“I was kind of 'Yeh ladki meri wife banegi'. My friend Mahendra Joshi was with me. He told me, 'Tujhe pata hai tu jis company mein kaam kar raha hai us boss ki beti hai woh'. Toh maine bola, 'Kisi ki bhi beti ho, behen ho, ma ho, main iske saath shaadi karunga'.”

"After 2-3 months, I told her, 'I want to marry you but don't tell me 'let's get to know each other, let's grow together'. Marte dum tak koi kisiko nahi jaan sakta. Toh mere saath woh futile exercise mat karo. Commit yourself. But we got married after 12 years."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my wedding. It took place in the Lakshmi Narayan temple compound in Mumbai. We had around 9 pundits chanting shlokas for us and an elaborate vidhi. Unlike most brides, I enjoyed the food too. My family was witnessing a daughter's wedding after 129 years and so I had instructed them not to be emotional."
For the unversed, Paresh Rawal and his wife, Swaroop Sampat, are parents to two talented sons, Anirudh Rawal and Aditya Rawal.
