"Once daadi announced that Pallavi would be the family's daughter-in-law, everyone agreed. I'm happy that the family is happy and a little nervous too. She is a very sweet and simple girl. During our first meeting there were 10 others seated between us," Ankit told Mumbai Mirror.
Pallavi Shukla is reportedly a mechanical engineer based out of Bengaluru. "I've introduced her and her family to my work and life in Mumbai where she will live after marriage," Ankit, 31, told Mumbai Mirror, describing his first meeting with Pallavi in Mumbai as a 'private and personal affair.'
"Usually weddings in our family last 10-12 days, but Ankit doesn't have the time. His shows are booked months in advance and we worked around his dates," Ankit's older brother Ankur told Mumbai Mirror. The families will also host a reception in Mumbai once Ankit returns from his tour.
