Amrita Rao Marriage – The Courtship

The pair was initially very secretive about their bond. During the early years, when Amrita would be quizzed about her relationship status, she would evade the question by chuckling at it or give a terse reply that she was ‘single’. In an interview in 2013 with The Times of India, she went a step ahead by saying that her first relationship will be her last but quickly retracted by adding that she has no plans of getting married soon. Irrespective of her statements, there was little she could do, or rather was doing, to hide her affiliation towards RJ Anmol, nor the fact that the media would obviously talk about the possibility of Anmol and Amrita Rao’s marriage happening.

As time progressed, the doting duo started making public appearances together, mainly at events where she would accompany Anmol. Their hand-in-hand stance at the red carpet made it evident that they were more than just friends. What became the culminating point of their public display of love was in 2014 when Anmol was down with dengue and was admitted in the hospital for some time. Soon Amrita became a permanent fixture at the hospital. But in spite of the glaring evidence of their romantic affinity, she stayed silent about it. Anmol also stayed tight-lipped about the entire matter but the pair continued making public appearances, and those of us who got a wind of their relationship continued to root for Anmol and Amrita Rao’s marriage. Things continued that way till May 2016, when a Facebook post by Anmol left everyone pleasantly surprised.
