Yash and Radhika got married in December 2016. They are the most popular star couple of the Kannada film industry. With the success of KGF, Yash and Radhika are considered one of the power couples of the Indian film industry.
Yash and Radhika's love story is like a movie. Here are factors that brought Yash and Radhika together for life.
First meeting — not a good impression
Yash and Radhika both met on the sets of Nandagokula serial in 2004. They had to share the same cab and Radhika did not even talk to him as she thought he had a lot of attitude. And Yash thought the same about Radhika as she was not even being friendly for the sake of courtesy.
Radhika was acting opposite another person in the serial Nandagokula. But soon, he was replaced by Yash. The same thing repeated when Radhika was acting in her debut movie (according to release date) Moggina Manasu. Yash replaced another actor to bag the lead role opposite Radhika. Then after some years when Yash was acting in Yograj Bhat directed movie Drama, Radhika replaced the heroine and the couple acted together again.
Over the years both became close to each other and were thickest of friends. Yash thought Radhika was the one who made him realise that he had a softer side and made him realise his strengths. Radhika considered Yash as his best friend in the film industry, with whom she can be herself and doesn't have to act at all.
After being in love for quite some years, on Valentine's Day in 2000, Yash packed Radhika's favourite things in a basket and kept it inside her car. This is said to be the first step towards his proposal. Yash is then said to have proposed to her over the phone and that Radhika took six months to say 'yes' to marry him.
Families not surprised
Yash had been her best friend for a very long time and Radhika's family was not surprised as they knew him quite well and knew Radhika's equation with him. Yash, who took Radhika home to introduce her to his parents on the day of Varamahalakshmi festival, had never got any girl home and the parents knew instantly what the matter was.
The couple married in December 2016 and the duo is blessed with a baby girl and a baby boy.
