Though the actor would have loved to keep it simple, the wedding will be a grand affair. “We are planning to get married sometime in February,” said Neil . If you ask me, I would ideally like to have an intimate wedding at a temple, with just close friends and family. But of course, I have to obey our families’ wishes. So, there will be an elaborate ceremony,” Neil added. The actor will throw a reception party for his friends in the film industry.
Neil, 34 and Rukmini, 27, got engaged in a ceremony attended by close family and friends on the occasion of Dussehra in October this year. “Neil is quite old school in his ways and is a firm believer in the traditional school of thought when it comes to the sacred institution of marriage. He left the decision of finding his soulmate in his parents’ trusted hands and there couldn’t have been a better match for him than Rukmini,” Neil’s father, Nitin Mukesh said in a statement to IANS.
Neil posted a beautiful picture of his wife-to-be after the engagement.
Just few days later, it was Karwa Chauth and Neil decided to fast for Rukmini. “Rukmini is quite traditional in her upbringing and I would like to support her wherever I can,” Neil said in a statement to IANS.
