I wouldn't have wanted it in any other way."
The actor further said that his parents were not bothered by the pandemic wedding and continued, "They were extremely happy. The fact that I was getting married alone was enough motivation for them." Lastly, commenting on his married life, Rana said, "You get a feeling of being balanced, settled. The bond you share is a great source of calm as well as energy.

In a post-wedding interview with Neha Dhupia for her show, #NoFilterWithNeha, Rana Daggubati had revealed how he had met Miheeka Bajaj and had thrown some light on their love story. Rana had said, "I know Miheeka for a very long time because my sister and she went to school together. So, I’ve known her pretty much all my life and there’s only a handful of people who move from Hyderabad to Bombay. So, we got talking during lockdown and I said okay, this is right and that’s about it. So, when good things happen, I don’t question too much, I just go. Everyone’s got a timeline, it’s okay. That’s fine."
For the wedding, the gorgeous bride, Miheeka Bajaj had ditched the traditional red for shades of cream and gold for her elegant wedding attire. She had donned a breathtaking Anamika Khanna lehenga, which had taken 10,000 man-hours, as per the words of the designer. The coral veil of the lehenga had accentuated the whole look, and the hand-done zardosi with a fine work of chikankari and gold metalwork on the lehenga paired with a woven gold dupatta had perfectly matched with the theme.
