The then-bride-and-groom had looked elegant in their understated attires.

In a conversation with The Times Of India in 2014, when Vidya Balan was asked if she is pregnant, she had said:
“I’m fed up with these rumours. These days people look at my stomach when they talk to me. Inshallah, I will have a baby—but not so soon. I’m not mentally ready for motherhood yet. It’s a daunting task to be responsible for another human being.”
She had further talked about motherhood and how she feels it has nothing to do with age. She had said:
“Motherhood has nothing to do with age. This is a predicament most working women face today since they are getting married in their 30s. Many of my friends have told me that it’s fulfilling to wake up in the morning and look at your baby, clean him/her up--but it’s all so consuming. This would leave you with little energy for anything else. I don’t know how I’ll deal with that.”
