In an interview with the Times of India, Mreenal talked about her hush-hush wedding. Revealing how on their first date, Mreenal told Ashim that she wanted to get married, the actress said:

“Everything happened all of a sudden. We met and on our first date I told him I want to get married and he agreed to it. We started dating and within four months we got married. In the fifth month we had a reception. Now, my family will soon be having another reception. Everything happened so quickly that I couldn’t inform anyone, not even my close friends. I did not get time to react as I couldn’t believe that I could get married so soon. I’ve been waiting for the right person and suddenly I got married. And we are having two receptions in five months and it is like a dream.”


Going further in the interview, Mreenal also shared that she is 10 years older than her husband, and her in-laws didn’t agree to their match initially. Talking about the same, she said:

“I am 10 years older than my husband so initially, my in-laws, his family did not agree to our match. But then they realised we both are in love with each other and we are perfect for each other. Age is a problem, which I will have to level up my entire life. His family later on agreed as they know we are in love with each other. Initially, there were problems from his side, but after marriage everything has become normal and now we are a very big family. They accepted me as a part of their family. I have met all his extended family, cousins, everyone. They have officially accepted me.”
