We are opting for simple rituals and nothing elaborative. There will be kanyadan, warmala, pheras, sindoor and mangalsutra – the common ones that we have (in the cultures that both follow).” She added that her honeymoon is on hold till 2022: “No plans yet! I immediately report back to work. Honeymoon has to be kept on hold till 2022.”
