What Ameesha said
Talking with Siddharth Kannan for a new interview on his YouTube channel. Ameesha said, “Sanju is my family. He also says, ‘Ameesha you are too good for this industry, mein nikal de raha hu tujh ko (I am pushing you out of this industry). You are too simple, you are too naive, tu chal mein shaadi karvata hu teri (I will get you married). He is always trying to hook me up from the beginning. Since 20 years, he has been trying to find me a correct match and he always says, ‘Ye bachchi hai (she’s a kid), give her toys. This is the way to her heart.’”
Sanjay wants to do kanyadaan
The actor further added how Sanjay also wants to do kanyadaan when she gets married. “He tells this to everyone to impress me. Couple of guys have come to me after listening to Sanjay and I have rejected them and Sanju always says, ‘Jab teri shaadi hogi na kanyadaan mein karunga (I will perform kanyadaan when you get married) and I will be very happy when you get married. Your kids will play with my kids.’ He is like one of those guys,” she said.
