Commenting on the celebrations, Gourav Rakshit, Business Head, Shaadi.com said, “In launching the “Valentine Quotient” tool on Shaadi.com, we wanted to help out those looking for love this Valentines Day. The results of the Valentine Quotient have not only brought about intriguing revelations about the changing preferences of the youth but also have helped highlight the attributes that define Valentine’s Day”.
As part of the V-Day Celebrations, Shaadi.com also ran a poll called ‘Happily Married’. Visitors who took the poll could choose their Favourite Celebrity Couple and vote for the most inspiring love story that managed to tug their heart strings. Leading the poll were Abhishek & Aishwarya (32%) while Big B & Jaya came a close third at 20%. Shahrukh & Gauri stood at No. 2 (29%) while close rival Aamir & Kiran came far behind at the 4th position (9%). At the bottom of the rung stood newly-wed Rajasthan Royals couple Raj & Shilpa (4%) and Bollywood’s not-so-favorite couple Sanjay & Manyata at a close 2%.
