He captioned it as, “All the love stories and quotes about love fall short in front of our love story. With you by my side I know I’m safe, loved & happy!

I promise to spend my life making you feel loved and treasured in the way that you deserve it…Happy Anniversary!! @kapoor.sunita.”
Their daughter Sonam Kapoor had also shared throwback pictures from their younger days to wish them.
Watch Anil’s original song here:
Anil and Sunita dated for more than a decade before they got married. Talking about how they met, Anil had told Humans of Bombay in 2018, “A friend of mine gave Sunita my number to prank call me–that’s when I first spoke to her & fell in love with her voice! Soon after, we met at a party–there was just something about her. We started talking & became friends. We used to discuss this other girl I liked-you know, if I like her or she likes me? Then suddenly that girl vanished, leaving me heartbroken–our friendship strengthened because of that! Little did I know that Sunita was the one all along–we started dating organically. It’s not like in the movies–I didn’t ask her to be my girlfriend–we both just knew. She was from a liberal family–a banker’s daughter with a modelling career & I was bekaar! She didn’t care who I was or what my profession is- none of it mattered!”
He added, “I lived in Chembur & she lived on Nepeansea road–it took me an hour to reach by bus. She would start screaming, ‘No come fast by cab!’ & I’d say ‘Arrey I don’t have money’ then she’d say ‘Just come na’ & pay for my cab! We dated for 10 years–we travelled and grew together. She was always clear that she won’t enter the kitchen. If I said ‘cook’ I’d get a kick! I knew I needed to become something before asking her to marry me. I went through the struggle of not getting work, but she supported me unconditionally. So when I got my first break, ‘Meri Jung’ I thought, now house will come, kitchen will come, help will come..I can get married! So I called Sunita & said, ‘Let’s get married tomorrow–it’s tomorrow or never’ & the next day, we were married! I went for shoot 3 days later & madam went abroad on our honeymoon..without me!”
