I'm really not into formal wedding: Mohit Suri

Mumbai, Jan 22 (IANS) Director Mohit Suri and actress Udita Goswami have decided to seal their nine-year-old relationship Jan 29. Suri says he is an unconventional guy but is doing the formalities for his lady love, who is in charge of the whole thing.

Director of films like "Kalyug" and "Murder 2", Suri said it was Udita who decided on the wedding date and venue along with her family.

"I went along happily on the condition that I'd be allowed to complete my shooting. Frankly, I am not into weddings. I have hardly attended any. Udita and I have been seeing one another for nine years. As far as I'm concerned, we are married to one another without the wedding," said Suri.

"To me the day we decided to get married is more important than the wedding itself. That decision to take the plunge didn't come easily to me. I remember you asking me in the past why Udita and I weren't getting married? I guess it had to happen when both of us were in the proper frame of mind," he added.

Marriage is an institution that Suri, 31, looks at with reverent curiosity.

"I don't come from a very conventional background. I've grown up on my own. I am not too conventional in thought or lifestyle. For someone to accept me the way I am, and to deal, live and bear with me for nine years is no small achievements. I am lucky to have Udita. She knows how to handle with me," he said.

Suri is busy shooting the climax of his latest film "Aashiqui 2", while his bride-to-be Udita, 28, is running around making the arrangements for their wedding.

"It almost looks like I'd have to go straight from my location after completing my film to the wedding venue at the ISKCON temple. I plan to somehow wrap up my films by Jan 25. For the next few days, guests would start arriving from Delhi for the wedding," said Suri.

Understandably he is divided in his attention between completing a precious project and starting in the new phase of his life.

Said the appreciative groom-to-be: "The fact is, Udita can tolerate me even after knowing me for nine years and if she still wants to get married to me it's in spite of knowing the kind of person that I am. She knows if I come to the wedding without completing the film, I'd be very depressed. She is, therefore, taking care of all the details of the wedding."

Udita, who worked in films like "Paap" and "Zeher", would continue to be part of the entertainment industry, though not as an actress, Suri tells us.

"If she wants to continue acting, I am all for it. I come from a family of actors. My sister Smiley is an actress. Emraan Hashmi's and my grandmother Poornima Verma was a very well-known actress of her time. Actually, she was the first star of our family," said Suri.

"Somewhere she (Udita) wants to settle down, enjoy matrimony and start a family. Neither of us is a teenager any more. But yes I'd like her to keep working. It would keep her motivated. Udita may be going into the production side of cinema."

Wedding invitations would go out only to close friends.

"I've a few friends in the film industry like Imran Khan. But as I said, I am really not into formal weddings. Udita wanted a formal wedding. I'd have been okay with a court marriage."

The marriage would be followed by an informal reception at the Turf Club on January.

"Rather than a formal wedding reception with the couple sitting on stage, I am having a sundown party. It would be a lazy relaxed evening of music and merry-making with family and friends. And then we're off for a few days somewhere for a brief honeymoon," he said.

"Right now I am too hassled with shooting my film's climax. But we'll go for a proper holiday for a month after my film releases. I haven't taken a break for a very long time."
