In an interview, she talked about how she decided to marry Abhinandan and said,
This is going to be an arranged marriage. We met on a matrimonial site and started talking. During the lockdown last year my mom just in a fun way, jokingly made my profile and she was like let’s get you married. Arranged marriage was never in my mind. But it is happening. My mom created my profile and since during the lockdown I didn’t have the option of going out and finding the love of my life, I thought it’s fine if I find it through a matrimonial site.”
