When Geeta Basra was asked about her wedding during the promotion of her last film, ‘Second Hand Husband’ the actress neither deny nor answer the question directly, she replied, Don’t read so much into it. It’s a fun appearance, not a wedding announcement. When I get married, I won’t do it chup-chup ke. I’ll announce it from the rooftops.

He loves his game. I want to learn that from him,” Basra said.
