When Balraj Syal was asked what was it about Deepti that he decided to tie the knot with her, Balraj replied,
It was an easy decision for me. She understands my silence, and the way she took care of me when I fell ill on my birthday sealed the deal for me. Well time will tell if it was a right decision (laughs). Honestly, when I saw her, I felt I should get married to her. She is very understanding and knows my heart sayings before I can speak out. Also, when I introduced Deepti to my family, they also fell in love with her. I think I don’t deserve such a nice girl. Hence, before other boys had a chance post the pandemic, I took the opportunity to get married.”
Deepti’s husband credits her wife for am impact on his life. He said,
Earlier, I used to behave or do what I felt like doing, but now, my wife Deepti guides me what to do and what not to. She tells me what can go against me and what are the things that will help me be a better person. Life has changed but it has changed for good. It has become better. I feel there would have not been a better time to get married. For us (artists), when we decide to get married generally we have to take a break for the wedding preparations and to spend time with our partner. But because of the pandemic, we were already on break and we did not have to take any holiday.”
On 12 October 2020, the couple releases a song called Maahi through the YouTube channel Realise Music. Deepti contributed her voice to the song, which was created by Oye Kunaal. Deepti and Balraj’s wedding footage was used in the video for ‘song,’ which was published by Balraj’s own company Realise Music. The reason behind releasing the song along with their wedding video was that their families, friends and fans, who didn’t get an opportunity to take part in their wedding rituals due to the pandemic could get a chance to see a glimpse of their marriage.
Deepti first met Balraj at an event in 2016, and instantly felt a connection. Balraj proposed to her in January 2021 after spending hours chatting to her and feeling she was the one. She, on the other hand, took her time accepting his proposal. Talking about his connection with Deepti. her now husband said,
I went to shoot for Fear Factor: ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and kept texting her, but didn’t get a desired response. It was during my trip to Turkey and Greece that we started having long conversations. I met her a couple of times after I returned, and proposed marriage to her on my birthday (January 26), during a getaway in Goa. She was taken by surprise and didn’t respond immediately.”

When you are working alone, the difficulties you face in the shoots are managed by you but when you see your loved ones facing issues you feel bad. If the shoots are hectic there have been times I skipped my meals but it’s sad to see my wife skipping meals. The reason why I have told the staff to make sure she eats on time. I’m sure she will learn everything soon. I am one of those people who live in the moment. I never preplan anything. I always share things that come to my mind. If there are some untold stories that I have not shared with my wife till now, I have no problem sharing them with her when I am on stage. People will get to know me better through these stories. I don’t see any harm in sharing your thoughts, disappointments much like your achievements.”
