Earlier confirming her roka, Priya stated to an online portal, “It was love at first sight for Kawal, who told our common friend that he wants to marry me. He spoke to his family about me and requested my friend to get me to speak with my family, too. Soon, our families met and the roka was held on February 13. At first, I was sceptical about an arranged marriage as I didn’t know him too well. But after meeting him a few times, I realised that he is family-oriented. Like me, he is also old-school. In fact, he met my entire family before the roka, including the extended one.” (Also Read: Ankita Karan Patel Flaunts Her Baby Bump At Anita Hassanandani And Rohit Reddy's House-Warming Party)
