One Night Stand star and veteran actress Rati Agnihotri's son Tanuj Virwani is all set to tie the knot on Christmas this year. Unlike the many celeb weddings, Tanuj has zeroed down his Lonavala farmhouse for his intimate wedding with his non-celeb fiancee Tanya Jacob. Recently, in a media chat, the actor revealed his wedding plans, the theme, and the guest list for his big day.

Tanuj Virwani to tied the knot at his Lonavala farmhouse

In an interview with Free Press Journal, the Code M star revealed his wedding plans and said, "I'm excited. I feel positive and sure-footed. I know I have made the right choice, also at the right time and with the right person. A lot of people have been asking me if I'm feeling butterflies in my stomach, but not yet. It could change maybe on the wedding day but right now I'm as cool as a cucumber. My entire family has been enthusiastic and charged up. They want to be involved in every facet of planning the wedding and it's so nice that everyone's coming together for the celebration."

Tanuj to have a Christmas-themed wedding

As Tanuj and his fiancee Tanya are tying the knot on December 25, a day that coincides with Christmas, the couple have decided to give their wedding a Christmas theme. Opening up about the preparations, Tanuj said, "When we were planning, December 25 came up as one of the most auspicious dates. I thought it would be nice to have a Christmas theme and everything white, red, and green. It was a no-brainer that we wanted to have it at our farmhouse in Lonavala as the place is very close to my heart and I've been coming here since I was a kid."


He added, "We've kept the guest list full of people who are close and who have made a difference to our lives. But it's going to be a lot of fun. The day itself is so special that we don't have to really have to go out of our way to do anything extra. It is such a special and sacred moment."

Tanuj-Tanya wants an intimate wedding

In the same interview, Tanuj opened up about how he and his fiancee were on the same page with the kind of wedding they wanted for them. Speaking about the same, the 37-year-old actor said, "Luckily, both of us have been in sync with the kind of wedding that we want. With all due respect to people who like having fancy and lavish weddings, we wanted something smaller and more intimate. It is reflective of who we are."

He further said, "I'm probably a lot more extroverted than Tanya but as time has passed and as I became a little bit wiser, I realised that you have to know your true well-wishers. I didn't want to have a circus or a mela. It's very easy to call 500 people but it is also a private time for me and as much as I love sharing it with the media, my family and friends, I wanted it to be intimate."

Tanuj-Tanya and their Love Tale


Tanuj also talked about the time when he met his corporate professional fiancee and how they have known each other for a decade now. He said, "We've known each other for a long time. I met her a decade back when she was in Mumbai. Our families also know each other very well. Even when Tanya shifted back to Singapore, we kept in touch."

The actor added, "As time went by, we realised that our goals, aspirations, and what we expect from life were in alignment. We didn't want to spend the next few years dating and figuring things out. We gave it a real thought and decided to take things forward. That's how everything was initiated and the rest is history."
