This one seems to be one of the first posts of the couple on Instagram back in February 2020.

With the onset of a lockdown in 2020, Viraj and Palak put up cute posts for each other while missing the other one. Viraj wrote, “Where ever you are, I swear I’ll be. Already missing -“pick me up”

They both started dropping hints on social media. By March 2020, both had posted pictures with each other on their respective profiles.

Their quirky captions just keep coming and we’re loving it! Two wanderlusts in love.

Viraj and Palak never fall short of cute moments and fun banter. This one said, “Paused our fight for this picture @palakkhimavat Resumed after posting it! Be right back.” As real as it gets, haha!
