Talking about his first meeting with his wife now, Abhishek said, “There was a film my father was making called Mrityudata, and I had gone for the location recce to Switzerland because the company felt that I would be able to take them to nice locations as I had grown up in Switzerland in boarding school. I had been there for a couple of days, all alone. And that’s when a childhood friend of mine, Bobby Deol, was shooting for his first film – Aur Pyar Ho Gaya. And he got to know I was there and said ‘Hey, why don’t you come over for dinner?
