I did not marry anyone secretly. This idea belonged to Govinda and we got married in London.
Let us tell you that both have been married for 34 years and even today their love remains intact. Both keep sharing romantic posts about each other on social media.
