The story of Pradyumna Kumar and Charlotte Von Sledvin is straight out of a Hindi film. In 1971, Pradyumana, a renowned artist, made a portrait of Charlotte and they fell in love instantly. The two got married according to rituals, after which Charlotte had to leave for Sweden. Pradyuman refused to go with her as he didn’t want her to spend money on the tickets. But he promised her that he’d join her one day. Pradyuman then decided to cycle all the way to Sweden. It took him 5 months to meet his wife! Today, the two have completed 40 years of blissful marriage and have two children. And you know what’s exciting? Sanjay Leela Bhansali is actually planning to make a film on their story.
