When asked about his marriage plans, he confessed, " I don't have the time to search for a girl. But I would prefer a love match." He also adds that his mother is searching a suitable match for him, and he is ready to take the plunge!
He said. "I want to get married, and my ammi (mom) wants me to get married soon. I am 38, and like they say, "Dulha hansta hua achcha lagta hai, khansta hua nahin" (a groom should be smiling not coughing). Marriage is a contract, as kundalis are matched, the boy's finances are looked at, and other things are taken into considerations."
Well, we can only hope that Anas finds his perfect match soon!
