‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ might be a possible love story on screen but in real life, it seems far from it. After watching the film in the theatres, a lot of people seemed to think that in real life, a ‘Rani’ (ambitious, socially aware, politically inclined and intellectual) will never choose to be a ‘Rocky’ (loud, flamboyant, touchy, and dunce).
What will they talk about?
What do they have in common?
How will they ever create a bridge between their differences?
These are some of the questions one might ask about the possibility of a ‘Rocky’ and a ‘Rani’ having a relationship or getting married.
However, there are a couple of Rockys in the world who have fallen in love with Ranis. Here’s an example:
Meet Rocky and Rupali, a couple almost identical to Rocky and Rani, who fell in love, got married, and have been together for 37 years!
Rocky is Punjabi and Rupali is Bengali. He is a ‘jhappi pappi’ boy while Rupali is an intellectual who comes from a family of architects. Hence, they too had a basket of differences, but it worked out anyway!
37 years ago … Rocky aur Rupali ki Prem
1. Punjabi Boy / Bengali girl
2. Fultoos jhappi Pappi boy fam fultoos intellectual girl fam (architects)
3. Very similar questions floated about
1. Boy couldn’t be beaten in an argument
2. Girl had made up mind pic.twitter.com/1ZofC7w8R4

It’s truly heartening to see two people keeping aside their differences and uniting for the sake of love!
