'Jaya is also going with you... you both are alone... yes... if you have to go, marry and go'," Big B penned on his blog post.

I dress up in formal marriage Indian... get into my car and want to drive to Malabar Hill where her friends lived and where the ceremony was to be done... my driver Nagesh, pushes me out and insists he would drive me to the wedding... the substitute for the tradition horse."
Big B added, "And it begins to drizzle... neighbours rush out to me... leave for the wedding now ... the rain is a good omen... off I went... wedding over in a few hours... done... Mr and Mrs proclaimed... over!"
