'I have been kept out of all the preparations'
Where are you going for your honeymoon?
We are taking just a four-day break. The destination is not decided yet. But it will be somehere quiet and peaceful. It has to be in India since I have to return in four days and resume shooting.
How are the preparations coming along?
A lot of things are happening. But I have been kept out of it. I just have to attend all the functions. Everybody else is taking care of all the arrangements. Mujhe to bas shaadi karni hai (All I have to do is get married).

'Amitabh Bachchan is coming for the wedding on June 14'
They go back a long way. I've worked out with him in Mumbai. Believe me, it was the toughest workout session I've ever gone through. Salman made sure I didn't feel lonely in Mumbai.

'Salman and my father go back a long way'
Everybody has taken a break from work to be part of the preparations. It's like a family wedding for them. And considering this is the last wedding in my family -- my two sisters are married -- there is a lot of excitement.
She was my best friend. Then we started dating two years back. So I am marrying my best friend. I couldn't have asked for more.

'I was pampered by all my father's directors and producers as a kid'
How does she get along with your family?
You know, when I told her I am building a separate home for us at the Golf Course area for us to live in after marriage, she put her foot down. She insists we stay with my parents.
That is so considerate.
Well, she had an ulterior motive. She says she can't handle me alone. She needs my parents' help.
So are you a spoilt brat at home?
I was pampered by all my father's directors and producers during childhood. But at home my father made sure I led a normal life. I grew up with a huge expectation hovering over my career as an actor. Luckily for me, I managed to create an identity of my own early on.
