Soundarya: “We are very compatible and feels like I’ve known him forever. So by God’s Grace let’s hope in a forever. Yes, it was an arranged marriage. A dear friend of my father mentioned to him about Vishagan. At that stage I did not want to get into a commitment yet. But there was a divine intervention when we met for the very first time. The series of our meetings made me say that this is the boy I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Vishagan made me feel very comfortable and at home. We knew each other for around five months and decided to get married within that span of time. We had a lot of restrictions too – we couldn’t go out too much and enjoy the dating experiences. But we had the trust and hence, we just wanted to get married as soon as possible. Honestly, his family is beautiful. The time I met them, I felt like I came home.
“He is one of the most realistic and honest people in this world – he is super genuine. The most romantic trait in Vishagan is that he accepts the way I am. I am grateful that my parents stood by me like two strong pillars during this wedding and I am super grateful about the fact that God blessed me with such solid parents.”
“I wanted to get married in my dad’s home but due to security reasons we had it at a hotel.”
Vishagan: We first met at a coffee shop. My impression of Soundarya was that she was absolutely bold, dynamic and charismatic. She is out and out the most loving person in this world. She is so affectionate that its unexplained. She is also the most romantic.
Relationship with Dhanush and Aishwarya:
Soundarya: I wanted Dhanush and my sister to interview Vishagan before he met my parents. And for me it was like a reassurance. However, they got along with each other better than me. I am blessed beyond words to have three beautiful men in my life. We both have been through a lot and life has not been easy, but we had the ability to move on.”
Vishagan: Dhanush prepared me before I visited my father-in-law. He said that everything would be overwhelming. He asked me to be cool and composed while asking for his daughter’s hand.
On Soundarya’s parents and Ved:
Soundarya: “Ved took a liking the first time he met Vishagan. I showed him Vishagan’s picture and said “see daddy”. Vishagan is very patient with Ved. It was the Muhurtham time and Ved wasn’t at the Mandapam yet. I was really tensed but Vishagan turned towards me and said, “I will not marry you until Ved arrives.” Ved feels a sense of protection with Vishagan and that’s what I needed. We wanted our kid to see and know everything. Vishagan actually asked permission from Ved if he could marry me and we have taken a video of that. We will show Ved the video once he turns 18.”
Vishagan: “I call Soundarya’s father Appa. The first time I met him, he was super calm so it was easy for me to converse with him. He is so affectionate towards me. She is out and out the most loving person in this world. She is so affectionate that its unexplained. She is also the most romantic. When calls me daddy, it gives me a lot of happiness and a sense of responsibility.”
