I called him after this conversation and asked him, ‘Do you believe in yourself, us? It’s a crucial day…either I will be in his life forever or not.’ I said, ‘I’m leaving my house now, if you love me come and pick me up’ and within 15 minutes he was under my house. We had a small ceremony in a temple – attended by his parents, Salman, Suraj ji, some of our friends and thus we got married. There was no one in marriage for me, except him. When I told my parents that I want to marry them, they did not agree. Parents have dreams for their children but children also have their own dreams and sometimes, their dreams should be allowed to live on. Because in the end, he has a life, he has a genie.”
