Suhasini Mulay has broken age-related stereotypes by not only getting hitched at the age of 60 but also by using the medium of the new age the Internet to find her Mr Right.

The five time national awardee and popular screen mom told Mumbai Mirror she met 65-year-old physicist Atul Gurtu online.

Mulay, who has won acclaim for her roles Hu Tu Tu, Dil Chahta Hai and Lagaan, said he was her Facebook friend and she met the particle physicist only after months of chatting online. "I was wary because I had met him online.

He was from a completely different profession. For him, the Atom is the biggest concern. My knowledge of these things is as good as yours.

I googled his name and found his resume interesting. His pictures on Facebook and on the TIFR site matched so I knew he was not a fake. We started chatting in July last year.

Suhasini says she fell in love with her husband when she read an article that he had written about the death of his first wife

While she had many FB friends, she was drawn to Gurtu because of the nature of their conversations. "I have won five national awards, one for Hu Tu Tu and four for documentaries I made.

All my documentaries were non-fictional. I have always been into reading serious material. We were able to chat about issues not related to my profession," she said. But, initially, I didn't want it to go beyond the www world," Mulay added.

But a magazine article written by Gurtu laid all her apprehensions to rest. "Atul is a widower. He had been married for 36 years and his wife died about six years ago. He had written this article about how he discovered she had cancer.

After the initial period of depression, rather than sitting and crying over it, he decided to make her as happy as he could. So, for the next 4-5 years they did everything they ever wanted to do. Learning this hooked me to him." After bonding virtually, Mulay and Gurtu finally met in the first week of November.

The actress, used to living alone, surprised herself and her family with her decision to marry him. "I had never thought of settling down. I had started believing I was always going to live alone. Marriage was the last thing on my agenda.

I have never been married but had a very long live-in relationship that ended in 1990. I came to Mumbai in 2000 and have lived alone for 20 years."

She added, "My family was very surprised. When I rang up my sister, she asked me if I was drunk. After I told her everything, she said 'Hang on, now I need a drink'. It was funny.

My aunt thought I was talking about getting married in one of my serials while my other sister thought that I was joking. My mother was in Mumbai and she met Atul and liked him. My family had never in their wildest dream thought I would get married."

The nature of Mulay's work had made it even harder for her or her family to consider a match possible.

"We shoot 14 hours a day every day of the week. Also, we shoot at Naigaon, Dahisar, Thane, and the only friends we make are within our own fraternity. Being the Dadi on the sets, I was more often than not the oldest one in the group.

Although I got along with all of them, there is always an age disconnect. It was on Facebook that I had conversations with people of my age group."

Mulay has been taking all the surprised responses in her stride. "At the Bandra court on January 7, people's jaws dropped when they realised we were the ones getting married.

There was much debate about the date because Atul was retiring on January 31 and we wanted to get married before that keeping in mind pension issues. However, he was to fly out the country and I had a shoot.

Finally, we decided January 16 was the best possible date as it also happens to be his birthday. We got married at the Arya Samaj. We then met his relatives in Delhi and his ex-wife Pramila's parents and relatives in Punjab.

We are now both settled in Mumbai." The 60-year sure has proved that there is really no age bar for settling down.
