She is very sure that she loves him, but her career is important to her and she wants to concentrate on that." Patel maintains, "We are not planning marriage at all for the next two years as both of us are concentrating on work. Long- distance relationships are never easy but we are both very supportive of each other's work and trust and respect each other."
The actress stresses that she isn't ready to retire her make-up box just yet, "Work is my worship. I can't dream of not being in front of the camera. I'm only married to my work. Marriage is the farthest from my mind. I haven't seen Kanav in two months and wont be able to for at least another couple of months. But it's okay. Work first. All else can wait."
She says there is no comparison between her personal and professional life, "My career is my oxygen and love is my heartbeat. Both have to be present in my life and both make each other more enjoyable. I think everything in life needs a balance."
The couple keeps their special love story through the electronic medium. She says, "It's fun to e-mail and wait for calls. We also use the Blackberry messenger. We work very hard so when we get a few days together we value them. We also Skype sometimes. Kanav is in London so, I have no distraction. I can only focus on work. So in a way it's perfect. Also we are so work minded that the distance doesnt mater. What we lose out in quantity of time spent we make up in quality time and that's far more important for any relationship to survive."
