Ishq FM's Romance in Rome contest highlighted the real-life love story of Nehal Thakkar and Anup Chandran, who met Varun and shared their compelling tale.

The two shared that they had met at a medical convention and realised that they both went through very similar accidents at the same spot -- Palm Beach Road in New Bombay, in a car of the same make and model, but only three years apart. They got married after dating for seven years. Interestingly, the couple's birth dates also coincide.

Varun found their story "extraordinary".

"The story will keep inspiring people to continue loving, keep believing and keep spreading positivity," said the actor, whose film will release on Friday.
