Pankaj and Mridula had a courtship of 12 years before they got married.

The Better India

And whenever he gets a chance, he talks about his wife with a lot of pride, some of those times are as follows:

1. Him speaking about his struggling years

During the early bits of his career, he was a struggling actor and his wife was the one to bring bread on the plate for the family. She was building the house, while Pankaj was supporting the interiors and searching for better acting gigs.

During an interview with She The People, he said,

“My wife Mridula and I survived on her income in Mumbai. She was a qualified school teacher and she got a job in Mumbai while I did what all out-of-town actors in Mumbai do… Struggle. My first major role was in Dharm in 2007 where I got to work with my namesake, the great Pankaj Kapur.”

2. Revealing That His Wife Is His Biggest Fan

He acknowledged the fact that his wife was his first fan. Even when he was not getting loved by his audience his wife kept on putting with him. Mridula spoke about how she believed that their relationship would work just fine and she knew that Pankaj would succeed.

Pankaj in a interview with Lehreh TV said,

“Ye mujhe tab pyaar ki thi jab koi audience mujhe pyaar nahi karti thi. Haan, toh ye bachpan ka pyaar hai, aur ye janta aur cinema ka pyaar alag hai.”

3. Bonding Over Love Letters

The couple talks about their time together when they read love letters. They allegedly bond over reading novels and literature, which made them giggle and mushy about love. Live birds!
This is what Pankaj had to say about this incident for She The People,

“Hum Phanishwar Renu Nath ki Kahani Yaad padhte the Saath mein, Raag Darbari novel hai Shrilal Shukla ka, usme Ek prem patra hai. I think 208 number page par hai, mujhe abhi page bhi yaad hai. Toh Woh hum dono padh ke haste the.”

4. When He Decided To Spend The Rest Of His Life With Mridula

She said that the time he saw her for the first time was the moment he decided to marry her and wanted to spend the rest of his life with her Even though they did not know each other, he still was contemptuous.

“Kahin par gaye the tilak chadhane, main hi tha, meri behen ki shaadi thi. Aur dekh liya tha chhat ki balcony par. Fir woh utarte hui aayi, aangan cross kar rahi thi, aur aise lagaa ki hiran ki tarah kulhaanche bhari, mudh ke dekha aur chali gayi. Ab toh baaki ka jeevan inhi ke sang. Achaanak! Shukravaar ki raat, 8:30 baje tey kiya tha ki baaki ka zindagi is ladki ke naam.”

5. Writing A Love Letter To His Wife

When Amitabh Bachchan asked him whether he has ever written her a love letter or not he agreed that he did! But he wrote in a very subtle way just like the old school way of writing letters. In a conversation with Amitabh Bachchan during KBC, Pankaj said,

“Ek bohot sanketik prem patra likha tha. Sab upar normal tha, ki ghar, parivaar ki logo ko, badho ko pranaam, woh achche honge, main achcha hoon, main kushalta poorvak hoon. Last mein tha sirf, ‘badho ko pranaam, aur chhote ko pyaar.’ Mujhe pata hai ki chhoti padhegi toh samajh jaaegi ki chitthi ka maqsad sirf chhoti ko pyaar hai, aur kuchh nahi hai.”

6. The way he proposed her to marry him

When Pankaj talked about how he proposed to his wife and asked her to marry her was way too cute! The proposal was pure, straight up and nothing extravagant but just all pure love. And also the way he asked her to marry him was beyond cute!

“Dil dene ke pehle hum poochhte the ki, ‘Vivaah karogi kya?’ Bolti thi ‘kyun?’ Hum bole ki uske baad main pyaar karunga.”
