Why Ishita Dutta and Vatsal Sheth have planned a virtual date this Valentine’s Day

“Since Vatty (Vatsal) will be away shooting, we’ve thought of a long virtual dinner. We would have each other’s favorite dish and talk as much as we can. All thanks to the internet, we have these facilities that weren’t there earlier. A huge shoutout to everyone for Valentine’s Day. Let’s show some love for the ones who matter,” Ishita tells IANS.

“To be honest, every day is like a Valentine’s Day with us. We enjoy our chai and coffee breaks, soaking in the sunlight together and just doing normal things with each other. We aren’t too heavy on partying and going out. However, we do go out to eat my favourite pancakes or a cosy dinner,” she says.

The couple got married in 2017 in a private ceremony in Mumbai.

Venkat Prabhu’s series narrates the story of a TV crew that gets trapped in a haunted house.

“I am also against deforestation and that was the reason even in the rain, I was standing and supporting save the Aarey campaign. On that front too, a positive result came that we see. So yes, as an artiste I do express my opinion on issues, when I feel strongly about them and I have sound knowledge on them,” she declared. (IANS)
