We will marry in a ceremony attended by family members and close relatives. On the same evening, a reception will be organised. I am very happy that I am marrying a girl who is more like a friend and understands me, Krunal told The Times of India. She is a friend of my friend. We met at a common gathering two years ago and developed a liking for each other. We both are of same age and get along a lot. What I like about her is her simplicity and supportive nature .
