Actor-couples reveal what brought them together, and look back on the high and low points of their relationship.

Upendra and Priyanka

It is a little over 14 years since Upendra and Priyanka were married.

Who opened up first: Upendra says, "After acting together in Telugu movie 'Raa', I realised our friendship was slowly turning to love. I took the first step and confessed my love to Priyanka on my birthday. I said those three golden words, but not in filmi style though."

What she said: "Priyanka knew it. I think we were both meant to be together."

Looking back: "Respecting and accepting each other is important. What is important is love, understanding and not having too many expectations."

High point: "When our first child was born. Our children have added so much meaning to our life."

Low point: "We have our differences but we make adjustments."

Yash and Radhika Pandit

Yash and Radhika have been married for a year. They say they make it a point to be together on Valentine's Day.

Who opened up first: Radhika says, "It was Valentine's Day when Yash confessed his love for me."

What she said: "It took me six months to say yes. It was a big step and I had to be sure."

Looking back: "We have never gifted each other expensive stuff but little gestures and thoughts make our relationship beautiful."

High point: "Our friendship is beyond our relationship."

Low point: "Whenever we have an argument, I am the first to get back to normal, but Yash takes time. But this is also what makes our love so special."

Chiranjeevi Sarja and Meghana Raj

Chiranjeevi Sarja and Meghana Raj were engaged last year and will tie the knot this year. They have known each other for a decade.

Who said it first: Chiranjeevi says, "I took the first step and it was obvious we both felt the same way."

What she said: "Meghana was on the same plane."

Looking back: "This may sound a little mushy but it's true. We have reached a point where we can't live without each other."

High point: "We worked together in 'Aatagara' and got to spend a lot of time. Being with Meghana all day and night and for so many days was definitely a high point."

Low point: "Our relationship is never complete without the little fights and nagging."

Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi

Rithvik Dhanjani and Asha Negi have been dating for six years.

Who said it first: Rithvik says, "We had feelings for each other. We both confessed it almost at the same time."

Looking back: "Asha has definitely made my life more meaningful and made me a better person."
