Actor-filmmaker Kunal Kohli was one amongst the very few who attended the much-talked-about Varun Dhawan and Designer Natasha Dalal’s intimated wedding last month. After being in a relationship for several years, Varun and Natasha got married at The Mansion House in Alibaug on January 24.
About Varun and Natasha’s low-key nuptials, Kunal said, “Varun’s my cousin. Some people know it, some don’t. His mother and my mother are real sisters. I call her ‘Laali maasi’, he calls me ‘Kunnu bhaiyya’. We are both family. The whole idea was to just keep it to the close family and very, very close friends. There were four-five friends of his, whom everyone knows from school. We were sharing stories. It was very nice, a close-knit environment of friends like family and family-like friends. That was what was wonderful about it.”
The filmmaker also went on to praise the media for being mindful of Varun and Natasha’s personal space. He reportedly said that it was very nice of the media to even give them that privacy. Kohli revealed that he would step out in the morning with his daughter for a walk or something and the media would be there. They used to just chat happily and move on. According to him, everyone respected each other’s privacy.
I always say, ‘You can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends,’ and I am glad he has chosen his friends well. Likewise for Natasha. Both of them have a wonderful set of friends. It was just like one big family and we were all happy to be together in the privacy of everything,” he said.
Varun and Natasha’s wedding was a close-knit affair due to the Covid-19 restrictions. He shared pictures from the wedding on Instagram and wrote, “Life long love just became official.”
In his first tweet after the wedding, Varun thanked fans for showering him and Natasha with love. “The last few days me and Natasha have received so much love and positivity from everyone so just wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart,” he wrote.
