“I have grown up here, and it's my good fortune that we could plan the celebration here. This is my dadi's janmbhoomi and my dada and papa's karmbhoomi. And this is my home. My father often says that this is my dada's sasural (in-laws' house), and hence we are celebrating here. I also believe I am from Jamnagar, yahin ka nagarik hun,” Anant said during an exclusive interview with India Today.

Anant also said that he was inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ‘Wed in India’ call. “It's a matter of pride and happiness when our PM said that one should get married in India,” he said during the interview.
