The actor took to Twitter to share a video recounting his precious memories leading up to his proposal. He said:

Anil also disclosed details about their spontaneous intimate wedding in an Instagram post. He wrote:
“How 19th May became the best day of our lives!”
“I proposed to my girlfriend Sunita and asked her to be my wife.
“Our wedding had been delayed a lot because I wanted to be sure that I could take care of her in the way she deserved and give her everything she could dream of … in the very least, I needed to be able to afford to buy a house and hire a cook!!
“I just wanted to be worthy of her … we got married on 19th May, against all odds.”
Anil continued to recall the moment he entered Sunita’s house on their wedding day. He said:
“I still remember when I entered her house on our wedding day and saw my bride, she was smiling and I had tears in my eyes … tears of happiness, but also nervousness.
“I mean it was my wedding day! Our wedding was planned and executed within a day and yes, we may not have had a big wedding or even a honeymoon, which she still teases me about, but it was still the best thing that ever happened to me.
“It was now or never for us and I’m so glad we took the leap of faith that day and started our lives together.”
Anil further acknowledged how people warned him against marrying so young because it would tarnish his acting career. He said:
“Many people prophesied that marrying so early would be disastrous for my career, but all I knew was that I did not want to waste another day without her and wanted her to be by my side through it all.
“For us it was never career or love … it was always love AND career.
“I won’t say in the end we lived happily ever after … because it is not even close to the end of our love story.
“We still have a lot of love to share together, forever.”
