Ever since he married his wife Anu second time over last year, Sanjay Gupta is ensuring that he does everything right in this new phase of his personal life. To celebrate his second honeymoon, he is currently on a two week long vacation in Bali. An avid traveller and an adventure lover, Sanjay is on an extended road trip where he is travelling the length and breath of Bali on a motorbike.
"I couldn't have been happier," says an excited Sanjay from Bali where he has eyes only for his wife whom he was once married to, then divorced and subsequently remarried - a first at least in the world of Bollywood, "I love my wife and I love bikes. What better way to bring on my second honeymoon than enjoying a ride with her on a bike. Bali is an exotic place. Trust me; it can't get more romantic than this."
Till a couple of years ago when he was living the life of a bachelor, Sanjay was known for biking with his group of Bollywood friends late in the night. While a free lifestyle allowed him to enjoy the best that the life had to offer, Sanjay was sure that he wanted to settle down all over again. Looking back, he feels that it was this very lifestyle that made him loose out on true love.
"It was my lifestyle and the nature of my business (glamour) that did me in," reflects Sanjay when asked about what went wrong earlier in his relationship with Anu, "There are so many temptations that you face at every nook and corner. One has to survive them all. Things like these take a toll on the most established of the relationships."
Now that he is back again with his wife and recently completed a year of remarriage, Sanjay isn't allowing anything to go wrong in their relationship.
"It was important for her to see the change in me," smiles Sanjay, "I asked her to allow me to be the person whom she had fell in love with and then get married. I had to woo her for full two years so aggressively and ultimately got her back in my life. Once she was convinced that I was the same Sanjay whom she had met years back, she said yes to me. After all, it takes time for a woman to put things behind her. "
Well, after gifting Anu a swanky white BMW a couple of years back and now taking her round Bali on a motorbike for a second honeymoon, Sanjay is making sure that he does charm her all over again.
