Pulkit Samrat has been on a promotional spree ahead of the release of ‘Pagalpanti’ this week.

Talking about this to BizAsiaLive.com’s Raj Baddhan, Samrat said, “As far as how we met, we shot a movie together (Veerey Ki Wedding). We weren’t on talking terms at that time. It was during the promotions, we exchanged numbers. Then we started talking to each other. Then we were best friends for a year, a year and a half before we started dating. It’s important we be best friends first and then everything else comes after.”

During the interview, Samrat spoke extensively about the film’s shoot in the UK and the actor’s favourite places in the UK. He also spoke about his future projects.
