The Shakti-Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki actress was quoted as saying, “I am feeling neither nervousness nor excitement, as the preparations for the wedding and my ongoing TV show shoot schedules have left me numb (laughs). Coordinating things is very difficult. I have hardly slept for four to five hours a day in the last one-and-a-half months. Abhinav and I have decided to exchange seven vows after the traditional wedding. I have written mine and I hope he has too”.

Talking about the superhit wedding and starting this new journey of life together, an elated Abhinav Shukla said, "Well, I couldn’t have been happier! Everything went off very well and we are so blessed to have got so much love and wishes from all those who are close to us. Rubina and I have been together since so long and she understands me completely. I am blessed to have her as my wife and I can’t wait to start this journey with her."
For the ones who don’t know, Rubina’s wedding gift for Abhinav is immaterial and priceless. Well, the actress turned a lyricist and singer and decimated a song named, Ek Navvi Zandagi. Talking to SpotboyE about the same, Rubina revealed, “It all began 3-4 months back jab hamari shaadi ki date finalise hui thi. Main tabse soch rahi thi ki wedding gift kya doongi main Abhinav ko? I wanted to give him something immaterial. And I had been learning a bit of music, as and when mujhe apni shooting se time milta tha. So, I thought – what if I gift him a song?”
She further added, “Beech beech main I would write 4-5 lines ka poem for him. Just as and when, to just surprise him. I would text these lines to him. I’m pretty good at poetry and prose. I had a few lines with me, that I had penned as a poem for him and I thought why not translate them into a song? And maybe if it goes per plan, I thought I could gift it to him on our wedding”.
