Bless the couple and join in our happiness. The venue, the decor is not important. What I am wearing is not important, the marriage is. We are all very happy. There was no reception in Mumbai, just the marriage. We danced; we had a lot of fun. There is no celebration in Pataudi, not now at least. We may have something later. Abhi sab thak gaye hain. Abhi daal-chawal ka time aa gaya hain.
