As a paratroopers sister one of the most difficult aspects of my life was to hear news like this knock on my door,a part of Army life is about saying Goodbyes, sometimes too often...MY BIG SALUTE TO BRAVE HEARTS WHO ATTAINED MARTYRDOM FIGHTING MILITANTS IN KASHMIR YESTERDAY. 🙏🏼🇮🇳

Of weddings, babies and more…

Of weddings, babies and more…

Dear readers,

First of all I would like to apologize for the delay in writing my this blog, you see I have been multitasking both physically and professionally. Of recently it was rather hilarious to shoot as a bride considering I (the bride) was 3 months pregnant with twins. Ha..ha .. it’s funny what pregnancy does to you, one changes into this 24 hour factory which works full throttle 24/7 to build another life (in my case two ha.. ha).

When news of our marriage surfaced, many falsely claimed that we got married only because we were expecting at that time. It was so shocking that people were more interested speculating then sharing and congratulating us on our joyous union. It is very sad and vicious of people to jump to such dishonourable conclusions. The intention was not to be secretive but to enjoy our event privately and not make it a public display of finery. A wedding is an intimate moment and we wanted it to really be our moment and no one else’s. Most people end up investing more in their “wedding” then in their “marriage”… As for reacting to rumours … it was really beneath my dignity to even respond to such senseless people. Firstly, we had just had a family tragedy recently secondly, as I said before, a wedding is an intimate moment and we wanted it to really be our moment.

The wedding was a fairytale wedding … it was a wedding even beyond my dreams. The crisp mountain air and gorgeous picture perfect scenery of Austria and the thousand year old monastery untouched by time… champagne and excellent food in presence of all our near and dear people made it a most memorable occasion. The funny thing is like all weddings some or the other hitch is always turning up in our case. Due to last minute visa challenges my family could not make it to the wedding in Austria, on top of that the designer who was entrusted with the blouses of the wedding saree had completely messed up and sent me a blouse which was made for probably someone with bazookas. My father-in-law was due to walk me down the aisle and give me away.

The night before the wedding I spent at my in-laws house and in the morning while dressing up much to the horror of the bridal assistants the blouse was not even my size. I was howling in my petticoats with my poor Austrian team not knowing how to fix the saree blouse. It was my father-in-law who knocked at the door, sat down with me and motivated me from stop crying and even offered to help me dress. He even helped me find a blouse which could go with the planned saree once I was calm. I guess I was the first bride to be helped get ready by her father-in-law…once ready I was driven away by my gorgeous father-in-law. Needless to say rest of the day was most magical.

More was yet to come… after a magical short honeymoon in gorgeous Italy when we got back we realized we are having honeymoon babies (that too at a trip to emergency when I was diagnosed with food poisoning). It sent the media into a whirl and people into a joyous speculation trip. Yet again we were put in an “explain yourself” situation instead of being congratulated. At the same time while I was in hospital dealing with a very difficult part of my first trimester I had to deal with everyone’s opinion being thrown at me and same for poor Peter. Why can’t people understand planning a family is bound to happen sooner or later when a couple gets married. Peter and I both love children a lot and cannot wait to have our own little bunnies, but would appreciate a little support here.

However would like you all to know that marriage is great and its wonderful to find that one person you can annoy for the rest of your life. (ha..ha..) I remember the only thing in my mind was what my grandmother told me over the phone just before the ceremony – Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate. So hopefully i will continue doing my bit to the hilt and am sure my beloved will too rest all is in Gods hands.

As for my work, well Marriage is the same for me as it is for any other working girl. Marriage is just another step towards embracing my womanhood. My work is “me” and I have no intentions at all of leaving it. I will be travelling between Dubai and Mumbai like many Hollywood colleagues who may live temporarily in various destinations and return for work whenever and wherever required. As an actor of today’s generation I am privileged to be enjoying this lifestyle. Dubai is anyways just a 2 1/2 hour flight. It’s faster sometimes to reach Dubai then to reach Colaba in Mumbai (ha ha)..

My next film goes on floor in July end and I am already preparing for it . The intention is to be a complete woman in every possible way. My mother-in-aw will be helping with the twins when I am on the sets. In fact I have been shooting even now and will take off only before I am due. I was recently in Mumbai for the shoot of a saree brand I endorse called Jashn and shot for 5 days, and now I am here back in UAE for the launch of Jashns first store in Abu Dhabi and will be back soon in India….

That’s the amazing charm of being a woman … she can do it all. Thank God I am a woman!! I am blessed!

    Its really well written about everything. You lucky you got such good in – laws and
    life partner. God bless you. we are awaiting good movies of yours. I twice went to
    purchase jashn sarees just because you are advertising it. If you do so much to beautify
    your inner and outer self I advise you to work on forehead and jaw – chin line to look
    as thinner as earlier. Rest everything is perfect. May be only change of hairstyle can
    make desired difference.
