Speaking of the wedding and whether they will go for a three-city celebration, groom Ali told that they will decide on a date and schedule once they accept the 'new normal'. Saying the ceremony will most likely take place early next year, Ali revealed the reason behind choosing three cities for the festivities. "Let’s see when we are able to accept the new normal, then, we will decide on a date, maybe early next year. We came up with that plan only so our relatives wouldn’t have to travel. We wanted to tackle each side in their own city," he said.
