Maharani Tripti on meeting her Raja and how she knew he was "the one":

"Sankalp and I met a few years ago through a mutual friend. We both attended the same school for undergrad, however throughout our 4 years there we never crossed paths! It wasn't until my 3rd year of medical school that I met this goofy guy. I was out with a couple of friends for my birthday and I ran into an old friend, who happened to be very good friends with Sankalp. We started talking and I quickly realized that Sankalp was such an easygoing and laid back guy. Meeting Sankalp was honestly the best birthday gift I could have asked for! We dated for a while and I knew he would be the guy I would spend the rest of my life with. His charm, loving nature, and goofy personality won me over instantly. And of course, a special shout out to that awesome beard of his. Who can say no that!?"

We'll be back with the wonderful first look portraits when we return!
