Gautam Rode and Pankhuri Awasthy announced the news of their pregnancy earlier this year in April. Best known for her portrayal of Razia Sultan in Razia Sultan, Pankhuri posted an animated video and used the titles of three Bollywood films - Jab We Met (when they first met), Band Baaja Baaraat (when they got married) and now, Good Newwz (pregnancy announcement) - as references to describe the journey of her relationship with Gautam. The couple reportedly met on the sets of Razia Sultan but fell in love during filming for the show Suryaputra Karn, which featured Gautam as Karn, while Pankhuri played Draupadi. Both stars maintained privacy around their relationship until 2017 when they announced their engagement after which the two lovers got married in Alwar, Rajasthan, in 2018.
