Priya Bapat and Umesh Kamat are popular couple in the Marathi film industry. The two first met when Priya was in standard 10. From being committed at the age of 19, to starring together in films and starting their first theatre production together, the couple likes to be on the same page.
Talking to a popular online portal, Priya revealed about her meeting with Umesh. She said, “The very first time I met him was at the premiere of Chandrakant Kulkarni’s Bhet (2002). We did not meet on the sets. Umesh says that I gave him a lot of attitude and did not acknowledge him, but he noticed me. The time we actually met was during the last day of the shoot of Abhalmaya. I was a huge fan of his work, and we exchanged numbers. It was only after two years, that we actually met through a common friend, again.”
Priya also spoke about the things she admires about her partner. She added, “I admire the fact that he is nothing like me. He is extremely calm and composed, and poised always. He is understanding and supportive. He never enforces a decision or opinion on me. On the contrary, he pushes me to take the right decisions. I fell for these qualities of him that make him stand out.”
