While in an interview taken by Entertainment Times, Shantanu said, “While my art is what I have always been known for, my calling was a beautiful accident, to be honest. I grew up in Guwahati, Assam. As a kid, I was never exposed to art and design; the only thing that came close enough was those art classes we had in our school. One thing that really separated me from the other kids was that I hated sports. While my friends would be running around, playing cricket and basketball, I would be reading comic books in the woods. There was no internet then either. Comic books were my first introduction to art. As I grew older, I started copying the characters and started selling my drawings for canteen money. As I was surrounded by nature all the time, organic patterns were imprinted on my mind. Little did I realise that it would impact my art so much later on. I was a straight a student and later on, I stopped drawing for the sake of my studies and took up science”.
Both Shruti and Santanu made no confirmation regarding their relationship. But the fans are excited anyway.
