But to love the other persons’ imperfections takes you forward in the direction of being perfect. So we love each other, and we love each others’ flaws too, and that’s probably one of the reasons why our relationship even today is the same as it was some four-five years back,” Shoaib said. Dipika added that their friendship between them plays an important role in their life as partners.
