I knew Anam is very filmi so I planned this grand proposal at Falaknuma Palace on August 27, after our engagement was announced by our family. We came on a chariot, the red carpet was rolled out for her, there were roses and all of that. Also, I got a tiara for her. And then, I went down on my knees and asked her ‘Will you marry me?’ as the violins played in the background. There were banners with ‘Will you marry me?’ too.”
