I had messaged her on Instagram as I wanted someone to create written content for my company. We knew each other since college and I knew that she writes well."
To this, Saloni added, "I recommended him a few more names for content writing, but he said he just wanted me. Well soon, we realised with time that we were meant to happen and gradually fell in love, deep in love."
Avinash also revealed that he was 'dumbfounded' and quite 'embarrassed' when she said she knew nothing about Jagya and Balika Vadhu.
"I was dumbfounded and quite embarrassed when she said she knew nothing about Jagya and Balika Vadhu. I was expecting her to know at least something about me and my work," said Avinash. "I knew nothing about him and honestly didn't care much until he was The Rock," Saloni added.
Talking about their 'PROPOSAL' moment, Avinash said, "I proposed to her at 4 am. So, actually that time is known as the BrahmaMuhurta when Lord Brahma wakes up and I thought that was auspicious to propose to her. And guess what It was an instant Yes from her side too. So, it all worked for me."
On the work front, Avinash was last seen in RonitÂ RoyÂ starrer Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar.
