Gautami and Ram Kapoor
Gautami and Ram Kapoor first met on the set of Ghar Ek Mandir and after being best friends for long they started dating each other and got married on 14 February 2003. It was not easy as Ram and Gautami were poles apart when it came to their basic personalities. While Ram described her as miss goody who always keeps a reserved profile. On the other hand, Ram was known to be a kind of a playboy who loved women who party hard, and certainly Gautami was not his type. But it is said, opposites attract and soon they realised that they are made for each other.
