In an interview with ETimes, Kaur spilled beans about their impending wedding next month. She said, "The wedding is in March, and I am still figuring out a lot of things.

Of their love story
Kaur met Patel at a friend's party in Dubai in 2022 and bonded over being single parents. While speaking about their relationship, she told ETimes, "Romance wasn't in the air back then; it was just two single parents chatting. Love happened with time. It was our love for our children that connected us." Kaur will reportedly move abroad with her and Bhanot's son post-marriage.
Children from respective previous marriages
From his previous marriage, Patel has two daughters, Aanika, who stays with her mother in the USA, and Aariyana stays with Patel. Kaur and Bhanot have a nine-year-old son, Jaydon. Bhanot regularly stays in touch with their child and is on cordial terms with Kaur.
Bhanot-Kaur relationship saga
Bhanot and Kaur met while shooting for the TV show Kulvaddhu (2006-07). They soon connected with each other and the former lovebirds got married in 2009, which was a big media affair. In 2014, Kaur gave birth to their son. However, a few months later, rumors were rife that the duo filed a divorce suit. They got divorced in 2015.
