In future I will have a white wedding
I love beach wedding and would have planned for it but it gets expensive and hectic as well. And we didn't want limited people for our marriage as me being the only girl left in the family, parents wanted to celebrate it in a grand way. But I have decided when I complete five or ten years of marriage I will have a white wedding on a beach.

I am very good at balancing my personal and professional life
I gel with my in-laws very well. We eat, play games and watch movies together. Off lately we have been watching our wedding albums and videos. If my father in law doesn't meet me for three days I get a sweet message from him. My mother in law loves me very much whether I am on-screen, off-screen, pulling his son hair.
