Upon being asked about his belief in the institution of marriage, Anas had stated, “As a teen, I believed in love marriages and thought I would marry in a romantic fashion. But with time and as I experienced life, I felt that arranged marriage would be best for my family and me.

Anas Rashid, in another interview, had shared about his feelings on the D-day, “Everyone kept complimenting us how great we looked together. Our wedding attire also received a lot of appreciation and we were blushing because of the praises. Being the eldest in the house, I was so elated to see my family happy. It was a feeling that I can’t even describe in words. I was nervous, happy, restless and what not. It was the best day of my life for sure.”
Anas Rashid had also talked about Heena Iqbal being a part of their family. He was quoted as saying, “It doesn’t seem that she is new in the family. Heena has already won over everyone and she has seamlessly blended with the family. Everyone loves and adores her and she too has been reciprocating it with equal love. As of now, she hasn’t cooked anything but my mother and sisters are helping her in understanding these things.”
In another interview with the Bombay Times, Anas had talked about his married life and had stated, “I feel content and complete. During the wedding, Heena's friends asked me how it feels to be married in real life after tying the knot on-screen. I said I had the liberty to take a break whenever I was tired in reel life, but in real life, there is no action or cut (laughs).” (Also Read: Geeta Phogat's Sister Babita Phogat To Marry Fellow Wrestler, Gets Engaged And Make It Official)
