Like in films, the hero and heroine of a movie also fall in love on the sets and get married eventually. Some films actually help the lead stars to fall in love. One such film was Saakshi which was directed by late Bapu with Krishna and Vijayanirmala in the lead. At the time, the film helped them fall in love with each other. Though Krishna was already married with children, he was floored by Vijayanirmala from the word go. His feelings became stronger during the shooting of Saakshi as she put in her career’s best performance in the film.
Incidentally, there is a shot in the film which was shot at Venugopala Swamy temple and Krishna is said to have confessed his love for Vijayanirmala during the shot at the temple. Luckily for him, Vijayanirmala reciprocated his love and the rest as they say is history. In fact, their love story is given as a perfect example in the industry as they continue to live as love birds even today. Well, that’s what true love stories are after all.
