After his debut as hero in 'Aniyathipravu', Kunchacko Boban was the reigning heart-throb of girls all over Kerala. That's when Priya, an ardent fan happened to meet him and it was love at first sight for him. Kunchacko was once quoted as saying that he first met Priya in ‘98 in Trivandrum. He was there for a shoot and was staying at a hotel. A few girls had come to the hotel to get his autograph.
“I came down and gave them my autograph, but one girl’s eyes locked with mine and that was Priya’s. Even though people don’t really believe in love at first sight, it happened to me. I asked her name and ran upstairs and tried to look at her from my window. That was the beginning. She used to call me, and in those days incoming phone calls were also chargeable. At that time, she was still doing her pre-degree so definitely wasn’t mature enough to get married and so I had to wait. They didn’t think that I’d wait for so long but I waited.”
He also mentioned that it was her classmates and his close friends who knew about their relationship and gave them the full support.
After getting their parents support, the duo got married in a traditional Christian ceremony.
On professional front, Kunchacko Boban was last seen in 'Allu Ramendran' and is currently working on Aashiq Abu's film 'Virus'.
