Sneak Peek: The real life love story of Diya Aur Baati Hum actress Deepika Singh
Deepika has married Rohit Raj Goel, the ex-director of the show Diya Aur Baati Hum.
She's one of the most loved bahus on Indian television and is known for her portrayal of Sandhya in the superhit show Diya Aur Baati Hum. While her chemistry with her onscreen husband Soorajji charmed one and all, not many people know that Deepika Singh aka Sandhya is married in real life as well.
Deepika married Rohit Raj Goel in 2014, who happens to be the ex-director of Diya Aur Baati Hum and that is how the two met. Deepika is really thankful to find success and also her future husband in the city of her dreams, Mumbai, where she came to make a life of her own in 2012.
And, Rohit was one of the first people she interacted with when she signed the show. She can't stop singing praises about her husband and how he has taught her everything.
"He has taught me everything. Till now, whatever I have learned is all because of Rohit. He has molded me into an actress. I can trust him blindly. We are on set for almost 12-18 hours. We know everything about each other’s likes and dislikes. So, I am sure he is the right person for me," she says.
But despite marrying her, Rohit never used to treat her special on the sets and that's something Deepika adored.
"As a director, Rohit is very dominating, in a good sense, as he knows how to get the best out his actors. I had to be very focused while working with him. Sab se zyaada daant maine hi khayi hai set pe as I was the only newcomer on the show. Maine kabhi nahi socha tha ki jiss insaan se main itni daant kha rahi hoon, issi se mujhe pyaar hoga aur fir shaadi bhi hogi. Post marriage, I dominate him. I nag him and this is so much fun," she says.

Deepika is glad that she married Rohit and is happy with her new life post her wedding.
"Life shaadi ke baad actually kafi relaxed ho gayi hai. Kyunki ab koi tension nahi hai of refusing to go on a date or a break-up. Har insaan chahta hai ki uski personal life best ho. And mine is at present,"she says.
Deepika maintains that Rohit is her guru and despite marrying him, she still calls him sir and not by his name.
"I've always respected him a lot. When I started working with him on Diya Aur Baati Hum, I never knew that one day we will enter into a relationship. He has been my guru and I've become a good performer only because of him. Whatever I can act today is only because he guided me in the right direction," she says.
"The best part about our relationship is that I respect him a lot and he has that special place in my life. I've always addressed him as sir and will continue to call him sir even after marriage. He has tried many times to make me call him by his name but I can't and I don't think I can ever call him by his name," she adds.
When your spouse is your boss
There are many people who fall in love with someone they work with and quite often they end up marrying them as well. However, there are a few things that they should keep in mind:
1.Don't mix work and pleasure: Even though your husband/spouse happens to be your boss, do not ever mix your personal life with your professional one. Just like Rohit never treated Deepika especially on the sets.
2. Don't expect people around you to change: Just because you are personally related to the boss, never expect people around you to change of treat you differently. Always maintain a cordial relationship with everyone like before and don't let them feel that you've changed.
3. Maintain boundaries: Never take work related stuff home and never put your personal grudges on the work table. Always remember your roles at work and at home and make sure you don't mix the two.
