The two started off as friends on Facebook from where they exchanged numbers and began chatting on WhatsApp Messenger which later gave way to mushy talks over regular phone calls. Flying down to India for a tour, Jelly has been in the country for two months now, during which the two found time to meet many times before finally tying the knot on Holi at Chitragupta Temple on the banks of the river Narmada. After completing all the rituals and customs integral to a Hindu wedding, the newly married played Holi, smearing each other playfully with colours.
