Love follows the mantra of ‘my time and my place’.
So WittyFeed brings you ten amazing tales of how these billionaire CEOs got the love of their life.
Have a look at these experiences and from next time, do keep a check you can even get your soulmate in a washroom line or gym even.
1. Isha Koppikar and Timmy Narang
Timmy Narang is a co-founder of the famous hotel chains ‘The Ambassador’ and also owns the Lush restaurant at Palladium, Mumbai.
Timmy is a ‘gymaholic’ and met Isha Koppikar, the Bollywood diva at the gym. Both exchanged numbers with each other and started talking.
They both conversed over the phone for two years and met only twice in these two years. This is unbelievable.
The two gym freaks found the love of their life at their favourite place.
2. Rahul Kumar and Asin Thottukmal
Another Bollywood style romance. Rahul Kumar, the Founder of Micromax telecom industry, met the Bollywood diva Asin Thottumkal.
Asin told The Bombay Times that she had a similar start to her love story just like her own movie ‘Ghajini’. She said, “Just like my character Sanjana in the film bluffed and made up the story of being linked to Sanjay Singhania. I met him first at the Mumbai airport, and that he said a hi and I said hi and how he came and sat next to me and then said I love you. My story is eerily similar to that.”
She added that her co-actor Akshay Kumar introduced her to Rahul, and told ‘I think you two will be good with each other’.
Finally, Rahul and Asin sealed their real life movie script and lived happily after.
3. Deepak Ravindran and Shilpa Thakur
We had always heard about continental food but have you heard about the continental wedding.
Interesting, isn’t it?
The famous Bengaluru startup messaging app, Lookup, was founded by Deepak Ravindran.
Ravindran met Thakur, in the pretext of filing a patent. The patent outcome is still not received, but the duo had already sealed their deal.
It is called a continental love story because Deepak proposed Shilpa in Venice, they had their engagement in California, and now they are about to get married in Kerala.
4. Sundar and Anjali Pichai
Yes! Our famous Google CEO also was madly in love with a girl in his college. Probably a teenage love which changed to a lifetime relationship. Sundar met Anjali during his IIT days. They were batch mates at IIT. Initially they were good friends for four long years, and finally, Sundar proposed her in his fifth year of engineering. The duo shares a great bond and is now happily married.
Love didn’t spare our Google CEO even. Well! Everybody falls in love one fine day.
5.Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan
The social networking king, Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest self-made billionaire. He is the founder of the biggest social networking site ‘Facebook’.
It was not one of those “Mark Zuckerberg meetings” with millions of people. But it was just a meeting between two people. Mark met Priscilla Chan during a party by Mark’s fraternity in 2003. He met Priscilla at a very strange place, in the waiting line of a washroom. Soon these two Harvard students started dating each other.
This was a strange, weird “washroom line love”.
So this is how these 5 billionaires started their journey of love, and each one of them ended up being happily married.
