'When I met this person, I felt I had known him my whole life,' the 43 year old actor said.
Ever since Sushmita Sen started sharing cute, cozy pictures of her model boyfriend Rohman Shawl, everyone has been wanting to know how the two met.
While Sen has never really mentioned details of her relationship in any of her posts or pictures she's shared on Instagram, the actor-model made an exception recently.
In an interview with Rajeev Masand for the series Women We Love, the 43-year-old revealed how the two really met.
'It's a very very beautiful serendipity story. He sent me a direct message on Instagram and I didn't check direct messages because I wasn't sure if you check it you may be allowing that person to start communicating with you. So, I had too many of these direct messages and I had not opened any and there it was.'
'Touch screen phone ki jai ho because I had gone to the DM to look at what all had come and I was scrolling through and this boy broke something in the room and I went talking to him and when I came back I had obviously opened one of the DMs and it was a message from him and I was like 'Oh my god, how did I do that, god I should never be talking when I am near a phone.'
She responded to Rohman saying, 'Thank you so much, your message made my day, I wish you all the happiness in the world.'
Of course, Rohman couldn't believe this.
He replied: 'I am jumping from one room to another, I cannot believe you responded.'
All of this happened before Sushmita was leaving for the US.
The two gradually bonded over texts and social media.
'And then, I got to know him slowly when I came back and that too was an open offer to come play football with him.'
Sushmita insisted on coffee and that's how the two finally met.
'That was it when I met this person, I felt I had known him my whole life. It was that simple.'
