New Delhi, Feb 9: Veteran singer Nitin Mukesh is emotional that his “darling” son Neil Nitin Mukesh is getting married in Udaipur later on Thursday. He says he could not have asked for a more humbling and a happy moment in his life. “I couldn’t have asked for a more humbling or happy moment. God has been so kind. We are getting my darling Neil married and I want to tell you this… What he has done for the family, for the family’s name and for his grandfather’s name… We owed him something, and that’s what we have done with his wedding,” Nitin told IANS over phone from Udaipur.
He was in tears and choked up as he spoke of his son’s wedding to Mumbai-based girl Rukmini Sahay. The couple got engaged at a Juhu hotel here on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra last year, and their wedding revelry has been going on in Udaipur since the last two days. “This evening, they become Mr. and Mrs. It is a very happy moment. My Neil is one of the best children… I wish him luck and happiness,” added the proud father, son of late legendary singer Mukesh. Talking about Rukmini, 27, he said: “Rukmini is just what we had dreamt for… She is just every bit of what we had dreamt for Neil. I hope they have a very happy life. I do want to see many grandchildren.”
Neil’s wedding has been a close-knit affair with family members and close friends attending the ceremonies. However, Nitin, who is the son of legendary singer Mukesh, is hoping to see the entire Hindi film industry at the reception in Mumbai on February 17. “The wedding has turned out only a 100 times bigger than what we had imagined or started off with love and adoration… This wedding will be remembered by all,” he added.
