He says he is “completely in love” with his 27-year-old fiancee.
“Our chemistry is outstanding. She understands that I am a little bit of a prankster. I have a habit of joking around and sometimes people don’t understand my jokes. They might get offended sometimes, but she instantly understood the kind of person I am and laughed at every point.
“She completely understands me in that sense. I love her for that,” he said.
The Mukesh family is joyous about the new addition, who has won their hearts “with her simplicity and upbringing”.
