Pyaar Ka Punchnama actress, Sonnalli Seygall has been enjoying a blissful marital life with her husband, Ashesh L Sajnani. Every now and then, the lovebirds drop glimpses of their life, and it is simply unmissable. For the unversed, Sonnalli and Ashesh exchanged vows on June 7, 2023, in an intimate wedding ceremony.

In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Sonnalli Seygall opened up about her first Ganpati celebration post her wedding. Talking about the same, the actress stated that she and her husband, Ashesh have been welcoming Ganpati Bappa to their home for the past seven years, however, this year is special. Elaborating more about it, she said:
"I have been celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi with Ashish for the past six or seven years. However, this year was extra special because I was officially doing all the rituals with him. It was very nice and beautiful."
In the same conversation, Sonnalli stated that this was the first year when she and Ashesh performed aarti together. Adding that they both have a lot of faith in Lord Ganesha, the actress mentioned that their Ganpati celebration witnessed a blend of cultures. In her words:
"Though for the last three years, it felt like we were married, but we never did aarti together. So, this year was the first time we did aarti together, and also performed visarjan together. We both are big believers of Lord Ganesha, and are in sync with the thoughts. They do Marathi chants at home as most of his staff is from Maharashtra, and I do Hindi chants because I am not fluent in Marathi."
Sonnalli also stated that only her and Ashesh's family members were part of the celebration. She also revealed how she added a personal touch to the food by adding each dish from Punjabi and Sindhi cuisine. The actress added that before her marriage, she used to arrive at Ashesh's house a day prior to look after the arrangements for the celebration.
