Their romance began at the unlikeliest of places. Recalls Karan, “I met her three years ago, at a parking lot. She was trying to find a spot to park her car and I helped her out. We then met a couple of times through a common friend and soon, started dating.”
Karan says it Poppy’s droopy eyes that left him weak in the knees. “I love her eyes. We are both Cancerians and she understands me well. She has a positive outlook towards life and loves to travel. Like me, she also believes that life is to be lived completely in the moment,” he says.
But why did he keep the relationship a closely guarded secret? “We are extremely private people and didn’t want to inform the media about our relationship,” he replies. So, is marriage on the cards? “Not in the immediate future. We are occupied with our work as of now. Our families are aware of our relationship, but there is no pressure from their end either,” he asserts.
