Maniesh Paul is a household name but little is known about his wife, their love story and his struggling days. In a recent interaction, Maniesh opened about his life journey, his financial struggles and why he owes everything to his wife, Sanyukta.
In the post on his social media account, Maniesh says that he knows Sanyukta since nursery and fell for her in school. The two started dating and after graduating from school, Maniesh moved to Mumbai as an aspiring actor on Sanyukta’s advice. Paul said that during his struggling days, Sanyukta stood behind him like a rock and never complained.
He said, “I moved here. While I struggled, Sanyukta backed me. Finally, in 2006, I got a full-time job as an RJ. So, I told Sanyukta, ‘Let’s get married!’ We had a big fat Punjabi-Bengali wedding. After moving in with me, Sanyukta took up a job as a teacher; I was juggling my job and a few anchoring assignments. We barely got any time together, but she never complained. In 2008, I was jobless for a year–I didn’t even have the money to pay the house rent. But, Sanyukta took care of everything. Finally, I’m in a place where I can take time out for Sanyukta and my kids.”
