|"Valentines Day is the most romantic day "
You celebrated your third anniversary on Valentine's Day?
Gautami- Yes, we did! We had an awesome time and we had family and friends over. Ram is generally busy with work, but yesterday he took a day off and surprised me with a cute pink colored Motorola Razer V3, which I have been eyeing since Christmas. So it was a day well spent, where all we did was simply chill out.
Ram- It was excellent! We had our closest friends over to spend the whole day together and then we went for dinner. I've been working very hard and this was my first holiday after a long time.
Why did you choose V Day to get married? You don't seem like a couple that believes in the concept?
Gautami- We totally believe in the concept, that's why we got married on that day! People say it's a very western concept and a very cheesy thing. But I feel it's a beautiful day for celebrating love, it's a way of reciprocating your love for your loved ones. One can expect a lot of gifts on this day!

Ram- It was Gautami's decision to get married on this day and I had no problems with it!
You are expecting a baby soon, so how's the feeling? And what do you want the baby to grow up to be?
Gautami- It's a great feeling. It's just that I am getting fatter by the hour so I am slowly getting used to the weight. I have been very skinny person all my life, but this is the best phase of my life! I can also indulge in guilt free eating and I get pampered all the time.
I am open to my child doing anything until it's nothing disrespectful and I will be a very supportive parent.
Ram- I am excited to become a father soon. I want my child to be healthy, happy,well-adjusted and kind hearted. That's it.
When do you plan to resume work ? What kind of roles would you be interested in?
Gautami- I have had working parents so I will also get back to work after my baby turns seven months or so. I am not the kind of person who likes to sit at home. Today, we have many working mothers in the industry.
I'd like to do quality work with leading production houses and do challenging roles, say a negative character or comedy. I want to keep myself away from the stereotype bahu and experiment with various roles.
|"He's passionate about everything"
What's one thing that you like and dislike about your spouse?
Gautami- I think he's a very passionate person, not just physically but he's passionate about his work, family, relationships - everything. There is nothing I dislike about him majorly, but just that he's a smoker, so would want him to quit smoking.
Ram- What I like about Gautami is that she is a large hearted person. And what I dislike in her is that she is a scatterbrain, she keeps forgetting her keys, cell phone and I have to be behind her all the time, reminding her about everything.
What is that one thing that keeps your marriage alive?
Gautami- There are many things that keep a marriage alive. You have got to be understanding, compassionate and romantic. There are temptations around but if these qualities are there in you, you could be romantic for more than 50 years of your marriage.
Ram- There are a combination of things that work in a marriage. There has to be trust, communication, mutual respect and the ability to compromise and adjust.

Are you a romantic person?
Gautami- A Complete romantic person. I can take the extra effort to make my spouse happy. I love the candle lit dinners, gift him something (not essentially something expensive), go out for movies, spend time, relax and unwind together. Ram is equally romantic too.
Ram- Yes, very much. I like to surprise her with gifts, travel with her and do everything that makes her happy. For instance, Gautami is extremely scared of dogs. And on our first anniversary I got her pup, after much selection! And she nearly fainted that night at the party. And from then on, she's turned into an animal lover just like me!
