When asked about his father, the veteran actor Milind Gunaji, he said, “My father has always supported my choices and encouraged me to pursue my dreams. He was the most supportive when I decided to make a switch from my IT tech background to pursue a career in filmmaking. His only insistence being that I give it my best. This holds true even when it comes to marriage and interpersonal relationships.”
The proud father, Milind Gunaji spoke up about getting a new member to the family. He said, "Radha is more like a daughter to us than a daughter-in-law. All our friends and family are truly thrilled to welcome her as a part of the family. Due to Covid-19 protocols, we could only have our closest friends and family members join the celebration but the evening was truly special for us."
Abhishek Gunaji went to add some more about what he has imbibed from his father. He said, “Always strike the right balance between your public and private life. He has always managed to do it very effectively and that was the whole idea behind having an intimate Temple wedding and a Reception for everyone in Mumbai.”
Weddings are said to be magical as they are remembered throughout one’s life. Talking from his experience, Abhishek Gunaji said, “Mangalashtaka sung during the garland exchange ceremony (would be the most special moment). Although I have heard them in the past, the verses and music overwhelmed me since it made me realise what an important step I'm taking in my life with someone I love.”
