She also told her that if they were to turn up late for the wedding, she would be charging a fine of Rs. 5 lakhs per minute of delay. In her words:
“I have a humble request to make. Kathurias are people who are very late and Motwani’s are very punctual. If you come late today, you must pay me Rs 5 lakh for every minute of delay. I make this request because the inauspicious hour is between 4:30 p.m to 6 p.m. So I request if you could come a little early.”
In the same episode, we also came across a moment when Hansika Motwani opened up on her first feeling once she saw her then-groom, Sohael waiting at the wedding altar. Recalling the moment, Hansika elaborated on how it was the most surreal feeling she ever had. In her words:
“It was so surreal. It hit me so hard and I was like I am getting married to the love of my life. It was the best feeling. Things are getting real. I am getting married. I don’t know how to explain it. And it was just something so different and I broke down.”
