Azmi also shared some advice for couples looking to have a successful marriage. “It’s important to have a strong foundation of trust and respect in any relationship,” she said. “And most importantly, never forget to appreciate and support each other’s dreams and aspirations.”

The actress’s revelation about her relationship with Akhtar has sent shockwaves through Bollywood, with fans and admirers wondering what could have been if the couple had taken the traditional route of an arranged marriage. Nevertheless, it’s clear that Azmi and Akhtar’s love story is one for the ages, a testament to the power of love, commitment, and mutual respect.
